JustNick Cut File Store

Hey there! Niki back today with another layout using a background file and the new Boys Rule collection by Cocoa Vanilla. I've used the Imperfect Polka Dot Background, but instead of using it as a whole background, I deleted some of it first so the design was left at the top only. I actually also re-sized it too so that my dots were a bit smaller, and then I backfilled all those dots with papers from the Boys Rule Collection.
I backfilled all the dots with papers raised on foam pads to give my background lots of dimension, I wanted to focus on blues and greys in this layout so avoided the green tones in the collection.
I decorated the background using lots of enamel dots and other small embellishments and I used journaling cards and ephemera to build my photo stack.
I extended the embellished areas down below my photos and added more enamel dots to link the top part of the background with the rest of the layout.
Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you've enjoyed my layout and what will you try with background cut files?
Happy scrapping xx
