Today I've been playing with some of the gorgeous reversible papers from the Graphic 45 12 x 12 pad, Artisan Style. These are the sort of papers that seem to be too beautiful to use, and yet are so wonderful to handle and create with that once you start, you just can't stop.
The rows of buildings were fussy cut from one of the sheets and layered up with the half row less raised than the full one, with the reverse of the same sheet being used for the bottom layer of backing. The upper background paper is from a sheet representing architectural blueprints in art deco style, as is the black swirl in the bottom corner. And the sentiment and its layering are cut from snippets of other sheets, left over from a different project.
I'm playing along with this week's challenge at Make My Monday, as the theme is Architecture.
