Hello everyone. Friday is usually everyone’s favourite day in the whole week 😀 It’s also a sketch day in our HKC little world. Elsie and Anna will be sharing their projects based by this fantastic sketch designed by Jung Ashang here on the blog and Tanya, Terhi and Michelle will inspire you in the challenge thread on Hip Kit Club Members Forum. This is how the sketch looks like:
And now it’s Anna’s turn to share her interpretation.
Hello HKC fans. I am here today to show you how the sketch inspired me to make a page with all the fantastic goodies from October kits. It’s based on grid design and it’s one of my favourites so it was so easy to create with this sketch.
October kits are filled with the goodies from “Escape the ordinary” collection by Pinkfresh Studio. Everything matches together perfectly. This collection has travel / adveture / outdoors mood so I chose two pictures from one of our trips to Slovakia. We were visiting mountains and my daughter was like 4 years old then. But despite the young age she really enjoyed discovering peaks.
Paper from Main Kit from “Escape the ordinary” became my background. I like those arrows and I wanted to duplicate them in the upper side of the layout too. I mixed navy, grey and mustard yellow with a little bit of coral color. Grey cardstock from Cardstock Kit was a perfect match.
I embellished my page using puffy stickers, chipboard stickers and ephemeras. They are all from the same colelction as papers and you can find them in Main Kit and Embellishment Kit.
I really like this exclusive alpha stickers set that was included into the Main Kit. It has this perfect shade of navy.
That’s all from me today. Check what Elsie has made for you.
Hey everyone! I love working with sketches, they’re a really fun and easy way to create pages when your mojo might be lacking! I love the sketch that Jung designed, but it doesn’t necessarily suit my style of scrapbooking, so what I did was slightly deconstruct the sketch to suit me! Here’s how I did it…
I love the way the main design elements in the sketch flow on a diagonal, so I started by drawing and stitching some clouds in that gorgeous blue patterned paper from the Dear Lizzy ‘Stargazer’ collection. I designed the clouds so they would be clustered at the bottom and top of my page, like the sketch shows.
I also loved the sketch’s grid design, but I didn’t follow it’s uniform pattern. Like the sketch I used two pictures but instead of having a third square, I created a giant moon which I tucked the photos next to. Although the proportions and positioning of this deconstructed grid is quite different from the sketch, this design wouldn’t have been something I thought of doing without the sketch giving me the idea!
I love the giant chipboard words from the Embellishment Kit, and this sketch had a large title which was perfect! But it was way too big to fit by my photo/moon cluster, so I ended up gluing it to the bottom of the page.
To finish off the page I fussy-cut loads of the flowers from the Jen Hadfield ‘Gatherings’ paper and also a flower cluster from one of the exclusive Project Life cards.
I love the combination of the soft pink colour with the dark blue, it’s not a combination I’ve tried before, but I’m so happy with the way this page turned out! Thanks Jung for the inspiring sketch!
