Wat Po

After returning from our trip to Thailand, I bought lots of gold-colored scrapbooking supplies since we saw many gold Buddhas and other Gold things there. I have since learned that there are man y shades of gold, most of which never seem to match my photos. Adding to that the huge number of photos we took and I am finding this trip very difficult to scrap. These pages are my attempt to capture Wat Po, one of the highlights in Bangkok.  It is the locations of the giant reclining Gold Buddha and many other Gold Buddhas. The Reclining Buddha was very difficult to photograph since it is so huge and the building around it is not really much bigger than it. As a result, I took photos at all different angles and hopefully we can piece the pictures together in our mind.

This first page was done for the Drill #30 challenge at S.W.A.T. (F- flower, L - Liquid Pearls, O - oversize photos, W- Washi tape, E - Echo Park pp, R - red flower centers).  

The final page shows some of the other smaller gold Buddhas around the complex. I used the April 1 challenge from Paper Secrets (J - Jenni Bowlin rub-on and sequin, O - Ombre Collection (paper used for journaling), K - Karen Foster spiral brads, E - Echo Park pp, S - Stickles). 

Thanks for looking!
