PEACE - New Bird is the Word

The new word for BITW is PEACE.. you can use it in your journalling or in your title... I usually go to google and type in quotes on..... (the word) and get lots of lovely quotes to use on my layout, but this time I just went with the thoughts I felt when I looked at the photo I used....

I got one of my kids to take a photo of me...(because I am usually on the other end of the camera!!) I am at Stradbroke Island and somehow I could gaze out at the water for hours, I love the peaceful feeling it gives me.. even if the waves are choppy, there is something wonderful about the ocean....

In solitary moments, I find peace...



and a bit closer..





I have used texture paste and a mask for the back ground and lots of die cut flourishes and kaiser wood pieces, stamped images and flowers and some old rope that I cut off a gift bag to all mash in together for beach stuff.

I hope you can give this word a go, there is still time for the word SHADOW too.. pop back HERE and see what the other DT have done with this word, and I hope you get inspired to join in!!

Thanks for coming by, and thanks for all the wonderful comments too.. I really do appreciate them!!
