Too busy with other commitments, I missed a few months with the Counterfeit Kit. However, with being a little ahead of schedule with other commitments, I want to join back in this month with a smaller and reasonable kit to kill. My eclectic mix of papers date back from 2007 to the present. I am thrilled with the result of a "build and filter process" that I took. I believe that I read that one of the designers at The Counterfeit Kit Club took this same process but I cannot find it now.
'What do you mean by "build and filter process"?', you may wonder. I started big, I mean huge. I started by gathering all my Fall papers, and some embellishments. I arranged them in a color spectrum slightly resembling "the scheme" from the CKC inspiration photo:
That is the "build" part.
I almost went with it. But, I looked back and it didn't really resemble the inspiration much. But, mostly, there would be very little touched of the kit. Did I mention that it was huge? So, I narrowed it down by pulling, as closely as possible, the sheets whose colors most resembled the inspiration photo.
That is the "filter" part.
I used to put on my make-up the same way....load it on then wipe it off to a more natural look...lol. It's probably been years since I have worn make-up now. I need to learn how to put it on properly with wrinkles. :) But, I digress....
I chose the gears for two reasons. The first is that I know that I want to use them for my Sketches in Thyme page for October. The second is that it would fit both the "metal" and "transportation accents" to the "Evidence" My evidence is further captured by the leaves and string.
What do you think of my title? My titles usually stink. Really stink! I was so embarrassed by how stupid my title was one month that I changed it during the month. :) Anyhow, I took a little time with it this month. I started by researching "Steampunk" since the gears made me think of that. Somehow "Steampunk" just didn't go with Fall, to me. I used a thesaurus and looked up gears and a few other words. I think that "gadgets" got me to "gizmos". I like the ring to Fall Gizmos.
Not much else to say. Actually, I probably already bent your ear.
Hope that you have a great day!!!
