Hello crafters far & wide…this week on the Hip Kit Blog we are sharing projects that document the furry friends, wild or otherwise, we might have in our lives. You will find a super mixture of techniques, subject matter & plethora of ideas, sure to spark your next crafty project!
My project, Cat On The Go! has been created using the gorgeous April 2016 kits! It documents finding our little black cat one year whilst on vacation, this little guy all alone in the world, decided to make us his forever family & tagged along for the rest of the vacation. The nine hour car trip home didn’t faze him at all, he sat on Cassidy’s lap, soaking in her loves & slept. He was born to eat, be loved & be a car trip cat 🙂
Take a look at the details!
I used a brayer to apply layers of yellow Shimmerz Mist to the Elle’s Studio paper, giving the page an overall bright, fun vibe. It was the perfect base for the rest of my elements!
A little extra diagonally placed splatter, balanced things nicely. Notice how the navy & black stars add much needed anchor points?
A selection of PL cards made up most of the layering underneath the photos. They were just the right size & added fun patterns & colors to the page. Carefully placed wooden accents, create a visual triangle, framing the photos.
The Amy Tangerine clear alphabet stickers coordinate so well with the doodled vibe of the heart paper & add black to the page without being overbearing!
The Pinkfresh Studio frame & acetate die cut sentiment, add super texture & interest to the clusters. I love how the Shimelle sticker strips are a quick way to incorporate pops of color, as well as adding secondary titles; they actually help tell the story.
