Bürgermusik 150

It's been a while since I made a page from a sketch at Stick It Down, but their November sketch caught my eye.

Bürgermusik St Gilgen, the Citizen's Band, were celebrating their 150th anniversary as we arrived in Austria, and I have loads of photos of the various local brass bands marching through the village. 

I had printed ten photos at just less than 3" by 3" intending to use nine of them in three rows of three but this sketch changed my plans. Four photos just fitted the width of the page on a slight diagonal and I changed the spotty panels at the top and bottom to follow the same angle. I wrote my journalling between the rows of spots and added embellishment clusters to opposite corners.

I'm also linking up with Shimelle's latest weekly challenge - go big with red - as red is the dominant colour on the page. I didn't use it in large areas but it repeats across the page and a little red goes a long way. I wonder now if my title should have been red too, but that seemed too much at the time and it's too late to change it now.
