Journey into the Earth
Double Take I adjusted the sketch a bit to accommodate my photos. I had already had them printed at 3x4, 2x3, and of course 4x6 before I ever saw the sketch. I had taken a ton of photos that day at IEC. I knew that I would never be able to scrap them all as 4x6 so I created collage 4x6 prints that I cut apart for use. I chose to use BasicGrey's Archaic line. I've had it in my stash for quite some time. The papers suited the photos and mood of the caverns. I did use a kraft cardstock photo mat and left some breathing space between photos. The background paper was very busy and some of my photos are very similar to one another. I just felt like adding the matting and space kept the photos from being overwhelmed. I used some coffee shop glimmermist on the mat and title letters. I added some distress ink and Tim Holtz metal embellishments along with a flattened bottle cap to complete the layout.
