Hello Blog Friends!
I have another reveal layout to share today featuring the October Kit from Scraps of Darkness Called "Danse Macabre"
This kit features Halloween Collections by Graphic 45, Authentique and Carta Bella...
You can find this kit and all our kits as well as store items ------- HERE
I started out by using a cardboard base. I found a stack of Corrugate at AC Moore by DCWV. I find this makes it easier than tearing up boxes and trying to peel away the paper to reveal the corrugate beneath it. I first painted on some clear gesso to the cardboard then misted with Lindys Flat Fabio in Greased Lightnin Green and Lindys Starburst in Dark Chocolate Truffle. I heat dried then painted on Lumiere in Gold. The "Greased Lightnin" was included in the color add on for the kit you can find it ---- here
The background papers are Graphic 45 - "Rare Oddities" and "Cabinet of Curiosities"
I used what you would consider the B side of each. I punched the edges and inked them then bent them in gently for a distressed look. It seems once I get into a style/ trend I'll do it until I "do it to death." If you have been a follower of mine you will note I was into a grungy mixed media style for awhile. Paper tearing and messy stamping... I'm bored with that now. :)
We always receive a gorgeous selection of flowers in our floral add on ---- take a peek ---- Here
The very large purple flower has been in my stash forever. I most likely got it in a Scraps of Darkness kit awhile back. I wanted a pop of color and to match it up to my daughters pink costume in the photo.
The beautiful purple florals and subtle light brown florals were in the kit.
They are Petaloo Botanica Velvet Hydrangeas - Violet and Prima Engraver Light Brown
I used clear gesso on the background paper then misted with Lindys Cafe Au Lait. I used a stencil and paste then sprayed with water and misted in Lindys Tea Pot Purple.
The additional florals were in past kits.
We received some beautiful chipboard from Blue Fern Studios as well. This piece is the Ironwork Edge found in our Elements Add On --- HERE. I first painted the chipboard in Gold Lumiere (can you tell I love this product) and then I embossed with Stampendous Spoonful of Rust found in our Creativity Add On --- HERE. I also used Stampendous Encrusted Jewels in Purple. My favorite embossing powders and Melinda sells them in the store ---- HERE
Here is another peek at the Spoonful of Rust embossing powder effect.
Thanks a bunch for stopping in.
