Queen & Adam Lambert

A year ago, we saw Queen and Adam Lambert live at the O2, one of the best evenings of my life. I took a LOT of photos and although they vary widely in quality there were certainly enough good ones for a double page. I'm not keen on making double pages though, so I've been looking/waiting for a suitable sketch.

This month's double page sketch from Stick It Down (originally published at Page Maps) was almost perfect, with a good combination of landscape and portrait photos in different sizes, though I did move the title and squeeze in a few more photos.

It's hard to see the pattern on the grey paper, but it's a musical note print that I spotted in my nearest scrapbook store (which was closing down) last June and earmarked for this page. I downloaded the word 'Queen' in the correct font and cut it on my Portrait, adding in '& Adam Lambert' in a script font. I also designed and cut the border of stars from white cardstock and then painted them all with mist. It's a plainer page than many that I make, but I really wanted the photographs to be the most important things on the page.

Speaking of photos, I had a few more that I also wanted to include, so I made a 6x12 divided page that will sit between the two halves of the double page. I repeated the title in the first pocket, because it's on the right-hand side of my double page, and will not actually be seen when you are looking at the left-hand side and the front of the insert in the album. These are the six cards that I made; they will sit back-to-back in the two sides of the divided page.
