Going underground ...

Another month and another layout completed from my pile of Honeymoon photographs.  I am truly beginning to think this was one of my less than brilliant ideas and perhaps leaving them as slides might have been a better solution.  However the problem is once you start .... well you sort of are obliged to finish:)

So since I'm plodding through these I decided to use a visit to Monkton Farleigh in Wiltshire, England as my theme for Julene's inspiration challenge over on Arch--Scraps.

 
Monkton Farleigh was a fascinating tourist stop.  Certainly not somewhere we probably would have ventured by ourselves but due to local knowledge (we were staying with family) it was a great way to pass a few hours. Sadly it is no longer open to the public and has fallen prey to vandalism and decay.
 
I took inspiration from the corrugated tin and the rustic colours seen in the Mad Max 2 Museum and transferred this to my layout using corrugated cardboard, kraft cardstock and a rust glimmer mist sprayed across the base.
 
 
Keep em coming Julene - I'll get this album finished eventually!!
