Warning! Loooooong post! Keep going, all will be revealed :-)
Well, February flew by, didn't it? I participated in LOAD, completed 33 layouts, scrapped 110 photos, celebrated 200 prompts over at Whimsical Musings with a week of Guest Designers and prizes, and felt like I was running the whole time. Phew, quite a month. And so, welcome to March.
Hopefully you've arrived here via Leslie's blog and her inspirational blue box full of fabulous supplies and forgeries, but if not, you're going to want to go back to the beginning of the hop back at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge! We have a particularly wonderful treat this month too, welcoming Lesley back to us as Guest Designer. Wooohoooo! We've missed her and I am delighted that she's back with us :-)
Onto the new kit for this month then.
We've been given the 'Click' Story Kit from Ali Edwards which was "interesting" to say the least - ha ha!
Here are a couple of photos of the kit that I fought with a little before coming up with my own take!
Mmmm, no paper, few embellishments, not a lot of colour! What to do?
There was considerable chatter in our Master Forger group about how to interpret this kit and someone - Clair? - said that she saw it more as an embellishment kit that would then be added to with papers etc. Eureka! That's what I'd do.
So, I started off making up an embellishment kit in black, white, grey and neutrals with the focus on pocket page cards, cameras and loopy words. I then added in some more embellishments which I thought I might be able to use... flair, sequins, washi, Tim Holtz film roll and alphas.
And then... I turned that into a full kit by picking out the (few) colours from the inspiration kit - orange/dark red, dark green, a hint of yellow, an aqua and some lime green - added in my old BasicGrey paper and a speciality vellum paper as well as some more pocket page cards. There's not as much in this kit as it looks so I'm thinking it will be a real challenge for me to see if I use it up!
So... finally... let me introduce you to my March kit, Tangent.
Well done for getting so far. I hope you like all the twists and turns this kit took. Watch this space for how I use it - fingers crossed!
Here's the full blog hop list in case you get lost along the way. Don't forget to let me know you were here :-)
