Forgeries on the Fourth - October Tutorials

  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. 

CSI (Case file 365-9)

This month over at Counterfeit Kit Challenge we are using the unique inspiration
offered by Color, Stories, Inspiration blog (CSI)
While not a traditional kit, there are still endless options for pulling together a creative collection.  We may need to use our magnifying glass, though, to search for some possible embellishments.  Our super-sleuth Master Forgers studied the evidence section of the case file and discovered these suspects for your consideration.

You be the judge and jury and decide if you'll give them a go!

Check out the tutorial that Lynnette found on the My Creative Scrapbook blog.  You, too, can make this sweet little picket fence.
