Gullfoss - The Golden Falls

Last week's challenge on UKS was to use red & black as the colour theme, feature stamping on the layout and to also feature movement.  I chose these two photographs from our Icelandic cruise last year for the theme of movement.  Sadly the weather was horrendous for our visit - I braved an absolute downpour to walk to the first vantage point to get these photographs.  I let DH do the viewpoint that looked down onto the falls on his own and I stayed in the coach but it was raining even harder by then so he only managed to get a quick bit of video.  Still we want to revisit Iceland one day and have more time there so will hopefully see the falls again and see all the rainbows that form in the mists on a sunny day.

I used a Pagemaps sketch from January 2010 for inspiration.

The papers are Craft Creations and Stampin' Up and I used dotted swiss Bazill for my background cardstock.  The title was cut using a Sizzlet 12" alpha die - Naturally Serif.  The butterflies are a Hero Arts stamp - I have a set of three small butterfly stamps and they are my favourite butterfly stamps, I never bother putting them away at the moment!!

A close up of the journalling -

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
