Counterfeit Kit February - Post 5



My last layout that will get completed in Feb from this kit was inspired by the sketch challenge for March over at the sketch blog for Scrapbook365.  I really liked this sketch.



The koala in the picture is not really noticeable even in real life so I used an arrow that was sitting on my desk and added it pointing straight at him!  This sketch came together quickly and easily and was a great way to use up journalling blocks that I wouldn't end up using because they had vintage pictures on them.

I love the way the background card turned out.  I sprayed a plain aqua Bazzill with Mr Huey Heirloom Blue and Calico Shine.  It has lots of sparkle in real life and the splatters make it feel more rustic.  Normally I spray my backgrounds in a big box, but I couldn't find it and so I took the layout outside to spray on the grass (in the front yard even - the neighbours must have thought I was loony!).  And I learnt something important ... do not stand downwind on a windy day when spraying, unless you want speckled legs!

I will continue to use up this kit throughout March so that I can finish the photos from this trip.  With limited scrapping time my kit will be a two-monther LOL

  7. You've started with a great sketch to make a great page! Love how your background turned out (think some misting might be what the page on my desk right now needs!)

  8. Oh this page is super attractive - good use of the arrow and the camera that looks like you cut it out from the patterned paper (or a sticker, perhaps?). You've really blended all the elements here together so well. Nice!
