Heritage Album ~Scraps Of Darkness~

Hi Sweet Friends,  Hope you're all enjoying a relaxing Sunday.  Today I'm sharing another Design Team project with you for Scraps Of Darkness.  For this project I used the combination of all the papers from March's kit "Michell's Mechnical Madness".  I decided to make a Heritage Foto File Album using one of Kathy Ortas tutorials.  It's loaded with tons of areas for photos along with areas for beautiful patterend papers from the kit.  Here's some fotos of the cover and inside pages of the right hand side of the album...there is an identical left hand side of the album..for both sides of your family.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!

"From LeipZig With Love" ~Scraps Of Darkness~

Hi Sweet Friends, Today I'm sharing another DT project for Scraps Of Darkness using the amazing March Kit "Michelle's Mechanical Madness".  For this layout I used an image that I just love by Niveau0 of Deviantart.Com with her permission which I altered using a Tim Holtz background and some stamping from a photo editor.







For this project I used the beautiful Prima "The Archivist" paper collection from the kit.  I also used the TCW "Radar Remnant" stencil along with the Prima "Lace" stencil from the kit and applied some  Tim Holtz Vintage Photo.  I used alot of the Mica Tiles from the kit to give the layout a vintage and aged look.  I cut and inked the edges with the Vintage Photo ink and placed them randomly around the center of the layout.  I also did some fussy cutting of items from "The Archivist" 3x4 Note Cards from the kit along with the Prima Metal Trinket & Alphas using the S for Steampunk.  To alter the metal and Blue Fern Studio Gears I first painted them with some Lumiere (Metallic Rust) and then applied both with Tim Holtz's Alcohol Inks...Slate and Aged Bronze.  I used some washi tape randomly and stamped with a wire style stamp.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!

"Now Is The Time" Canvas ~Scraps Of Darkness~

Hi Sweet Friends, Today I'm sharing another Design Team Project with you using Scraps Of Darkness's fantastic March Kit 'Michelle's Mechanical Madness".  For this project I used the 5 x 7 Artist's Canvas from the Creativity Add-On Kit.  I used paper from the Kaisercraft "Betsy's Couture Collection from the kit for the background that I distressed with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink.  I then used the Prima 6 x 6 stencil "Lace" with some Studio 490 Wendy Vechi "Metallic Gold Embossing Paste, before that could dry I applied Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder "Cleopatra's Copper" and then dried.  I then stamped the Prima Finnabair "Now Is The Time" stamp onto the canvas.  I then colored in some areas of the stamp with Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens "Copper, Gold, and Silver.  For the Blue Fern Studio Cog and Gears chipboard I first inked them with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Vintage Photo.  I then sprayed them with the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst "Cajun Carnelian Red" from the kit.  After sprayed the piece split into several pieces which I loved because I was able to take a layer and add it flush to the canvas and wrap it around the edges..perfect.  I also used the Petaloo Botanica Collection flowers and the Prima Say It In Crystals "The Archivist" collection brads to finish it off.
