Misty Provence: The Scenic Papers

I don’t know if these lovely scenes are actually in Provence! But they fit quite well with the kit, I think. They started life as illustrated plates from a journal called Ackermann’s Repository, published in Regency England from 1809 to 1829. I found the scans HERE, in EK Duncan’s gallery. I see that she has added some more since I visited. I’ll be adding these to my collection! This is what the originals looked like…

I increased the size to 12×12″, reduced the opacity over a background texture in a colour from the Misty Provence palette, added lace at the top and damask to the water. Thanks, Eveyd, for a great find!

    Thank you, Carol – the papers are absolutely gorgeous! The Scripture on the card is one of my favorites. It has been set to music and i sing it when i have my devotions. i have seen photos and films about Provence, and i think it must be one of the loveliest areas of Europe. Thank you for these additional papers, the card and the mat!

      I haven’t been there myself either, jayleigh, but I have a friend who’s married to a Frenchman who has. A beautiful part of the world.

    Hey! i LOST my “Misty Provence” zips during a mini-‘puter crash, so i had to come back to download them again! i didn’t get those zips moved to my EHD because i wasn’t sure you had finished this beautiful kit. This old ‘puter is so creaky it needs to go to a rest-home for computers! heh heh heh – Thank you for leaving the links up! i keep all your kit zips on my EHD so i can reload them if this ol’ ‘puter dies. Your kits are ALWAYS gorgeous!

      Ah no! I’m glad you got replacements. How clever of you to back up your files. Hardware doesn’t last forever, does it? If you ever need to replace a kit, the link for which is deleted, just email me or leave me a comment and I’ll send it to you. I get to all my comments, eventually! And I appreciate every single one.
