Life Unfiltered. Seriously.

It is challenge time over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Our hostess for the month, Tara was inspired by an ephemera piece in the inspiration kit she chose. First off, lets take a look at the whole kit from Citrus Twist Kit from March 2020 called Life Crafted, Weekender.

Now let’s zoom in to one piece in particular. See the label that says “no filter needed”. Tara wants us to use this idea to tell stories of “your life unfiltered… the beauty in the mess of real life.”

Challenge accepted. Big time.

These are many photos over the past 15 years that I filtered out of my storytelling. They were all ugly to me for one reason or another. In fact sharing them on the internet has been a cringe inducing challenge. But here they are, totally unfiltered. I chose each one for a tiny bit of story it could tell. Since I didn’t have enough room to add journaling labels to each photo, I went old school and just scribbled all over them.

I asked this question in my YouTube video and I’ll ask again here: What do you do with bad photos? Do you chuck them right away? Save them? Scrap them??? Let me know in the comments!

And speaking of videos, here is the full process video.

I hope you can check out the other designers takes on this challenge! Don’t forget to show off your stuff over on the CKC Facebook group, or tag us on Instagram @counterfeitkitchallenge or use #counterfeitkitchallenge. We love to see your work!
