HOT | Hip Kit Club | Mixed Media Monday

Wednesday 8 September 2021


Hi everyone! Here is my latest layout for Hip Kit Club. Today is Mixed Media Monday and I am using the August kits. You can find the August kits on the website here:

I have also used an exclusive cut file, which will soon be added to the August Downloads tabs. At the time of writing this the August cut files haven’t made it onto the website yet, but they will be up very soon and are worth the wait!

I started off with ink pads from the August Color Kit. I used the pink one and the yellowF one. There wasn’t an orange so I grabbed one from my stash that I got in a previous Color Kit. I created a blended area of the three colours in the middle of a sheet of white cardstock. I used ink applicator sponges to do this. I then used the Simple Stories stencil from the August Color Kit to stencil over the top. I used the same ink colours but just pressed hard through the stencil. The result is a tone on tone stenciled look!

I cut the HOT cut file twice: once in white and once in Roselle card from the August Cardstock Kit. I stuck the together, slightly offsetting them so I ended up with a shadow effect. I added a circular photo to the centre of the O. I placed the cut file over the mixed media colours in the middle of the layout and it looked great!

I then added a few colour-on-colour embellishments: flowers from the Vicki Boutin sticker sheet, chipboard from Simple Stories Sunkissed and a couple of labels. I also added some black stars to make the layout have extra impact.

Around the edges of the layout I added lots of tiny gold circle stickers from the Vicki Boutin sticker sheet. I also added splatters of ink in the same colours. I did this by putting the ink onto a kraft sheet, adding water and then using a paintbrush to splatter.

I finished off with my journaling and a few splatters of black ink. I love how this turned out!

Thank you so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
