February.. the LOVE month.. my birthday month :)
Here is my first layout that I hope will inspire you in joining us again for this month's challenge: " ALL ABOUT LOVE"
I wanted subtle texture for my background, and not too many colors (a break from my colorful and very dimensional projects from last month. I started with a mask and my home made texture paste. I used a couple of oil pastel colors (with shimmer) to add some colors, after the texture paste dried. The gold doesn't show but I mixed it with pink. Then using a sponge, I just rubbed everything in a downward/upward motion to spread it.
I cut out the hearts from a couple of gold doilies. Then folded in half and adhered a smaller heart on top of the other. Added small Prima flowers and knotted silver thread.
Strips of papers with inked edges to mat my photos. I also used a scrap of small card boards under the photos for more depth. Embellished with some clusters of flowers, stickers, enamel dots, knots of silver thread, and fuzzy cut bicycles.
I really hope I got your inspiration flowing :) Check out the challenge details after this image...
