Welcome back to the Hip Kit Club blog. Today I was challenged by the team to create a layout using the Create paper All Heart stamp set and chipboard stickers. These are found in the May Hip Kits and are all about positivity, self worth and motivation.
When I saw these stamps I thought that I would try to create my own background. It was fun to do and the result meant I had a one of a kind patterned paper that added a unique design element to my layout.
To create this background with the stamps I used an acrylic block and adding one stamp at a time I worked my way around the page. I started with the larger stamps and I knew I could fill in all the little spots with the tiny stamps which are so cute!
Using the Lindy’s stamp gang magical shaker powders that came in May’s colour kit I added water and moved the individual colours around the centre of the page ensuring that I was blending the colours as I went. I used gesso on this section before applying the magical’s as I knew I wanted to add a lot of water to create the effect I was after.
I then began creating my cluster in the centre of the page making sure I was featuring the chipboard elements. Although this created lots of dimension on the page I feel it came together well and did not detract from the photos.
If you would like to see how this layout came together head on over to my YouTube channel where I created a process video that takes you through creating this layout step by step.
I hope this layout has inspired you to use your stamps, create your own unique background and have fun with some chipboard stickers. Make sure you stop by the Hip Kit Club and check out the May kits and consider joining the beautiful Hip Kit Club family.
