I was beginning to think I wouldn't finish a second layout today, but I did. This one is for another sketch from last week, from Sketchy Thursdays.

The strips of paper all come from the same collection and were mostly double-sided off-cuts from previous layouts. The background piece was a white scrapbook insert which I coloured with chalks. I've done this a few times recently - it gives a soft cloudy colour which I can match to the papers I'm using. I love Basic Grey's Archaic papers and a tiny piece has made its way onto this layout - a railway track between the photos.

I've deviated from the sketch a bit as I wanted to use two larger photos and  I found that they looked better with the strips filling the page rather than being confined to the left. There was no obvious space for journalling, so I used the title box and moved the title up the page instead.

Paper - s.e.i Dill Blossom, Basic Grey Archaic
Letters - Making Memories
Chalk - Studio G
