Fanny- 2x Plus de Fun **TECHNIQUE WEEK**

I saw on the web the waterfall technique used to make cards. It was so nice that I wanted to try it, but I didn’t want to do a card. So I made a layout for my daughter’s album utilizing this technique. When you pull the ribbon , you can see photos cascading down. This is a great way to use several pictures on a layout!

Begin by making the waterfall element.
1. Cut a 30.5cm x 9.5cm strip from a sheet of Bazzill cardstock. Place the strip horizontally and create 8 score lines: the first at 15 cm from the right side and the next score lines at 1.5cm, 3 cm, 4.5 cm, 6 cm, 7.5cm, 9 cm and 10.5 cm.

2. Fold on each scored lines. Turn over the strip and fold again. You can adhere a piece of grungeboard at the end of this strip (in the 15 cm part) and staple a ribbon: it will be easier to pull off the waterfall strip. Ink all the elements.

3. Place the folded strip on a page.
Cut a 30.5cm x 2 cm strip from Bazzill cardstock.This is the anchor strip.Place it horizontally on a 30.5cm x 30.5 cm page. Do not adhere yet!
Slide the pull tab end of the waterfall underneath the anchor strip and fold the waterfall over the top of the anchor strip.
Position the waterfall element where you want on the 30.5cm x30.5 cm page. Apply adhesive to the back of the bottom edge of the first flap of the waterfall element and adhere it to the anchor strip.
Apply adhesive tape to the anchor strip on either side of the waterfall strip.Do not apply adhesive on the waterfall piece.

4. Matte all photos on 8 cm x 6.5 cm papers and ink edges ( 7 photos) . Adhere them between each score line (do not apply adhesive on the lines themselves).Start from the bottom of the waterfall to the top...
5. The waterfall is now complete.

Let’s adhere bigger photos on the left of the page. Add grungeboards, and flowers. You can add stickles. Place title and journaling.
