Yay, I DID manage to get a page finished with my June Counterfeit Kit, and it was quite fun to put together, especially the watercolour background section! I've been watching a lot of Missy Whidden's YouTube videos lately, and I was totally inspired to try the "packaging technique" to create the blue background with some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink here:
This was actually my second attempt at a background. The first one I tried, I used blue and pink sprays, and they ended up a bit too purple to suit my photos, but hopefully I can use that paper for another page later on. All is not lost!
When choosing a sketch for this page ('cause you know I always like to use a sketch!) I turned to one of my old favourite sites, Sketches in Thyme for this beauty:
Here's a closeup of some of my fussy cut details:
Remember those circle cutters from Creative Memories from days of yore? I broke those out to make the circles. I also toned down the yellow patterned paper with a coat of gesso, which subsequently warped my paper, but it's cool, I actually love the effect!
And here's a closeup of my journaling, nothing too fancy, just a little bit about how Brenna loves to hang out with me:
I think I'm her favourite person! (And she, of course, is one of mine!)
So now that I've got this posted, I'm off to scrap some more photos with my June Counterfeit Kit. Could this be the start of a good month? Let's hope so!
