Happy Thursday! I hope you are having a great day so far! The Twinery and Nikki Sivils are teaming up today to showcase some very beautiful twine and paper. I am so excited to share my scrapbook layout using the Audrey collection from Nikki Sivils and The Twinery's beautiful twine.
I don't know about you, but I tend to have the best intentions to use scrapbook kits, but I end up not knowing what to do with the fun stickers and punch outs. Well...I finally did it - I tried something new and I can't believe that I've been wasting all of those fun goodies.
I did try something a little different. I gave some of the punch-out images a little more oomph by layering them OVER grunge board and then adding glossy accents on top. I was so happy with the results. All of the punch-outs and stickers are adorable on their own, but I love the extra dimension the grungeboard and glossy accents add.
I applied a thin line of glue (I use Martha Stewart Gel Adhesive) and then just placed my baker's twine on top. I added the little bows on top. I then added the cute little banner - the glossy accents caused the pennants to curl up a bit on the bottom. Instead of fighting it, I think it gives it a more realistic look.
I may have gone a little crazy with the glossy accents because I even added it to the letter stickers from the Audrey kit.
Now...if you'd like a chance to win a little blog candy today, make sure you leave comments on The Twinery's blog, Nikki Sivils blog and each of the participants in today's fun team-up. There will be EVEN more inspiration tomorrow, so make to check The Twinery's blog for even more projects! The Twinery will be giving away a Colorful Bundle of baker's twine.
