Fall also holds a very special place in both the hearts of my husband & I. We were married in the Fall 5 years ago in October. So here we are, celebrating our 5th year wedding anniversary. We decided to go back to where we celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary--a quaint & quiet bed & breakfast in Pocono Pines, PA. The foliage during this time of year in Pennsylvania is absolutely gorgeous. We took this picture in the same exact spot that we took a photo 5 years ago. We're even wearing the same clothes! :-) Here's a page I did based on our 1st wedding anniversary--you'll notice that both our outfits and the background scenery are pretty much the same.
This is also a DT page for Clear Scraps & I'm entering this page in the most current challenge going on over at Bird Is The Word (BITW). The theme is Seasons--Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall.
OUAS challenge for my page.
here. I had a good amount of story telling for this page & storing the journaling in the form of a scroll doesn't take up too much space on my page & makes for a unique embellishment!
Here you can also see a small glass vial that I filled up with colorful beads from my stash. I tied a bit of twine around the neck of the bottle. The twine is from Riddersholm Designs.
A long strip of dark orange burlap ribbon is in the foremost background of my page.
Pennant Banner by Clear Scraps. I altered this banner in several ways.
First I colored them with several alcohol inks. I used Lake Mist, Copper, Meadow & Sunset Orange alcohol inks. On some of the banners I randomly applied drops of alcohol ink directly from the bottle. This creates more dramatic designs on the acrylic. Next with my crop-a-dile I punched 2 holes into each banner, ran green ribbon through them & finally a string of dark brown burlap twine to hold my banner together. Last step was to add dots of Gold Stickles all along the edges of each pennant in order to define them more.
12x12 Acrylic Sheet by Clear Scraps to create it. I shared a tutorial on how I created this flower over on the Clear Scraps blog. So if interested, feel free to check it out.
Thanks to all of you who stop by for a visit. Enjoy the rest of the week!
