Welcome to the start of July's Members' Blog Hop from the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog. I chose the first challenge: to use at least 4 photos on my page!
I recently discovered that my camera has a "stitch" function so that I could take really wide panoramas and tried it out on top of the Camera Obscura on Edinburgh's skyline. The resulting 12 photos were printed at half-size and matched up perfectly but would have needed 3 full pages to be viewed in a row. Instead, I decided instead to overlap them, trimming the tops or bottoms to emphasise the layering and producing a view from a point!
My July Counterfeit Kit was brightened up by the blue cardstock background and a scrap of brown patterned paper with Broadway Sizzlets helped create a bold title. I still need to write the date and location on the page though!
second CKCB challenge this month - to use an old tool: several years ago when I was on the PTA of my children's primary school I bought some bargain priced mini punches from the school catalogue including a tiny triangle punch ... and this month I decided to use it to make some perfectly regular bunting for a page about the Royal Yacht Britannia near Edinburgh. I also dusted off some ancient rub-on letters - at one point I used a lot of these but I keep forgetting to use them these days.
Hubby is posing by some fake pints of beer in one of the crew's bars on board. The boat tour is great fun with an numbered hand-held audio guide for you to listen to at your own pace. We found it fascinating to see how the "royals" and their retinue lived at sea.
Karen is next up on the Members' Hop; I wonder which of this month's challenges she has chosen?
If you get lost whilst hopping the full order is published on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog today.
