Hello Hip Kit Club friends! Tazhiana here with a layout featuring this week’s sketch and the All About You theme. I was super excited by the design of this sketch and couldn’t wait to play with the super fun, super Whimsical October kits.
I started my layout by cutting out some hexagons from one of the Whimsical patterned papers and adding it to the top and bottom of my page. Before I adhered the hexagons to the page, I added some mixed media using Pop Art Pink – a paint from this month’s Color Kit, Mustard Seed and Well Blue Me Down – both paints that were included in previous Color Kits. I then adhered the hexagons down and added some gold stitching for texture and contrast.
Next I worked on my photos – I printed the same photo twice, one in color and one in black and white, and it’s a photo of fellow scrapper, Tracey Fox and I when she came to visit my hometown! I thought I would use this photo to tell the story of being a paper crafter and how much I love this community. I used some of the journal cards in the Project Life kit as photo mats and then began embellishing using a flower I had fussy cut from one of the Whimsical papers. Next, I pulled out the floral embellishment pack that came in the Embellishment Kit and used some of the flowers and leaves to augment my cluster. Finally, I added some word banner strips that I fussy cut from a paper in the Main Kit.
For my title, I used ALL the alphas! I thought “Two Crafty Foxes” would be the perfect title for this page and the mixed alphas just added to the overall fun vibe of the page.
A few Whimsical puffy stickers completed the layout, and if you want to watch the whole process come together, I have a process video of the layout.
That’s it for me, friends! I hope you give the sketch a try and tell your own story all about you. Till next time, keep it crafty friends.
