Hey Kitty / Hip Kit Club

Hello again...I'm back!  I have another layout to share for the Hip Kit Club using the 2016 February Hip Kits!  I can't get enough of always, they are stunning.  I used Kim Watson's hexagon cut file as the basis of my design. I shrunk it down and cut a few of them.  I used one of my favorite techniques and backed lots of the open spaces of the cut file with patterned papers and Project Life Cards.  I also used a hexagon punch to create more shapes to go around the larger cut files.

I used white gesso on top of the smaller hexagons and background before adding spray inks and gelato.  I also machine stitched around the cut files and then added stickers and tangled thread around the layout.

I couldn't resist scrapping these cute picture of Paige playing with the cat.  She used to love trying to catch and squeeze his tail...haha. 

So much detail going on here...I stitched through those blue circle Thickers, which I love!  The color is so pretty.  I used some of the Amy Tan and Dear Lizzy stickers here as well as one of the clear Maggie Holmes stickers.  I love how the mixed media looks blended so nicely on top of the gesso.

I need to use my hexagon punch more!  I love how they look with their sides all matched a honeycomb.  I added some pop dots under the yellow & white arrow for dimension and used one of the Shimelle chipboard pieces, a black heart Thicker and two more stickers from Amy and Lizzy :)

Tangled of my faves!  I wanted a pop of pink in this spot, so the thread did the trick.

Aren't these Thickers beautiful?  That bright pink and gold striped piece is actually the washi tape from one of last month's kit.  I stuck it on some white cardstock and then cut it out just like I would patterned paper.

Here's my process video if you'd like to see how this page came together.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Thursday!
