Looking Back at London

In this case, looking way back.  Another of Harry Weber's photos, this one of Buckingham Palace from July 10, 1930. These pictures are so awesome and precious they deserve a layout all by themselves. This was done as another challenge for the Designer Digitals weekend event. It was a simple challenge, to use the provided elements, a cool hanging journal tag, which I used as a frame, the stitched paper label and the leafy green swirl, which adds a nice touch of color to the otherwise neutral palette. Combined with Anna Aspnes Artplay Palettes - English Rose, Special One, Barren Sunrise. Notebook is from Jen Maddocks Parchment.

This is the style I love the most...lots of ephemera, grunge, blending, filling up the spaces with interesting elements to move the eye around the page.  I think I even successfully managed a mini-cluster with the flower, leaf and button.
