Singing and Ringing

Great day scrapbooking at our local craft shop in Embsay today. I started this off during the craft retreat and havn't looked at it since so thought I'd better get it finished. The photo's are of a fantastic art installation not too far from us, built on the moors miles from anywhere, called the Singing Ringing Tree. Each of the pipes is tuned so that when the wind blows it emits an eerie but very lovely sound which changes as the direction of the wind changes. The photo's were taken on one of the rare occasions that Al and I have time to ourselves, and although it was a real effort to get out and do something, we had a great day.

The photo's are both hinged, behind one are more photo's of the 'tree' and behind the other is my journaling . I cant remember what the papers are 'cos it's so long since I bought them in a sale. The title was cut with the robo crop, (all the leftover letters from other projects) which I have triple embossed and while hot, sprinkled with microbeads.

A real touchy feely page!

This is really great Michelle, what fab photos, I've never seen these art installations before-makes for a really striking scrapbook page. I love the idea of hinging your photos to find more underneath-ingenius!!
