February Bright with Nicole Doiron

Right in the midst of a cold white winter here in Canada, I thought
 I'd go bright, bold and beautiful with my creations this month. 
"We Adore You Two"

 This is a brand new layout inspired by the February challenge at
Once Upon a Sketch as well as the Mixed Media challenge over at Berry71bleu.

 For the title, I combined the "Adore You" piece with some
 "Dainty Alphabet" which I heat embossed with black embossing enamel.

You see here a beautiful peacock "Feather" along with the "Leafy Silhouettes"
tucked behind my flowers.  They were treated with molding paste and acrylic
silk glaze. I lined  the right edge of my layout are the "Evan's Swirls".

A few of "Sharon's Butterflies" were the perfect
add-on for this whimsical Summery layout.

 I love all of 2Crafty Adornment sets...  The purple piece comes from "Adornment Set 3".

Now on to my second  layout which was inspired by the Valentine-themed mood board
 over at Scrap Around The World
  as well as this month's Scrappy Friends challenges

"Sisters are Attached @ the Heart"

 As you can see, my style can vary greatly from one layout to the next.  
With this one, I veered towards more clean straight lines 
and fun bold patterns on a lighter background.

I love the "Sisters Are Attached @ the Heart" title and I knew that it would
 fit perfectly with this picture of my nieces Ella and Daphne being silly and having fun together.

 The "Winged Hearts" set is a must-have for your Valentine-themed projects.

If you love flowers as I do, you will love the "Daisy Flower" pack - you get 6 beautiful daisies 
which you can paint or mist any way you want to.  I simply painted mine with pink acrylic paint.

Banners have been such a huge scrapbooking trend in 2013 and the trend is not over.
Here you can see I used some pieces from the "Scallop Circle Bunting" set.

And finally, here is another bold and bright layout which I had created as my DT reveal for 
Scrap & Music challenge #20, as shared HERE on my blog.

"We are Family"

 This is such a fun layout featuring lots of 2Crafty chippies.
I adore this picture of Ella and Daphne goofing around with their cousin Olivia.

 Starting off with some "Alphabet Dainty" and "Scrabble Tiles" for the title.

The "Circle Flowers" are so much fun - I added lots...

 and lots.

 I tucked a piece of the "Frame Loopy Love Hearts" behind the embellishments
 above the picture and added a touch of black with a few arrows
 from the "Assorted Arrows" pack.

And now one last look at these three beautiful and happy little girls.

I hope I've brightened up your day a little with this February Bright reveal.

Come visit me at Scrap-Utopia to see more of my creations.
