A Gallery Without Walls

I'm filling in another gap in my 2015 album today. Back in June we attended a family wedding in Folkestone, and the following morning we had a walk along the seafront. I'd picked up a leaflet about the various artworks that are on display in the town, and my page title comes from the subtitle on that leaflet.

I chose six 3x4 photos for my page, which I knew would cover half the area, but once they were printed it seemed like a lot more. I shuffled and reshuffled them until I had an arrangement that I was happy with. There wasn't much space left for layering and I didn't want to clutter the layout, so I laid the photos directly on the background. The stripy paper is from the same collection and I picked my embellishments to match the stripes, much simpler now that I have sorted most of my embellishments by colour. Indeed, I would probably not have used the chipboard circles otherwise.
