Hello friends! I hope that you are all well. Today I am sharing a layout that I have completed following the sketch below from Once Upon a Sketch.

Well, this layout started off with a bad start. I was playing around with some background textures and it looked terrible!! Nearly made the bin but then my dear friend gesso stepped in and saved the day! I am at the moment looking back  fondly at places I have been too and am starting a mental bucket list of places I want to go to. It is in Southern France and was a fortified city. Inside are shops, hotels and oodles of historical features that take your breath away.

As I had a travel theme, I die cut some tags and also used some transparent tape that had travel marks to compliment my theme. I also have a film strip die and I used it to add some extra layers to my photos.

My second photo arrangement is similar to the first, but without the tags, it allowed me to insert my journalling and title.


Maja Designs Vintage Autumn Basics, Kaisercraft Printed Tape Timeless and mini paper blooms honey, Prima dark bark chalk ink, Prima stitch stamp, Prima flowers Layla, Doily, Scrapmatts Assorted words, My Favourite Things Stencils checkerboard, Martha Stewart Rose leaf punch, Memento tuxedo black, Die-namics pierced traditional tag stax and mini film strip, Lindy's Stamp Gang starburst milk chocolate brown, LSG moon shadow mist bucanner bronze, Tattered Angels crushed shells, Mister Hueys opaque white.

Thanks for stopping by!
