The Burrow

I've followed the Stick It Down blog for a while, and used a few of their older sketches, but this is the first one that I've done "live". 

As it stands, the sketch calls for a patterned paper background, but I'm doing all my Harry Potter Studio Tour pages on cream cardstock, so I had to introduce some colour via extra layers under the photos. 

My photos are interior shots of The Burrow, and they are quite orange in tone, so I chose other colours from the kit of papers that I am using for this album. I started by matting the pictures on yellow cardstock, and pulled out the circle of teal and black paper that I had left over from making my Boys' Dormitory page. I ran that circle off the edge of my page, and placed the stripey paper behind it. I used the same two papers in the opposite corner, next to my title, and ran my journalling (a quote from the Chamber of Secrets) below it.

Cardstock - Colorset, Bazzill, American Crafts
Paper - October Afternoon Witch Hazel, OA 5 & Dime
