Big Girl

Here's the first January challenge over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog ...

Challenge #1:  Subway Art
Use the subway art technique (using different colors/fonts in a block of writing like a title or journaling)

I've been dying to have a play with the "Winter Mixture" kit which I put together for the January Counterfeit Kit Challenge, inspired by the Hip2bSquare December Kit and using lots of stuff from my stash (see my previous post for details).
So I took it along to KHC yesterday and spent a whole day in cuttin and stickin heaven, scrapping this sweet school photograph of John's little granddaughter Macy ...


I started with a brilliant sketch by Michelle Hernandez for the latest issue of Scrap365 - so much fun to work with - thanks Michelle! :o)
As you can see, I piled on the layers and used up quite a few of the goodies from my main kit, including a selection of alphas which I used to create the "Subway Art" style title ...


I also used lots of goodies from my add-on kit, which was inspired by the December Embellishments Kit from Oh, Deer Me and the Hib2bSquare add-on kit (see my previous post for details) ...



In the close-up above, you can see several DIY 'Bellies ...

  • squished bottletop, 
  • punched kraft smiley, 
  • acetate arrow frame, 
  • fancy paperclip,
  • acrylic fragment decorated with peel-offs


More DIY 'Bellies in the picture above, including ...
  • fancy vintage-style brad
  • floral epoxy sticker
  • wired star gems

What a brilliant idea this is - I'm thoroughly enjoying my first go at the CKC and I've had some of this stuff for absolutely AGES! :o) Why not check it out yourself? There is a new challenge on the blog already ... I'm off to have a look right now!

Thanks for looking, hope to see you again soon :o)xxx
