St. Nicholas, Feltwell

Hey kids, it's the last Scrappy Monday of 2015.  And I'm ready to be done with all the Christmas color block layouts, so instead, I bring you this:

St. Nicholas is the church that was about a half a block up the street from our house in England.  Super tiny, first built in the 7th century (yes, 7th, not 17th), with a collapsed bell tower on one side and a graveyard surrounding it.  Hubs thinks I'm weird for wandering around graveyards, but I don't know, I think they're peaceful.  And I love looking at all the old names.

There's my usual mixed-font title, using the Spencerian Alphabet for the name of the church and the Rough Edges alphabet for the village name.

I had quite a time trying to figure out photo placement for this layout, so this was another option I considered before I changed my mind.

My color palette:  Perfect Plum, Cajun Craze,  Garden Green, Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla.  I must thank my Color Coach for this palette; I knew I wanted to use Cajun Craze but I was having trouble figuring out what to pair it with.  The Color Coach gave me Perfect Plum and Always Artichoke, but I swapped out the Artichoke for Garden Green because it went with the pictures better.  That Perfect Plum turned out to be just what I was looking for to do the page base.  Wish they hadn't retired the Color Coach.

Cheers, peeps!  Tomorrow is Nacho Day, and then it's time for the annual showcase.

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Spencerian Alphabet Upper & Lower, Rough Edges Alphabet, Angelic
Ink:  Early Espresso, Garden Green
Paper:  Perfect Plum, Garden Green, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Cajun Craze DSP
