Hi and welcome to the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Members Blog Hop. Each month we have so many talented and inspiring scrappers joining in on the counterfeiting fun that it's great to have a place to showcase them. Sit back, relax and enjoy this blog-gallery tour including Master Forgers and the amazing CKC participants.
This month Challenge #1 was hardly a challenge at all! We were to be inspired by one of our Master Forgers. Actually, the true challenge was in trying to narrow down all of the wonderful choices! After much perusing and hemming and hawing, I decided on Master Forger Dawn's mini book she had created about her husband as seen here. I love all the little bits and pieces she added and this was a perfect way to use up some of those end-of-the-kit scraps. Here is my creation:
While I didn't create a mini book, I translated those tags into a 12x12 layout. It's fun to a have many little canvases to create vignettes. This little shop in the shore community of Ocean City, New Jersey is a favorite of mine. The owner carries a unique mix of antiques, shabby chic furniture and well-chosen new items that fit that beachy feel. I like to say it's "Country Living" meets "Coastal Living". In each one of my "vignettes" I tried to include embellies that evoke the feel of the shop: pom-pom fringe, well-worn denim, lace doilies, a wood veneer ship in a bottle and of course, gingham, for the Gingham Whale!
Thank you, Dawn for your creativity and inspiration! Remember, if you are ever stuck in a rut or don't feel you've got your scrappy mojo, be SHORE (hehehe!) to check out the blogs of your Master Forgers and the faithful followers of the Counterfeit Kit Challenge.
Now go hop along and be inspired! Your next stop is Milissa.
