Best Day Ever - June Hip Kit

Hallo there.  I am still on a creative roll and playing with my June Hip Kit.  I shared some photos of Lukas taken while he was playing on their small holding.  Today I am sharing a page I made with some of those photos.  This page was published in the 50th edition of Scrap Affairs.

Supply list:  Patterned papers: Jen Hadfield, Paige Evans, Simple Stories; Cardstock: American Craft; Letter Stickers: Simple Stories; Wood Veneer: Jillibean Soup, Studio Calico; Chipboard: Celebr8, Heidi Swapp; Brads: Simple Stories; Buttons: Paige Evans; Enamel dots; Simple stories; Die cuts: Hip Kit Exclusives; Puffy Stickers: Hip Kit Exclusives; Twine: WeR Memory Keepers; Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Mustard Seed); Paint: LuminArte Twinkling H2O (sage); Other Mediums: Gesso; Dies: Quikutz Nesting flowers; Stencil: Celebr8 (Geared Up)

I used another cool sketch by Laura Whitaker:

Some close up of the details:
 I stenciled some gear images on the background through the Geared Up stencil by Celebr8.  The clock chipboard was first covered in gesso and then painted with Twinkling H20 in sage.

 Stars always work so well to embellish boy pages.

 The clear stickers by Simple stories add such a neat touch.

 I cut banners for this top cluster...and added the same embellishments that I used in the other clusters.

A mix of arrows and stars...and layering of embellishments.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  I hope that you found some inspiration here.♥
