Forgeries on the Fourth - February Tutorials

for·ger·y
ˈfôrjərē/
noun
  1. the action of forging or producing a copy of a document, signature, banknote, or work of art.

Welcome to "Forgeries on the Fourth" where it is no crime to create your own version of the trendy, hip products from the inspiration kit using your own stash and ingenuity.  Each month on the fourth, check out tutorials from your Master Forgers or links to resources they have found for you on the internet. 


As you saw in the reveal HERE, this month's inspiration comes to us from Mind the Scrap Kit Club. Emma, a Counterfeit Kit Challenge participant and founder of Mind the Scrap, is no stranger to pulling together unique colors and patterns to form a kit.  But what to do if you can't lay your hands on one of these kits?  (And they are sold out, BTW!)  Forge them, of course!  Let's see what the Master Forgers came up with for copycatting some of these great selections.

 

Susan included two forged items in her kit. You can find out how she made them on her blog.

Kelly found a tutorial on making a tissue paper fringe heart, inspired by the Maggie Holmes hearts in the kit. The original project is intended to be hung on the wall, but you could easily scale it down for use on a scrapbook page.


Julene has done some simple forgeries that have been used on this layout
Be sure to show us what you've created by posting in our monthly Mr. Linky!  It's always such a thrill to create something inspired by or just like the original!
