Mixed Media MOnday - October SOD kit!

Greetings to you all!  Today I am here to share my second mixed media layout using the October, 2017 Scraps of Darkness Kit.  The title of my layout is "Lovely" because Shirley Temple is so very lovely.


I used the Main Kit, the Elements Add-On Kit, and the Floral Add-On Kit.  Here is a preview of the Kits:




I  used feathers for the first time on a layout and learned that in order to keep them from shedding, you can use aerosol hairspray - just a light mist will work.


The Prima Marketing flowers were a nice touch for the layout.  I liked that they have gold tips.


I used one of the papers for my background, and I also added parts of another paper from the kit for matting behind the picture.


I hope I was able to inspire you today!  You can go here to check out the online store, and don't forget to check out the Scraps of Darkness design team blog for extra inspiration!

Gorgeous Autumn mixed media layout - Falling Leaves Kit

Hello my fellow crafters, Lisa here to share the last page
I designed with the 'Falling Leaves' kit.

'Autumn'


 This Blue Fern Studios collection is one of my top favourites. When I chose this paper called 'Birdsong' I knew I wanted to make something light and delicate with a vintage
look. I glued down some old piano music in the background and then added some of the Prima vintage ephemera, flowers from the Floral Add On, some chipboard and a few pine cones.

Here are a few close ups:





I hope you like it! 
See you soon, Lisa xo

Boo - tiful Halloween layout - October SOD kit

Hi everyone.  Sharon here sharing my first layout made with the awesome October Scraps of Darkness kit!  I absolutely love all of the wonderful paper and goodies contained in this kit.
I used paper from the Pink Paislee Spellcast collection as my background:



My completed page:


I decided to use a photo that was taken at a Halloween Party that I attended with my family and friends this year.  My friend's home was decorated to the nines - the spider in the photo is just a small part of the cool and spooky decor she had.  

In keeping with that theme, I used some of the fun items contained in the Fancy Pants ephemera pack:


And I enjoyed adding paint splatters using orange paint from the mixed media add-on:


I had a blast using the black and white flowers and black feathers that were a part of the main kit;  
and the beautiful black lace from the elements add-on:


  
Making this page was so much fun!!!




It was a quick and easy layout.  I find that you don't have to spend hours creating a scrapbook page when you have all of the right ingredients at your fingertips!

I hope you get a chance to check out the Scraps of Darkness store and Facebook page.  

Thank you so much for stopping by today.

Happy Scrapping!!!
