Archiscraps this month has a challenge involving distressing and wood.... a perfect combination for the photo I've used on my layout.


This is the juvenile of our 2008-2009 tawny pair. By far, this particular one has been the most inquisitive, wide-awake juvie. Everything attracted its attention when it should have been sleeping!! Maybe it had ADHD!! This shot is when its head feathers were really misbehaving.
I can relate to that at the moment, with my hair, after chemo, wanting to grow in different directions and never knowing what it'll be like each day.
I've used corrugated packaging, torn and inked for the background. To this I've added additional layers of paper, fibre, and bark from trees. Additional wooden components are the leaves and speech bubble.
This is the inspiration photo from archiscraps.

Pop on over and check it out.
Catch you soon,
Cheers, Di
