Hello crafty friends! You probably heard my amazing news. I’m one of the newest Hip Kit Club Design Team members ! Yes I am 😀 Today I’m sharing my latest project and a fun technique for a super pretty background.
What’s a Moodboard?
Every month, one of our talented HIP KIT CLUB Designers make a colourful board to inspire our creations. Here’s what sweet Sophie Delorme designed for September. If you’ve followed me for a bit, you know how much I love the minty, aqua, seafoam hues and of course I was smitten with Sophie’s creation.
Check out those beautiful paint pots and sea glass hanger! Gorgeous right?! These are the two items that most inspired my layout.
I used simple circle punches to make my own cloud stencil and used the Nuvo Hybrid Inks that were part of the HIP KIT CLUB April Colour Kit. You can shop at that link, it’s still in stock! Lemoncello, by Catherine Pooler is part of the HIP KIT CLUB August Colour Kit. You can shop that link too.
Simply use your circle punches to make various sized circles. Tape them to a strip of paper 12″ long. Vary the size and height for best effect. To add even more variance to your colourful cloudy sky, make a spare that you flip over and stencil the opposite side too.As I stenciled, changing colours in every row, I left a little white space above each cloud so it would look the the sun was shining there.
Here’s a few close ups of the finished layout.
Gold stitching and shaker pockets add a nice bit of texture.
I actually changed the colours of the unicorn by cutting off the tail, horn and mane and replacing them with colours from the rainbow pocket card. Easy peasy and now she matches perfectly. Kim Watson designed the perfect cut file for my photos of my friend Nadine and her daughter. They enjoy the outdoors together and are always up to something fun. Yes, it’s definitely in the genes!
Thanks so much for coming by
Have a great week ! 💛 Kelly
