April In Paris

This is my entry for the Sunday Postcard Art challenge (April In Paris). Never been to Paris. I dream about it; the architecture, the art, the city and all of its delights. I have met some wonderful bloggers from France and their art displays a love of beauty in color and form. This digital postcard collage is made from vintage wallpaper, digital text, archive photos of Arc de Triomphe and e-vint.com. Artistic filters added in photoshop.
