Nikki Sivils U R My Favorite
Nikki Sivils Scrapbook U R My Favorite “You, You, You” paper is fabulous. Creating a layout is quick and easy using this pattern paper as the foundation for your layout. I love the monochromatic theme, scalloped edges, flourish designs and the little crowns in each corner. I followed the design in each scallop as my guide for placing a decorative brad, just use a paper piercer for punching the holes.
The edges of the photo were dry brushed with acrylic paint to coordinate with the papers. To add dimension to the embellishments, I used Helmar ZAPDOTS. Check out the close up photos of placement of Helmar ZAPDOTS.
Elle’s Studio has a huge selection of tags; here I used Saltwater Taffy Journaling Tag as a frame for my number two. I altered the tag by sanding down the edges and embellishing with a flower.
