Eclectic Elements - All things Parisienne



The Paris Issue of Unruly PaperArts Blogozine this month has been focusing on all things Parisienne and inspired me to use an old perfume bottle to alter. 




My dear hubbie took me to Paris last March for my birthday and my memories of this beautiful city influenced what I used to embellish it.




I would love it if you joined me at UPA to see what I used to achieve this vintage look from a modern 'Eternity' perfume bottle.
