Counterfeit Kit for October

I have been trying to sort out my counterfeit kit for October I have chosen the papers but as a lot of my embellishments are packed for another weekend retreat I still have not added them to it. Still I did do a page of 'stickers' here

here are my papers



Here I could do with some inspiration please. Note I have a peacock feather pp, (similar to the one in the kit we are counterfeiting) I've had it some considerable time probably 2 or 3 years. I have never found how on earth to use it so if anyone has any idea I would be so grateful

I forgot to do my As seen yesterday so here it is my 10 bed fellows (mainly cats)


and today's are my 10 wooden cats that sit on my hearth




today I am thankful for being able to hold the sale indoors when the weather is so threatening.
for still taking a tidy sum even though we didn't seem to have many people in.

It's a great looking selection of papers. With the peacock paper I'm tempted to say - just use it to set up somewhere and admire, because it is so pretty!

Those papers look so lovely together! I'm feeling inspirationless at the moment but I hope you have a good idea of how to use the paper at some point :) Also loving your wooden cats! x

Is it the colour or the pattern of the peacock paper that has you stumped. Asuming that it is a colour you like to work with, how about deconstructing the paper into other things. Layered flowers, punched butterflys, a border treatment. Is is a one side or two sided paper? Oh, ya, banners are and easy go-to to use up paper bits.

i like your paper selection mary, if i had that peacock paper i would matte gel/matte medium it to something and add a peacock feather and other things to compliment and hang it up.

Have fun with your kit this month! For the peacock paper, take a look at how this person built a page around part of the patterned background: http://luzmasscraplace.blogspot.com/2011/10/amelia.html. You could also try building it into an embellishment cluster. Good luck!

Pretty pretty papers - what a great start!

I'd say that was a hard PP to use Mary - perhaps punch it into flowers/petal for layering - or look in the GB DT gallery - not sure if any used it as a large piece of PP but there are ideas there

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
