Hello lovely Hip kit fans, Felicity here with some fun weekend inspiration for you using the September main kit 🙂
Lets be honest right now! This page, for Hip kits using the September kit, did not come together how I planned it too. Always the way, uh. I had the idea of using the squares from the ‘Turn the page’ paper and cutting them into small triangles. I wanted to scattered them with some punched out circles and have some shimmerz from the colour kit poking through.
I knew I want to keep the ‘jigsaw’ affect to one half of the page and have lots of white space to balance all the colour. I did that and was happy. UNTIL… tee hee
I then added my photo and created lots of layers. But I know now if i moved that photo to the top of the page and allow the follow more of ‘jigsaw’ pieces under neath to really flow and not be blocked by the photo, I think I would loved this a lot more.
Then me being me… tee hee.. I decided to try and back the page on the blue paper from the main kit, to add more depth. Instead I feel like made the page worse…Oopsie. So here it is, a page, I want to re-do, but yet a page full of creativity lessons and more inspiration for the next.So any time you feel like this, “I am not loving it” – I want you draw on the lessons and most importantly draw on the inspiration to create your next beautiful project 🙂
I absolutely loved the project life cards in the September Hip Kit, because I’ve had these photos of my eldest son, just ‘goofing’ about before school, that I knew they need to go in his project life album.
The perfect card with ‘school’ and all those stars through the kit, sure made it fun and easy to put this together.
Of course I added lots of ‘doodling’ and some shimmerz splatters as well. I thought the little bit of shimmerz also was a ‘trade mark’ for a school project life spread.
The bright colours on the cards meant that I used a a few black and white photos, so that i didnt ‘distract’ all those beautiful cards.
Lets not forget the exclusive alphas as well 🙂 Be sure to check out the process video as well!!
