Bird is the Word (BITW) challenges. The challenge is to use the word 'Beyond'. I've incorporated it as part of my title.
This photo was taken on our first wedding anniversary. We were married in the Fall which is both our favorite season & also makes for some colorful scrapbook pages! Since this was our first year married I titled it 'The Beginning & Beyond' which is how I felt at the moment. It was barely the beginning of our lives together and we were both anticipating what was beyond this first year together.
Enamelz embossing powder by Shimmerz.
here. This has quickly become my favorite way of storing lengthy journaling. Instead of hiding my journaling behind my page like I used to--my journaling is now a unique embellishment to my page!
Dusty Attic. Just like the background I used a variety of mixed media to give it texture. It was first painted with dark brown acrylic paint then randomly heat embossed with a bit of mahogany distress embossing powder. With my finger I spread a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Stickles randomly on the branches and finally with my finger again I added a bit of Martha Stewart brown leaf glitter here n' there on several of the branches.

The transparent butterfly resting on the Prima nest is a butterfly from my small Etsy shop--you can find this butterfly & many more in my shop here. I tucked a bit of tulle underneath my large brown fabric flower & the bright yellow bird is also from my stash.
Thanks to all of you who stop by for a visit! Have a great rest of the week!
