Sweet Sunshine / Hip Kit Club

Happy Thursday, friends!  I'm sharing a new layout for Hip Kit Club today :)  This is my first page featuring the 2020 September Hip Kits.  They are full of fall goodness!  Lots of the Crate Paper Marigold and Pinkfresh Studio Days of Splendor pretty.  I don't have a lot of typical Fall photos since I live in Florida, so I have to make our outdoor photos during the Fall months work :)

I used this gorgeous teal cardstock for a background.  I added a sliver of a diagonal striped patterned paper over on the left and then smudged down a bunch of white gesso.  I added a hint of color over the gesso using the Lindy's Gang Clam Bake Beige Powder.  It dries very light over white gesso.  I layered a few patterned papers behind the photo and went crazy with cute embellishments :)

These deer are SOOOOO cute!  I used one from the Crate Paper Chipboard Stickers, I fussy cut one from a patterend paper and then one from the Crate Paper sticker book.  I also used a cute little squirrel.  I love how the deer are looking at the photo.  I wanted them to have something to stand on, so I machine stitched them a little spot under their feet :)  I popped up a few of them to create some dimension.
I layered in a fussy cut flower here (from a Pocket Life card), a few of the gold puffy Thickers and some cute camera stickers.  I absolutely love the combo of the gold on top of the teal beautiful!
I fussy cut a few of the large vellum flowers (Amy Tangerine) to use as layers under the photo.  Here you can see the effect of the gesso.  I splattered some gold Jen Hadfield Gold Glitter Spray as well (from an older kit).
I tucked in some tangled pink thread here...I love the touches of pink scattered around the page.  The white splatters are white acrylic paint.  I just watered it down a touch and used a brush to splatter.
I tucked in a few flowers here...the cluster is a Jen Hadfield sticker, and the circle is from Pinkfresh Studio.  I love combining different products from different brands like this!
I think the white splatters look like snow, but I used them on a Fall page anyway...haha.  I love how the white looks on the darker background...always so striking.

Here you can see the dimension from the adhesive foam behind some of the animals.

I love this Sweet sticker...perfect for a title.  I love how it angles up, and the font is so pretty. 

These cute cameras are clear stickers, so I adhered them to white cardstock first and then cut them out.  This way the background doesn't interfere with the colors.

One more just because the deer are so adorable :)

I hope this inspires you today...the September Hip Kits are just beautiful.  I had fun getting out of my normal comfort zone and creating this page.  Usually I'm all about rainbows and summer, but this was fun to make to change things up a bit!

Here's my process video:

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I'll see you again tomorrow with another layout and video!
