Hey there, Hip Kit friends! Missy here. I’ve created one more layout using the 2015 February Hip Kits…my 6th one! I decided to use some of the kraft cardstock from the Cardstock Kit as my base for this one. I was in the mood to go bright and bold again, so I reached for the Calypso Teal Dylusions from the Color Kit. I sprayed some onto my paint tray and then used a wide paint brush to just brush it onto the paper in streaks. I used a deeper blue gelato and made some extra smudges. I used some of the vellum as well as a few patterned papers as layers and then added in a few embellishments around the layout.
Here’s a close-up of the layers. I used the lid to the Dylusions as a stamp to create those little circles. I also added some machine stitching.
I still had a few pieces of the wood veneer left, so I added this one here. I also mixed up my title by using the bright blue Heidi Swapp alphas and a word cut from my Cameo.
Here’s the bottom right corner. I really love how this part came together. I added some of the Dylusions and gelato here and then layered some vellum circles, a piece of the cut apart Heidi Swapp paper, a big pink circle from an MME paper, some Heidi Swapp washi tape and a Crate paper chipboard bird…so many different elements that just work together so nicely.
Isn’t this bright blue just gorgeous? I love that it adds such a bold pop of color and is very pretty mixed with the teal spray.
I can’t wait to get started with the March Kits…I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working my way through these February Kits. I hope you’ve been inspired! I just love seeing all of your work on our forum 🙂
Have a GREAT day!
