Here's the finished layout I created using the September Hip Kit-
I used mostly items from Crate's Notes and Things collection. I grabbed a few die cuts from the ephemera pack that came with the August kit, but the rest is from the September kit.
I thought the soft colors of the papers really worked well with the colors of the photo.
Love to add touched of gold to my layouts!
Here's the video-
The second layout I'll be sharing today was experimental also for me. I used the October Afternoon cut apart sheet that came with the July Hip Kit. I really like the vintage feel of October Afternoon, and I like their designs, but the colors are usually too primary or vintage for what I like to use on my pages. Here's the finished layout-
I applied a thin layer of gesso to the OA squares, thin so I could still see the design. Next I went over all the lines in the words and images with Micron pens in different sized nibs. It looked like this when I was finished-
Next I used my Peerless watercolors to paint the squares, keeping the shades similar to the original paper. And that was kinda it:) I printed my photos the same size, and used a simple grid design.
Thanks for visiting and I'll be back soon with more layouts and videos!
