A Disneyland Paris Moment

Good morning, it's time for my weekly dose of inspiration for Visible Image and for today and next week's posts I am sharing 2 Moments I made for Jane's Journal using their awesome stamps. They are Moments of our recent wonderful holiday in Disneyland Paris.
Such sweet memories of 5 days with our own Princess who loved the castle so much!

We were so lucky with the weather, despite being mid November we had a couple of days with bright blue skies and sunshine and at one point we were able to take our coats off. 
I knew which of my photos I wanted to remember those days by and chose the one 1 took of the castle when were were sitting on the train which runs round the park. We took this the first afternoon we arrived. We had our cases taken to the hotel so we just walked straight into the magic of Disney.
This was taken just before dusk when the moon had risen in the sky. The sky gave off a pink tinge and there was a gorgeous golden glow in the air. It really felt magical.
I wanted to try to include all these memories in my Moment. So this is what I got up to.

To create the sky I first white embossed the moon and clouds from the Believe in Unicorns set 

 I gold embossed the cogs from the Somewhere in time set around the edges of my page.

. I then carefully and slowly built up the colours for the background using blues with a little pink distress ink. I wanted to try to mimic the sky that evening. 

at the bottom of my page I added some golden hues.

 The trees were bare and we could here a bird singing as we sat at the station in Fantasy land so I used my Tim Holtz die to cut a bird and branches to capture that memory.

 I gave them lots of texture and colour with DecoArt texture sand and acryllic paints. 

The pathway was made using the geometric maze stencil and gold embossing paste.

I used the sentiment from where dreams take you, it was perfect for my Moment.

 I also stamped stars from the rock out set to the backing card for my photo.

It was then time to put my Moment together...
Here are some close ups.
and one final shot.

It really was such a magical time, made even more special by sharing it with our 4 year old granddaughter. I hope that one day when Daisy looks through Jane's Journal she too will be able to remember that special time. Next Monday I will share the Cinderella Moment I made, again brought to life by the versatile Visible Image stamps.
