Beauty Contains Beauty

We’re back in Paris today; in the Musee d’Orsay.

The Musee d’Orsay was one of my most favorite museums in Paris.  The building itself, is a former railway station, which contains mostly Modern Art.  In our short visit, we actually went there twice.  Today I’m using kits from Things That Shine to preserve this beautiful memory.  I mainly used the Celebrate Summer kit with the addition of one of Ashley’s handmade gorgeous glittery bows.


I hadn’t scrapbooked in about three weeks and I was feeling pretty rusty before I began this layout.  So, I decided to use Sketch #64 from my friends at Sketch-N-Scrap.  There is nothing like a sketch to get you back in the groove again.  It didn’t take long for the ideas to start flowing and the layout to take shape.

A closer look….


I had been hoarding this JBS clock rub-on just for these picture, but I never though I would rub it on the gold-dotted MME vellum and layer it with these wonderful elements from Things That Shine.  The leather doily is from the Celebrate Summer kit, the seal and gold tag come packed with the glitter bow embellishment, and the red sequin is from the Pop of Red embellishment pack.


And here is that gorgeous bow that comes two to a pack.  I tucked a Things That Shine tag behind it and added some red twine.


I love this multi-colored triangles washi from the Celebrate Summer kit, which acts like arrows on this layout.  I layered it over some scrap painted paper that I saved and tucked under the polka dotted fabric tape, also from the kit.


Texture, layers, drops, and a label.  I am amazed at all the goodness that comes in Ashley’s kits. It makes scrapping so much fun!

For more Things That Shine pop over the Ashley’s blog.  While you’re there why not sign up for the Things That Shine newsletter and mailing list to keep you in the shiney loop.
