Today I’m sharing a layout of my daughter dressed as Frida Kahlo for Halloween this year. When we were trying to figure out her costume this year, I told her to think about some inspiring women. This girl loves art, so when I suggested Frida, she was all for it!
I thought the colors, florals, and ephemera of the Hip Kit Club October kit was perfect for a Frida layout. I was challenged to use the Main Kit, and add in some fussy cutting and layered ephemera. I am using the October 2018 Main Kit.
First I started off by fussy cutting all the hexagons from the Paige Evans paper. I used one of the hexagons as a template, and cut out a few more from the other pattern paper in the kit as well. I ended up with way more hexagons than I needed, so I decided to layer them, and stitch down the middle, as I have done previously with other shapes.
Next, I decided to paint some black stripes onto a piece of white cardstock. I’ve always wanted to try this, as I’ve been inspired by other scrapbookers like Paige Evans, Missy Whidden, and Jana McCarthy, and I thought if not on a Frida layout, then when?! LOL!
Next, I added my photos, a title, some journaling, and a few bits of ephemera.
I have to admit that the 3 tubes of paint and the tiny paint brush is from the Paige Evans puffy sticker sheet included in the October 2018 Project Life kit. They were too too perfect for a Frida layout that I couldn’t resist!
I added some splatter, and a few hand doodled stars to finish my layout.
I love love love how this layout turned out, and I hope you do too!
