It's Reveal Day at Scraps of Darkness July's Kit

This month's kit here at Scraps of Darkness is called "Marrakesh Express".  It's beautiful and full of gem colored papers by Christine Adolph through Creative Imaginations.  The add-ons are full of beautiful Prima with stencils and canvas mediums to use, so fun!!!  Mandy "CraftySprinkles" made us a beautiful stick pin to match the kit and "Suepup" made a beautiful sketch for our challenge.  Get on over to Scraps of Darkness to get your kit before they fly out the door!!!

Marrakesh Express Sketch Challenge

This is my take on our July Sketch by "Suepup".   This month's kit at Scraps of Darkness is called The Marrakesh Express and Mel has put together another beautiful kit!!  This month features some very pretty and colorful papers by Christine Adolph through Creative Imaginations.  The kit and add-ons are just beautiful jewel colors and tons of Prima flowers!!!

This is a photo of my hubby back in 1988 when he was sailing with some friends.  They sailed in Austrarlia and then on to Bali.  That's him on the left in his sarong on the sailboat.  I used the beautiful Lumnarte shimmering watercolors to alter the chipboard and Dusty Attic border.  For the bordering circles I used the Shimmerz  Paint (Mama Sings the Blues and Mon Shari) to mist the orange papers.  The Prima Flowers ( Shalimar Col Amia) I used on the border.  I also used the beautiful jewel pieces from Prima (Candy Gems Jelly Bean) included in the kit.  I can't remember where I got the chipboard from, sorry but I used the Lumnarte shimmer paints on those too.   The stones that are scattered around the layout are some gorgeous opals that my hubby picked up on his travels while sailing and I thought they were a nice touch!  After he showed them to me and let me use them I found them in my jewelry box!!  He's the best!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!!

The Third Sea ~~Scraps Of Darkness~~

This is another layout using our July kit at Scraps Of Darkness called The Marrakesh Express.  It's full of beautiful papers by Christine Adolph through Creative Imaginations.  This kit just gorgeous!!  This is another photo of my husband while he was sailing with his friend Harold Stephens and his 71 ft. twin masted schooner called The Third Sea.  You can go online and read about it.  I love the jewel colors and this one had some blues that I brought out with this layout.  The butterflies came from Renea (Reneabouquets)  that she got online for us to compliment the kit!!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I really hope you enjoy!!  Happy Scrapping!!


This is another layout using our beautiful July kit called  "Marrakeash Express" with some beautiful Christine Adolph papers from Creative Imaginations.  They are so fun and  colorful and full of beautiful Prima products to accent them with!!  This is a photo of Kutut, a friend my hubby made in Bali  during his sailing adventures back in 1988.  He is a wonderful man and Jack will never forget him.  I did a lot of border punching  using a Martha Stewart punch and layering to get a feel for the area he was traveling in.  I really had fun using the Luminare  Shimmer Paints to accent the chipboard and papers with a little gold!  The flower is from Prima's Mistables Canvas line.  I cut out the flower and used the Prima Mask from the kit and misted that.  I really like how that turned out.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!!
