Two layouts | Terhi Koskinen

Hello there! It’s Terhi here with two layouts using May Hip Kits. I know I said last time that those would have been the last ones with May Kits, but life happens and here I am with another two. That’s actually one of the reasons why I adore Hip Kit Club Kits: Even when I’ve created over ten layouts and bunch of cards with one single kit, I still have so much of products left that I can create a few more. Hip Kits are huge, at least I think so.

The first layout today was inspired by the little lady in the picture. Even tough she’s dressing purple and turquoise, I wanted the layout look pink and yellow. And as the photo is shaped weirdly, I decided to use a lot of straight lines to calm the layout down, and added one circle shaped embellishment to catch your attention. That’s what I love the most, using tricks to swindle your eye 😉

For the background I chose to use yellow Paint Dabber from May Color Kit, and pink Paint Dabber from February Color Kit. It’s actually another thing I appreciate with Color Kits, you can collect a little storage of the products each month and use them together to create unique layouts and mixed media creations.

Below is a process video recorded while making this layout. Enjoy!

Here’s the second layout for today. Inspired by my silly, wonderful, goofy, handsome, funny and wonderful husband.

I wanted to create a masculine but light and playful layout and green Paint Dabber from May Color Kit was perfect way to start it. I simply pressed it against the white cardstock to create random circles here and there, the result reminds me of a stencil work but it’s way more loose. All papers are from May Kits, too, I used all grays and whites. And to highlight the picture, I grabbed the Chickaniddy Alphas from the May Project Life Kit and added some randomly to the background. That was fun! It gave a lot of interest, but dimension too!

And as I started with green, I wanted to continue with the same line – the ampersand is painted with green Paint Dabber too.

That’s it for May Kits! Next week I’m back with June layouts (and videos), can’t wait to show you what I created with June Color Kit! It will be so much fun, messy and colorful!

Thanks for popping in today!
