Two pages today.....

.....I haven't done any scrapbooking since February, I can't believe it's been that long!
Good morning Bloggers, I hope all is well in your world on this lovely Autumn morning. I have to go into Long Eaton today as my two front tyres are virtually on the cusp of being illegal, so that's a lot of pennies that won't get spent on crafting, what a shame!
They are a bit minimal but I don't like embellishments taking the eyes away from the photographs. I did try a couple but preferred the "white space"  :o)



These were the first two places I visited after becoming a National Trust member a few weeks ago.  
I usually print onto proper photograph card for pages, but decided to try it with my feathered pics printed onto the same Papermania textured card that I have been using for my cards. I do quite like the effect of canvas that it produces.
Both pages are 12x12 and the backing is from my stash so sorry, I don't know where it came from! For the journalling, I used plain parchment on which I printed a paper from J&P Pictures (now defunct). All are cut with Nesties and Woodware punch :o)

Lovely pages Jackie, like they say, "less is more". I like not having lots of embellies as they can sometimes hide the pics. Also really like your last two cards, lovely! Hugs & Aloha, Joanne.

Great pages Jackie, and with photos as good as yours you don't need embellishments anyway.
