I do have a French connection, one of my brothers married a French girl and they live near Paris with their family. I’ve never visited France though even though I always love to see my brother and his family when they visit England. We had French lessons when I was at school, but I didn’t get on with it very well so I can’t even speak basic French, I’m a typical Brit and can only speak English! Shame on me, my brother and his family are all bi-lingual.
This spread came about because I wanted some script on my pages and I haven’t got a script rubber stamp. I found this hand written letter in French on the internet and then found images that I thought would compliment it. For the background I used various shades of blue acrylic and water colour and stamped over it with white ink. I don’t think you can see it online, but the lady from the Folies Bergeres was coloured in with glitter pen and on the page she really sparkles. I quite like the effect but I think I need to try and find a way to lighten my pages, they all look too dark to me.
