Paint techniques ..... part 2

I have found myself stuck in a rut of only scrapping single photo LOs recently so I decided to create a multi photo LO for a change.

I just love the new October Afternoon ducks in a row collection, and thought it would be perfect for these photos, even though its not a baby LO.

I cut rectangles from the this little piggy and splish splash papers. I went round the edges of the two paper rectangles with my paint dabber and then layered the rectangles up finishing off with one of the Ducks in a Row - Label Stickers


I took the scallop die cut from the Ducks in a Row - Die Cut Shapes sheet and again edged with my paint dabber



I stuck the scalloped die cut to the bottom of my layered paper rectangle




I cut a strip from the Peek-a-Boo paper and stuck this behind the layered rectangles

I took the three photos that I wanted to use and painted round the edges of all the photos with my paint dabber to frame each photo


I then attached the photos to the LO




I painted a messy stripe under the bottom photo



And then added a butterfly die cut from the Ducks in a Row - Die Cut Shapes, I attached the die cut using 3D foam


I wanted a paint effect coming from the butterfly so I painted some bubble wrap in a swirl shape



And stamped this onto my LO


I used the same technique and added some more paint to the top left hand side photo



I cut some more rectangles to fill the space in the bottom left hand corner and added another label sticker. For my title I used Ducks in a Row - Schoolroom Alphabet Stickers, some more label stickers and some making memories tiny alphas. I also added some baby blue rik rak to the top of the scalloped die cut shape.

Here is my finished LO
