Looking for a fun water embellishment for your swimming themed layouts? Try this simple look made up of three elements:
• paper splash droplets
• Nuvo Drop droplets
Combining these three elements can create an eye-catching, fun detail to your water themed pages. You can easily customize them to fit any size or style and mix and match the pieces to better fit your supplies and what you have on hand.
Here's how I created mine:
First I drew the droplets and cut them out. At the time I didn't have a die cutting machine so I had to rely on my own hand to design those pieces. If you don't have a die cutting machine, these droplets are very easy to draw. Either way, you can custom fit them to your design.
I added a hand-stitched border to a few of the larger paper droplets.
Next I added in some small flourish stickers overlapped onto the paper droplets.
The last element I added were small Nuvo Drop droplets.
If you want to see how they were created check out my Nuvo Drop YouTube video.
The tiny little droplets are a fun detail to complete the look.
