041221 CKC April Challenge #1

Al Fresco
Here is the challenge I came up with to use our April Counterfeit kits!
I think we are all looking forward to being able to enjoy being out & about! What are you looking forward to? Dining at a favorite food spot? Movie night in the park? Gathering with neighbors/family for fun?
Now that I have you in a playful mood how about using some whimsy on your page by layering your patterned papers to fashion your own background with scenery & puffy clouds?  Your kit has already taken the work out of coordinating the products, so feel free to mix & match those patterns. And if that’s a little too overwhelming? Just layer them up behind your photo(s)!

 I had some extra inspiration for this one that made it even more challenging! Here is the April inspiration over at Archi-scraps, where creative paper crafting is inspired by architecture:

Use pleating

 I started with the idea of the pleats being sun rays formed (somehow!) from the striped paper &coaxing it into a fan shape. I used one of the stampsets in my kit to make the sun face & fussy-cut some sunglasses :D I stamped clouds on some good words for beachy fun and fussy-cut those. The "surf" was cut from a patterned paper that looked like waves to me and added to the striped beach. A little mixed media represents the water. A few beachy accents & a title finish it off!

I found this really fun & creative - I hope you did, too.

Don't forget what's left this month at Counterfeit Kit Challenge! There's plenty to keep you inspired this month so don't forget to come back here regularly for ideas and challenges. The rest of the month looks like this:
