Scraps of Darkness!! Our June kit is called "Welcome To The Jungle" and is just full of beautiful and fun animal prints and beautiful papers from BoBunny. This kit included some metal embellies , stickers, and some Tim Holtz Distress Crackle paint and Distress Ink (Crushed Olive). We also were given some Tim Holtz Distress Stains (Wild Honey & Antique Linen) to try out along with some very cool and very thick die cuts called Art Parts by Studio 490. There's some beautiful Prima borders and Petaloo floral embellies. There also is some Stickles (Paprika). Here's a photo of some of the papers and extras that Mel put together for another very unique and fun kit to work with!!! Hope you enjoy my work with it!!! Thanks for stopping by!!
Scraps of Darkness. It's such a fun kit for children layouts!! For this layout I layered a couple of bg papers and inked them with Tim Holtz (Crushed Olive). I then took a round piece of cardboard (from my pizza) and distressed it. Then I applied some Gesso and sprayed some Glimmer Mist (Pumpkin) and some Crushed Olive and Rusty Hinge ink. I also added a little Ranger Archival Black ink with a paint brush. For the Dusty Attic Skelton Clock Face I Gessoed the entire chipboard and then used some Perfect Pearls "Heirloom Gold" to spray randomly. For the thick chipboard leaves I first inked it with Tim Holtz (Crushed Olive). I then stamped them with a script stamp using Tim Holtz's Distress Embossing Ink and Ranger Archival Black and then sprayed them with some Goosebumps Texture Spray. I also inked and sprayed the KaiserCraft Alphas in the same way. I also used the beautiful stick pin that Mandy aka CraftySprinkles made for this mont's kit. This was a fun one to do, using some new techniques!! Hope you enjoy, thanks for stopping by!!!
Scraps of Darkness is full of BoBunny's Zoology Collection and went perfect with these photos I thought. For this page I used the following Zoology papers: Wild Thing & Tiger. I also used some of the cut-outs and stickers that were included in the kit. I topped a couple of the flowers from Prima (Eminence Collection) with some metal trinkets included with the kit. The Prima "Flowered Tendrils Tangerine went really well with this lo. I also used the Petaloo Floral Embellies (Darjeeling Collection) that came in the kit and stamped them with an old grid stamp using the Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Crushed Olive) to match the title cutout. The leaves were from Art Parts by Studio 490. First I painted them with some Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint (Peeled Paint) and let that dry. Then I pressed some Tim Holtz Distress Stain (Wild Honey). After that dried a little I sprayed the entire leave with some Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray. For the title I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Crushed Olive) and topped that with some Stickles (Paprika) along with the small dragonflies. For the circle border I used Lisa's (StarSailor's) method using a Martha Stewart corner punch. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!! Thanks so much for all your sweet comments, it's much appreciated!!
