092413 CKC September Blog Hop - Challenge #1 Finish It!
Here it is again!
Another month at Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog & the challenge for our blog hop this month is a project completion challenge: pick a project that is either not finished or something that you always intended to start - and FINISH IT!
Well the tough part about this is to narrow it down to just one, lol!
I had been holding on to this photo for a long time.
I had matched it up with a paper that was similar to the wallpaper in the photo.
Unfortunately, it really wasn't happening for me anymore with that paper.
Time to regroup! Perfect for this challenge.
I knew my kit didn't have the right papers, so I found a very neutral one for a background.
Then I sifted through all of the goodies in my kit & chose what worked.
I layered & shifted things around until I was happy.
Glued things down.
Brought out the Color Shine...black...
Then gave a spritz of white - oops! Big blob - no prob.
I'll just wipe it away...along with a big smear of the black ink... ugh
This explains the random patterned paper added in desperation!
I call this a happy accident, as I love the effect.
I have been trying to make use of all the goodies in my kit, so I stencilled "Authentic" and stitched underneath to draw a little attention. I used my white pen to minimize some more of the black dots.
This is my mom. The flash in the photo is glaring off of the oil painting but I know every brushstroke.
I was really pleased to be able to use that giant @ wooden piece.
So! Time to hop on over to see what KATE BLUE aka Queen Kat has created!
Here's the full list just in case - you do not want to miss a thing!
