OLW - One

One Little Word (OLW) is having it's first birthday this week so the chosen word is One. I based this page on one seen done by Francine Clouden. I like the simplicity of it & as I haven't done much work with paint on layouts, thought it was high time I stopped being such a scaredy cat & give it a go..
DecoArt blue acrylic paint. Big Wild Things, Gel-A-Tin stamps. Blue sequin waste. HS Clock stamps on acetate & alcohol inked with Rangers, stream & denim. Star metal tag, stamped using Studio G boys acrylic set (also the tiny frog above the word one) I applied crackle medium to the star. Journal block & circle around clock both HS acrylic stamps. Title, Scenic Route & foam stickers. The photo was taken by myself 3 years ago at my Step Nephew Ollie's birthday. (Ollie is the one in the red checked shirt) I was playing around with my dad's company camera & when I uploaded this to my PC it blew me away.
I decided I HAD to have that camera. Two months later I had tracked one down. It was already an old model but I did it. I have since gone on to take many fab shots, which include my sister's wedding & am so glad I persued my wish. What I love about this picture is that As we sang happy birthday Ollie's friends were also getting ready to blow too!! A real chance shot. I love my Konica Minolta Dimage Z1!!!

I love how you stamped the background w/ the paint. I've used paint on several layouts, but haven't thought of stamping on the background as well. thanks for sharing!
