Oh Paris!

Hi everyone.  Happy second half of the weekend. 

May has started off a bit windy in my area, but today it is at least supposed to be a little warmer than yesterday.  Plus the sun is shining.  

Today I have some assorted art to share with a Paris theme. I'll begin with this tag for Country View Challenge with the new theme of We Will Always Have Paris. 

Tags are a great way to warm up my creative muse. This one was made with lots of ink and stamps, as well as that pretty blue flower.

I am also going to link up to the Anything Goes challenge at Tag Tuesday that Valerie has chosen.

And since I'm on a Paris theme, how about some Paris inspired art?

This is my link to Bleubeard and Elizabeth's   Second on the Second post  as this little cloth interfacing book was posted in May of 2009.

Here's the links to the original posts: Friday, May 1, 2009 and Saturday May 2, 2009.

And of course, my Paris book has a few French words. Which is a language, so if you have a language  art journal page, you should join this month at Art Journal Journey and Elle's language challenge.

Hope you are having a great start to both the new month and your weekend. 
Thanks for visiting.

You certainly had Paris on your mind today. From the brand new beautiful tag to the second look, which was a first look for me, you brought Paris to the forefront. Thanks for sharing this incredible second look with us because I absolutely adore fabric books. I love the sewing and using the interfacing made this special.

Your tag is definitely Parisian with the little Eiffel tower and is that a French fleur-de-lis? I've never made a tag and this is quite inspiring.
How I would love to have this cloth book in my hands. Each page is a delight.
The last page seems to have a lovely 3D silver flower and I like the little flower pins on the second last photo and the fabric letters on the cover and just about everything else.

Bonjour! I love this tag. The colors are great and that central fleur de lis is perfect and the spring flower and Eiffel Tower... The perfect piece for Paris art :) That little book is fascinating. All the elements go so well together. I have very little French but enough to read this. Cool!

Jeanie said...

Well, you know anything with Paris pushes all my happy buttons so how do I feel looking at this post? Very happy!

Beautiful projects Erika, I love your Paris tag!
It's windy here too, and we're finally getting some rain after a very dry April.
Hope you're having a good week,
