January 2019 - Challenge #2 - Mood Board Challenge

It's time for our second challenge of the month!  We'd like you to be inspired by this mood board:

(I had lots of fun putting this together and if you've never made a mood board before, I highly recommend giving it a try!)

So how will you be inspired by this mood board?  Maybe the quote and/or script font appeals to you.  Perhaps one of the designs, like the circles or stripes or curves, sparks an idea for you.  How about the books or the cake or the bulletin board - do they inspire you?  Let your creativity take the lead and see where you go!

Let's take a look at how Master Forgers Laura, Leslie, Lisa and Lori answered the mood board challenge!

Laura was inspired by the picture of the stack of books within the mood board, and used her kit to create a stack of paper strips. Rested on top are the photos documented her son's first proper school reading book.

Leslie fell in love with the overall feel of abundance, layers & repeated motifs.

Lori was inspired by the messy stack of books to create a stack of paper strips down the middle of her layout. She was also inspired by the colors - mainly the black, white, red, and pink, the circles, and the photo of the "sweet" dessert to create this layout of her and her "sweetheart"! They will celebrate their 29th anniversary tomorrow! You can read more about it on her blog here.

Lisa was inspired by all the circular elements in a couple of the photos, including that arch of plates on the wall, as well as that wonderful quote right there in the middle.

Don't forget to show us your work!  You can add it to our Link-up page, post it in our Facebook Community, or share it on Instagram (use #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcjanuary2019).  We love seeing what you make!
