We’ve been to the Belbroughton Scarecrow Festival a few times now and each time we have watched the Appalachian Dancers perform outside the church hall. They are accompanied by a cd player and children’s percussion provided from the audience and always project such joy and enthusiasm in their performance.
The Counterfeit Kit Challenge to use a quilt as inspiration was perfect to scrap this year’s photos. Sadly audience numbers seem to be dwindling – I could not have taken these shots the first year we saw them, standing at the back of the crowd as I did then. This year there were spare seats and I took these from the front row.
I used the patchwork squares and a sheet of green pp from September’s kit, with October’s kit and sketch. I twisted the sketch 90 degrees and replaced the line of small photos with the patchwork squares. The title is the name of one of the dances; they save a slice of pumpkin pie for the end.
There’s something not quite right about this page. I’m hoping that journalling in the left hand yellow strip (once I’ve decided what to write) will balance the page a little. Or maybe I need another spot of red in the bottom left. What do you think?
