Inspired by…

Hi all!!  It’s time for a new Inspired by Sketch Challenge at Sketch-N-Scrap.  Here is the Inspired by Sketch #3:


I love this artsy sketch!!!  Here is my Paris layout based on it, titled BHV:


The building in the photo is the Bazar de l’Hotel de Ville.  It is a department store that includes a  home and hardware section, sections devoted to beauty and and fashion,  as well as a section for pet accessories.   The Parisians refer to it as BHV.   To the left is a beautiful double-decker carrousel called Carrousel, la Belle Epoque.  It is one of many carrousels thoughout the city.


Love the sheen on these gold Thickers.  The hounds tooth photo corner is by Teresa Collins, He Said She Said.


A little cluster of Jenni Bowlin Studio.  I used the Pot of Gold sequins, the File This punch, Tiny Trims Revised in gold, and a label from the Black Skinny Alphas.


Here I layered this lovely JBS Reader Flatback over my favorite Webster’s Pages trims.


I had so much fun experimenting with mists on this layout.  I first sprayed Mister Huey’s Opaque White, then I dripped on the Heirloom Blue, and added another layer of the Opaque White to give variation to the blue.  Finally, I drip, drip, dripped gold Color Shine!!

  3. Nice take on the sketch and great layout ! Did you go to the Printemps ? There’s a little café on the top under the beautiful dome…

    • No, unfortunately we didn’t. The cafe sounds wonderful though and I will put it on my list of things to do if I ever make it back to Paris. At the time I was just all about seeing the art museums, but doing the research on all these pictures of my trip makes me relize how much I missed and how much more there is I want to see and do!!! 🙂
