Gamle Stavanger

Get Picky is celebrating its first birthday with a blog hop and this sketch:

I returned to my 2009 Norwegian Cruise album to make this layout about the old part of the city of Stavanger, with its pretty clapboard houses and cobbled streets.

Most of the papers come from the same paper pad; it has some pages of borders and tags which makes co-ordination really easy. I decided to chalk the flowery paper to change the background from white to peach as the white was too big a contrast with the other papers. My journalling is on a small tag which tucks behind the photo of my daughter. There's no real need for it to be hidden; I just ran out of space.

Paper - First Edition Spring Feast paper pack, DCWV Far East stack
Letters - Pebbles Inc
Buttons - Meiflower
Ribbon & Flowery Paper - from Stash
Chalk - Studio G
