Merry in the Snow | Frau Pony

Hello Everyone! Martina here today with a snowy and fun layout using some of my leftovers of the wonderful Hip Kit Club December Documented Kit.

I went through some of my childhood pictures lately and found this perfect swiss winter pic of me 🙂 – I thought, why not put this on a layout. And did.

To start with my process, I arranged everything I was planning to use.

Papers, Journaling Cards and Embellishment were left from my December Documented Kit, the December Color Kit, some Shimmerz paints that matched my color palette and – of course – some snowflakes cut using the HKC 12 Days of Giving Cutfile Day 8.

Since I planned to get some color onto that paper, I applied a thin layer of Gesso in the area I was focusing on.

For my first coloured layer, I sprayed some “well blue me down” Coloringz on the Gesso

and spread it out. I wasn’t aiming for a even result, so streaky and messy was totally ok with me.

For the next layer, I added some shimmering snowflakes using the Stencil and Dazzlers that came with the HKC 2018 December Color Kit.

To include some more colors of the picture, I added some Shimmers and Inklingz with the packaging technique.

I matted my picture with some of the Journaling Cards and pieces of Patterned Paper. To make it stand out more, & added some fun foam on the back of my pile of papers before glueing it on the layout for dimension.

Sometimes it takes more than a minute to decide on where the title, the journaling spot and all the embellishments should go. That’s why I keep them on their backing film, so I can shift them freely around until I like the arrangement.

The Pinkfresh Studio Enamel Dots were the perfect finishing touches, all I had to do was add a bit of journaling. As far as I remember, this was racing day at ski school and we had a “big after party” in the evening, where I first discovered the chicken Dance (which we actually danced the whole evening…)

i

That’s it for today.

Let me know what you’re doing with your “older” Kits! Are you keeping them in the storage? Are you stash-busting them? I’m looking forward to read about your strategies!
