After a brief wander through the archives for National Scrapbooking Day, I'm back to 2015 photos. I'd like to get this year up-to-date but I'm also feeling the pull of other projects-in-progress.
While we were in Devon at Easter, we visited the National Trust property of Arlington Court near Barnstaple. I had sufficient photos that I needed a double page, so turned to this month's double page sketch from Stick It Down.
On this occasion it was more of a starting point than an exact representation. I flipped the sketch from left to right, and played with the sizes and positions of the photos, though the total number remained the same. The biggest change though, was to use hexagons instead of circles on the edges of the page. I made a mosaic of three sizes of hexagon in patterned paper, then layered vellum hexagons with my journalling over them. I completed the page with mistable fabric/chipboard hexagons which I inked to match my background paper.
