Lake Burley Griffin

Lake Burley Griffin - A Digital Scrapbook Layout of my younger son as we strolled around the Lake in Canberra.

This layout was a real treat to scrap. I used a hand drawn sketch to get started and the resulting layout, aka this page, then in turn evolved into sketchPLATE 0006.

These photos had been kind of taunting me for a while because of the colours; a full range of greens and blues in the sky, water and greeneries across the various backgrounds. The black swans were the key to a certain extent, so I opted to desaturate the photos.

Given that we were in Canberra, our nation’s capital, I decided to incorporate a slightly tribal theme into the embellishments and papers used whilst retaining a neutral background with the three visual columns of kraft paper pieces. Also, my family’s Mediterranean background shows through with some of the paper choices.

I love how this turned out. 8D

Journaling reads:
20-April-2018 April on the road saw us in Canberra for a couple of weeks where we visited many of Australia’s most famous national exhibits, including both the Old and the New Parliament Houses, various galleries and other great institutions. We also stopped to have our lunch one day on the shores of the man made lake called Lake Burley Griffin. Of course, we had one of my special fully loaded pizza sandwiches. We also met a pair of beautiful black swans, as we walked around the lake after lunch. It was a perfect day.

I really like the slightly discordant balance of the two sides of the page; I kind of feel as though there is a strength emanating from the two diamond tag poles. The four photos definitely pull the five rows of paper/colour blocks together thus forming the basis for the sketchPLATE.
