Archi-scraps for June ...

Archi-scraps is hosting an interesting inspiration challenge this month.

These are nylon air houses from Life  Magazine.
Think jellyfish, Parachutes, seashells, hot air balloons. Whatever inspires you. If you want to use these colours that is fine too but not essential.
The added criteria is Silhouettes.
Layouts or cards not containing the set criteria will not be considered for judging.

This is the dome in St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican City, Rome. 
I have used black cardstock as the base and kept the two photos to the middle of the page with strips of a mixture of paper behind them to try to give the feeling of height which is such a feature of the real dome.  I’ve added gold rubons which are carefully positioned to carry your eye up the page to focus on the dome - the minimal embellishments all have touches of gold to highlight the richness of the Basilica.  I finished the layout off with a quote by John Muir - “The power of imagination makes us infinite”, which I felt was fitting for this amazing structure.
