Sweet as Sugar | Hip Kit Club | Mixed Media Monday

Wednesday 28 April 2021


Hi everyone, I have a new layout to share today for Hip Kit Club using the March Kits. You can find the March 2021 kits on the Hip Kit Club website.

Today is Mixed Media Monday so I have therefore created a mixed media background onto a sheet of white card. I was really inspired by the colours on one of the exclusive papers and decided to use those colours for my background. I wanted orange, pink and purple. The Color Kit contains three colours of Shimmerz Paint this month: Sweet Heart Vibes (pink), Mustard Seed Vibez (yellow) and Purple Peony Creameez (purple). I figured I could mix the pink and the yellow to create orange.

I firstly tore some strips of paper to go horizontally across my layout and roughly figure out where I wanted my mixed media. I then moved them out of the way and set about making my background. I mixed the pink and yellow paint to create orange and started with that on the left side, using the packaging technique and also added large drips and splatters. I then moved onto pink. I sprayed the Sweet Heart Vibez directly onto the layout and also added more colour using the packaging technique and I also created large drips and splatters. I then moved onto the purple. I applied this again using the packaging technique and also added splatters.

I picked out lots of the floral ephemera to match my paint colours and then arranged them colour on colours on top of my dry paint. I had two small black and white photos so tucked these in amongst the flowers. I added cute ephemera such as bunnies, a  bird and hearts. Some were chipboard items too and I also added some puffy stickers – I just love all the different textures.

I used a chipboard label as my title ‘sweet as sugar’ which I cut up and stuck under my title. I added my journaling and then added a few drops and splatters of black ink which finished off the layout really well.

I hope you have enjoyed this layout, it was super quick and easy and I love the result.

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
