I have another page from our Welsh holiday today, but we'd snuck over the border for the day and this maze is actually in England. I used this month's sketch from Sue/Miniowner for my page, though I adapted it for four photos.
The page is from the same day as the Butterfly Zoo page that I made at the beginning of the month. I felt that a lot of journalling would have spoiled that page so I decided then that the story for both pages would be on this one. I was thinking of running it down the column on the left of the sketch, but I moved it onto the background cardstock once I'd chosen to use the tree paper.
I'd already started working on this page when Shimelle posted her challenge on Monday - to make journalling the heart of your page - but it did give me confidence that filling the background with writing wasn't a crazy idea. The inspiration piece was a full sheet of writing with the layout on acetate over it, but I've just written in the space around my photo block.
