2015: Exchange Student – New York – Top of the Rock
While in New York Henry visited “Top of the Rock” which is an observation deck on top of the Rockerfeller Center.
I had some leftover New York background paper from our short trip to New York (See page here), which fit perfectly for this spread. If you look closely at the right hand bottom picture you can see the Chrysler building which is the same building that is on the background paper to the right of the left hand page.
I then used brick paper to create the border for the pictures, postcard (top left), and to create a pocket to hold maps and other ephemera from this day trip. The pocket allows the viewer to retrieve, open, and look at the items that are inside of the pocket.
I mounted the ticket on another New York Paper (if you look closely under the ticket you can see the word “Queens”), and double mounted the photo pass (bottom right hand corner) on both papers.
