Ah Paris, the city of Love!

Inspiration Avenues challenge "I Love Paris" is brought to us
 beautifully by our IA sister Hettienne.
 Hettienne's wonderful photos and descriptions of Paris 
have me longing to go and experience it for myself! 
Oh, please check out her personal blog for 
another gorgeous tour of Paris! 
~+~
I tried 2 other pieces but they didn't feel right, this one
is much closer to the feeling I wanted to capture.

I created a traditional collage and then played around with it  
giving it old fashioned romantic vintage feel

Here are 3 versions




( this one makes me think of French Toile!) 

It's not too late to enter the I Love Paris challenge yourself!
Hope to see you in Paris!
and
thank you so much Hettienne for the inspiration!
