Hej Hip Kit Friends! Martina here with a sketch friday layout using the absoultely wonderful July 2019 Hip Kits.
I have a process video on my Youtube Channel for you : *just klick here*
The beautiful and very inspiring sketch for this week has been created by Jessica Winter:
As I have been challenged to work on a white background and to incooperate stitching, I started with a thin layer of clear Gesso on a sheet of white Bazzil Cardstock.
In the drying time of the Gesso, I have drawn a template for my stitching pattern on a piece of scrap paper. Like this a was able to poke my holes for the stitching without using a pencil on my Gessoed Cardstock.
After the (chain) stitching has been done, I painted some Lindy’s Magicals into the circle. I have been using Cotton Candy Pink Starburst ( March 2019 Color Kit) and Pink Ladies Pink Magical (April 2019 Color Kit). I tried to create an ombré effect with the color, so I tried to keep it darker in the center and lighter on the outside.
Some Splatters with the Tiffanylous Blue Starburst Spray helped me to incooperate the blues of the picture into the background.
To pick the circle theme up once again, I have cut my photo and the backing paper into circles. Some teared papers from the July 2019 Main and Cardstock Kits were used to create the base for the title.
Using the Pinkfresh Studio Puffy Alphas and some die cuts, as well as the absolutely stunning HKC Exclusive Die Cuts that Kim Watson designed, the embellishing of the page was really easy and fun to do.
I hope you are inspired to create something today!
