Beware, this is a long post with lots of pictures.My mini album with Nikki Sivils' North Pole Nights papers. I used heat embossing, so love that technique! The stamp swirl is also Nikki's, from the U R my favorite line
Lots and lots of fabric from Tilda.
The side of the album without the fabric I used Glimmer Mist and Shimmerz Spritz to give it some color.
This page is from a childerens book, found on a book market,
the tag is yet again heat embossed (Ranger silver)
Puff paint by Tulip to get the white dots
The little bird and button are Tilda's
Sweet tree, it's Nikki's!
Shimmerz Spritz to color the flowers
and the leaves!
I added some Gesso on the chipboard heart and sprayed it with Shimmerz
Painted over the Prima felt flowers with Shimmerz Paint
I used the transparency by 7 Gypsies, stamped with Nikki Sivils alpha's and covered it while the ink was still wet.
This was a challenge on Nikki Sivils' blog, what was Xmas like for you as a child. So I went through my old albums and found only two photo's! This one I remember most, my mum bought new balls for the tree, all blue. That was so modern!
Don't you just love this North Pole Nights line of Nikki's. It's my favorite so far.
I used (yes, I know I always do) Shimmerz Paint on the flowers, Shimmerz Spitz on the star border (Bazzil), the Big Brads are also Nikki Sivils.
Crystals are hotfix.
Go check out Nikki's blog for more great layouts and the winner of the challenge.
Here a little tutoiral, I was working with this Post-it tape and thought that it could be cool to let you see the steps how to get to the layout.
I used Cardstock and patterned paper by Nikki Sivils, Boo-tifulI placed the tape first from top to bottom in the middle and went on to get this: Then I cut up the paper between the tape, no need to be precize
This is what you have left after cutting
If you like how it looks on your cardstock, glue it down
And add some different papers, these are also from the Boo-tiful line
The book page is from Wuthering Heights that I picked up at a local bookmarket.
I used my Heidi Swapp edge distresser and lots of ink for the egdes
For the edges of the photo I used MM paint
Alpha is chipboard that you can play with how you like it
I used MM paint first
Then stamped it with Versamark, the stamp is also Nikki Sivils, U R my favorite line
This is one of my favorite techniques, heat embossing, with Blonde Moments Add some jounaling, bling and flower and ..........
There you go, the result.
Hope you like it and also will try out working with tape and heat embossing Enjoy and have a creative week!
Don't forget, almost time for Little Shop of sketches!
