Love this ♥ - July 2017 Hip Kit

Hi there friends.  I just want to share another page I made with the July Hip Kit.  This time I was inspired with a page made by Flora Monika Farkas where she used the greens and blues in the kit to create a monochromatic page.  I used a photo of my grand children playing in our garden.  Here is my page...I think I will attempt some more monochromatic pages...this is too cool.
 Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Dear Lizzy (Lovely Day), Amy Tan (On a Whim), Maggie Holmes (Chasing Dreams); Cardstock:  American Crafts; Wood Veneer: Hip Kit Exclusives (Summer Bliss); Acrylic word: Bella BLVD; Clip:  Bella BLVD; Epoxy embellishments: Hip Kit Exclusives;  Enamel dots: Hip Kit Exclusives; Enamel Hearts: Websters (Dream in Color); Buttons:  Hip Kit Exclusives; Die cuts:  Amy Tan (On a Whim), Vicky Boutin (tags); Embroidery Floss: DMC; Other:  Golden Rod Stickels; Border Punch: Fiskars.

Some close ups:
 I love the painted wood veneer that is part of the Hip Kit Exclusives this month...actually just about all the embellishments are exclusive to the Hip Kit.  I did quite a lot of fussy cutting to bring some black and white elements to this monochromatic colour scheme.

 The "Love this"was fussy cut from an Amy Tan paper.  A lot of stitching done to give some texture to the page.

 Some pretty wooden buttons and some of the wood veneer stars that I dressed with some Stickels.

 The tag behind the photo is a Vicky Boutin tag cut into half for the top and bottom of the photo.

 I really love this black and white patterned paper by Dear Lizzy Lovely Day.  I really adore the flowers and they really make a statement when used as embellishments.

 The gold also adds interest to the page.

I really enjoyed creating this page and the soft colours are pleasing to the eye...well my eyes anyway :-)
