Good Morning on this Friday morning blog friends!
A while ago I saw a photo on Pinterest that both me and one of my biggest Scrapping Idols both liked and that set me thinking how different would the two of us scrap the same photo....? After putting the challenge out to her, I am so delighted to have had Heather Jacob join me in scrapping this photo!!!
The photo gave me a feeling of a French side walk café, hence the title...I could have gone two ways with the design, soft and elegant looking but in the end opted for the rustic earthy colours and feel! We both used Kaisercraft's Base Coat Collection. I tried to create a cobblestoned Café scene with my papers and modelling pastes. Hope you will enjoy a walk along my street....
I gave the Streetlamp from Prima's Shabby Chic Treasures a coating of brown and black inks. And some Distress stickles on the glass.
I glued a piece of the Bricks paper onto my background, which was lightly stamped, and then applied coarse Texture Gel and Modelling Paste around the edges. I inked the paste with some Vintage Photo re-inker. Interesting, I find that adding the re-inker gives the paste a cement like texture.
The pots are from a sheet of Flower Soft pots, also added some paste on them as well. The flowers are a sprig of Prima Engraver Flowers.
Don't know why, but ever since I got the Prima Wooden Door embellishment, I wanted to break one and have the distressed look of it...Think it adds to the antique, vintage feel I was aiming for with this LO.
I fuzzy cut some rocks and added paste to them as well...
Lol...on facebook this photo had my friends reaching for their dinner plates for they saw Steak and Bacon and Tjops and Biltong in it...even some Tea and Toast...!!! And I was actually aiming for the Brownies with Chocolate Sauce look...!
This then was my walk down a little French Village road...hope you enjoyed and will come back soon for another visit?
The only thing wrong with doing nothing
is that you never know when you're finished.
