Retro Hip Magazine | Faith and Scrap Projects

I’ve been so blessed by the opportunity to design for Retro Hip Magazine, and I’m just in awe of the amazing things that my friend Andrea at Retro Hip Mama is doing inside those amazing pages! If you haven’t gotten yourself an issue yet, you are desperately missing out!

This pretty layered piece is inside the Faith section, and I can’t wait for you to see it!

And this layout is for the On Trend section of the magazine, and it was such a blast! You don’t want to miss the other ladies’ projects alongside mine!

New Beginnings | Art Journal Spread

New Beginnings Art Journal Spread using Maggie Holmes Florals - Lydia Cost

There’s a lot of real heart that goes into the pages of my art journal, and sometimes I don’t give this unsuspecting little book enough attention. When I creak open its pages after a long time away, I find days of struggles melt into the act of layering all sorts of mediums and paints onto these pages. It’s a wide open space to say everything I need.

With a little help from a pretty paper from the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams Collection, I fussy-cut a million little florals and leaves.  I almost always work with florals in my art journal because they just melt delicately into any medium I splash on the background.

These florals were backed with a light pink color, so I knew I’d be overlaying my background blues and teals with some pink to help the florals nestle.
