A World to Discover- Bird is the Word Design Team

I actually had two reveals due today so I waited until after Midnight to reveal the second one because I like to give each of my layouts a fair chance!! So please look below at my reveal for Creative Scrappers.
NOW....


Here is my Bird is the Word Design Team reveal. The word to use is DISCOVER. I combined my DT layout with a challenge at Once Upon A Sketch blog, and used Nadia's sketch for the design. The journaling criteria was to write about a memorable trip you've been on or a trip you would love to be on. I actually turned and flipped the sketch to make it fit my picture. I used these beautiful Sweet Nothings papers from Kaisercraft and combine them with Prima flowers. I ripped the edges of the paper and added a Webster's Pages blue doily in the ripped areas. Then I sew around the edges to give the layout a frame. I also used some Dusty Attic borders and some lace to add under the picture. I  distressed the picture to make it look antique because the background reminded me of Roman times.
The journaling talks about how on our most recent trip on the Disney Cruise they took a picture of my husband and I in front of this arched background. The arches reminded me of Italian architecture the way you see it in the photos. So it made me think that I hope to visit Italy one day with my husband and stand in front of the real arches.


















Thank you so much for visiting my blog!!
Have a great day!!

You've done the 'antique-y' look really well... I hope you do get to Italy & if so, you MUST go to Genova / Genoa...their main street nearest the waterfront is all arches. Old arches. Really, really full of atmosphere:):) Think you've given me some inspiration here for BITW...thankyou:):)
