School holiday trip to Rotarua
The first LO uses October Afternoon's new collection "Seaside". I am totally in love with the blues and greens and all the vintage imagery in these papers. I used old chipboard letters as masks to spray the background and leave the word 'love' uninked. I used an idea from Creating Keepsakes magazine to make the rosette.
The second LO uses up scraps from my Sassafrass paper collection. I love the main photo of little Benji enjoying his first ever icecream cone and the bright colours and images were a perfect match. The machine stitching ties it all together.
The final LO showcases photos of Benji in the bath. I have several bath time LOs so I used these photos to tell the story of his nickname and how he got it. I made the fabric yoyo flower using a cheap template that I picked up from Spotlight. The papers are mainly Echo Park and October Afternoon. Thanks for looking.
