Hello Hip Kit Friends !
It’s Sophie here and I have a beautiful layout and my step by step process to share for Mixed Media Monday !
Everything you will see on this page comes from the October 2021 kits.
The design team prompt today is to incorporate border punches on our project.
I focussed on the Nuvo Auburn Pearl Crystal Drops from the October Color kit for my page.
I started by creating horizontal lines with a washi tape from my stash and used it as a mask on thick white cardstock.
Then, I applied the Nuvo Crystal Drop between the washi lines and scraped it with a palette knife. I let it dry, and removed the washi tape.
It let me with very shimmery auburn horizontal lines and those were the starting point of my design. I watered down the Nuvo Crystal drops to add splatters to the background. I also used the Nuvo Pecan Peach Mica Mist for that purpose.
I selected different HKC Exclusive Sweater Weather patterned papers from the October Paper kit and used a few punches from my stash to cut scalloped borders out of them. I also used a few branding strips and a cardstock from the October Cardstock kit.
I placed the borders in between the Nuvo Drops lines in a diagonal design as shown here:
I stitched each border with matching thread for a little something extra !
I placed my photo in the center of the paper strips, adding tissue paper and adhesive foam behind it.
I fussy cut beautiful florals out of the HKC Exclusive Sweater Weather Pumpkin Spice Paper (October Paper kit) and created two clusters of embellishments around my photo. I also added gorgeous pumpkins from the Sweater Weather Ephemera pack (October Main kit).
I also used numerous Clear Mini Phrase Stickers (Pocket Life kit) that I sticked down on the Nuvo Drops lines.
Finally, I printed my journaling in navy blue on velum and cut it into strips that I placed in between the scalloped borders.
Here are more close-ups:
Very different, non messy mixed media today ! It doesn’t have to be all over the place to make it a beautiful addition to a project!
I hope you felt inspired by this page today. The October kits, all exclusive, are just SO gorgeous ! They are still available on the website. Make sure you get your hands on them if you didn’t yet !!
Thank you for stopping by !
