February Inspirations by Catherine Giguère

"Amaze Yourself"

My first layout is a boy one. I used yellow, green and brown. I don't used these colors
 very often, but I love the result!

I did my background with doillies and modeling paste. You can see how I did by watching
 the video I made for you.

I used joint tape to add texture to my background. I painted all my chipboard with white gesso.

2 Crafty products used:
- Amaze Yourself 
- Skeleton Trees


I love doing pink layouts! This paper was perfect for me. First, I put a coat of clear gesso
 on my paper so that it wouldn't absorb the inks.

Then, I did my background with doilies, flowers mask and modeling paste.
I added pink inks on it to match my paper. 

I painted all my chipboards with white gesso and then I added a little bit of ink
 on them to match my background.

I put my 'Heart Lattice Panel' behind my picture to frame it. I used my
 'Leafy Twig Branches' under my flowers, I love the effects.

I stamped with an handscript stamp and a leafy branch stamp with black ink
 to add details and contrast.

2 Crafty products used:
- Heart Lattice Panel
- Leafy Twig Branches
- Mini Word Set 2

I hope that I inspired you, have a nice crafty day!
