Saturday Scribbles

A double scrapbook page to share today featuring photos of the very beautiful Belton House grounds. We went there last Tuesday, purely on a whim because the sun was shining and it seemed a waste to stay indoors.  So my planned sewing day was put on hold and I'm so pleased we did this.  I came back energised and enthusiastic and with that contented feeling you get after a great day - could be something to do with the sugar hit at the restaurant!

I used the sketch from The Memory Nest's first March challenge as the basis for my pages.  This was a really good one for me as I had so many photos I wanted to include and the double page multi-box layout was perfect.  I kept all embellishments to a minimum - just a couple of arrows and ink splatters - as I didn't want to compete with the photographs as they showed Belton in all its glory.

I kept the horizontal line  from the sketch using a Hambly screen print and the right hand circle, but then rotated the rest of the sketch to help with the placement of my photos.


Paper: AC kraft cardstock; Hambly Screen Prints, little circles
Stamp: Uniko Studio, All Occasion Sentiments #2
Inks: Memento, rich cocoa; Mister Huey's Color Mists, dark calico, sunshine, opaque white
Alphas: ep reflections; AC thickers, Prairie

And here's that sugar hit:

To finish off the perfect outing we drove home through the back roads and spotted the first lambs of Spring.
