Space Mountain

I discovered a new challenge blog last week, and by new I mean 'brand new' rather than 'new to me'. Scrap & Play posted their first ever challenge, a sketch, just a few days ago.

I had a couple of landscape photos from Space Mountain at Disneyland Paris that I wanted to scrap but those in the sketch are portrait; I considered rotating the whole sketch but I preferred my paper strips to run horizontally so I just jiggled things a bit to make them work.

The basis of the layout is those three paper strips, which links this page nicely with this week's challenge at shimelle.com, where Relly Annett-Baker has taken over the reins while Shimelle is on maternity leave. Each week Relly is taking inspiration from one of Shimelle's old pages and this week she has challenged us to use paper strips on a page.

I've already made one page from Disneyland (Meet the Characters) so I kept to the same colour palette and repeated the lettering, mason jar, rub-ons and gems from my first page. I'd layered the papers on that page, so I overlapped them here rather than having separate panels as in the sketch.
