Hello and Welcome to my Blog!!!
If this is your first time here I am soooo happy to have you!
I've got quite a heavy photo load today so grab a cup of whatever your guilty pleasure is and enjoy!
My second reveal for Scraps of Darkness Kit Club has arrived! I am sharing a "TAG AND BAG MINI ALBUM" created with the September kit
Tanya's Industrial Odyssey!
In case you have never visited our site before you can see our kits and store right
This beautiful kit is filled with some Marion Smith and Kaisercraft!
Both favorites of mine. :)
I was inspired by a tutorial Steph Miller did you can find it here on youtube.
I used her guide for creating the bags! You can tuck things into the top of the bag and I also created a little pocket at the bottom for more treasures!
My front and back covers are 4 x 6 chipboard that I coated in black gesso. This is different than my other tag mini's where I usually use a tag for the front and back.
I used both the Marion Smith Time Keeper Collection and Kaisercraft Time Machine Collection for my papers. We also get a gorgeous selection of cardstock to match in our kits and I've used that as my base on some of the pages. The florals are found in the kit - Prima Debutante, Archivist and Sunrise/Sunset. I used the Prima Mechanicals as well and painted them with Ranger patinas found in last months kit. I also embossed them with Lindys - Scotch Broom Yellow and Midnight Bronze.
We received these super fun stamps called
"Steampunk Selfie" by Brett Weldele.
You can find the CREATIVITY ADD ON ------- HERE
I USED PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING IN IT THIS MONTH!
This is found in the Creativity Add On of the kit. I used Lindys Midnight Bronze embossing powder found in the Color Add On on the image and painted it with the gelatos found in the Creativity. I used the gold for painting the image and then used both the gold and black gelatos to splatter all my pages.
This is one of the bags. I love how the top folds down. I like to use die cuts on my albums. I'm not a big fan of square pieces. I just can't keep it simple!
I also like to dry emboss my die cuts to make them more interesting and well...pretty! I added in some sentiments that were part of the Kaisercraft collection. These can be used for journaling or as photo mats. I leave them without photos because I sell most of my creations in my etsy shop. :)
I've been on a mission to include things from my stash in my projects. My stash is vast! This vintage image is something I had on hand and thought it would lend a nice touch to the album.
More tags alternating with kraft tags found in the kit with my stamped images! I love it!
The possibilities for the Brett Weldele stamps are endless. From vintage to art journaling. I would love to see what you come up with for ideas!
The Prima chipboard was also in the kit. I used it to frame an image found in the Time Keeper collection. The random stamping was done with the Kaisercraft Flutter stamp found in the kit.
My back cover is chipboard coated in gesso then embellished with Prima florals and a Dusty Attic Clock. The gold ribbon peeking out was also in the kit and is May Arts Gold Metallic Crochet Ribbon.
Thank you A TON for stopping in! I appreciate the visit and your kind comments.
