First up - there's a brand new kit to counterfeit! If you're following the reveal blog hop, then you already know that this month we are being inspired by Studio Calico's Pop Art kits. These kits are the epitome of trendy and really capture the contemporary graphic design vibe that is so "in" right now.
That said … I've been a member of the Counterfeit team for 2+ years and this month marks the first time I've been truly stumped by a kit. Nothing in the Pop Art kits spoke to me and I honestly didn't know where to begin. In the end, I pulled a little inspiration from all 4 of the kits. The "+" design featured on one of the Project Life cards was the first thing that caught my eye, followed by the grid patterned paper in the main scrapbooking kit. I pulled some stars, as seen in the stationary kit, and some tags like the ones in the card kit. I went with a different color scheme but I did stick to the overall idea of black and white with pops of color. And, since all of the kits had washi tape in them, I included some of that too.
Here's the end result, which I'm calling Uptown …
… and my add-on Project Life kit …
Funny how things work out - I was so distraught as I was pulling this kit together, but in the end it wound up being one of my absolute favorite counterfeits to date! I've already made 2 layouts and a card. Proof that you should never let a little lack of inspiration deter you from joining in the CKC challenge!!
