I've said before that I don't scrap chronologically, but I do store my pages in chronological albums. Once an album is taking shape I keep a list of 'missing' pages and the number of photos that each page needs, ready for when inspiration strikes.
One of these missing pages was a five-photo visit to an animal sanctuary, and my inspiration cam along in the shape of a sketch from Stuck?! Sketches last week. My photos were a mixture of portrait and landscape, so I jiggled them about in comparison with the sketch, but the basic plan is the same.
Taking the colour scheme for the page directly from the photos would have given me a mess of greens and browns, so I started by placing my photos on a few different backgrounds, and this stripe seemed to be the best option. The floral paper has the same yellow (same manufacturer, different collection) and the denim is the reverse side of the floral. I'm not a fan of banners, so I based my embellishment on wood veneer circles backed with coordinating patterned paper.
