true love ~ Scraps of Darkness Design Team Reveal Part II

And I'm back with a second layout as part of my Scraps of Darkness Design Team reveal for the incredible Feburary A Touch of Grey Kit! My second layout is a mixed media layout based on the wonderfully talented Riikka Kovasin's tutorial for Pop & Colours 2.
Scrap Around the World has an amazing Mood Board in shades of pink that I used as the inspiration for this layout.
I don't often use Pink, since most of my layouts are about my son - but then I thought "Who says Pink cant be for boys?!?!?" And I just love how this layout turned out! For the colour on the layout, I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starbursts in Bodacious Blush and Cheshire Cat Cherry, along with Colorbox Chalk Inks in Chianti, Peony and Orchid. There are also some splatters of Black Ink. The papers are a combination of Authentique, Fabscraps and Kaisercraft from the SOD February Kit and I've added in some Petaloo Flowers (Flower Add-On). The large clear gems and decorative wood pieces are from Teresa Collins' Save The Date collection (Embellishment Add-On) and I added some clear bubbles and a Prima Flair button from previous SOD kits. Finally, I added some fuschia and white sequins from my stash. Here are some close-ups!


Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you enjoyed my experiment in Pink! :)
