Marvellous Mixed Media by Paige Evans

Today I am excited to share with you, a gorgeous page by guest designer, Paige Evans, featuring the stencil she designed exclusively for our April Hip kits!

Find below, Paige’s creative process:

I started by scraping white modelling paste through the stencil in each quadrant of a 12×12 piece of thick white cardstock and set it aside to dry for a few minutes.

Next I pooled water on top of each section and then dropped in the three Lindy’s Stamp Gang – Magicals – Powder Watercolors. They’re seriously magical! They look white but once you activate the powder with water they turn all kinds of colorful and fun. The April kits include pink, orange, and blue colors and then I grabbed some gold and yellow from my stash for the final section.

Once all of the mixed media dried I found a photo of my kids in their grandparent’s pool last summer to place on the blue section. I love how the colors pop!

Time to embellish! I pulled from the floral die cuts, ephemera die cuts, and the chipboard stickers to decorate color-on-color in each quadrant. I wrote a sentence of journaling with a white pen at the bottom of the photo to finish. This layout was actually super quick & easy to create with the help of the stencil, powders, and color-on-color technique!

I hope this layout inspires you to try this technique using the stencil I designed for the April Hip Kit Club color kit. Be sure to check out all their awesome kits because they really are so well designed!

We are so happy to have you guest design with us Paige!

Thank you!
