Quick Grid Page

Jimjams - Layout detail - title & butterfly die-cuts Challenge #3 over at the CKCB this month was to use a grid.
I love grids.  I think I'm naturally a straight lines scrapper and have to occasionally force myself to angle things on the page.  Even then ... I sometimes use grids!

This page is the sixth, final and fastest one I made at my recent scrapping retreat.  Originally I'd been thinking of using these small photos on a double page spread about Skansen in Stockholm, but, in truth, I have enough shots for a triple or quadruple page ... so I decided to put the photos of buildings onto one dedicated page.

Jimjams - Layout - Living With The Land

A few strips of patterned paper from my October Counterfeit Kit and a little butterfly punching (!) later and it was ready. I may add a date and place but will probably just leave that to the journalling on one of the other pages from the day.

P.S. Since there's no journalling on the page - you may be interested to know that the buildings on stilts are from Swedish regions where they get a LOT of snow!

I like grids too - I like the strips of paper. Those really are gorgeous colours in this month's kit.

I remember the story of the house on chicken legs/stilts that walked :)

I am fascinated by these houses :). And your grid scheme is perfect for the architectural theme - I do like those pretty bands of paper too.

I like this a lot. I recently finished a grid page too. It's a sketch I think I will be using more often.
