Hip Kit Club Jan 2017- Sketch Challenge-Inspired By The Movie THE CHOICE

Have any of you seen the movie THE CHOICE inspired by Nicholas Sparks book The Choice??? Oh my Gosh!! Ya’ll I cried! okay I cry watching every movie of his but I cried the UGLY cry. lol!! I won’t say anymore about the movie if you haven’t seen it but YOU MUST WATCH IT!!

Okay let take a look at this layout that was inspired by the movie!

So I used the goodies from American Crafts new line Hazelwood by Onecanoetwo and Pink Paislee new collection Moonstruck! they both are beautiful collections and I couldn’t wait to get started!

I went in with my Shimmerz spray in Smoke. I wanted to give the feeling of start dust falling off the moon. I feel like this really gave the layout a romantic or mystical feel. Judging by the photo, this is not a romantic or mystical photo but I do love these two to the moon and back! awww see what I did there.

I am also loving these rub on butterfly stickers from American Crafts! they are beautiful after applying them on a background. very pretty!

For my title, I wanted to use something minimal since I had a lot of colors and textures going on but I did want to use something with gold to incorporate with the gold on the top right corner of the layout. So I went with this timeless ephemera piece from the Pink Paislee collection and the Love sticker is from the American Crafts Hazelwood collection.

Hip Kit Club Jan 2017 Sketch Challenge- Happy Memories

Hey ya’ll!! I am back with another sketch challenge for the Hip Kit Club. This time I couldn’t wait to use that exclusive triangle paper that came in this months main kit. It was just screaming “use me!!” So I didn’t hold back, I went for it! Let’s take a closer look at the details of this layout.

Here is the Sketch that Kim Watson designed. Although its similar to my last layout, I love giving each sketch my own take on how I see it. That’s what I love most about sketches. It really gives you a foundation and you can alter it any way you like!

So I new right away that I wanted to do some mixed media. So I pulled out my water colors and used one of the pinkish orange colors. I use to love water colors as a kid and forgot how fun it was to mix colors and see them dance all over the paper when adding more water, so now as an adult I have that same appreciation for them. Funny how being a kid again can really allow you to escape the trap they call adulthood. lol!

For my title, I wanted to keep in simple but interesting. So I used this HAPPY from the exclusive ephemera pack from the Hip Kit Club. I also used the studio calico puffy letter stickers. I like using different colors and fonts when creating a title. I like to keep thing interesting!
