My counterfeit kit didn't have any 12x12 papers in it. I chose a piece of kraft and a 12x12 sheet of patterned paper to be my canvas. I cut the kraft paper down to 81/2 x 11 in size. It's not a size I regularly work with and was the perfect way to step farther out of my comfort zone. I chose a piece of patterned paper with triangles in the print. I pulled out my stamps and created a design on two sections of the patterned paper. My inspiration is based on a layout featured at Scraphappy.org.
My kit is full of bright colors. Using the pale pink patterned paper as my canvas along with the kraft cardstock toned the colors down just a bit. The pink visually supports the idea that this cat is full of a lot of love.
While I love my kit, it's been a challenge to get things going. The bright colors and patterns lend to a very graphic design. I am off to search for more pictures that will work well with this kit. I am not sure if I will kill the kit, but I am at least hoping to make a dent in it.
