August 2021 - Challenge #1 - Going Diagonal!

It's the 12th which can only mean one thing... it's time for Challenge #1 round here at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge and I'm excited to see how you interpret it.

First of all - as always - a quick reminder of our inspiration kit this month: the main May 2021 kit from Dani Peuss

Challenge #1 - Going Diagonal!

Many years ago, I did a year-long scrapbook class with Heidi Swapp and I have to say that I learnt a lot of sound basics that are still part of my scrappy repertoire today. As this kit is full of gorgeous Heidi products, it reminded me of that class. 

One of the design principles that I use the most is using the diagonal for your page. Place elements on a diagonal to draw your line down through the page - whichever direction that might be.

So today, use a "diagonal" design on your page! 

  Master Forger Leslie gave this one a twist - she scraplifted Master Forger of Ceremonies Lisa!

 Master Forger Tara dug into her kit for the first time to create a mixed media background for this challenge!  You can check out some close-ups HERE

 Master Forger Julene went vintage with her layout.

Master Forger Misty started with a diagonal paper and used it to cascade her elements across the page. You can always see more on her blog and YouTube channel.

Master Forger Kate layered up her corner diagonal with all the elements featured on her page! Even her photo features a cool diagonal composition! 

There's more to come in August so make sure you come back!
