It's Coming Home | Hip Kit Club | Color Challenge

Sunday 25 July 2021


Hey everyone! Here is a new layout for Hip Kit Club using the June 2021 Kits. You can find the June kits on the website here: I’m also playing along with this week’s challenge which is a colour challenge: black, white & yellow.

The DT had two extra challenges: to scrap a celebration theme and to incorporate a circular, horizontal, vertical or diagonal design. I opted for circular.

For my celebration theme I decided to use photos of my boy celebrating England winning the Euro 2020 semi-final football match. I therefore decided my circular design would be a large football! I printed one using a google image which I then traced to get the rounded look of the ball. I painted the black parts with black acrylic paint and the lines too. I then added shading in some of the white areas using Copic markers. I think it turned out ok and looks quite spherical – I was worried it would look too flat.

I created my background out of black and white polka dot paper and a sheet of white card. I added the football and then my photos. I then began embellishing using all the yellow elements I could find in the kit. There were two sets of yellow alphas and some phrase Chipboards. I made my titles using those. I added two fabric bows, a chipboard tag and various bits of ephemera.

I made the little banner at the top with a triangle punch. I inked the edges to ensure they showed up a bit better and stuck them to the layout. I added black thread along the top and two little bows. Within the pennants I added the word GOAL in little yellow alphas that I outlined with a black fineliner pen.

I really like the result. It’s a bit different to what I would usually make and it was also good to document those football memories...even if we didn’t win the final!

Happy scrapping everyone
