Hello Everyone! Martina here with my very first Mixed Media Monday for the Hip Kit Club!
I had so much fun creating this Layout using Shimmerz from previous Color Kits (September 2018 and November 2018), Papers and Embellishments from HKC December Main Kit and December 2018 Embellishment Kit.
Of course I have also included Cut Files! I grabbed the snowflakes thet came with HKC 12 Days of Giving Cutfile Day 8 and filled a whole page with them before i let my Silhouette cut them. Like this, I created some kind of an overlay which I’ll be using for this Layout.
When its coming to Mixed Media, covering the page with a thin layer of Gesso is always a good idea. After I’ve done that, I added some of the Creameez on the paper and spreaded it out with a palet knife.
When I spread out the colors like this, they are usually dry in a really short amount of time. So i could add the Spritz without any drying time and spread it out as well.
To incorporate the black of the dress and the “stripey” theme that can be found on the picture, I added marks with 3 different black markers.
For a short moment, I have been thinking about changing my plans and keep this paper as a whole background paper.
But – finally, i sticked with my plan and added my snowflake cut file on top of that coloured paper. To add some more texture and also some nice tetails, I have framed the layout with my sewing machine.
I have matted and layered my picture with some tissue paper, december main kit papers and a paper from the printables, Kim Watson designed for Hip Kit Club.
To embellish the layout, I have used a left over cut file snowflake and a variety of other pink snowflakes, that came with the December Kits.
The little birdie was just a perfect little detail, that i had to add, since it has the color of my dress – and – the picture was made while we have been at the opera.
The Puffy Sticker – Title, journaling and some added sequins from the embelliskment kit were the last finishing touches for this layout.
I hope you are inspired to grab your colors and have some fun!
Have a wunderful day!
