The Tree ~~Scraps of Darkness~~

This is some Design Team work using our new September "Passages" kit here at Scraps Of Darkness!!  It's a fun kit full of Bo Bunny's "Et Cetera" Line and some beautiful Teresa Collins "World Traveler" Line papers.  This layout is my take on our Sketch Challenge using our talented "Suepups" wonderful sketch.  The photos are of my 2 youngest dgs, Ethan and Elias on our walk in the grove last weekend.  I titled it "The Tree" because it was an old redwood that had been burnt in the bottom and the kids always walk in it and play around, soooo…we thought they'd love it.  Right when I snapped this photo I said "Why don't you guys go inside", will Ethan (on the left) just stopped in his tracks and was not about to go in there, and his face shows it, lol!!  But Elias (2) went right in!!

I started with a Bo Bunny paper and the layered some red cardstock and inked it with some Mixed Media (Leather) that came with the color add-on for the kit.  On the third layer I used the fun Prima "Brick Wall" Mask and used some Mixed Media (Black), also in the kit and add-ons.  The buttons are also from Prima and perfect for a little guys layout!!  In the upper right I used a method I learned from Natasha.  What you do is take a wet q-tip and rub it back and forth until the paper rips apart.  Then I inked it and used some islets to secure the pieces together.  I did add a little to much black ink, but it was my first try, lol!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!
