Potages / Scribbulus

I took photos of every shop in Diagon Alley at the Harry Potter Studio Tour, plus close-ups of some of the window displays. There are too many to give each shop its own album page, so I'm planning to scrap some of them in pairs. I did one page last week, but I'm not happy with it and it hasn't made it on to the blog yet. I think I used too many papers and didn't leave enough white space resulting in a very 'heavy' page. I've put it away for a few days and I'll see how I feel when I get it out again.

Meanwhile, Susan (Miniowner at UKScrappers) has posted her sketch challenge for November, and it's inspired me to try another shop page with a simpler design. 

I used different coloured mats for the photos and papers in the top and bottom parts of the page, with two title areas for the two shops. I machine stitched around the edge of the page and ran the words 'Diagon Alley' along one edge.
