Happy Saturday friends!!
Kim here, with a new page using the gorgeousMay Hip kit & add-ons! Inspired by the Evalicious journal cards…I designed a graphic feel page with pops of bright colors on a neutral black & white spotted background!

I am so thrilled with how this page turned out. I am generally nervous about mixed media, not wanting to mess my page up with my clumsy attempts at adding paint & ink but this time it actually worked. I think the smaller stencils in the Color Kit teamed with daubers is what did the trick & I love how the mixed media looked under the vellum layer.
Making the most of the May Color Kit & stencils…I started by adding painted texture to my page, layering the stencils using the yellow & green paint daubers, I added both solid colors & doodled outlines.
I then created interesting, layered clusters around the page. Trimming down the red Evalicious journal card made a fabulous sentiment tag. As did her cute puffy stickers layered onto a circle label with a tiny stamped sentiment. The stamp set which has loads of very small sentiments & accents words comes in the May Color Kit too. I am finding them perfect for a reluctant stamper like myself. They add super texture & interest to the page.
The rest of the journal card became a label, layered with green one, a wood veneer accent & stamped images, I created a pretty cluster in the bottom right corner too.
Using my trusty typewriter, I journaled onto a piece of trimmed Chickaniddy paper, stamped with a few images to make it more interesting.
Yet more evidence of an amazingly well thought out kit from Hip Kits. The perfect mixture of patterned papers, accents & embellishments, make designing scrapbook pages like this one a breeze. Make sure to secure your July kits. they are almost sold out.
Enjoy your weekend friends!
