CKC June Kit - Using a Forgery

Here’s my layout using one of the items I forged for my June CKC kit. (You can read about what I did in this post.

I arranged my garland into a large circle and, since the doilies from Lisa were still out on my table, I placed one of them in the center and it was a perfect fit. I carefully lifted the edge of each pennant and put adhesive underneath until the entire circle was stuck in place on the page. This was definitely the most time-consuming part of the entire process; I had to be careful not to pull the garland out of place as I was adding the adhesive to each piece.

I added the photo (matted with a small yellow pattern from one of the 6x6 pads in my kit), and accented the layout with gold in the title, journaling strips and a hand-drawn border.

I like that the sunburst arrangement of the garland matches the subject of my page. This is a layout where the design actually prompted the rest of the page. I have a stack of photos that I've printed from my Instagram, and I'll flip through them when I'm looking for a little scrapping inspiration. As soon as I saw this photo of the sun beaming from behind the clouds, I knew it would be perfect for the page. And even better, I had an untold story to go along with it. I love it when things like that happen!
