Hip Kit Club Love You

Do you ever make a page and then look at it once it's all completed, and think, "why did I do that?" That's what happened with this layout... Overall it's totally fine!  But when I look at the details I wish I had showed some restraint.

My biggest problem seems to be gesso; when I start laying it on the page I end up using entirely too much and have way too big of a gesso area.

I should have held back and used the gesso only on the top 1/3 of the page, or not at all.  I was worried the Dazzlerz wouldn't show up enough on the navy background.  Hello?  Bright pink Dazzlerz will always show up against navy.  So to scale back the white gesso I added some Shimmerz paints which did not show up like I wanted.  Ugh.  Live and learn, right?

What I do love is the partially heat embossed veneer items.  I used Versamark and Ranger Super Fine Gold embossing powder to get that look, adding tangled thread for additional gold and texture on the page.  I also adore the exclusive Hip Kit Club stencil!  I flicked some Navy Color Shine and Gold Color Shine to finish the page.

Thanks for stopping by today!
