I was inspired recently by a few of the online challenges and they really sparked my mojo again. This layout using the December Hip Kit was for the Hey little magpie challenge (to use numbers on your layout) and the Stick It Down single page sketch this month. I love using Facebook and Instagram to take daft selfies if I've got a spare few minutes.
I had some new starlight metallic paints for Christmas so I used them to create and L shape in the bottom left corner as per the sketch. I used this beautiful patterned paper designed by Irit Landgraf for Hip Kit.
I managed to use some older stash also as the chipboard heart and flowers were from an older Illustrated Faith collection. Most of the other embellishments were from the Crate Paper 'Good Vibes' collection.
The weather has been really dull here in the UK for the last few weeks making it a nightmare to photograph my layouts. I can't wait for the Spring and Summer months so its at least a little brighter.
I'm eagerly awaiting all the new releases as they are slowly being drip fed out by the manufacturers. I'm hoping for a good travel themed one to get my teeth in to after our trip to Egypt and Jordan later this month.
