Scraps of Darkness Design Team Reveal!!!

It's Reveal Day again, and there is a lot going on at Scraps of Darkness! Before I get started with the reveal of our January kit  I wanted to share some news that we are really excited about.
We are expecting a new baby! No noone here is pregnant!  As far as I know---but Scraps of Darkness is going to have a new little sister
On February 1st, we will reveal a new line of kits,
 Scraps of Elegance.
These kits will be a little different from what you are used to seeing from Scraps of Darkness, and we are honored to have a very talented surprise guest designer who will be helping us to show off our first Scraps of Elegance kit. In addition to that (as if that isn't a lot!), we'll be having a blog hop to kick it all off, so set your calendar's to stop back on February 1, 2012!

And now on to the SOD reveal!

Scraps of Darkness January Design Team Reveal!!!

Be sure to stop by the Scrap of Darkness blog today to see how you can win this months kit!!!

This months kit is like a breath of fresh air to brighten up those dull grey winter days. Beautiful Graphic 45, Pink Paislee and Authentique papers. This combined with Tim Holtz, Prima, Petaloo and our fabulous "Color Add On" are sure to bring sunshine into your life and chase away the winter blues.

My first layout is based, as always on our talented artist, Charlottes sketch for us this month.


I have a new passion for scrapping images that are not of my kids. My work is more about art and having fun than it is about documenting memories. This mermaid image I purchased from  A Rose Without A Thorn

I added some sparkle and whimsy to my cut out beach lady with stickles and shells that were included in the kit. I added a piece of acrylic with stamping and embossing. It give it a really cool sea splash look. The pin is one of Mandys always in our kits. I trimmed mine down and topped off the acrylic with it.
I used a beautiful Dusty Attic Chippee on this that can be found in the Scraps of Darkness Shoppe. I misted the chipboard with Lindys Starburst Mist. We also get an awesome selection of color in the color add on. I also used alcohol inks around the edge of my page to get that water splashed look. The flowers are Heartfelt Creations Stamps.

Beach Babe

My next project is an altered canvas. I used the reverse side of a regular stretched canvas purchased at Michaels. This canvas had a wide wood frame on the back. I used my Ranger distress stains to color the wood.
Here is a close up. I cut the fish out of one of the papers and used black glitter glue and glam to make them special. The blue flowers they are floating on are Inkadoo stamps that I also used stickles on.
There is a piece of Dusty Attic Chippee covered in acrylic paint and diamond dust. The Sea horse, Starfish and Sandollar were all in the kit!

This is just a look at the back of the canvas. I used acrylic paint and distress stain on it.


This is a fun layout I did of my husband and I. We went to Hawaii a REALLY REALLY long time ago! I did a lot of fussy cutting and stamping on this layout.
Just a few close ups.

Lifes an Adventure
This is a photo of my oldest daughter when she was a youngster! I thought I would put the flowers in this kit to work this month. I combined them with some Tim Holtz Tattered florals and some flowers from last months kit.
The blue die cut vines are a new love from Cheery Lynn designs. The green ferns are a die cut from Heartfelt Creations. I used liquid pearls for my dots around the page edge. I also used stickle on the leaves and flourishes on the frame around the edge.

I hope you enjoyed this months reveal! Please be sure to stop by Scraps of Darkness to view this wonderful kit and see what the other designers have created this month!
