September Counterfeit Kit

Our kit this month is Lost River kit from Studio Calico.

I've used the papers in this last picture for the creation of my kit.
Here's the papers. (I totally left out the black & white writing one.)
 
 
It occurred to me that with the ochres, pale blues and bright yellow that these are the colours of Australia.
 Modestly I named my kit "Australia".
 
 
Extra papers
  The orange striped paper sent me on a diversion. I found 3 sunbursts in my kit so included those.
 
One had a rust tone with matching plain paper.
They replaced the woodtones.
I've included a cork looking piece and some cork border strips for texture plus 3 neutrals.
 
Now here's the order of our blog hop.
A warm welcome to our Guest Designer Jess.

I like how you focused on those papers as your inspiration and how you named your kit for your homeland!

Australia, indeed. I'm expecting some of your wonderful travel photos to make an appearance this month! Love how you've managed to add texture to your kit. And do I spy some forgeries in the mix?

I love how you've used the papers to build your kit. Them embellishments go really well and those yellow alphas look great. Can't wait to see some of your projects with your kit.

Fantastic looking kit with so many wonderful neutrals :)

Julene! You're correct, of course, the kit screams Australia - and my favourite bits too - the earthy colours of the desert and the blue hues of the sky. Fabulous, as always, my friend x
