Smile, I Love You | Hip Kit Club | Mixed Media Monday using February 2021 Kits

Wednesday 24 March 2021


Hey everyone, I have a new layout and video to share today for Hip Kit Club. I'm using the February 2021 Kits which you can find on the website here. My assignment today is Mixed Media Monday and to create a rainbow effect.

I began with a sheet of Marshmallow cardstock. I then reached for my February Color Kit which has three colours of Shimmerz Paints: Razzeldazzel Berry, Tickle Me Turquoise and Dandy Lion. I used these to create some areas of colour on my background. I sprayed on the Razzeldazzel Berry but applied the others with the packaging technique.

I mixed a green colour using the red and blue and applied that too. Then I reached for some previous Color Kits for the other colours: Precious Posy and Meet Me @ Sunset from the January Colour Kit and Naughty or Nice from the December Colour Kit. I added these to my background too and added splatters of all the colours in the same colour-on-colour areas.

Once my background was dry I then put the rest of the layout together. I decided to embellish in a colour-on-colour style. I reached for the exclusive Hip Kit Club ephemera and phrase ephemera from the February kits and started to layer pieces over the same colour areas. In particular I loved the words in the phrase ephemera so I pulled out several of those that worked with my photo and added them around the layout.

I also spent some time fussy cutting rainbows from one of the patterned papers from the February kit and I also positioned those around the layout too. I then wanted to fill in some of the gaps between the embellishments so reached for smaller items: small ephemera hearts, enamel dots, adhesive brads and puffy stickers. Again I arranged these in colour order.

I added a navy border to my layout: it is quite subtle as you can only see it in a few places but I love that it adds an edge to my white background. I finished off with twiddles of gold thread.

Thank you so much for joining me today for this very colourful layout!

Happy scrapping
