I LOVE Mixed Media Monday on the Hip Kit Club Blog! The Color Kits that Kimberly puts together are always fun and colorful and the October 2017 Color Kit is no exception! This month we received sheets of 12×12 Cold Pressed Watercolor paper and I was super excited to use it! I used all 3 Shimmerz included in the kit as well, Mango Tango, Lapis Dance and Old Yeller. I spritzed, painted and puddled the paints multiple times. To get the bright bold colors I let the layers dry in between so they would intensify. I added a bit of my Shimmerz Heidi Ho Blue to bring in the brighter blue from my photo! Once the paper had dried completely I added some vertical machine stitching and some texture paste through a stencil. I used the gorgeous Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary Ephemera from the Oct. 2017 Main Hip Kit and the Pinkfresh Studio Escape the Ordinary Studio Puffs from the Oct. 2017 Embellishment Kit to decorate the page!
The Pinkfresh butterflies are gorgeous with their gold wings! I love that the ephemera goes so beautifully with a mixed media layout as well as a clean layout!
All the color!!
