CKC Challenge #1, Jan ’23

It is challenge time over on the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog. Our hostess for the month, Lisa was inspired by a double page sketch offered over at the Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine from 2010 . You can find that post here.

Are you a double pager? I used to be a dedicated double page girl. I did not like flipping pages in my album to see two discordant layouts side by side. I have no idea how I made the switch to doing single pages. I’m sure some of the industry trends played an influence. Some of it was a slow down in my own photo process. Definitely part of it was time allotment! At any rate, I have been a single pager for many years now, with just the occasional double. So it felt good to take on a double page this time.

First here is a peek at that sketch….

And here is my interpretation. I replaced some of the photos with clusters of photos. I adjusted some of the paper blocks with mixed media (details shots below). Finally, I turned my title and journaling block to be horizontal instead of vertical. Simple changes and I have a different layout.

Here are a few more closeups of this one.

There was a lot of “making” on this layout. Not only did I use glitter paste mixed media to make a background, but I created all of the embellishments. Previously I made the snowflake paper and the title card. I die cut foliage, watercolored & stamped snowflakes, and added a bit more other stamping., If you want to see the whole process of pulling all these pieces together, I’ve got a video for you.

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!

Until next time, have an artful day.
