Here - Using Up Scraps

Hello!  Well I'm making my way through my January Hip Kit, and I think I probably have about 4 layouts to go.

I made this layout with scraps of paper that were off cuts from other pages.  The result is probably my go-to design, which is one photo, layering and ink splatters.  The photo was taken my my husband, and is on the way to Dunedin (3.5 hours away from Queenstown) in a playground in Lawrence. It took us over 7 hours to get there, because of multiple toilet stops, food stops, breastfeeding baby stops, playground stops, and more food and nappy stops!  We made it eventually!  

I had pre-prepared the yellow misting on the background cardstock for a video about inking and splatters that I made for Artfull Crafts.  I added extra dark blue splatters.  You can watch that video on my YouTube Channel here.

The XOXO heart is cut out from a Dear Lizzy journalling cut apart sheet.

I coloured the "Here" word with my watercolour paints.

You can watch my process on my channel or below.

Thanks for looking.
