Do you have a hippie spirit?
For the first time since I’ve been selling my designs at The Digichick, I have participated in The Hatchery, the quarterly Mix & Match collection from The Digichick Designers. I didn’t know where I was going to go with the colours, and I made my solid papers first. While I was working on those, I started to have the idea to create a hippie/boho themed collection, and so ‘Hippie Spirit’ was born.
I’m sure you know the hippies from the sixties… members of a liberal counterculture, a youth movement that started in the United States and United Kingdom during the mid-1960s and spread to other countries around the world (source: Wikipedia).
This collection though is all about the ‘modern’ hippie and I found this description of the modern hippie (I couldn’t say it any better):
Modern hippies like organic food, they care about the earth and its inhabitants, they recycle and support companies that operate consciously and sustainably. Modern hippies have a vibe that is similar to the original hippies – relaxed, accepting and peaceful. Their free spirits prefer to go with the flow instead of swim upstream. All in all, they are nice people to be around. The modern hippie hasn’t abandoned the desire for more peace and love in the world, but it’s pursued in a slightly different way. The modern hippie is supremely focused on cultivating inner peace. This is because they know that these things are contagious, and if you’re peaceful inside, then the person sitting next to you gets to benefit from the calm spirit that you emanate. The hippie spirit is alive and well with the original hippies still leading the way for all of us who will never stop trying to make our planet more peaceful, loving and green. – Source: Kimberly Kingsley – Modern Hippie: An Intuitive Journey Toward a Free-Spirited Life
So all that information became the main inspiration for my ‘Hippie Spirit Collection’. It is filled with tons of papers and elements in bright and happy colours and patterns and a bit of boho chic. Finish up those pages with a touch of paint and a few whimsical doodles… Embrace all the peace and love in your heart… Scrap, art journal and create… express those positive vibes and let your spirit soar!

Add an instant touch of paint to your digital scrapbooking or art journaling pages with this gorgeous crafted pack of paint. The paint strokes were created by me, using various materials like ink, watercolour and acrylic paint. They were then scanned and edited at the highest quality.
Included in this pack are 12 large paint strokes, circles and other painted things. You will receive 12 PNG files in colours that coordinate with the Hippie Spirit Collection and 1 ABR file.
My creative team has made some incredible pages with this collection, you are sure to find some inspiration here:
And two pages from me:
I’m an ol’ hippie chick! LOL The descriptions you quoted are pretty close! I still carry the spirit in me and will till the day I move on to that great ‘love-in’ in the sky.
Living in a college town, we did a lot of demonstrating – war, equal rights, civil rights, etc. We got recognized with tanks spewing tear gas, but, I like to think it made a difference. I raised my own children to do the same. They have the spirit, themselves, I am proud to say!
You did an awesome job on this collection! What you added that not many people do is the ‘India-print’ designs, like in your papers. India print was huge!
Thank you for a neat post! I enjoyed a little trip down memory lane, myself!
Hi Su! I was born in the hippie years – 1968. Although I wasn’t old enough to actually live the hippie life, I do recognize myself in the description of the modern hippie. I’m so glad you like the collection and yes, the Indian prints were something I definitely wanted to add, I loved making those!
