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!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weathered and Worn kit from Scraps Of Darkness!


When we saw Fabscraps' Industrial Chic collection, we just couldn't resist!  We matched it with some beautiful Marion Smith Designs Garment District, a little Teresa Collins Life Emporium, some gorgeous Blue Fern chipboard, and Melissa Frances' Glamour and Grunge for a kit you can take in so many different directions!  Go girly with the Fabscraps Wood Chic papers and the Blue Fern chipboard... go rustic with the Teresa Collins and Darice Craft Designer Jute!  How about a little shabby chic with the Fabscraps Paint Chic Papers, Maya Road Bird in a Circle Charms, and Magnolia Ruffled Cherry Blossoms?  So many possibilities, so little time...  If you want to see the full list of what's included or pick up this beauty for yourself, just stop by our store.

And we think we came up with the perfect Creativity Add On to compliment this month's main kit...


Is that a wood pallet?!  Yes it is!  It's Walnut Hollow's Rustic Wood Pallet (11.5" x 11"), and we've got a wonderful 6x9 stencil from Art Anthology - Cracked, along with some brand new white Milk Paint from Imaginisce, and there are a few other goodies tucked in there, as shown in the pic.  Imagine the beautiful wall hanging you could create!

My First Leaky Shed Layout!!!!

Hey everyone!  
I am so excited to share my very first Leaky Shed Studio creation!
After receiving my first package of gorgeous chipboard I was stoked to create this layout of my hubby & I


I love texture and dimension on my projects and
the awesome Leaky Shed chipboard pieces were the perfect embellishment!






Here I used the Gear set amongst my cluster!

Here is a close up of the texture and color





I used gesso, sand gel and mists to create the effect
on both the gears & the 'Cowboy' & the barbed wire border

Another layout from the Believe kit

Morning everyone!

I love this kit - it is so fun and bright!

So I tried a fun and bright layout about my beautiful granddaughter!

I did a lot of fussy cutting of the wonderful Bo Bunny papers


I fussy cut the sign and the gnome and added the reindeer moss for texture




I also fussy cut a fairy and added a nest from the embellishment add on.  I used the flowers from the floral add on and I used a mushroom from my stash that I gessoed then sprayed with the mists from the color add on and added the dots using the dimensionz.  I did not want perfect circles on the mushrooms so I used my heat gun to dry and texturize the paint. I also added more of the moss





another cluster.....


lots of dimension!

My First layout with the 'Believ' kit

Hi everyone!

Today I get to show you my first layout with the beautiful 'Believe' kit 
from Scraps Of Darkness!


The texture in the background I used the Teresa Collins mask from a SOE kit and some molding paste - used the fabulous inklingz in the 'I'm not Lim On' and 'Beets Me' that came in this SOD kit and some Dylusions slate grey mist from a previous SOD kit.

The beautiful Prima resin frame I sprayed with a few mists so it compliments the layout

I used the fabulous mood board from the SOD/SOE monthly challenge for inspiration
Everyone can enter - you do not have to use one of our kits - just be inspired by the images!


I fussy cut all the flowers out of the wonderful Kaisercraft paper


and I used lots of foam dots to add dimesion


and I used the title from the mood board - it really suited the photo
