February Calendar Page

Hello all! I am lagging behind a bit on this too! I had a few photo sessions at the end of January, coupled with some poor use of time, and I just got my February calendar page done! I started with the January 2 page sketch from Stick it Down:

I tried to stay pretty true to the sketch, but got creative in how I added more photos to the layout. I also moved the title a bit.

I started the layout by spreading some modeling paste, that I had colored grey with spray ink, over a heart mask. While that dried, I cut pieces of patterned paper and adhered them to the back of my photos to make multicolored and multipatterned photo mats. I used my Cricut and Sure Cuts a Lot to cut the title. For "February," I used a couple of Gelatos and a paintbrush to create the ombre effect. I used the same colors of Gelatos for the Grundgeboard arrow (which started a hinge, but I cut it to be what I wanted).

After I had all of the photos and journaling attached, I fussy cut some flowers from coordinating paper to line the bottom of the layout. To add some sparkle, I spread some glue over parts of the flowers and then sprinkled on some glitter.

I was also inspired by the tic tac toe challenge at Scrap Our Stash (I used the center column):
