Hi everyone, it’s Niki here today and I have a new layout featuring one of the very beautiful cut files from the August Downloads. I have used the Dream Catcher, which is actually a freebie. I have cut it twice from patterned paper, one bigger than the other. I’ve backed the Dream Catchers with another patterned paper.
I’ve totally in love with the soft colour tones in the August kits, which is what I have used for this layout.
Before attaching my Dream Catchers to my layout, I marked their position with a pencil and then added some mixed media underneath where my Dream Catchers would sit. I used the Ramblin’ Rose Pink Lindy’s Magical from the August Color Kit mixed with some water and applied this using the packaging technique. I also added splatters. I then also added splatters in Tea Pot Purple, which is another Magical powder that is in the August Color Kit.
I then added my Dream Catchers to my layout. I also stitched on some stars onto the background. I punched some stars from the beautiful blue star paper from the Paige Evans Truly Grateful and I used these as a guide for my stitched silver stars.
I also stitched through that wood veneer circle with the holes to create a heart. I used one strand of silver thread and I cross stitched through all the rows. I also stitched around the outside of the heart – it is so pretty!
I added a title using the Paige Evans Thickers as well as the Pinkfresh Studio Office Hours letters. I fussy cut some houses and some more stars and finished off with some sequins. You can find all the August Hip Kits on the Hip Kit Club website – head over there to pick up yours!
I hope you have enjoyed my layout and I have put together a process video for this one too which you can view below.
Happy scrapping xxx
