Hello everyone, I’m back with a new layout made for the Hip Kit Club International Scrapbook Day event. For this, I used the March 2021 kits. I wanted a color combo with yellow and purple so I selected the printed papers, Project Life cards and embellishments for my layout.
I start by coating the white cardstock with clear Gesso to prepare the background for the Mixed Media. I use Vibez Mustard seed yellow and Creameez Purple Peony Shimmerz from the March 2021 color kit. Using a piece of rodoid, I take ink and place it on my page, at the location I want. I mix the two inks a bit to create a bond. I make a small area on the left of my page with the same inks. I finish my background with splashes of yellow and purple ink then I add splashes of white Gesso diluted with a little water, to bring light and I dry one last time.
I continue with the arrangement of the elements of my page. I layered my photo with crumpled tracing paper for more texture and with several Project Life cards whose edges I have aged. I add die cuts flowers around it, keeping the colors yellow and purple. I cut the flower again so that it no longer has the white edge and so that it fits better with the others. I have the idea of adding purple striped print paper to the top and bottom of my page so I cut a strip of this paper and tear it in half to have a piece for the top and the bottom. I use the same striped paper under my photo for a little reminder. I add the cards then cardboard and I glue everything in the center of my area. I continue and I glue the flowers under and above my photo. I add Acetate Foiled Die Cuts flowers too.
For the title, I use the purple alphabet from the kit and create the title « Growing Up With My Brothers and Sisters ». Perfect for the theme of my photo. My children are getting closer and much more together. I insert this title between my photo and the pile of flowers on the left of my page. I therefore include chipboards, Puffy Stickers, stickers around my photo and around my title. I glue the different embellishments with or without 3D foam to add volume and shading. I add flowers at the top of my page which seems a little empty to me and I sew the pieces of paper with golden thread to make a reminder with the flowers in golden acetate !
I add the « Fun » stickers above the title and a « Bloom and Grow » die cuts. I also add a sentence in the center of my title and another above the « fun » stickers. I sewed a line of gold thread below my title and above my photo. And i add splash my page with gold and black inks.
