Wild Camp

A new month means a new round of challenges and the first one to catch my eye was the Sketch #42 at Sketch-n-Scrap.

I picked photos from a camping trip and intended to use the Take a Hike collection from Simple Stories for my page. However I found that the colours were too strong and that the papers were fighting with my photos for attention. I ended up using Basic Grey Wisteria with its softer colours, though a few bits of Take a Hike did find their way onto the page too.

Paper - Basic Grey Wisteria
