Guess what? To my crafty friends who are Master Forgers for CKC blog or participant followers, you will know of my struggles with massive kits and massive numbers of forgeries and even types of forgery ideas in the past couple of months. :)
I've started shopping through my craft supplies with some pre-selections for my November kit but as I've been looking at the first few monthly posts from the MFs and a few others who have their kits made, I came to realization that I didn't have some items come close to the inspiration kit showcased this month (Citrus Twist's Little Things). Hence forgeries were started tonight before I have even finalized my actual kit!!!! :)
Proof photo for how these papers (most are from The Paper Studio/Hobby Lobby and 1 is coloring book page) looked before I started my creativeness:
Getting started! The black triangles on white paper has a corner area missing on 1 of 2 that I pulled for counterfeiting. Likewise the zig-zag black and white is missing a section, as well as the coloring book page, and the Ikat print. Of the 4 designer papers only 1 full paper has been completely forged. I'm intentionally leaving sections untouched at this point in the month. Coloring book page hasn't been colored yet. I'm going to hold off on that and see if and how I use the others:
Those who have seen the inspiration kit (photo will be towards the end of the post) realize that spring colors are found along with some rainbow motifs. Rainbows are my inspiration for these forgeries. My rainbow palette seen below include yellow, pinks, orange, yellow-greens, teal, and blue-violets.
Forgery two: using a Stampin' Up daisy build-a-kit, I picked the open outline petals, leaves, and centers so that I could use colored pencils to give that watercolor look that is iconic in the Citrus Twist curated kit "Little Things":
Forgery three: Look at these 1970s-era palm trees!!!
Forgery four step a: using a Studio G 'thank you' stamp
Forgery four step b: zig-zag lines were so thick that the fine-lined stamp just wasn't showing up, so I had to use a black colored pencil to do the ribbon banner outlining and a black ink pen to thicken the lettering a little bit. It's still difficult to read. I think I may have to locate a fine tip black marker to make the lettering bolder. I'm loving all these rainbow spectrum forgeries!!!

Citrus Twist's curate kit "Little Things" from October 2018:
See those lovely tasseled bows in yummy spring colors? And the puffy sticker sheet just to the left of them that also has those tones. In the Northern Hemisphere we are in the midst of autumn season so this is a huge color and motif departure from what I've grown up thinking about for November. But I'm going to do my best to scrap and/or make cards with a November kit and set aside a separate traditional turkey color palette kit for Thanksgiving cards that I haven't made yet.
What crazy color-full creative paper engineering I have ahead for this month!!!! Stay tuned!!! You don't want to miss my kit reveal or upcoming projects!!!!!
