Dear Diary - Scraps of Darkness

This months kit titled "Passages" has inspired me with so many ideas I can't seem to scrap fast enough to get them all down!

This one titled "Dear Diary" is a photo of my daughter once again taken by my dear friend Gina Copplino..

 To start with I altered the hues in the photo. My daughters hat was hot pink. Then I used a Florabella texture over it. (Tutorial on how to add textures to your photo found here) I elected not to erase any of the texture off the subject (my dd) I just lighted the opacity (pse talk) and let the texture stay over it. I REALLY love how that looks. I added the date rub on that was in our kits to the photo.
 Every month the kits seem to inspire certain themes and punches for me. This month it's the stamp look.
I also had picked up that torn notebook punch and put it to good use here.
 I used packaging on this layout. The cardboard is the box the kit came in, painted in a white acrylic then masked with the brick wall mask that came in the color add on. I inked the edges in the Donna Salazar brown mixed media ink. The flower in the bottom corner was created with an old Donna Salazar newpaper I had on hand. I created the envelope from a prima package and the red tag from the Teresa Collins package.

 Stay tuned. You haven't seen the last of this kit yet!!!
