Movie Poster Valentine's Day Layout

I love this unique challenge site called From Screen 2 Scrap!. I always loved scrapping about movies...so I like to try make a layout based on their February challenge; Movie Poster "Valentine's Day".

Here is the inspiration:

To get extra 6 bonus points, you must use two hearts on the page (1 pt), black background (2 pts) and at least 10 tiny photos (3 pts).

...and this is my interpretation:

I actually used black gesso to cover my pink cardstock. This is going to be my background. I left a few pink spots here and there.



I wrote the journaling at the bottom as if it is the movie credits, like in the poster. I wanted my layout to be looking similar to the movie poster. So I used many tiny photos in film strips, glued on bright pink corrugated papers as background. 



My movie characters are basically my three cats, and I doodled each of their names on the spots where I left the background bare. Tried to mimic the actors' names on the poster :). I used minimal embellishments, just a crochet flower and a few buttons. I made a heart from a twine!. Lastly, I added a stamped heart and 
wrote 2.14.12 in the center, to imitate the heart @ the bottom of the movie poster.


It's a fun layout for me. Thank you for visiting.

Shahrul
