Big Easy Layout with Wings

Finally...back to scrapping.  I used CTMH B&T papers from the Wings collection for this layout from my recent New Orleans vacation.  I wanted to show the dark and ominous feel of the French Quarter, so I used the black cs as a background.  The layouts are inspired from the book "Playing with Paper" by Angelia Wigginton.

This page highlights one of my hurricanes from the famous Pat O'Brien's.  The straight lines in the background are colored pencil (as well as the white flourishes & "the" before Big Easy.)  I stamped "Big Easy" with CTMH's Token Alphabet stamp--one of my new favorites--and punched it out.  EASY!  The fleur de lis and ticket stamps are from the You & Me stamp set from this month's CTMH special kit.  The six large flourishes are freehand cut from various Wings B&T papers.

This page shows a couple French Quarter street scenes and a couple more pics from Pat O'Brien's (the flaming fountain and the tray player from the piano bar).  Again, the fleur de lis is from the You & Me stamp set.  I also used the Hope for Japan stamp at the top.  The white writing and flourishes are all white colored pencil.
