February Challenge - Scrap It Girl

YAY - it's February and it's my first challenge over at Scrap It Girl.  This month's challenge is to use Hearts on your layout, being February and Valentines "Hearts" just make sense.

I have created a layout of my niece's.  They had a photo shoot when they were all together and the photo's are just sooo gorgeous so couldn't resist creating a layout using them.

I started with a bright orange patterned paper and put Gesso on the whole page so I could get to work with my water colours.  I have actually used some water colours and the blue is actually sprINKlers from October Afternoon mixed with some water to tone it down a little.


I cut out some feathers from the October Afternoon pp's and added some muslin underneath to give it a feathery feel.

Here is what we are giving to our challenge winner this month.   A variety of doily’s, hearts, buttons, journal cards, ribbon, feathers, bling, straws, misc. embellishments, paper, and more hearts.  Basically a collection of pretties.. to use on any of your upcoming projects.   

So head on over to the blog to see the other gorgeous creations from the rest of the Design Team and give it a go and be in the running to win a prize from Scrap It Girl.  

TFL & Happy Scrapping
