"It's A Boy" ~Scraps Of Darkness~

Hi Sweet Friends, Today I'm excited to share a Design Team project for Scraps Of Darkness's January Kit "Karen's Valentine".  Melinda has decided to name a kit after each of us designers and this month is mine and it's a beauty!!  It's full of wonderful Bo Bunny "Star-Crossed" papers along with the beautiful Carta Bella "Love Song" papers.  The colors are just perfect for some steampunk or vintage projects!!  This is a 10 x 10 canvas from the creativity add-on kit.  I used the Bo Bunny "Star-Crossed" papers in a background collage.  I dry-brushed lots of gesso around the canvas along with some drywall tape here and there for some texture.  Thanks so much for this wonderful signature kit this month Mel..you are a pleasure to work for!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

"Picking Up Santa" ~Scraps Of Darkness"

Hi Everyone, This evening I'm sharing another Design Team project for Scraps Of Darkness using the beautiful December kit "Northern Lights".  For this layout I used the beautiful Bo Bunny papers along with the Moxxie papers from the kit.  I randomly sprinkled some of the Fran's Encrusted jewels (A Spoonful Of Sugar) around the page that sparkle and looks just like snow on the page!  I used one of the Blue Fern chipboard pieces from the kit for the title which I sprayed with the Lindy's Stamp Gang "Jassy Purple"  mist from the color add-on kit.  This is a photo of my Grandson Ethan last year when we took a ride on the "Polar Express" train to pick up Santa in the woods outside of town, they had so much fun!





Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy and are inspired to get one of these awesome kits and create some wonderful Christmas memories for your family!
