Hello friends! Today I’m sharing a layout that I created using the April 2019 Hip Kit. I created this layout for sketch Friday over on the Hip Kit Club Group FB page. I was challenged to use the sketch, use a white background, and add lots of layers and texture to a Mother’s Day themed project.
Here is the sketch:
This is my favorite photo of my mother and I (and my sister), so I decided to document it. On a piece of white cardstock, I added some texture circles directly to the cardstock. I created circle stencils that I stuck to the cardstock. Then I used the HKC exclusive Paige Evans stencil, and texture paste (which I colored with blue shimmez). Once dry, I used half of the beautiful Paige Evans pattern paper for my background. I machine stitched through the rays of the pattern paper, continuing my stitching all the way across the white cardstock to create even more texture. I also hand stitched 3 circles to add another layer of texture.
I backed my photo with another of Paige Evan’s pattern paper and a doily. I adhered the photo so to my layout.
Since the sketch has lots of circles arranged in a diagonal, I used my circle dies to die cut circles from the various papers in the kit. I kept the circles color coordinated with the colors of the pattern paper. I arranged them across the layout, being mindful of the sizes and colors.
I embellished some of the circles. I also embellished the bottom left corner of the photo with a few flowers. I fussy cut my title from a Paige Evans pattern paper, and I love how it echos how I feel about my mom.
I love how my layout turned out, and I’m so happy that I’ll have this photo in my album.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Don’t forget to stop by the HKC Group FB page for sketch details, and don’t forget to stop by the HKC website to check out the amazing kits.
