Pit Lane Antics

The recent challenges that I've done have all been single photo layouts, which normally takes me back to pre-digital photography. Much as I've enjoyed scrapping some older pictures, I feel that I must get back on task. One aim for 2012 (I'm not making resolutions) is to complete the album for our trip to Singapore and Malaysia in 2009.

The latest challenge from Scrap Whispers was a scraplift with three photos so I seized the opportunity to scrap some pictures taken on the Pit Straight of the Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore. This was Rosey's original layout:

And this is my version:

I kept the bracket shape, but used stripes rather than spots for the background paper. This was because I decided to use the back of the preceding layout in the album, and this sheet gave me a colour scheme when there isn't a lot of colour in the photos. I cut the blue bracket paper from a template and (after trying dozens of different colours) used textured grey card in the middle. My three pictures were slightly different shapes and sizes, and I matted all of them to provide some colour and separate the grey tarmac from the grey background, but I kept their general positions. I used a border punch similar to Rosey's on one edge of each photo mat and on a mat for the journalling. I dropped a lot of the embellishments as I didn't have much that would suit my peculiar colour scheme, just adding yellow dew drops to two corners.

  1. Great take on the challenge - these colours are pretty together

  2. Oh I like this. Blue and yellow are difficult colours to match - you've done a great job.
    Thanks for playing along at Scrap Whispers!
