Mother and Child ~~Scraps of Darkness November Round Robin~~
It's my turn to reveal my take on the November Round Robin at Scraps of Darkness!! I'm on Team 3, started by the ever talented CMomGo (Cheryl) and am following Witchymama (Sugar)!! This was such a fun layout to do as I haven't done any corset work in awhile now. This is a beautiful photo of my niece Zara and her little one Madi. I used my Scraps of Darkness November kit "Purple Haze". It's such a diverse kit and so fun to create with! I did some layering and used a beautiful technique called Twisted Lacing by Natasha at Moments of Tranquility for the corset lacing. I wanted to do a torn frame around the photo like Witchymama did, but just couldn't get it right so I used an old page from an antique book that I had lying around along with some Dusty Attic chippies and some mini scroll type frames and the top and bottom. For the Dusty Attic pieces I first painted them with the white Gesso and then sprinkled some Shimerz Enamels-Molten Metal Sparkliscious. The frame for the small photo is from Prima's Resin Collection. I hope you all have a wonderful week. I'm looking forward to receiving my new December kit from Scraps of Darkness and also working on some new Steampunk Wall Art that I will have for sale in my Esty Shop soon!!
