Here's the Scoop | Hip Kit Club | Mixed Media Monday

Wednesday 18 November 2020



Hey everyone, here is a new layout for Hip Kit Club using the October Kits. You can find the October kits on the Hip Kit Club website.

Today's assignment is Mixed Media Monday so I am focussing on the Lindy's Magicals in the October Color Kit.

I began with a white background and tore a large strip of orange Simple Stories Cozy Days paper to place across the layout. I then started applying the Magicals powders. I applied them as powder to the layout and then spritzed water onto them ...I love doing this because of how the colour then explodes! This method shows all the amazing colours in the powders which you don't always see if you mix them with water before applying them to the paper.

I used all three colours and ended up with some very intense areas of colour on the layout. The sparkle and shimmer when these are dry is amazing!

I cut three pumpkins using an exclusive cut file called Pumpkin Face which can be found in the OctoberDownloads tab. I cut the solid shape only with the faces, rather than the outline shape. I cut these three times from orange Exclusive Hip Kit Club paper and backed them with navy cardstock from the October Cardstock kit. I arranged these together with my photos.

I had additional photos to add to this page, so I made a little pocket from patterned paper which I sewed together on my sewing machine. I added the extra photos to a long strip of paper which I concertina folded so it fit in the pocket - this is a great and easy way of included extra photos on a layout.

I embellished the layout with houses from the Jen Hadfield The Avenue sticker book and and other embellishments. I also added a title which I stitched through to keep in place.
Thanks so much for joining me today and I hope you have enjoyed this layout and video.

Happy scrapping
