First Reveal - Sindis Summer Day

Hello Friends! Today I have my first layout to share created with the June SOD kit "Sindi's Summer Day"
This is vibrant kit filled with gorgeous pinks, blues, yellows and greens!
If you love color then this one is for you!

Melinda always put a dreamy kit together and this one is no exception. She is truly talented at pairing up the perfect papers and creating versatility within a kit.

You can find our kits-------here

I wanted to do something different than what you would expect with a kit of this nature so I went in a shabby chic direction. I had been off in a mixed media direction with my work- very grungy with splatters and paper tearing but honestly I get bored with any one style for long periods of time. It took me a bit to decide what direction to go with this one but I think I nailed it! :)

Dreamer Layout created by Lisa Novogrodski for Scraps of Darkness using Sindis Summer Day Kit

This beautiful photo is courtesy of "Ali Brown Photography" she has an etsy shop with gorgeous newborn items you can find it here. Her website is here.

I used the BoBunny "Sweet Life" paper in the background. I kept my mixed media work to a minimum. I just did a little stenciling with paste and some splatters with the Marion Smith Color Lab Sparkling Pigments! These are just gorgeous and are in the Color Add On in our kits!

The beautiful summery ice cream colors of these florals make me swoon! Love the mix of Prima and Petalaoo. With the exception of a few tiny roses all were in our kits Floral Add On.

I used some chipboard from my stash- Scrap FX  and Dusty Attic. I used the Marion Smith Sparkling Pigments to paint the chipboard then I embossed in areas with Lindy's Byzantine Bronze.

The leaves are stamps and die cuts from Heartfelt Creations. The die is "Decorative Flower Pot" you can find it ---- here and the matching stamp---here

I also added some book pages torn up and inked for a vintage effect. 

Thanks a bunch for stopping by. Don't forget we have a facebook community with lots of fun happenings! You can find us-----here

BoBunny Tags with Juliet

Hello Friends! 

One of my favorite items to create are tags. I could create tags and nothing else...well maybe ATC's. I love them as well. I love to see how layered and detailed I can make a small space. 
Maybe I'll give up designing just so I can do what I want all the time! LOL

Onward- I 've used one of the newest releases from BoBunny called "Juliet" and of course I chose the grungier side of it. I love the blues and tans and the ability this color combo has to become vintage and grungy all at the same time.

I did make this shabby as well. Lot's of styles thrown into this piece. Little bits of eyelash yarn on the tie with lace and ribbon.

In the background I have layered in one of the newest dies from BoBunny. This one is the Ornate Frame. You can find the BoBunny dies and collections here.

I created the Rosette flowers which are my new favorite. You will be seeing these a lot in upcoming posts. They are easy to create and mix well with other florals. I used the new chipboard Butterflies from BoBunny. I coated it in Pearlescents first then embossed it in areas with Lindys embossing powder. I added some micro beads to this butterfly and tag for a special touch.

The back of both tags were covered in a book page and stitched around the edges. The back of this one has a touch of masking.

This is another tag I created with the Juliet papers. More layers of flowers, die cuts and leaves.

Once again I painted my butterfly with pearlescents and then embossed with Lindys. More micro beads were added to this one as well.

I love to alter the BoBunny Blossoms to suit my style. I usually take the center out for a smaller flower to use in another spot.  Then I create my own center for remaining petals. Here I used stamping and a little button.

I love to create! It makes me happy. I hope you find some inspiration here and go off and create some beautiful tags of your own!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Boardwalk Mini Album - BoBunny

Hello Friends!

I'm up on the BoBunny Blog today with and Wallet Mini Album I created with the "Boardwalk" Collection.

This is a fun summer collection perfect for those beach photos!

I followed a tutorial on youtube to create this and you can find it here

This mini album has a lot to it! I am posting some of the photos here and the rest are on the BoBunny blog.

This is a close up of the album cover. I used some star fish shells and added lots of texture with cheesecloth and frayed twined.

On the left side of the album is a pocket and there is a pull out piece tucked inside. I embellished it with a lighthouse and little masking and tied it all up in twine.

This is the inside of the pull piece. You can put photos or other memorabilia!

The center of the album has a waterfall section. On the front side I used some of the journaling cards and sayings included in the BoBunny Boardwalk Pattern Papers. On the other side I used a Misc. Me journaling page and cut it down to use as a photo mat or journal spot.

On the back page there is another cover that I embellished with another light house and mixed media elements. The back page has a ton of pockets and tags. You can find photos of it on the BoBunny Blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
