I have been meaning to do a page about Lombard Street ever since we got back from San francisco last year. When I saw this mood board over at 'Scrap Around the World' I thought of these photos and decided to have a go a tackling them. I was inspired by the colours on the board as well as the travel theme.
Here is the sketch that goes along with the mood board:
I was inspired by the sketch but didn't adhere too closely to it. I replaced the single photo with three. I draped ink-sprayed muslin under the photo block instead of the strips on the sketch (I wante to mimic a cloud-like effect to match my background paper. The paper that I used is Studio Calico's 'The Pier' collection. Once I started to cut out and play with the hexagon elements I couldn't seem to stop and ended up layering them accross my page. I shortened the banner element so that it wouldn't be 'too heavy' on my page and added lots of journaling as I had a lot to say about these photos :)
Here are a couple of close-ups:
