Beautiful / Hip Kit Club

Happy Wednesday!  I have a new layout to share for Hip Kit Club today :)  I used the 2019 February Hip Kits to create a soft floral page.  I began with one of this month's FREE Subscriber cut files.  I cut it on white cardstock and then I coated it with white gesso.  I wanted to add color to it, so I used the three Art Alchemy Opal Magic Paints from the Color Kit.  I sprayed some water down first and then dabbed on some paint and let it run and blend.  These paints are so cool because each color has a shimmer of another color in it!  I used some Carta Bella papers and embellishments as well.

The kits also have a lot of the Pinkfresh Studio Joyful Day collection.  My title is from one the PFS puffy sticker sheets.  I love the colors and pretty font.  Here you can see the soft colors of the opal paints.  I did lots of fussy cutting with some of the Carta Bella floral papers.

My pool photo matched the teal paint so perfectly, so I had to use it!  I added a few sentiment stickers here on the right side.  The pink one is from Crate Paper, and the others are from Pinkfresh Studio.

I created lots of dimension by adding some adhesive foam under my photo.  I love the depth and shadowing here.  Layers are fun to create because they really do make your page pop!

These Carta Bella flowers are so pretty!  I couldn't resist fussy cutting them out to layer around the photo.  I tucked in some yellow thread for an extra pop of color and texture.  I added in a few Pinkfresh stickers here as well.

I created a cluster in the upper right corner of the cut file using more of the Carta Bella flowers as well as a CB die cut and Chipboard Sticker.  The "enjoy today" stickers is from Pinkfresh Studio.

I used another Carta Bella paper as the background.  I coated a lot of it with white gesso to blend out some of the stripes.  I used the same Opal Magic Paints to create some color behind the cut file.  I also pulled in some Shimmerz Paints from previous Color Kits.  I like the way the background color pops through the holes in the cut file.

Here are a few more shots of the details :)

I really enjoyed making this...I hope it gives you some fun ideas to try on your next layout.  Let me know if you try out those Opal Magic Paints!
