Good morning, and welcome to another challenge from Paperartsy - Abstract. A wide open challenge to stretch the mind... but the awful tragedy in Paris on Friday night is the starting point for this journal page.
I was talking to my friend Sam on FB last night and it turns out that the sites of the restaurant and rock concert attacks were really close to where we stayed in Paris when we went to Version Scrap last year - I had thought the streets looked familiar on the news, but then there are lots of streets like that all over the city. It makes it all so much more real, when you can completely relate to something like this.
I have no step by step photos, this came together really fast this morning.... hence, it's not my finest work, but it just had to go down on the page.
I started with red white and blue, the colours of the French flag (and our own of course)
the sentiment is from Dina Wakely's hearts set, and the eye, is by Limor Webber for Indigo Blu
Mark and Leandra's daughter Courtney was in Paris at the time, but safe and is now back home, for which we are all grateful.
