In October, we took advantage of a beautiful Saturday and visited a nearby town like tourists. We walked to a pretty waterfall and visited their outdoor museum. "The Trail of Faith" is a recreation of buildings from the lives of the Waldenses starting with a monastery in Italy through their exile to Switzerland, back to northern Italy and finally to the U.S. We were amazed at what they had to go through to preserve their religious beliefs. The trail even included a cave they had to hide in.
The trail also included a variety of old farm equipment. Lenny told me the use of each item I was unfamiliar with and a few I already knew about but hadn't seen in use in many years.
For the layout, I used fall collections from Simple Stories and Lily Bee. I really like the Simple Stories papers that are all over designs. For the title, I used some Mistable Thickers and chalked them in varying shades of yellow to red. "Outing" came from my favorite collection of Basic Grey raw chipboard - Wilna. I've only got a little of this left so I was really happy to get a word out of my remaining letters.
The brochure from the museum is tucked into a velum pocket. Velum is making a comeback. One of my favorite uses is to create pockets for memorabilia. The little Basic Grey clip was part of my haul at the Mighty Dollar at the end of our sightseeing afternoon.
Thanks for visiting!
