100418 CKC Forgery on the Fourth

My October counterfeit kit, "Shalom"

When I chose the kit for this month, I knew there were some wonderful opportunities to flex my forger muscles. As always, some turned out as envisioned - others? not so much!

First I wanted to try some papers:

 Jillibean Soup “Shades of Color” Gregarious Glow 
& Pink Paislee “Pick Me Up” #21 & #9.

I have had a very chaotic September & when I worked on these forgeries I did them from memory. Definitely proof that I have senioritis, lol! The first is simply washi tape, the other two some beloved Basic Grey 6x6 pads.

I just punched out the chevron shapes and used adhesive photo squares behind the starbursts.
A little fussy but definitely doable.

Next I knew I wanted a large woodgrain word for a page about my 2018 One Little Word.
I printed it to size using the Sandat font which connected the letters beautifully.
 I then trimmed it & clipped it onto a slice of woodgrain paper & fussy-cut.

I loved both the taped & the framed sentiment, so they got married!
These are a digi mock up, but as I create with the Maggie Holmes frame paper, I will decide what I want them to say & type them on my vintage typewriter. I will use the washi tapes I used in the paper forgery above that got tossed into my kit as I cleaned up.

I have some back-to-school pages to make this month so I plan to use these puffy stickers to forge the adorable Pink Fresh Studio “Let Your Heart Decide” Thought paper. I think I will only need a strip so will do this one on demand.

Well! I hope that you are inspired to try your hand at counterfeiting!
