    White Magic


Today is the day SCRAPS OF DARKNESS is revealing the GORGEOUS January kit "White Magic!!!!"  I just love the name  (that alone inspires me) never mind all the gorgeous goodies Melinda put together.  This kit is jammed packed with beautiful Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology and Websters Hollywood Vogue! I was able to create 5 layouts and I still have plenty left over for another couple of projects!!!!
Top that off with some jewels, stars, bling, feathers, flowers and some awesome mists and glimmer glaze!!!! I had such a fabulous time creating with this kit and I know you will too! 

Each month we have sketch challenge over at Scraps of Darkness. This months sketch by our very talented designer Mandy a/k/a Craftysprinkles does not disappoint!
Here is my take on Mandy's sketch! I combined the Pink Paislee resist paper with the Websters! I inked my resist with a mossy green distress ink. I love to fussy cut Websters and create a whole new look with their papers. I also love to layer as you can see! We got some beautiful rub on's and jewels in this kit and I think I used every bit of them up! This is a photo of my neice and nephew when they were little. They are teenagers now.
 This next layout is a photo of my girls and I taken by my friend Gina. I altered her original photo in photoshop and I added a snowflake texture to it. I have a full tutorial on how to use textures in PSE here. Check it out so you can try this fun technique yourself!
Again, I inked my resist paper in the beautiful broken china Distress ink. That gorgeous crystal vine came in the Scraps of Darkness kit along with the yummy white flowers. I cut the vines and flower centers on my cuttlebug using sizzix and TH tattered floral die. I used the Tattered Angel glaze that was this months add mists add on. It gave those blue vines and awesome look. I also added some diamond dust for a icy feel to this wintery layout.

Lately I have been into cutting my photos up and giving my project a magical fantasy look.
 Again I combined my Pink Paislee and Websters! This kit is so versitile and the papers work so beautifully together!  We received the beautiful flowers, jewels and feathers in the kit! I really adore those Tim Holtz ribbons! Those little bloomers are a wonderful size! You could mist yours to any color you like but I really loved the pop of the white on my layouts!

There are so many fun things you can do with photos to blend your photos with whatever your vision is for a page. In this next layout I took a photo of my daughter that was taken by my friend Gina and I put it on a magazine cover! If you google "photo fun" you will find a ton of sites where you can upload a photo and print it out on their design. I uploaded my photo, then downloaded it to my computer so I could adjust the colors in my PSE to go with my papers!
 I love purple and this time i used the Websters as a sheet! LOL I did a lot of misting and used the Tattered Angels Stencils that were part of our kit. I also used a ton of rub on's and Mandy's gorgeous stickpin. All part of the amazing "White Magic" kit!

This final layout is of my Mother and I on my Wedding Day 25 years ago!!!!! 

   Another example of how I combined the Websters and Pink Paislee! I really enjoyed working with all the mists and inking my pages. Those corner pieces are Dusty Attic and are another goodie you'll find in this Magical kit! You can really let your creativity flow with these papers!
I made the flowers you see on this layout.  I am going to call them "Antique Mums" and will be providing a tutorial on how to do these! Stay tuned...
