I'm travelling into a new way of working, a new country, a new language, and a new hobby which I'm passionate about. Come with me for some of the journey...

A quick trip to Paris...



Ah, if only!  

No, I'm afraid it's just a short hop over to Artistic Outpost where I'm sharing my (now monthly only) project.

It's my first time playing with the lovely Paris Exposition stamp set, so I hope you enjoy the quick trip to Paris... Bon Voyage!

A walk about Paris will provide lessons in history, beauty, and in the point of life.
Thomas Jefferson

You can't escape the past in Paris, and yet what's so wonderful about it is that the past and present intermingle so intangibly that it doesn't seem to burden.
Allen Ginsberg

Love the tag! The stamps capture the moment and you are so right to let them speak for themselves! The little additions you made are so apt! The quotes you have here take me to Paris instantly - time for another trip soon methinks! Chrisx

Had a friend who went to Paris and said everyone was very rude there. So I said, "Kinda of like home, eh?"
She said ruder than self absorbed Arizonians. That's pretty rude. But I shall gladly visit Paris in your artwork. Homie ain't getting on no planes!

Coco said...

I love Paris too of course, and this stamps set is very beautiful. Also your other 'French' elements, perfect indeed! Gorgeous tag Alison! Hugs, Coco xx

Your tag is marvelous! Such a great design to let the stamps shine! I love the ads clipped to the sides, and I'm hoping no balloonists were harmed in the creative process!
