Peek-E-Boo


I wanted to create a page that captures how my daughter says peek-a-boo or should I say peek-e-boo.  I had a lot of fun playing around with this page and managed to captured some photos of my progress as I went along.


First I chose my photo and paper.  Then I got out some water color and started to paint.  At first I made some clouds, but they were looking rather sad so I just made and "artistic" blob.  You can never go wrong with blobs.


Instead of putting my photo on top I decided to cut out where I wanted it and laid it underneath.  It definitely adds a new look without a lot of effort.


I then made these half chevron shapes and cut them out.  I worked my way down one of the water color strips and made some more water color blobs and put them behind each cutout.  I was a little disappointed that the lime green dried more yellow.


Then I sewed on some clay embellishments.


I had my sewing machine out so I sewed around the photo and around this flag.  It was too much blue at first so I cut another smaller flag out of the paper and sewed it on top.  That flag was lonely so I cut out another flag from the watercolor blobs.


I glued my tittle down and did a little bit of journaling and I was done! It really turned out to be a fun pages.
