Like the original artist, I used STUDIO CALICO papers - although I am not a member of their kit club and bought mine from a scrapbook store.
My layout is about my honey-bunny, who is my very favorite valentine. I thought the travel papers were perfect for my Maya Angelou quote, and I loved creating a layout that did not use the traditional Valentine pinks and reds. Don't get me wrong, I've got nothing against the traditional colors, but my unique guy deserved something a little less...ordinary, for lack of a better word.
Here are some close-ups (oohing and aahing not required but always appreciated!):
My hearts were cut out using my Silhouette (of course), and I outlined them all with a black fine-tip marker.
I only glued the middle section of some of my hearts so the edges could be lifted up to add more dimension.
Got to have a cluster around the picture - got ta'!
Annnddd, I stitched all around my "earth" and added tiny brads and the stars from my punched background.
That's it for me, but head on over to PRACTICAL SCRAPPERS to see how the rest of the girls were inspired on this Day of Love!
