As a design team member over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge group I play along with as many of our monthly inspiration challenges as I can. The Forgery on the Fourth project is definitely one I enjoy! That is where we see a scrap product we like and set out to recreate it with supplies we already own. So let’s go ahead and dive in to what I have for you this month.
We are being inspired by this kit from from a German kit company, Danipeuss.de . Their November 2021 kit featuring Paige Evans brings us lots to be inspired by.
An additional embellishment pack in the Paige Evan’s line include chipboard pieces with these leaf motifs.
I wanted to recreate something similar in my own color palette.
All the details for this process are included in this video.
In addition to those leaves, I also made a sheet of patterned paper inspired by this kit sneak.
I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do with it yet, but I liked the string art style. Here is how my version turned out.
When I was done those projects, I kept going with creating more embellishments; this time I made layered stickers.
For more details and tips (at the end!) to consider when creating layered embellishments check out this video. The gist is that you should use at least three variations of sizes, shapes, and contrasting colors. I also like to create a mix of symmetrical and asymmetrical shapes.
Okay, that is the crafting I’ve been doing lately. I’ll be back next time with a layout process for you, using a completely different set of supplies 😉
