Counterfeit Kit Challenge #2 - Fall Colors Challenge

Welcome to Challenge #2 at the Counterfeit Kit Club. Tina has tasked us with a challenge of Fall Colors. Here is what she has to say, "Over here in the states Fall seems to be a huge thing! Especially with decor. So, with that in mind use the colors of Fall in your Area of the world to help you with your Creation."

I have a few pictures of the maple tree that is in our neighbors yard. In 2019 it was all one color - orange.

I did not touch up my photos, nor use any type of filter. 

 I printed out my photos at 3x5 and matted onto white cardstock, the vertical photos are matted separately, but the one on the right side I matted as one large piece. I trimmed down the Auburn Lane black and white floral paper to 11x 11 and the one inch pieces I cut of on the left side of the page. One of them is cut in half and tucked behind the photo so make it seem like a full strip. 



I used a couple of the cut a parts on the page brown wood grain) and tucked them above my photos on the left and above and below the journaling on the right.

I added in a couple of the Silhouette cut leaves in orange and green and a stamped and fussy cut leaves . I also fussy cut one of the houses from the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane for the left side. I finished it all off with a few of the Bo Bunny Jewels. 


I was not originally going to use this paper for these photos but the were in a competition with the oranges in my kit, and the wood grain paper I included was just to dark.

Adventure

I am suing the wood grain paper from the Bo Bunny - Bella Rosa Collection for my background paper. One of the 6x8 papers had the industrial looking bridge and cogs on it that I am using for the background mat of the photos. I added in the dark red paper for the banner just cut in half with the hidden seams behind the photos.


I moved my journaling to be underneath the photos and on the banner. I fussy cut the house from the Pink Paislee Auburn Lane paper pad.

Cookie Break


 In my Counterfeit Kit - CKC September 2021 - Undecided I the DCWV paper from the Tajamahal paper pad that I put in just for the orange color. I had not idea of how I was going to use it or what photos. 

I had received a batch of photos and had these two of the guys taking a cookie break amongst the bricks. 

So I pulled out my xacto knife and did a little bit of fussy cutting to get the photos nestled in the flowers.

Begin and Today Layouts

 I'm using some scraps from my CKC September 2021 - Undecided Kit for my layouts today. First up is a 8 1/2x11 layout for my youngest son. We took the bullet bricks from our back yard and are moving them to his yard. He can use them to finish off the side of the fence. 


I scattered around the die cut foliage and added a leaf paper clip to the  top of the layout. 


The second is a 12x12 layout of our front circle. We moved the the larger bricks from the terraced beds and side beds to re do this bed. Most of the extra bricks are headed to my youngest son's for him to reuse. They cleaned up really nice after a good power washing. 


I matted the white cardstock twice then used the black and white Tinkering Inc paper.  I will be journaling on this layout but I need to check and make sure I get the journaling correct. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Refresh layout

I pulled the Tree Rings from my Forgeries on the Fourth that I  included in my Counterfeit Kit - CJC September 2021 - Undecided. 



I was planning on cutting a part the design and use part on my layout and the other part on my son's layout. I always keep the inside pieces until I'm done with the design and decided to use the inside pieces on the layouts. As I was planning my pages I realized that most of the tree ring would be coverd, so I used the inside pieces.


I added in a couple of labels at the to of the photo and a label at the bottom with the date.

The die cuts are really large in this collections and i have a hard time using them. I just used one of the lanterns at the bottom of the page, at least it's one down.
