Hi Creative Friends!!! I’m happy to see you again today for a new layout for the Hip Kit Club DT highlighting the October 2021 Hip kits. I started by creating a leaf background with the help of the exclusive « Wreath Leaves » cut file from October 2021. So I selected a leaf that I multiplied and arranged in such a way as to fill a 12×12 watercolor paper to create this leaf background that I wanted.
I then used a white cardstock that I coated with clear Gesso and then I made a large area of Nuvo Mica Mist Pecan Peach ink from the color kit in the center of the cardstock and on a few edges. I then glued the background of the leaves directly on the cardstock. I then added the same ink on the leaf background, here and there, to add a little more color and for the leaf background to blend into the décor.
I tore a strip in the paper « Gimme Some Pie » which I then glued on the background of my page to attenuate a little the leaf side of the background. With a border perforator, I made 2 strips in the « Harvest Wishes » paper that I glued to the center of the strip and then I sewed everything with golden thread.
All I had to do was add the photo and decorate everything. I used the Chipboard Nested Frames that I cross-checked and inferred under the photo to bring volume. I then added on either side of the photo of Die Cuts Floral, Wood Veneer, Chipboard Phrases and Tags, Die Cuts Mixed. Only exclusives of the October kits just superb!
I ended up adding a text pattern with a stamp from my reserve here and there and splashes of black ink to bring contrast.

I hope you enjoyed this layout that I loved making with this custom background.
Thank you for stopping by and I wish you a great creative day.
See you soon…
