Scraps of Darkness "Blush" Portrait Painting

Hello Friends
Today I am sharing a portrait painting I created with the September Scraps of Darkness Kit titled "Blush"
You can find this kit and all others here in the Scraps of Darkness Online Store.

I drew the portrait in graphite then painted it in a combination of acrylic paints, Colored Pencils, Prima Oil Pastels found in a past Scraps of Darkness kit, Prima Watercolor Confections found in the Creativity Add On here. The headpiece on this portrait was created by fussy cutting the florals and leaves from the Rossibelle papers found in the kit. The background was primed in gesso then after the portrait was painted I went over it again with gesso in a more textured way by using a thicker coat and brushstrokes. Finally I used the Prima Watercolor Confections in the background in pink and brown. I finished off this piece with some Gold Mica Flakes scattered in the background.

Thanks for stopping in!

Scraps of Darkness Reveal 2- September Blush Kit

Sharing my second layout created with September Kit "Blush" from Scraps of Darkness. You can find this and all our kits here.  
I was inspired by the Prima Vintage Emporium paper in the kit and decided to do a grungy vintage layout. The photo is one Tim Holtz found relatives. I photocopied the card and make a photo. This way I have the original to use again. ;)

I painted some masking tape and used that torn up along the edges.

We received a gorgeous Antique Gold Embossing Powder by Blue Fern Studios in the Color Add On here. I painted some chipboard with Art Anthology in a brown tone then embossed with the Blue Fern Powder. It gives it a wonderful textured antique effect.

I used some of the Prima Rossibelle chipboard found in the Elements Add On here and mixed it in.

I created a layout with these beautiful papers found in the paper add on. I used a combination of the Prima Rossibelle and Kaisercraft Treasured Moments.  I used lots of layering and fussy cutting techniques.
