Forgeries on the Fourth - May 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.

Susan forged two sets of items for her kit this month. You can get the details on her blog.

Julene has Counterfeited 2 papers, both using simple ideas.

Lisa had mixed success with her forged stripey alphabet and the coloured veneers. You can find out all about it over on her blog.

Great minds think alike :D

Here's a link to Pinterest for stamping on acetate/vellum ideas,as in those cute b/w embellishments in the original. This one is altered with alcohol inks but imagine layering your transparent elements over a beautiful patterned paper for added pizzazz.

What about creating a faux bokeh paper with stamping?
This post from June 2013 Guest Designer Sherri Breese
gives you her inside tips for making this work & customizing for a motif!
Her examples below show both a subtle & bold version.
The post includes a link to the Lawn Fawn tutorial.

(Notice the hearts on the left-hand version? Delightful!)
Here's another online tutorial for a faux bokeh patterned paper.

Jemma took a scrap of patterned paper, a hole punch and some liquid glaze to make a variety of faux-enamel dots ...

... and taking the two tone embellishment theme, she even made two-tone dots from that stripey pattern!  The hardest part is leaving the glaze plenty of time to dry ... fingerprints are not a good look

Jemma also forged the butterfly transparencies by making her own rub-ons using Butterflies font by Typadelic at Dafont printed Crafty Computer Paper dry rub-off decal paper (you can also use Safmat or print directly onto a transparency).

We would love to see anything that our members create using the tutorials we've found - and, even more so, if you counterfeit something from scratch. Please do share with us by adding a link to our monthly Mr. Linky!
