This layout is different from the ones I've been making lately. I was inspired by a challenge I saw over at True XOXO Scrapbooking. The word of the month is "black"..nothing more, nothing less and we were to take inspiration from the DT's work. Well I'd never done a "dark" layout before..most of mine are fairly bright and lighthearted since I'm usually scrapping my kids so I liked the push that this gave me. I was also inspired by Cheryl's LO which had different textures and mediums to make the different elements stand out.  Here's my take:

I pulled out my arsenal of black and dark grey anything that I had and went to work. My silhouette came in super my Eiffel Tower, cat, bicycle, title and lampost from it. Then I took each item and altered it with paints, embossing powders, crackle paints, mists, stickles..seriously so much fun!! I especially love how the lampost turned out looking so antique :D  This page represents a goal of someday visit Paris with my hubby...because although he and I have already been to Paris, we've somehow managed to never be there together! Tfl!!

PS if anyone is interested in how I altered any of my embellies, I'd be more than happy to explain:)
