Twenty four pages of layouts were realized from my October counterfeit kit, Ocular Distractions. At times it felt like the most challenging of collections to work with. Thought about abandoning it a couple of times. The combination was not anything I felt comfortable with. But the reality of it would be that if I dismantled the kit, the same papers would still be in my stash. And they would be mocking me every time I came across them. So I pressed on, buoyed by the daily prompts from LOAD and the supportive comments posted to each layout in flikr. And in the end, I found some lovely layouts hiding in this unlikely (and previously unloved) combination. Most of the layouts can be found through the flikr link above. But just for fun and for your convenience, here are a few of my favorites.
As is my new happy habit, the final bits and snips went into a stack of journal cards.
And reorganized together to give them another chances at being worked into a layout.
This weekend has been filled with shopping for candy and decorating the house. Dressing for costume parties and cavorting with friends. Designing loot bags for Mr. Muddle's team at work.
Excuse me, I have to go test some more of the candy now.
