Tor Bagging

I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again, but I really don't enjoy making double pages. Occasionally I'll see a great sketch and really like the page that I make from it, but more often I have the photos first and can't find a sketch to suit them. I tend to put off making double pages and hope that a good sketch comes along, but it rarely happens.

I've kept fairly up-to-date with my 2015 scrapping, but there is a growing list of double pages that I need to make. I decided to tackle one of those last weekend, a set of photos from Dartmoor taken during our Easter holiday. 

I chose and printed my photos and then looked for a sketch, despite knowing that this is the wrong way to do it. I eventually settled on one from the archive at Stick It Down. My photos don't fit it, but I thought I could copy the paper layers behind them.

There is one thing that I wish I'd done differently on this page, and that's to have placed the title higher and journalled underneath it. The TOR letters are die-cut and glued down, and although I tried to unstick them they weren't going to budge.

  1. Wow what great photo's Amanda and you've set them out in a super design. I made the same title bo-bo as you once and I just incorporated the journaling into the title. For example 'The day was not too hot and we had a great time in Dartmoor.... Tor Bagging'.
    You have probably sorted you journaling out by now anyway!
