Best Advice | Kim Watson

Happy Saturday friends!

I hope your weekend has started off well & that you find time to grab a moment to get into your craft room. Today I am hoping my project might spark a little creativity in you. I am going to show you how to use the color kit add-on from the awesome August kits!

The color kit add-on includes a five pack of stencils, I custom designed to coordinate with the August kits. I took those stencils & using the Dylusions paint included in the kit & a sponge, started layering subtle color onto the background page. Using the triangle stencil as a doodle template added such great dimension to the background. I urge to to play around with offset layers like I did. It resulted in such a fun effect!

The fifth stencil is a sentiment which worked perfectly as my page title! Stitching a rough circle in black thread, added great emphasis, drawing ones eye to it. Something so simple, has such big impact!
@HipKitClub @KimWatson @pinkfreshstudio @americancrafts crate_paper @shopEvaliciousIn keeping with the diagonal page design, I added x2 obvious clusters, the top right one is a wonderful collage of aqua bits with highlights of gold & yellow. The wood veneer sentiment, I painted to match, is from the June kit.
