110414 CKC November Tutorials

Wow! A lot of fun things to forge this month from the Fabulous Fall kit.

I tackled some Project Life styled cards (there is a whole sheet to cut apart in the original.) 

I used some gold foil paper to create an embelli similar to
the Maya Road heart & leaf paper clips.

I couldn't let the scraps go to waste so I punched some random confetti!

I thought I could forge the We R Memory Keepers
metallic copper sentiment vellum paper.

But the question was...

Yes, it did!
I taped some ruled paper behind to keep my writing straight.

I grabbed some more of the gold foil paper & raided my washi stash...

...to forge this MME Market Street "Ashbury Heights" paper.

I like mine better & the gold even shows through the patterns.

By far the most ambitious forgery was a nod to the We R
Memory Keepers Indian Summer Feathers paper -

only in GOLD, using a gilding
kit & Amy Tan feather stamp.

  I did a test to make sure the stamp wasn't too fine of a design.

The process:
I stamped the leaves with the gilding adhesive & let it dry until tacky.
I added pieces of the gilt paper & smoothed it on with a soft brush.
As you continue to brush the excess gilding pulls away to reveal your design.

Voila! I love it.

 Of course, you could just as easily do this with regular glue & a super fine glitter.
That would be fun! A counterfeit of  a counterfeit.

Hope we have inspired you to new heights of forgery this month :-)

  1. Wow, wow, wowzers - amazing creations Leslie!!!

  2. As ever, I bow to your mastery of all things forged! These are some awesome creations and you totally knock me out. I would never have had the idea with the foil paper and washi tape and I LOVE it! In fact, as you have mainly forged in gold this month, you just know that I'm going to love it all! The leaf design paper is wonderful too!

  3. Fabulous forgeries! Love the washi paper and the feather foil paper.
