Pages 2 Girls DT Project- February- Kate

Hi everyone!
It's Kate here and it's February already, I can't believe it. 
In keeping with the theme of the month of LOVE, I have created two layouts to hopefully inspire you to celebrate the ones you ADORE in life.

I was really excited to receive this kit to play with. Such a contrast to the fun masculine retro kit from January, I couldn't wait to get stuck into this kit of reds, pinks, and pretty turquoise.


This is a double 12x12 layout I have put together. My best Canadian friend in the world had these romantic engagement photos done and I thought they were a perfect reflection of love.
First off I used some Kaiser paint on the cardstock base. I found the white paint really broke up the red and added a bit of texture and contrast. Gesso would be great for this as well. 
I used strips of paper and Collections tissue paper at the bottom of the base and then lined and overlapped the photos across the page. I added clusters to each end, cut a Martha Stewart Doily in half and attached to the top and ties a ribbon bow for the bottom. Cutting individual Blommers trim pieces to add to the clusters makes that trim go even further!

- Kaiser paint
- Bazzill cardstock- Pomegranate Splash
- My Minds Eye Love Me Patterned Papers
- Heartwarming Valentine Love Stickers
- Blommers Trim Berry
- Kaiser blooms resin
- Martha Doily

This single 12x12 layout was created with the inspiration from the photo of my 21 year old niece at the beach.The colours were just a perfect match, and I really wanted to make a fun, young feminine type page. Doodling is perfect for adding that extra 'fun' to a layout, as it reflects carefree!! 

Using my trimmer I was able to add a bit of interest to the base of my layout by cutting a frame and then a smaller square from the remaining paper. In between them both, i used a paintbrush dipped in glimmermist to add a 'watery' type impression on the page (since she is at the beach and all). And the giant ribbon rose is simple enough to make by layering it around and around - adhered with a hot glue gun and a gorgeous Kaiser resin flower in the centre.
