Adventure | Missy Whidden

Hey there, friends!  Missy back with you today.  I’m beyond excited to share my first layout using the 2015 August Hip Kits!  Seriously, they are just amazing.  I know I say that about every kit each month, but these truly are!  It was hard to narrow down what to use first, but I decided on this white patterned paper with black grid lines from Studio Calico.  I applied some white gesso and used gelatos and spray inks to add some color to the background.  I knew right away that I wanted to create a banner using those acetate triangles from Pinkfresh Studio included in the Embellishment Kit…they are so fun!  I also used a lot of the Dear Lizzy washi tape roll.

I think these gold Thickers from the Main Kit are my favorite thing this month…oh my gosh!  I added this one in as my title on an angle and then worked in my journaling and several embellishments, including a flair button, washi tape, a Pinkfresh puffy sticker, some chipboard & sequins and even a little tag sticker from Heidi Swapp.  So many little doo dads this month!

Here’s a look at that fun washi tape.  I layered one of those fun rubber embellishments from Pinkfresh, a Heidi sticker label, some tangled thread and enamel dots & sequins.  You can also see a bit of the background ink and layers.

I stitched down the triangle banner…and my needle went through them very easily.  That cute gold heart is from the Freckled Fawn chipboard sheet.  I also used one of the Project Life cards as a layering piece here.

One more close up of the left side.  These colors are just so yummy!  That dotted vellum behind my photo is another favorite of mine this month 🙂
