How to Embellish a Cute Little Girl Layout with Dew Drops

Hello,
It’s Karen… I’m here to share a super easy way to embellish a little girl layout. Dew Drops were the perfect way to finish off this layout of my adorable niece.  I created a trio of bubbly clusters. By using multiple sizes in different colors of Dew Drops, I created a fun and flirty page with a subtle sense of motion.  Let’s go, follow me!

 

Directions:
1. Select two coordinating scrapbook papers. Cut a strip 4″ wide and adhere it to the bottom edge of the 12×12″.  Add a 1″ wide border strip at the join of the two papers.  (TIP:  Only apply adhesive to one end of the border strip so that photos may be tucked in.)

2. Matte one photo with coordinating solid paper.  Adhere the photo at a slight angle. Then carefully slide the other photo under the border strip to look casually tucked in so it appears to be held in place by the border strip.  Add a few scraps of patterned paper to peak out from behind the photos and apply adhesive to secure everything.

3. Embellish with a large coordinating embellishment in the lower right corner.

4. To add interest, use 3 or 4 different colors and sizes of Dew Drops to form three distinct bubbly clusters. Use glue dots for ease of application.  (aka – a mess free stress free method)

TIP: To avoid disappointment and frustration, place them onto the layout without adhesive to practice the arrangement.  When you are satisfied, adhere them replacing the loose Dew Drops one at a time.  Alternatively, take a photo of the layout before you move anything so that you can refer to it when you are ready to glue everything into place.
