Bird is the Word 'Journey'

Hello all,

I am loving that I am able to fit more challenges in this week :0)

My layout, inspired by the word journey, is of DGD and DD#1 taking Basil for a walk. Just as I took this photo DGD started reciting the poem 'We're going on a bear hunt'

I'm not sure whether it is familiar to all of you, if you are interested you can see it being performed here: Michael Rosen on YouTube

Anyway the crux of the poem is that they go through various things on their journey to find the bear. All of these are represented in the layout.

Long grass - cut on Cricut
River - blue Chalk Mist
Mud - ink splats with Perfect Pearls dropped into it and then blasted with hairspray!
Forest - stamped American Crafts 'Dear Lizzy' trees
Snowstorm - stamped Inkadinkado snowflakes
and of course a bear!!

Papers are old American Crafts that I found in a random box! 

I really like how the hairspray has smudged the mica powder - you can see it even better in the photo below :0)

I really enjoyed playing with this one. The new word is out so go and have a play with 'HEART'. Thanks for stopping by,
