Welcome to my little corner of the web where today I am a stop on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Lesley.
I have very much enjoyed my month as Guest Designer. I have a few layouts finished and scheduled and a few left to make.
This layout was inspired by the first challenge...
Challenge #1 Weather Related : Use a weather Icon (sun, cloud, raindrops...) on your project
And this layout has words! I know - I didn't know I could do words either!! :D
I put a few sets of part-used alphas in to my Hi May kit with the intention of using them ALL. This title happened to have a few 'used' letters so I improvised - I cut a 'u' down to make an 'r', the 'd' is a 'p' and the 'b' is actually 'q'.
They were black and kraft and really didn't match so I gave them a few coats of gesso and sprayed them with grey silver mist.
I commissioned my Pet Crocheter to make me some clouds. The pattern was in her magazine and we just thought it was so sweet! She's a star, is my Pet Crocheter - Love you Mum!
I gave them a light spritz of grey silver mist too as they were a little too white!
They sun rays were actually the triangles cut out of the template I made to make my forged paper. I covered the card triangles in matte medium and chunky glitter. I needed to fill in some patches that didn't get glittered the first time around and I had glitter everywhere for days afterwards but I think it was worth it!!
I like the difference in texture between the glitter and the crochet...
What d'ya think? Your next stop on the hop is Leslie or if you would like to start at the beginning pop over to Counterfeit Kit Challenge.
