Multi photo scrapping layout - Eiffel of A View

I am determined to try and finish one album as, probably like many other people, I seem to jump from one project to another. I have been concentrating on my Paris album which is mainly hybrid layouts and in a 8 1/2 x 11 size as I wanted to try something different. I will use my Cricut to bind it all at the end. This album is also a thrifty album as I have bought nothing new for it and have been making a lot of the backgrounds. This one is no different. I knew it had to be a double page but did not have enough of the blue patterned paper so decided to use it on one side and then a strip on the other page. To tie the pages together I stamped   a text based stamp from TH Shabby French all over both pages.
I didn't have enough letters for the badly punned title so used a old letter sheet to draw the title on with. I then water coloured the title and embossed it with Blonde Moments Powder. To make it more like the French blue enamel I drew a thin outline of white. 
I created journalling tags and the camera, pocket and old style postcard from images I found on Graphics Fairy. I am trying to use some of these on most pages to give the album some kind of cohesive look.
I added some old lace, stamping, buttons and more of the blue paint which I also painted around all the photos to try and tie it all together.

It seems a little unbalanced and the photos are squint despite my best efforts but...


  1. ITs a great layout. Love the lettering and soft colours. I still have to finish lots of books. I am just all over the place right now(I think I have at least 10 books started.)Some Great photos in your layout too. Thanks for sharing and have a great day. Angela
