SIL challenge week 4

A last minute submission to the Scrap-It-Lah challenge...

It's week 4 of their seven-week blog hop and this is my take:



Life has its ups and downs, and today, I'm scrapping a fearful moment for Joey. I started out with gray cardstock to coordinate with the granites in the photos. But it was too cool for my liking. So it was inked,  misted, sprayed and generally altered to it's current state.


The birdcage die cut is chipboard which have been painted with acrylic, then smeared with alcohol ink, as has the bird. It did not turn out dark enough, so I used black solvent ink to darken the edges.

The bird is peeking out of the cage, akin to tasting a new freedom. And it can sometimes be quite scary out there...




The button has also been coloured with alcohol ink to coordinate with the whole layout.
