Journey of our Friendship

I just finished completing this layout for a challenge over at Bird is the Word using the word Journey. I created this layout about my friendship with one of my best friends who I have known since birth! We shared the same crib so we have been friends forever. I kept my messy handwriting at the back this time.
Since this layout was going to be extra special I dedicated more time than usual to it. I painted the background with a mixture of PVA glue and these art mosaic pieces. They are small pieces of shattered glass. Then I sprayed with some fine glitter mist. I then got a piece of cardboard which came with a toy and painted it with a mixture of silver and pink Stickles. I then wrapped this in a fine pink mesh and placed the picture on top with foam adhesive. It is very dimensional this layout but then I did want to create something special.
I then took 3 chipboard butterflies and embossed them with shiny pink embossing powder. I used hardly any patterned paper. Just a few pieces here and there to ground these little Jenni Bowlin embellishments. I then used some Perfect Pearls to add some details to the butterflies
Took me about 2-3 hours to complete this one so actually it did not take me that long
I have also taken loads of pictures of my scrappy room to add here as I don't know about you but I am always interested in how people organise their stuff!!!
