Hip Kit Club | Artful Clusters & Stickers | May 2017 Kits

Today, I have a layout I have created for the Hip Kit Club  showcasing ‘Artful Clusters’ and ‘Stickers’. In fact I have challenged myself to only use ‘things that stick’ and mixed media on my page so my layout has no other elements to it and I love how it turned out!

I wanted to create two clusters on my page so I started off by adding some white gesso and mixed media work with the Prima WaterColor confections (May 2017 Color Kit) watered down to decrease their intensity. I have used the ‘grassland’ and ‘thunderstorm’ colours together to create a two toned effect as these colours matched my photos the best. I then added lots of stickers mainly from the Shimelle little by little collection sticker book from the May 2017 Project Life Kit. This book of stickers had so many options from washi to alphas to that adorable bear!! I kept my colour palette quite simple with mainly blues/greens and black and white.

Hip Kit Club | May 2017 kits | Going Whimsical

Today, I am capturing the good times with a Whimsical layout for Hip Kit Club featuring a snapchat photo, a mixed media cut file and lots of layering!

My layout actually started with a piece of white cardstock that I had added some mixed media work with the Prima Confections watercolors from the May 2017 Color Kit which I had discarded from a previous layout as it just didn’t work.   I really loved the colours so I cut out the ‘Hot Air Balloon’ from the May Hip Kit Cut files designed by Kim Watson.  I then backed this cut file on the amazing Dear Lizzy Up & Away Ombre patterned paper and this became the basis of my layout.

Using a cut file as a central focus on your layout gives you a great platform for embellishing – I just love how fun the cut file is so I wanted to add in some fun embellishing too.  I started with fussy cutting out the ‘Capture the Good Times’ from the Pink Fresh Studio Dream on patterned paper.  I specifically chose this phrase as the photo of my daughter with a snapchat filter on was taken whilst we were recently in Hospital with her with pneumonia and she was feeling a bit better at this point so I wanted to reflect that in my title.

I then added lots of embellishing with the ephemera from both Shimelle Little By Little collection from the May 2017 Project Life Kit and the Hip Kit Exclusive ephemera designed by Kimberly from the May 2017 Main Kit.  These two sets work so well together don’t you think!

I hope you have enjoyed my Whimsical layout with cut files and ephemera today.
