Fall fun with the November Scraps of Darkness kit

Good afternoon!
I am middle of a deep clean getting ready for a birthday party on the weekend!
I am washing walls, cleaning furniture, washing floors...all the fun stuff!
BUT....
I wanted to share my layout I created using the newest November kit from Scraps Of Darkness 


Those little cuties are are our boys a few years ago....
I was lucky to capture this moment of sheer joy - they were so happy just playing in the leaves...just being boys ...just being brothers enjoying the leaf pile! 
I used the Bo Bunny Enchanted Harvest Papers for this one because the beautiful rich colors were perfect for the photo! I also used the Hemptique Crafter's Hemp Cord around the side of my photo and then let the ends fall like they were blown by the same wind that blew the leaves off the trees.


I used the cardstock sticker from the  main kit and I fussy cut one of the butterflies from a BO Bunny paper



I did a lot of fussy cutting of leaves from the paper 'foliage'
I cut out each one, inked the edges with the 'ground espresso' distress ink from the color add on, then added the distress glitter from a previous kit and the chartreuse iced enamels I bought from the SOD store...I also embossed a few with Lindy's embossing powders from previous kits


I tucked in a few of the Petaloo red botanica velvet hydrangeas 


I bent a few up to show dimension and show off their beauty! 


I love how it looks like a big leaf pile.


In the elements add on there is these beautiful Prima resin leaves that I had a lot of fun with.  I used the Cinnamon Brown Silks pain on the leaves in spots...while still wet I then sprayed it with the 'carves pumpkin' distress spray stain - both from the color add on. I heat set, then added some of the distress glitter and some crackle medium to get the look I wanted.
