Double LO made at crop last Saturday

Last Saturday was my crop day, we had a kit to make a fabulous double LO out of. It was a LO that enable you to use lots of phtos without making the LO look overcrowded I did a LO of my younger son 1st birthday, which was back in 1985 lol
I really enjoyed doing this LO the arrows were plain chipboard which I painted in red acrylic paint using just a wet wipe, I got red paint all over me as well lol, I love messy play. We were also given homework to do the same LO using different papers, lol well at least its the type of homework I will have fun doing.

July Monthly Scrapbook Layout challenge set this month by the Lovely Gina

This months Layout challenge on the Docraft forum was set by Gina The challenge is to use a
picture of a bird or birds.  (photo/hand drawn/painted) your choice.  
DRAMATIC decoupage of flowers, bright summer colours.
your own title
a poem (your own or copied)
hand drawn doodles and scrolls.
the aim is for it to be seen 20yrds away. and full of summer colours. 
I manged all apart from the title which I might add on window frame of LO later. I made the background using a plain white piece of paper I used a piece of wet and dry that hubby cut of main block for me about about an inch and half by and inch, which I put into brown, red, and black ink pads I then pressed it onto the paper to form a brick wall background. I then did in between the brick with brown for mortar. The photograph was printed out on handmade paper to give it a more textured and almost material appearance, which I am not sure the camera, or my photography abilities will pick up, but I am pleased with the results of it. I made a window frame out of wood effect paper. The window box at the bottom was made from hand crafted pink paper, which I inked over with brown.. I used leaves I cut out with my big shot and also loads of flowers which I made some time ago and can be found on an older post on my blog I also cut out a little bird, well quite big bird using a sizzix die and added that to the bottom right corner ( the swirls are o its wing Gina lol). I then added my poem on a tag, and used fluffy stuff and liquid pearls to add berries to flowers for eye popping requirements of LO, I hope its eye popping enough ...lol , then I thought I best stop adding and call it done.
