Happy birthday OBW!

This week the linky party blog Our Beautiful World turned two!

Two years ago, Kirsty came to me with the idea of starting a photo blog where people from all over the world could share their world with each other through weekly word prompts or themes.

Together we created the blog and we started with a team of 5 photography lovers from the United States, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Puerto Rico and The Netherlands.

There were some changes in the team since then, but the linky parties haven't changed. It's still a wonderful place to mingle, share and meet.

So I'm wishing OBW a happy second birthday and hopefully there will be many more years to enjoy!

Thank you Kirsty for taking the initiative to start with OBW!

This week there will be a little giveaway at OBW. So hop over to the blog to read all about it and to join OBW this week with the theme TWO is better than one!

The photos in this blog post are from a card I made today. I was playing with modeling paste and this is what came out of it.

With a vintage bird image from the Graphics Fairy I think. The flower I made with old bed sheets painted with acrylic paints and a button from the thrift store.

I love to explore and experiment and this was the first time I used modeling paste.

But here's a tip:

Please do run your card through the sewing machine BEFORE you apply the paste to it.


Wishing you a beautiful day!
