Silly Girl for Basically Bare

Just a note, over the next few weeks, you will probably see a little more Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker than usual.  I have some things coming up and I realized that I have not blogged a ton of stuff over here!  So, if you love Nikki Sivils, you are in for a treat.  If not, get some ideas from them.  I will just post them here and there and probably won't even do supply lists.

I had a layout up over on the Basically Bare blog this weekend.  I am just now getting around to blogging it.  (note to self, get blog posts scheduled in advance).  I had a ton of fun making this one and it is totally OUT of my comfort zone.  The DT over at Basically Bare encouraged me to try it and see how it went.  I ended up LOVING this!  I don't want to do this type of layout all the time, but if I have time to play, it is certainly fun to do.

Supplies: Pattern Paper-American Crafts (Amy Tangerine Sketchbook); Basically Bare Embellishments-Dress Form and canvas skirt, Fanciful Frame, Banner pieces, Hearts (canvas and cardboard): Punch-EK Success, Jenni Bowlin, and Martha Stewart; Pen-Zig Micron and American Crafts; Stamp-Lawn Fawn; Ink-Jenni Bowlin; Jute-American Crafts; Doily-Wilton; Distress Stains and Martha Stewart Paint 

The pattern paper made is pretty easy to get a little "artsy".  And I had fun doing it!  I went into a lot of detail over on the Basically Bare I am not going to do it here...If you want to know more about how I did anything, just leave me a comment, email me or head over to the BB blog!  I am just going to post some detail pics for your viewing pleasure.  

I am falling more in love with the dress form...that I thought I would never use or be able to use!  

I lucked out and my little picture fit into the frame!  

Canvas hearts...luv these and then the pink and yellow is a cardboard heart cut in half.  I doodled!!!  LOL

That is all from me today.  It has been somewhat busy weekend and I am just going to try to get thru the week until Thursday.  I took Friday off to make an "extended" holiday weekend!!  See you later in the week!


  1. Very bright and hope you don't mind me saying crazy. But I really love it some much pattern and colour it shouldn't work but it does fantastically well I really like it. I am definitely following for inspiration

  2. Could not tell you were out of your comfort zone! This is beautiful girlie!
