This page is for the Forgeries on the Fourth. (Counterfeit Kit Challenge Feb 2016)
I really enjoyed faking the hearts to look like the ones in the kit and the ones that Leslie had created. I also had a go at making the repetitive background with a daisy and leaf outline.
The colours of the kit was the most challenging - so many colours. Which to highlight, which to leave in the background or to a minimum. I loved the stitching component and went a bit mad with that. It was also tricky in the end because I knew the page needed a lot of white, but at the same time, because the blues reminded me of the nautical theme I ended up going with, there had to be enough of them to capture that too. I ended up getting most of the white from the patterned papers. I also had to trade off the envelope I wanted to use with a postcard. All my envelopes are very antique style and just didn't go with this layout. I loved how the fringe had been used on those hearts and had to use the closest I could get to that - a material fringe - but very happy with the results.
This set of photos I took on my Christmas Break on a day trip to Orbost and Marlo in Victoria, Australia. I got some really good photos on that day trip with Mum and Dad (it was Mum's birthday). I also got to see where the Snowy River enters the ocean.
If I could have jumped in and kissed this seal I would have - the experience was unbelievable and very memorable - but being wild he would have maimed me, so best just to remember him by these pics! (He was BIG - over 2 meters long).
