Happy Monday Hip Kit peeps! It is Mix Media Monday here and we have some great projects for you from Missy, Corrie & Felicity using the 2018 January Hip Kits.
Hey, friends! Missy here, and I began this layout with the January Color Kit. I used the Echo Park floral stamp with the Picked Raspberry & Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks to create a big artsy-style background design. I stamped onto some white scrap paper first, then I spritzed the stamp with water. I also stamped the ink pad onto plastic packaging, added water and smooshed it down. I even splattered some pink Shimmerz sprays from previous Color Kits. I also used the Peacock Feathers Distress Ink from the November Color Kit. Once I was finished, I used various sized circle punches to create circles from it. This is a great way to get a mixed media look while keeping things neat and tidy. I also used the Distress Oxides on my background cardstock along with some clear gesso.
Here you can see the stamp’s detail on the circles. There are no rules on how to use a stamp, so if you want to get artsy with it, then go for it! I did a lot of machine stitching with gold thread and layered in some of the exclusive floral die cuts from the Main Kit. I fussy cut “Party Time” from a Project Life Card.
Here are more layers and more of the gorgeous Distress Oxide colors. I used some of the Dear Lizzy gold alphas from the Embellishment Kit for the other part of my title here. I did punch a few smaller circles from one of the Crate Paper Good Vibes papers.
I cut a piece from the Crate Paper Good Vibes cut apart sheet and used it as a layer behind my photos. I love how all these colors turned out!
Here’s one more close-up of the colors and texture. So much fun to make 🙂
I hope this inspires you and gives you some ideas on how to use the Color Kit. You can see more details and watch how I did this in my process video here.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and keep scrolling to see what Corrie created!
Hey guys! Corrie here. I decided to start my mixed media today with the beautiful flower stamp from the January 2018 color kit.
I used the stamp with embossing powder from a previous color kit to create a cool resist background and the the Distress Oxide inks to help show off the image.
I love how the flowers look coming through the ink. And because the black word sticker did not work with my background I painted the “sweet” with blue paint.
And here is a video showing what all I did for this page!
Thanks for stopping by!
