Minty


I collated what was left of my March Counterfeit Kit to see how I was doing...


I didn't use as many brads as I had hoped... I really wanted to use the '+' brads with the '+' paper but couldn't work out how.  Not much card/paper left.  Loads of stickers left but I never intended to use the whole pack.


I think I did well with the alphas.  Pretty much exhausted to glittered alphas.  I go to  wordsolver.net  to find words that can be made from my leftovers.  Others might be used for initials, or a mixed alpha title.

This layout came about from assessing the leftovers and thinking I could squeeze one more out!  I had to add a sheet for the base from my stash.


I trimmed an H to make two I's, used a 'z' on it's side for an 'N'  (is it an 'n' or a 'n'?  Anyway...)  and all the strips and offcuts of card and vellum were given pennant edges and layered up.


A doodled border and some scribbled journalling...


Considering it came from nothing I'm really pleased.

I'd like to enter at Studio Challenges 'M'

Thanks for stopping by

  8. I like the way you brought your kit together to assess what was left and how you'd used it. And a great last page with some clever letter saves! Ps. it's an "n". The word for "n" begins with a vowel sound and any vowel sound (not just vowels) need the "an" at the front! I used to teach business English as a second language so this was something that came up over and over! :-)

  14. you've been doing a great job using up your March kit, well done. This layout is really sweet. Your use of the letters is brilliant, and I think it is "an" n (en is the title on the letter).
