I'm continuing scrapping our Easter holiday in Devon, with a trip to Lydford Gorge. It's somewhere we've visited many times, but we still go again whenever we are in the area. It's another National Trust property, with a car park at each end of the 1.5 mile long gorge. Our last visit was in 2008, and it feels like a very long time ago.
I based my page on this month's double page sketch at Stick It Down. I am on the single page design team there, and I never intended to do all the double pages too, but so far I've done so every month.
I started by flipping the sketch, so that my portrait photos of the rapids and waterfalls are on the left side. I also replaced one of the landscape photos with two smaller portrait photos, and then squeezed in two more in place of the smaller square photo in the sketch. I also like it when papers span the gaps between the two halves of a double page, so I moved some of the background papers closer together. I have lots of the Dotted Swiss cardstock, and I've decided to do all my holiday photos on it to make a definite sub-section of my 2015 album.
Believe it or not, I based my colour scheme around the butterfly washi tape as I really wanted to use this. It's from Teresa Collins' Daily Stories collection and although I bought several of the papers I've used most of them now, so I dug around for matching colours, finding papers from American Crafts/Shimelle, Pebbles and We R Memory Keepers that were close matches.
I've really loved these glittery foam Thickers; the narrow font doesn't take up much space, and I've had loads of titles from them without running out of vowels. I am running out of other letters now though, and have resorted to cannibalism to get the ones I need - the Gs are really Cs with additions, and the Rs started out as Ps.
