Derry at Night Layout

Sometimes there is a city that you just have to photograph during the day and at night. We arrived in Londonderry durning the day, but I knew I'd just have to go out again after it got dark to capture some of the views of this beautiful city. Today I'm sharing my Derry at Night layout.

Thanks to the location of our hotel, the City Hotel, all we had to do was walk out the front door to be able to capture places like the Peace Bridge  and the Guild Hall at night. We could actually see these views right from our hotel window, but I wanted to get a little more up close and personal.

I used a bit of a strange mix of papers for this layout. I started with the night sky/stars paper. I actually had it for scrapping camping photos as it's from Bella Blvd's Camp Out collection, but I knew it could be really fun for this layout.

I love how navy and kraft look together, so I pulled a piece of kraft and gold paper from American Crafts. For the border I thought I might be able to get away with a black chevron from Pebbles Inc. It helps pull in the black from the star paper without being too dark.

I needed to bring all of these papers together with some cohesive embellishments. Simple Stories Gold Snap Pack has kraft, black, gold, and white all in the mix of journaling cards and embellishments, so I used those. Little clusters of these kraft, gold, black, and white embellishments really help pull everything together.

We really loved our quick stay in Derry. Photographing Derry at night was just the thing to end a fabulous day there. Is there a city you love even more at night than during the day time?
