The Whomping Willow

No, not the real one, but the concept artwork from the Harry Potter Studio Tour. 

I scrapped the photo using the current sketch from Let's Get Sketchy. I was quite pleased to see the diagonal design of this sketch, as so far I only have one similar page in this album (Hot off the Press) and I do like to repeat things for a sense of continuity. My only dilemma was whether to cut the polka dot paper from corner to corner, or to follow the line of dots in the pattern.

I'm running low on papers from my original kit now, so I've pulled in a few more from my stash. One of them is this polka dot paper from Bazzill. It's a bit more distressed than the October Afternoon papers that I have been using, but I think they will work together. A distinct advantage of doing my pages in random order is that I can still spread this paper throughout the album, it won't be making a sudden appearance part way through.
