The Churches of St John's

St John's in Newfoundland was the first Canadian port of our cruise this summer. We planned a walking tour of the city, taking in the major sites including a number of churches. I decided to pull them all together on one page, and to use a grid to give each one its own separate space.

I used three similarly coloured patterned papers from Heidi Swapp for my squares, and pondered over another colour/pattern to layer with them. I liked the aqua map print, but I didn't have very much and it wouldn't provide a contrast. This lead me to a different map print from October Afternoon; it's a map of Paris, but you don't see enough of it to be able to work that out. 

My original plan was to have separate title, journalling and embellishment blocks in the middle row, but this evolved as I worked and I combined them across the three squares, pulling in the aqua map print here. There isn't actually much in the way of embellishment as the page was feeling quite busy to me.

  1. I think this grid design is perfect for your set of church photo's, each one getting it's own space. There is a very eclectic mix in the town and some are great looking buildings.
