Here is another (and last) layout with my August Counterfeit kit. I used almost ALL the tools that I put in my kit! And the few missing tools, I plan to use them for making some cards with my kit's leftovers...
Among the tools, there were fringe scissors that I've bought for cheap a long time ago and that I've never used. So I used them to make a fringe border on my layout... I wasn't sure I would like it but I do!
I used a sketch by Scrapbook Generation.
I had only a few (homemade) embellishments left in my kit: a vellum flower, a gold embossed fox and tiny tag. So I decided to add more gold as accent and I used gold perfect pearls on my background stamping. It was such a long time that I didn't use my perfect pearls!
Here is a little tip to add a wood texture look on a die cut title: use kraft paper and light brown ink with a woodgrain stamp.
On my layout, I also added glossy accent on the title for more dimension.
This layout was inspired by Shimelle's "20 projects": using embossing folders. Mine was already in my kit!
