I had a clear plan for the pages I wanted to make from our canal holiday in July, and it always included a double to sum up our day-to-day life on the water. I even decided on its title ages ago, back when we were still on the boat, we passed a narrow boat that is used for retreats and meditation, and painted on the side were the words "narrow boats, wide eyes, open minds..." I liked the sentiment and snapped a quick photo so that I wouldn't forget it; I particularly liked the contrast of narrow and wide, and pondered on that until I came up with my own version.
I do like to use a sketch for double pages, and I found this one on Google images, though it was too small to read the source. A reverse image search came up trumps, taking me to a larger version and the blog of Cheryl Even who originally published it back in 2012. I had a play around with the number and sizes of the photos, but the basic design is all hers.
It's a photo-heavy spread - I have fifteen pictures on the page - so I didn't leave myself a lot of room for journalling. I've captioned the larger photos and added a list of our route at the bottom, leaving the photos to tell most of the story.
