Raglan Castle

Gosh, I'm a slow scrapper - I started this page last weekend and I finished it last night. It's a double from Raglan Castle, which we visited at Easter. I found a sketch on Google that I think originally came from Page Maps, but I flipped the left side vertically so that my title and main photo would be at the top of the page.

I quickly picked the neutral brown and cream papers as being perfect for the castle's colours and pulled in the stripe for a bit of colour. When it came to embellishing, I didn't have much in that jade green, and using more brown would have made for a very dull page. Fortunately Shimelle posted a new prompt in The 20 Project about using a colour wheel to pick new colour combinations. Jade is opposite pink on the wheel, so I pulled in pink as an accent colour and I'm very happy with the look that gives to the page.
