August 2022- Just The Gist Of it

 Today we help you make a start on your kit choices. Sometimes you just can't work out where or how to start. Let's look at the kit again.

Citrus Twist TRAVELOGUE Life-Crafted Kit - April 2022 – Citrus Twist Kits

The papers are usually a good place to begin.

You can go with colours, or patterns or the overall theme of the kit. (In this case it is travelling). 

Do you have a map paper? Or one with streets? Do you have a woodgrain? Do you have a small floral? A fruit based paper? Leaves paper? The word paper bottom right could be a cut apart with journal cards or simply a collection of words or phrases around the theme. Don't forget you can counterfeit papers such as the green leaf one next to the words which could be made by stamping branches on plain green, the white on pink spots could be painted using a mask etc.

Once you've gathered your papers now add matching embellishments and alphas. They don't have to be identical, use what works for you!

Here's what we have coming up this month: 

  • 4th August: Forgery on the Fourth - Master Forgers share simple ideas for creating kit elements 
  • 6th August: Mini-kit Reveal and Project Showcase - inspiration for a smaller kit or project idea 
  • 12th & 18th August: Challenges #1 & #2 - to inspire you to get creating from your own kit 
  • 24th August: Follower Showcase - who has caught our eye this month 
  • 31st August: Killing Kits - an idea or two for using up the bits & pieces left in your kit box

 We always love to see your work, so please share your kits and projects with us. Post them in our Facebook Community, or share them on Instagram (we are @counterfeitkitchallenge or tag us using #counterfeitkitchallenge and #ckcaugust2022).
