My warm and beachy Leaky Shed layout

Hi everyone!

I am excited to show yo my new layout from Leaky Shed!!!

My family and I love the beach and we spend a lot of time over the summer there!
I was really happy to see a fabulous sandcastle available through Leaky Shed!

This is my youngest son.....he loves to wade in the water....

I used the fabulous sand castle!  What is really neat it is cut out of sand paper!
Feels like beach sand and looks like it belongs on the beach!

I added a little gesso to add a little more visual interest!

Here are a few more details....

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day

Scraps Of Darkness.....

This months Scraps Of Darkness kit 'Transitions'
is awesome!

My first layout I did is of our boys when they were small....

It does not seem like it was that long ago that they were this little

the flowers from the floral add on are fabulous!  I just added a bit of gesso!
I also loved the chipboard leaf stems that I painted with the Jacquard Lumiere Paint in Metallic Olive Green from the color add on.
I sprayed some cheesecloth with mists from previous months for more texture!
I also fussy cut many butterflies from the beautiful prima paper! 

More fussy cut butterflies and strings from the cheesecloth!

The title card was perfect for this layout!

My next layout I was inspired by this months mood board!

here is my 'fall' layout

Our boys were having a lot of fun that day!

The leaves I die cut I sprayed with mists and inked using stuff from previous kits!

Time Well Spent - Leaky Shed

Good morning everyone!
I hope you are all having a wonderful week!

Today I get to share a layout I created using the fabulous Clock chippie!

I don't know about everyone else but for me anytime spent with my family is time well spent!

I used the clock to frame my photo!
To create the look - I painted the chippie with gesso, then I used my purple gelato over a few areas, then I sprayed with Bodacious Blush mist from Lindy's then added a little more gesso

I kept the hands from the clock to use as an accent in my corner cluster!

I love to cluster!

and I love dimension!

Weathered and Worn projects!

Good morning everyone!

Today I am going to share a couple of my layouts using the awesome
Scraps Of Darkness 'Weathered and Worn' kit

First up is a about about my fabulous family using the 
Teresa Collins 'Life Emporium' papers from the kit and paper add on!
Such gorgeous and fun papers!

I really loved layering these papers....they coordinate so well!

I had this word 'family' in my stash!
So I painted it brown with the Art Anthology Metal Effects Paint then stuccoed the
Shimmerz Texturez Paint in Crushed Coral, all from the color add on

I created a flower cluster using the flowers from the flower add on and my stash!
The kit also comes with this really cool canvas banner that I simply inked on the edges!

The heart doily comes in a package of 12!  I love doilies so its really awesome!
They started off a little on the pink side so I inked them then added some embossing powders from a previous kit!

Next is another layering creation - I love to layer....

This is my oldest son and I...he brings me such happiness!!!!

This time I used the Marion Smith Designs 'Garment District' papers!

I fussy cut a few 'tickets' from a couple of the papers and added a couple of flowers

I inked some of the flowers (some are from previous kits) and added the resin flowers and created a fun corner cluster!

the birdie is from the this kit and the 'happiness' sign is from a previous kit

Lots of layers and another doily!!!!!!!!!!!!
