My Love of Paris!

More of My PARIS Chipboard Book!

and 

The Paris Chipboard Album includes chipboard pages, rings and the laser cut Eiffel Tower pictured above.
This week I painted  the chipboard pink using craft paint (page 3). Distressed it with brown ink.  Since it would be hard to get the detail of the Eiffel if I covered the page with pattern paper I tore a piece of pattern paper just shy of the image, distressed and adhered.  Then adhered the Eiffel Tower Laser included in the kit image from Want2Srcap with Sakura Crystal Lacquer. Once I had it in position I covered the Eiffel Tower with Sakura Crystal Lacquer and set aside to dry overnight. Covering with the lacquer Eiffel Tower protects it from getting destroyed with use.
Here is the cover I created in my last post and the Eiffel Tower from page 3.  
Up close of the Eiffel Tower after the Sakura Crystal Lacquer has dried.
Next I with Sakura Crystal Lacquer adhered a lady from my vintage French postcard collection. Added a few Prima Flowers. 
On the opposite page I added a light coat of Sakura Crystal Lacquer with Terri Spourl's Mixer - Gold to give the page a more vintage look. The picture of the Eiffel Tower is adorned with one of Want2Scrap Nestabling Fancy Tags!  
Here I have sparingly added a little ink to distress the flowers. With my fingers add a smidgen of Sakura Crystal Lacquer to them and sprinkled with Terri Sproul's Ultra Fine Glitter.
