CKC ch#3

For challenge three at Counterfeit Kit Challenge I decided to pick 'use n idea you have saved previously'  I didn't know quite how to word it, but hopefully you'll understand me...  We always stash ideas away when we read magazines, blog hop, pin on pinterest, in our ideas notebooks etc.  How often do we come back to those ideas and lists?  I rarely do, maybe it is just me.

I pulled two layouts out of a folder of magazine clippings.  I keep clippings of layouts for me, but also for the little ones when I scrap with them.  They seem to find it much easier to have something pictorial to work from.  I stick them all on A4 paper and put the in a ring binder, kind of like an inspiration folder.  Now, I had no intention of putting them online when I cut them out so I have no reference to the artist or the publication.  If you know please tell me so I can credit them.

I worked on the bottom one first - I hope to come back to the second one before the end of the month.

I ran with the pink background and tried hard to find the perfect girly picture.  I have no recent girly pink photos - none of us are pink girls really - but when this little one was younger she did have a girly girly phase.

A close up of all the little snippety bits at the edges...
Bow bunting from Ashley Calder.  I threw a whole bunch of enamel dots and hearts at the page too.

Used up the acetate butterflies and added some resin flowers - still got all the gold ones to use.

The 'happy' die cut was too red so I gave it a thin coat of gesso and it turned pink.  Happy accident.  I thought I would paint it white and then colour it somehow, but it worked out brilliantly.

I think I've used a good amount of my kit of this layout and I'm pleased with how it turned out.

  1. Lovely LO. I like the colour mix.

    Hope you are having a nice weekend. Sue

  2. Oh, this is wonderfully lovely.
    I was going to ask about the bows - thought perhaps you had a punch I might covet, lol!
    It's much more delicate & detailed than the original.

  3. Love your take on the inspiration piece! The layered bits on both sides of the paper is so great... love the way they sort of frame the photo but still are so light and airy!! Pretty!

  4. This is a lovely layout, thanks for playing along with my challenge.
