This picture is of my wonderful nephew Bryce! Wasn't he looking dapper!! I love the woodsy feel of the page with the garden of flowers at the bottom.



Here are a few closeups.... I love stencil work... here you can see the stencil from Stencil Girl that is under the photo and peeks out of the top.




I used a little cheesecloth  and some beautiful chipboard.






Below I used the new metal works from Ken Oliver. I think that is so cool.

Here is my take on her sketch. I just had to use these photos of my niece. Her and her daddy planted their own flower garden. She loved it.



Here are some close ups:

You can take a look at the kit and the add on's here at our store: Scraps of Darkness.

I made a set of 3 tags.

Here are the tags:





Below I will show you close ups and from the base up what I did.
Here I layered a piece of Graphic 45 darker in color and then a lighter green from the Graphic 45 on top. I distressed the edges and inked them in green. I watered down the gesso to give a light whitewash on the tag.



Here you can see I used some sprays  and let them drip. I also used some archival ink and used some Prima stamps to accent the tags.






Here you can see I used some modeling paste and then sprayed some ink and then spritzed it with water to get it to trickle around.





 Here I used some filler beads to lightly decorate the modeling paste.





Here are some close ups of my tags. I did sprinkle some paste on the tops of the flowers. Here I used a Heidi Swapp die: lovely. I used the Graphic 45 paper.

 In the above and below you can see I used some some thread to give accents.





Here you can see the beautiful doily I used in the corner. I tucked in some flowers around the larger flowers.

Here you can see more stamping.




 In the picture above and below you can see I used a blue piece and below a red piece in the center of the doily. I also used a green piece on the third tag.

A wall hanging using September Blush Kit from Scraps of Darkness

Here I am back again with another item I made with the awesome papers from the September Kit Blush from Scraps of Darkness. I decided to make a canvas/wall hanging.




The Prima Rossibelle Collection is really nice and versatile. I really wanted to show the awesome brick work on the paper and leave it transparent.


Here are some close ups.. you can see the paint splatters I sprinkled across the canvas.



Here's the right side of the canvas. 


I used a Heidi Swapp die for the word Bliss and then used some Ken Oliver Color Bursts to make it purple.



Another shot....







Here is my Canvas/Wall Hanging. I'm attaching a tab on the back so I can hang it in my office.










Make sure to check out the Scraps of Darkness store for any add on's that might still be available.

LOVE THIS a layout from September Kit Blush (SOD)

I've been so enjoying my September kit from Scraps of Darkness called Blush, featuring Prima Rossibelle Collection. 




Below is my layout titled LOVE THIS. I wanted to do an older picture of my sister and I. It was a good day and we were being silly.

I think these papers went so well with it.

First you can see in this picture I used some Creative Embellishments Chipboard for this page. I altered it by painting it with some Tim Holtz Distress Stains. Then I painted some Shimmerz - Inklinz Watercolors on top. I did use a light purple on the left end.




Here you can see some modeling past I put to the left of the layers and just lightly went over it with some Tim Holtz ink and then some Shimmerz - Inklinz Watercolors in a seafoam green color.





Here were a cluster of flowers I used from the Prima Rossibelle Collection and just lightly kissed them with some Shimmerz - Inklinz Watercolors.



Here I added another accent with modeling paste and Shimmerz - Inklinz Watercolors.


In the top left I used the Tim Holtz stencil and ink and some modeling paste and lightly grazed the top with some Shimmerz - Inklinz Watercolors . I also wanted to use some Prima bling to jazz up the page.


Here's a step back from the top left corner so you can see the bling and stencil work. I did separate the flower from the bling assortment.


Here you can see the final layout. I worked heavy on the top corner so it curved up a little. Have you found that happening to you?  I enjoyed working with the Prima Rossibelle Collection
