A Week in the Lakes

It's been a while since I did a sketch from Creative Craft World. This is the June sketch which I thought would work well for multiple photos placed in a grid. I decided to combine it with Challenge D from the ABC Crop at My Sketch World where D is for Distressing. 

My photos are from 2007 (trying to concentrate on one year at a time!!) when my husband did his first serious walking in the Lake District. I picked my favourite picture from each day that week and manipulated them to add a description to each one.

I raided my Basic Grey Archaic 6x6 pad for nine different patterned papers, cut them to size and tried distressing the edges with a variety of tools including a sanding block and a nail file; I found that the edge of my scissors worked best.

Paper - Basic Grey Max & Whiskers (Elvis), Basic Grey Archaic ( 6x6 Pad)
Letters - Anita's Glitterations
Ink - Dovecraft
