My Basically Bare Project for the Nikki Sivils Swap

I took these pictures on the layout on my (work) phone with the Retro Camera app.  It's a pretty good app, although I think the apps for iPhone are better...such as Instagram.  Which I know you can get for android now, but I am wanting that iPhone 5 to come out...dang it!  If you hear rumors, let a girl in on them...kay?

I went into detail over on the Basically Bare blog about the layout and what I did.  To summarize,  I covered and altered the camera and used it to place my journaling spot.  I also cut that film strip in half to get a little more mileage across my page out of it.  After I got all that done..I decided it needed something at the I hand cut the flowers out, cut them in half and then just lined them up in a border strip across the top of the page... 

Supplies: Pattern Paper-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker (Exit Here); Die Cuts-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker (Exit Here); Letter Stickers-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker; Ink-Prima Chalk Ink; Felt Flower and Papparatzi Set (camera & filmstrips)-Basically Bare; Adhesive-Scotch, Glue Arts and Fabri-Tac; Buttons-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker

couple of close ups of that film strip.....

And you know I am a Nikon I had to make the camera a Nikon.  I also used a felt blossom for the "lens" of the camera.  I used my Zig pen to write that on there. Love those pens for writing!

So, that's my project for the Basically Bare/Nikki Sivils blog post on the Basically Bare blog.  Be sure to comment on Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker's blog both days.  We are having a giveaway over there each day, so two chanced to win.
