Scraps of Darkness Design Team Reveal

It's reveal day for the designers at Scraps of Darkness and I have ALOT to share so grab a cup of whatever you drink and take a peek.

I've got just a peek of the kit here in this photo. To see the kit in it's entirety hop on over to Scraps of Darkness and have a look at all the awesome add on's you can get to go with this!

I've already shared my sketch for Scraps of Darkness so now I'm playing along with Bo Bunny and sharing a layout I created based on their June sketch.
This photo is of our famous berry picking day and I grabbed this cool digital triangle template you can find here. It comes with different sizes so you can use it on a larger scale.

This page has lots of layers and misting.I like to cut up my die cuts and journal spots and use them in my layering process.

The vines are a Spellbinders Die and I just inked it a bit with distress ink and sprayed it with a shimmerz spray. I mixed in some flowers along with my hand made one. The stars are chipboard stars from Gina's Designs. 

I used the cool shimmerz texture on the stars. They look really beautiful in real life.

Here is a little close up - some cheesecloth tucked in.

My next project is a mini album so fair warning it is photo heavy!

This is a chipboard star mini album from Gina's Designs. I used this and another one of Gina's chippees called "Heidi's Stars"

On the outside cover I first painted gesso over and then used a heat tool to dry it. I then went over it with a red shade of magical micas and I then dried it again with the heat tool but only to tackiness. I went over it with a paintbrush dipped in crackle and because it wasn't fully dry it smeared the colored a bit and exposed some of the gesso. I really liked how  it came out.

My stars were sprayed with more of Lindys mists and Shimmerz. I just spray different colors until I like the effect.

The fun part comes with all the pages.
I used some of Gina's Designs glassine bags and layered the Bo Bunny die cuts.

I printed out a free vintage 4th of July image. Love little bits and bobs to add to my albums.

I created a little fold out page with a hinge on one of the stars. I used a Bo Bunny die cut that I cut in half and covered the B side too.

I have also left lots of space for photos. I like to cut a spellbinders die for the photo mat.

Little tags are tucked in the bags. The glassine bags are folded in half and you can slip a little photo or treasure of sorts in there.

Our kits come with Mandy's signature pins and I just cut the top off and adhered it to embellish my star here.
The back cover has a little Bingo card attached with a sweet little paperclip.

If you made it this far through the post I salute you! Thanks for sticking with me. 

till next time
CYA :)

First, Happy 4th of July!!! Wow, your layout is fabulous-talk about patriotic-it's spectacular. Love love love your mini album too. Lots of good ole American goodness in that beautiful piece of work. I am smitten with your technique you used to do your chipboard star embellishments and the spray on the doilies is awesome. Fabulous work my friend!
Bear Hugs,
