Hello lovely people, thanks for joining in on the Counterfeit Kit Blog Hop this month. Hopefully you found your way here from Tina's Blog, don't worry if you didn't, I will post the Master List for the Blog Hop at the bottom of this post, that way you can jump along with us and see the beautiful kits that the Master Forgers have put together along with the lovely kit by our guest Helen DeRam. She has done such a wonderful job putting her kit together, make sure you check it out.
The kit that was chosen this month for our inspiration was the "Follow Your Bliss" kit from Papers and Beyond.
But I was a bit all over the place looking for my embellishments thinking of feathers, birds, flowers and bold colours. I didn't really find much at all so I went back to the original kit photo and looked a bit harder at the little embellishments and an "everyday/normal day" type of them with them so thought about that when rifling in my tubs of embellishments. I haven't added as many embellishments to my kit as I usually do each month but I figure if I have less I will just have to use them all and not have any left at the end of the month!! I need to busy my stash!
While searching my supplies I found a container with half cut our feathers, I think I remember saving these from some wrapping paper that the girls received about 5 years ago, so I have added them to my kit. They are a bit curled up from being saved for so long, but a heavy book or low iron will help to straighten them up.
In the Follow Your Bliss kit there is a packet of Thickers and then the black diecut phrases for layout titles, I couldn't quite work out if the Thickers in the original kit were soft peach colour or a woodgrain.
I decided that I would go with wood grain as I have woodgrain in my papers. :) I also added the black Thickers to substitute for the black diecut phrases and at the last minute I found the black diecut words which was the final touch to my kit.
Here is my kit all together so that you can see it in all it's glory. Actually that is what I am going to call this kit....
I really love how it has all come together and I can't wait to get in and use it. I hope that I have given you some food for thought on how to look at your supplies and draw inspiration to pull your very own kit, which doesn't have to look anything like the original kit at all. It is just a base to start off your inspiration.
Make sure you pop back in for all the rest of the fun we will have this month; Forgery on the Fourth, Two Monthly Challenges and heaps more.
