I had just found it... maybe you all know its there... but what an inspiration that become..
Sooooo, what they do is pick a kit each month from somewhere on the net, and out of our own stash at home, we try to match it up as best we can...
Weeeeeeelll, I LOVED doing that! The things I pulled out - and colours I'd never use matching together...the brightness I usually steer way clear of AND patterned papers - eek! (you may laugh, but I just am hopeless at knowing what to do with pattern paper, yet silly - still buy them! Embellies I've had for years, and goodness knows what else. I made up a big kit!
Here is my kit
Here's where you will find the kit Counterfeit picked here
Wow... so many 'old' papers too!
Anyway... to the challenges set there to use this newly formed kit...
What an amazing sketch!!! Who cant get inspired by this!
I flipped it on its side, and used misting to give the divide of colour.
The stamped and cut-out arrows with the stamped postal imprint making a road gives an escape route for Cinderella.... The numbers are the counting down of the chimes of the clock ..... Its a bit of fun!
If you love playing with wet media, or would like to have a go at playing with it... here's a little step tutorial to try which is created for Scrap Therapy
I love framing my LO's, one way or another - I'll manage it somehow on most of my LO's I'm not sure why, maybe it just gives it some sort of balance or finish? I really dont know - it just kinda evolves.
Here I've used WRMK's Cherry Cardstock as the outside frame (I always cut my middles out to use for something else and to take some weight out of the LO ) The background paper is Authentic Carefree Jovial Paper and is cut down a little on each side to show a thin frame of the red. And the little sewn down inside frame is Authentique Carefree Content Paper I've distressed all the edges
Find some scraps and cut into rough little rectangles and stick down on the paper
Apply texture paste (this is fabulous stuff!!) with a spatula (so fun to play with!)
Time to use those wonderful Ranger Dabbers!!! I've used Adirondack Snow Cap to rub over the texture paste (once it had dried) and then once the Dabber paint had dried, I misted with Perfect Pearls Kiwi. Its really hard to capture the gorgeous glossimer/pearlised coverage it gives, but look through the photos here and I may have captured it once or twice. It gives a lovely sepia/nature tinge to the area.
For the smaller inside frame, I've cut a 25cm square and then created the frame by cutting the inside of the square out by leaving the frame about 1cm wide. I cut it roughly because I knew I would distress it, but if you dont want distressing, you might want to be a little more precise in your measurements. Out with the sewing machine with black thread and using zigzag, sew down the frame. If you dont want to sew - use one of these Tim Holtz Die Picks and make zigzag holes and join the dots with a black marker
Rough up the distressed edges so the red coloured reverse side of the sewn frame can be seen It should look like this below:
