Peaceful- Bird is the Word DT


Here I am again with a reveal for Bird is the Word.
The word to use today is PEACE. There are so many options with this word. I had so many ideas but I finally went with peaceful because it matched the picture perfectly.
I love this picture so much. I always wanted to take a picture on a railroad track and when I found an unused one this summer I told my kids to start walking on it and then I took a picture of it with my favourite: The Hipstamatic App.

I used these Maja Design papers that came in my August Ces't Magnifique Kit. They are absolutely divine. The soft colors are amazing and I have to say the quality and thickness of the paper is impressive.
I used the CM August Sketch for this layout and it came out soft and dreamy!! one of my faves!

 Here are some close-ups. I textured the chipboard with gesso, Texture paint and white stickles.

I love the brick paper that comes in the kit. I cut it out at the edges to make it look like a wall for the background.

I made my own looking Hydrangeas to mimic the background page. Hydrangeas are one of my favourite flowers especially the white ones so I loved this page even more.

  I used these resin shutters that I bought at Michaels from the Recollection collection. It makes it seem as if we are viewing the whole scene from a window.

Materials used:
Papers: Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics, white card stock, packaging.
Chipboard: Leaky Shed, Harmonie
Alphas: Storyteller Stickers by WP
Flowers: Green Tara, Petaloo
Small Flower Punch
EK Success border punch, Martha Stewart Corner Punch
Recollection resin embellishments
Shabby Chic Treasures by Prima: Bird
Silver Pen
Queen & Co: pearls
White Stickles
Martha Stewart White Textured paint
Glue Dots

 Thanks for visiting my blog,
Have a fantastic day!!
