Scraps Of Darkness Design Team Reveal Day

"Food, Family, Fireworks….The Four Best "F" Words Ever"--Unknown

Hi Everyone, So it's finally reveal day here at Scraps of Darkness and this is another DT project that I did using the gorgeous June's "Firecracker" kit!!   These are a couple of photos of my scrapping buddie Hona and her daughter having some fun last summer on the lake.  I used the Bo Bunny "Anthem" collection along with the gold papers from the Glitz "Sunshine Of My Soul" Collection.  I love using the overlays on the photos, really accented the golds in the photos.  I also used some Tim Holtz stamps along with some Lumenire paint to splatter around.  The metal piece is from Maya Road and the metal flag is from the old Bo Bunny "Anthem" collection that I layered on the metal piece.

The Chipboard is from Imaginarium Designs and is some of the new Chevrons of all sizes, just love them!!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!

And here's my third project for this month's "Firecracker" kit.  For this layout I used the Bo Bunny "Anthem" paper collection from the kit.  This is card that we received froma a cause we donate to and I thought it was perfect for this kit.  I used some of the Bo Bunny Anthem stickers and die cuts from the kit to do a lot of layering.  I also made the Rossettes from my Tim Holtz Die Cut and used some Bo Bunny Metal pieces on top of them.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!

Imaginarium Designs Reveal Day

Hello Everyone, Today I have 3 DT projects to share with you.  I decided to go a little vintage with a couple of them and a little whimsy with the other, so fun.

Here's my first project, using the beautiful Graphic 45 "Kraft Reflections" paper collection.  This is a photo of my friend's girls which I altered in Photoshop by adding some texture and then giving it a vintage feel.  The Imaginarium Designs Chipboard is the large Steampunk Clock (IDS0030), one of my favorites!!

To alter the Imaginarium Designs chipboard I inked both pieces with Tim Holtz "Walnut Stain" ink and then added a couple of Antique Brass Brads along with a couple of small stickers from the G45 collection.

For my second project I went alittle whimsy using the Prima Pixie Glen & Romantique paper collections.  This is a photo of my niece's daughter Madison.  I did a lot of layering and popped up some of the pieces.  The Imaginarium Design pieces were the Florish 1 and Variations (IDT00030)
to add here and there in the cluster on the bottom left side of the layout.

To alter the Imaginarium Designs chipboard "Flourish 1 and Variations" (IDT0003) I first gessoed them and then inked them with Tim Holtz "Walnut Stain".  After that dried I decided to use some Lindy's Stamping Gang's "Golden Lump Ocoal".

And for my third project I went a little vintage again since it's my favorite.  This is a photo of my hairdresser's little sweetie.  Again I altered the photo in Photoshop using some texture and vintage feel to it.  I used the awesome Prima "Printery" paper collection.  I had this awesome rusty key that I just couldn't resist using.  Again I did a lot of layering and aging of the paper.

To alter the Imaginarium Chipboard pieces "Oval Frame" (IDFL0002) that I cut in half, and the "Thistles Board" (IDS0025) I first painted them with Folk Art "Parchment" paint.  After that dried I inked the pieces with Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" and then inked the edges with Tim Holtz's  "Walnut Stain".  Then I stamped them with a postal stamp that I used randomly in the layout for something different.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!  Don't forget to go to and leave a comment on my post to be entered to win some beautiful chipboard!!!
