Memories of the Louvre

I took these photos of the sumptuous interiors of the Louvre museum in Paris that Napoleon used for his state apartments while in the capital.

 As he felt that 'more was more' with interior decorating (or I assume he did looking at these rooms!), there was only one paper range that I thought would be appropriate.  The Anna Griffin 'Grace' range along with a 6x4 Amelie journalling card really set off the pictures.  I also used a little yellow from a Papermania floral range to back the photos and as a punched border to the roses paper.
Although the papers are very busy, the amount of detail on the photos still stand out.

To make the title I used two die cuts layered, and added a little brush script under the flag to match the rest of the font used on the layout.

I finished off with layered roses, some gold die-cuts and gold glitter Nuvo crystal drops.
