February Inspiration With Ros

"Dogs Have a Way"

For my first layout this month I thought I would do something
completely different and use patterned paper.
Definitely not something I usually do.

I did stick with my normal trend of, the smaller the photo, the better.
I wanted my title to be a soft pink, like what was on the paper, and I have
heat embossed this.
  With my title being so big in comparison to the photo, I decided 
on the bright lime colour so that the photo still stood out on the page.
The circle frames were also heat embossed.

I have mounted my title on the middle piece of the Circle Revolution set.  
I've done this to help the title stand out against
the pattern on the paper.  I also used the Leafy Rounds
to layer all this on, leaving them plain has helped blend the busy cluster.

My page has been finished off with a little cluster on the opposite
side of the page.

"Selfie, inspired by Valerie"

Does my second page look familiar?

It was totally inspired by a page featured on this blog at the start
of February, by fellow DT member Valerie Ouellet.
I saw her page and fell totally in love and just had to have
a play with some black, red and white.

My page was screaming out for something else, so I added a little green.

My Leafy Vines, Flower Clusters and Selfie title were all 
coloured with my black big brush.
The title has also been coated in Glossy Accents to give it a nice shine.

For the Flower Cluster on the right of the page has been cut so as to
sit neatly along the edge of the page.
