Paris Is Always A Good Idea. True Story.

Hello, Everyone!!   Today, I have a fun, Paris-inspired project to share with you!

I got a bit grungy, and created this fun, altered frame I found at my local thrift store.

When I found this treasure, it was a lovely shade of navy, but a bit of crackle, a bunch of paint and some Rub 'n Buff later, and I had achieved some seriously shabby shine!
Then, I piled on the embellishments.  Well, this is piled!  For me.

I've even tucked my own 'sweet nothing' in the mini envelope...
All of this Parisian shabby-ocity serves as the perfect palette for, Sophie.  Dress Me Up Sophie, to be specific.   You can find her HERE in the Sweet Nothings Stamp Co. shop!

I've printed and colored her up on a lovely, French book page.  It kinda gives her this soft, muted look.  LOVE!!  If you wanna see how I got the look, hop on over and check out my video HERE

Thanks for joining me today!! And remember, Paris is always a good idea ;-)



  1. How amazing Mary! I love that you printed this on a book page...I would love to try the technique out some that ok? :) Do you print onto copic card stock too? Love it! xx

    1. Thanks, Alyce! And, yes, please do give it a try :-) I have a little how to tut for this particular look, but it's so fun to play with different mediums and filters to achieve different looks. Have fun!!

  2. You are so amazing.. I love all your stuff!!
