Hi! Happy Monday! Today, I am sharing another layout from our visit to a champagne tour at Veuve Clicquot cellars. Here is Luis in front of the wine or champagne barrels. Each barrel has a name and date, ie, Vertus 1823, Bouzy 1824, etc. The name indicates the location's name from the grape's vineyard. These barrels are not empty, and from the date listed, I would not dare to drink what it is inside. The vineyard of Bouzy is recognized for the quality of her soil. Bouzy became really famous during the court of Louis XIV at Versailles! Interesting fact!
About this layout, after I complete it and post it at The Scrap-Room Blog Weekly Challenge #37, and The Color Room Palette #24, I was not completely satisfied. It seemed too dark for me. I removed the background and put it at another background paper more similar to ivory.
But, I really do not prefer the second layout, since the first one, reminds me more about the cellars, which are very dark. Really, the tour is very dark, and you walk using flashlights only, since cellars are underground.
So, I post both of them here, and now, you know more about my process. I enjoy playing and changing elements here and there, until I am satisfied. Other times, I just move on to the next project. This is what it is!!
The sketch is from Julie Bonner. The supplies are from Pink Paislee Queen Bee collection and Basic Grey Origins collection.
Please, remember, there is still time to play at The Paper Variety, Challenge No. 2. The due date is tomorrow Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at 12 Noon (ET). For the chance to win an August kit from The Treasure Box Club. These "Classical Beauty kit is valued at $33.95. Nice!!!!!!
See you, tomorrow!
