Archi-scraps for October ...

Archi-scraps have another interesting building to inspire you this month.

The extra criteria is a face somewhere on your layout. It can be in the photo or on the embellishment somewhere. You can use these colours or any other that you like.

I was drawn to the intricate wrought iron work shown in the inspiration picture.  It reminded me of some of the amazing fences and gates I saw on stately homes and castles of the United Kingdom and across various countries of Europe. The ones I settled on using were at Buckingham Palace in London. 

These gates were designed by Sir Thomas Brock for King George V and Queen Mary in 1911 so are now more than a century old.  They display the Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom - the lion representing England and the unicorn, Scotland.

Hopefully you can find some inspiration from our October photograph too.  We'd love to see your take on this so please come on over an join in with us.
