Stitching and Mixed Media Fun! |Victoria Calvin


Hello friends! It’s Victoria and I am so excited to share my first design team project with you! I have been a long time fan of the Hip Kit Club and it is an honor to provide creative inspiration to this awesome community!

For this layout, I used the August 2018 Main Kit and Embellishment Kit. Every single element in this kit is absolutely stunning! To begin, I created a layered background using the Three Sides pattern paper from the Shine On Collection by Amy Tangerine (12×12 inches), the Flutter pattern paper from the Willow Lane Collection by Maggie Holmes (9×12 inches), and a piece of white Bazzill card stock (8×12 inches). Next, I added two photos (cut into circles using a circle punch) and a Maggie Holmes frame from the Willow Lane Collection.


Next, I created textured circle embellishments using modeling paste and items from the Hip Kit Club August 2018 Color Kit to include:  Shimmerz Coloringz Well Blue Me Down Mist, Inklingz Miner, Miner 49er Shimmering Watercolor and a stencil from the Pack Your Bags Collection by Carta Bella. To begin, using a scrap piece of paper, I applied modeling paste over the Pack Your Bags stencil. Once the modeling paste was dry, I covered the texture areas with the Well Blue Me Down mist and the Miner, Miner 49er watercolor paint. Lastly, I punched circles from the textured paper and layered them around the photos and the frame.


And because I like taking things up a notch, I stitched around the photos and the textured circle embellishments with black sewing floss. Wow, so much texture…I love it!

To complete the layout, I added die cuts, chipboard embellishments, and puffy shapes from the Maggie Holmes Willow Lane and the Amy Tangerine Shine On collections. Finally, I used the Miner, Miner 49er Shimming Watercolor paint to add a few sprinkles around the layout.

I hope you are inspired to stitch and use mixed media products on your next layout! Thanks so much for stopping by! Now you go and be creative!
