It’s another Sketch Friday and today we are working with a gorgeous sketch designed by our fellow design team member Bea. We have many design team members working with this fun sketch. Zinia and Jessica are sharing their pages here, Dona, Tanya and Lorilei will share their beautiful creations in the Hip Kit Club Members Forum facebook group and of course Corrie will share her page on the Hip Kits facebook page. Make sure to check them all out to see all the different interpretations of our sketch.
Hello Hip Kits fans! Zinia here and today I’m using this beautiful sketch by Bea to create a layout with my September Hip Kits.
I really loved the overall design of the sketch so I decided to follow it as is. The only major edit I did was that instead of hears I used flowers. I’m really obsessed with this floral paper so I couldn’t really resist using it on yet another project.
I fussy cut a bunch of flowers in different sizes and created two clusters next to my photos. As I was pulling out the embellishments to see what else I want to use, I found these adorable paperplanes in the Turn the Page ephemera pack. I decided to stick one with each cluster and draw some dashed lines behind it to connect them with the rest of the page.
I really love that extra whimsical tone they give to the page. For my title I used the beautiful glitter thickers by Shimelle and wrote my journaling right underneath that.
So that’s it from me, make sure to check the Hip Kits facebook group and page for even more inspiration from my fellow design team members. Now keep reading to see all the details about Jessica’s interpretation of the sketch.
Hey there! I hope you already feel inspired – I’m sure you do, seeing all the beautiful pictures Zinia showed above. Here’s my clean and simple interpretation for today, using the awesome October Kits for the first time:
As you can see, I went for a clean but bold look. I love the October kit’s colors – and because I have a lot of mint and blue in my room, it was a perfect chance to use up all the pretty shades of blue and navy and indigo – combining it with black and gold it really gives a monochromatic feel to my page (also because of my pictures) – and I noticed I have never done a monochromatic page before. I should try this more often.
I decided to use the color kit paints for this month and painted behind my pictures to frame them better, I love both colors and I wanted to showcase the boldness of their effect instead of just little details as I would usually do it with splatters or the like – so that’s why I went for color frames. To bring the both pictures together, I used the Dear Lizzy Star Gazer paper for both – this wraps the page up and unites both pictures in terms of context.
What I love about these colors is that they all come from the same family, but are different in shade. This makes a page a lot more interesting when focusing on only a few colors; blue and yellow in my case.
The pops of mint green were just perfect for this page as I find it usually a tad hard to combine yellow and blue – but with mint green it seems like a no brainer. And indeed, I think it took me only about ten minutes to put this page together: Another advantage when you use a sketch! All you have to do is deciding what embellishments to use for the specific positions.
Some people have noticed that I add embellishments and stickers directly to my photos – true! I often do that, have you tried, too? I know that some people are scared to cover up something in their beautiful photos – but really, there was just a blanket and it seemed too empty. Sometimes this little extra is needed to wrap up the page.
I hope you feel inspired! Check out what the other talented girls created on Facebook!
