CKC Round Up

Here are the last couple of layouts from my Counterfeit Kit for January...

This is one that I like;

Simple layering of two patterned papers, a few pieces from the cut part sheet ad a glassine bag with paper bows and sequins.  I've also used the two toned ribbon because it matched the heart paper so well.  (I made need to buy another couple of sheets of the grey heart paper!!)

This layout I don't really like;

It was my take on the wonky stripe sheet in the original kit.  It's a pretty good forge but I just didn't know how to use it.  Any way, I got a lot of the turquoise alphas used up!  You can see how I altered the j's in to i's, F's in to E's and Q in to O with a turquoise and white pen.  Also one of the A's used to be a V, but you can't really tell which.  I do love to stretch my alphas!!  It pretty much says it all...

She is truly bad but she is the most beautiful bunny in the world, ever in the history of rabbits, so, you know, it kind of evens out!!

Here is what remains of the kit...

I never expect to use all the alphas so the wood grain and gold glitter thickers will go back in to the alphas box.  I mad a good dent in the word stickers.  I need to look and see if there are any I will still use, if not they will go in the kids pile.  The turquoise alphas have been stretched to their limit so the remainder will go on  nonsense journal page background.  Just one piece of patterned paper went untouched, and there is half a sheet unused.  I'm fairly pleased with how I used the bits up - I would like to have used the pink sheet but just don't have a suitable photo at the moment.  I need a run of girly photos and with the little man being my main photography subject at the moment I'm not sure where I will find them!

 Thanks for stopping by!

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
