Gringotts Bank

I'm tackling another building from Diagon Alley today, one that nearly didn't get included in the album. Only the steps and the outer door of Gringotts Bank are on display at the Harry Potter Studio Tour, and my photograph wasn't as interesting as the ones of the shops, so I was  going to skip scrapping it. However, I also had pictures of one of the vault doors and some wizard coins from other parts of the tour, and putting the three together for a page made sense.

I started out from the November Week 1 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy, altering the square photos to rectangles, but then I re-printed the middle photo a little larger, making Gringotts the main feature, with two supporting photos.

I moved the title onto a tag below the photos and used the orange tile stickers again. (I've decided to do all my Diagon Alley page titles the same way.) My journalling is another quote, from The Philosopher's Stone, where Harry visits Gringotts for the first time.
