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.
