J.F.K. Memorial

Last summer I spent a day in and around Runnymede, the water meadow where Magna Carta was signed in 1215; you can see a plethora of photos from the day here. I'd always thought that they would make a double page, but when I sorted through my pictures for printing recently I realised that the photos really fell into three groups and that I would need a double page plus two singles.

I've started with one of the single pages, for the memorial to President John F Kennedy that is on the hillside above the meadow. It was designed to be part of the landscape and consists of a flight of 50 steps (one per state), the memorial stone itself and some seats for peaceful contemplation.

I used a sketch that Laura Whitaker designed for Imaginisce, rotated for my landscape photos. I moved the title across to the top corner and ran my journalling down the column below it.

  1. This looks great Amanda. Love the design turned like this and the stripes in the paper echoing the straight lines in the photo's. xx

  2. This is such a great take on the sketch, I love the way you adapted it to add so much fabulous journaling. Great colours and accents too! Thank you for sharing your link with me.
