April 2012 Hip Kit… A Layout by Melanie Jarocki…

Hi Everyone! 

It is Melanie here today to share a layout that I created with our April Hip Kit.  I will tell you that  I totally loved creating my 8.5 x 11 layout earlier this month.  But, I guess I couldn’t stay away from my style too long. LOL!  Today I have a “totally true to Melanie-style” page to share with you.  My style tends to be quite linear and usually includes more than one photo.  I often mat the patterned paper, add some kind of decorative border, and some stitching here and there.


You can see that I added some zig zag stitching in different places around my layout to give it a little more definition and dimension.  I also tied the buttons off with baker’s twine.  This adds texture and gives them a nice finished look.


Below you can see that  I misted one of the Studio Calico Wood Veneer Frames with the Taxi Cab Yellow Mister Huey’s Mist.  Both of these products where included in our April Embellishment Add-On Kit.  My veneer frame was quite bright after misting it, so I swiped it with some light brown ink to tone it down just a bit.  The Crate Paper button inside the little frame was the perfect finishing touch for my page.LO-Photos-detail2

Thanks for visiting today :)   Make sure to come back tomorrow for our great Tutorial Tuesday video that is going to be featuring Mister Huey’s Mists and Masking  Techniques.  You definitely won’t want to miss it!

xo, Melanie
