ATC's for the Scraps of Darkness Store

I wanted to use these ATC's that I made for the Scraps of Darkness Store for a personal ATC swap.
I've seen so many beautiful beach themed items out there. It was easy to be inspired.




Here are some close ups. Basically I started with the background. I used a Prima stencil and some modeling paste. I used Wow Embossing Powder: Atlantic Seaspray and various inks and sprays to give it that beach feel. I sped up dry time by using my heat gun and then used some Gel Medium to adhere the cheese cloth. I rolled my Blue Fern paper and then adhered my little beach related pictures.





I used cheesecloth under each of the images.




I used a Prima stencil on the background. The Scraps of Darkness online store carries a wide variety of Prima products.


I used some various Stickles  and inks from my stash.


I rolled some Blue Fern Contemplation papers. The Scraps of Darkness Online Store has lots of Blue Fern products as well. 



I used some Prima bloom spray and other mists to get the various colors.


Another angle.



And one last group photo




These items you can find in the Scraps of Darkness Online Store:

Blue Fern Contemplation

Faber Castell Gel Medium 

Dritz Cheesecloth

Currently sold out:

Wow Embossing Powder : Atlantic Seaspray

However I found this Wow Embossing Powder: Opaque Pastel Blue ( I think this would work wonderfully)

Uniquely You

Hello Crafty friends!  Here is another project featuring wonderful products that can be found in the Scraps of Darkness Store just click here to check out their products and kits!

I am so excited I got to use some Blue Fern papers and they are so gorgeous. I used papers from the Serendipity line. The beautiful lady in the photo, Jamie, is a friend of my sister and me.  They went to high school together and have maintained that friendship over the years. She had a photo shoot last year and this shot just screamed to be scrapped!!

I used the flip side of "Chronicle" from the Serendipity line from Blue Fern Studios.
I also used Rebecca Baer Marrakech stencil.
Here is a close up of the stencil work on the paper.


The next item you can find in the Scraps of Darkness store is this awesome Prima Art Ingredients Glass Glitter...I used some gel medium and the glitter held really well.



I'm definitely gonna have to find more places to use this glitter.  Here you can see a feather I tucked in to match what she is wearing.





Now you're gonna see me alter this cool chipboard from Creative Embellishments. I wanted to make it black to match my layout and anchor the left side of the layout. I used Art C Ultra Chalk Paint in black from the the Color Add On kit.. Here you can see how that turned out. I wanted it a bit deeper rich so I used some Ken Oliver Color Burst Lamp Black to intensify the blackness. It worked like a charm.



I like how it turned out and it looks great in the sunlight.



On the other side of the layout I used another gorgeous Creative Embellishment.. its a wonderful dress form with roses inside. I've never seen one so detailed. I brushed a bit of black ink just little to have blend a little into the background.



Here you can see I used some more of the color burst to intensify the color of the flowers. The flowers I used here were....


Here you can see another flower that I used the Color Burst and placed on top of a Prima metal embellishment.




Now the final layout. I loved adding a few feathers under the photo ...thanks for stopping by.


I am also entering this in the Creative Embellishments June Challenge:


 The picture they have up has like fairies and it seem ethereal, quiet and magical. I used some CE chipboard and wanted to create an ethereal sense with my layout almost magical and quiet.

Blue Fern Studios Serendipity - Calling Cards
Blue Fern Studios Chronicle
Magnolia Shabby Chic Roses - Mahogany

Doll Tag Swap for Scraps of Darkness

Hello crafty friends, 
I'm back with a tag I made for the Scraps of Darkness Doll Tag Swap.  I loved using my Julie Nutting Mixed Media Doll Stamp -Mindy.
This beauty is going to Sarah R in Canada.
I actually used two tags and cut them to make one oversized tag. I edged the tag with some paint and then layered on some papers and die cuts. I used a few embellishments in the flower, wood shape and fancy leaf. 

You'll be able to find the products that I labeled in the Scraps of Darkness Store.

Here's the my cutie pie Mindy tag:
I started off stamping my doll stamp with some archival ink and put on the wonderful paper from Blue Fern Studios Serendipity line - Contemplation. You can find the paper I used for my doll here.



and here are some close ups starting with the gorgeous Prima flowers which can be found here. They are called Prima Flowers - Slate:


Here you can see the background paper I used from Blue Fern Studio Serendipity Line -Reminisce paper. As you can see I went around the edges with the Prima Art Alchemey Paint.



I used some Prima dies to pop out of the top and bottom under the paper.


Here you can see the BoBunny Kraft Wood Shapes. I chose to leave it in its natural state.



Another shot of the BoBunny Kraft Wood Shapes coming out of the top of the vase.


Here you can see the purple liquid pearls and Waterfall stickles I used on her dress. I also used some pink stickles on her headband.


Here you can see I used some Waterfall Stickles and some bling from my stash to dress up her shoes.


Along the edges of the tag I used Nuvo Crystal Drops- Metallic Bright Gold and  Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint:  Opal Magic Green Gold 


Here is another look at the full tag including some ribbon from my stash.
