I was very happy to be part of a sleepover crop just after making up my July Counterfeit Kit as it meant I had plenty of time to get scrappy with it. Amongst my creations I made a page up for the first challenge this month at the CKCB. We were asked to scraplift something from a master forger which was the perfect excuse to take a closer look at the blogs of some of our newcomers!
I chose THIS super page by Stephanie because its lovely graphic style really appealed to me. Whenever I scraplift someone else's page, rather than keep referring to the original, I make a quick pencil sketch of the main elements and note down a few of the colours or embellishments used. This way I end up with a page that is "inspired by" rather than "copied from".
If you compare it to Stephanie's original page, you will see that the matting on the large blocks transformed into machine
stitched borders and her arrow
paper became pennant tags cut from scraps. My title is a single 3x4 Sn@p card cut up
and realigned! The photo is one of several from a rainy day out at De
Efteling and will slot into our Holland 2006 holiday album.
Why don't you have a go at this challenge? It's a great opportunity to participate in with the counterfeiting, especially as this challenge can be used to join in with the CKCB Members' Blog Hop on July 24th - details on today's CKCB post here. I found so much inspiration that I'll be back with another scraplift myself!
