Dreams & Wishes ~ Scraps of Darkness

Today, I am sharing one more layout made with the Scraps of Darkness May Kit "Twisted & Tangled". I used the Fabscraps papers, chipboard title and layering pieces from the kit, along with some flowers, mists, washi tape, and mixed media supplies from my stash.
 I based this layout on the July Sketch at Scrap 365.
Here are some close-ups!

Mixed Media Tag ~ Scraps of Darkness

I am sharing a mixed media tag created with the Scraps of Darkness Twisted & Tangled Kit (May 2014). I used the 7 Dots Studio paper, cheesecloth, Petaloo flowers, Dylusions Mists and Shimmerz Paint from the kit, along with a few items from my stash, to create this tag.
I started out by gluing the 7 dots studio paper to a plain tag base. I added cheesecloth, flowers, pearls, chipboard and butterflies to the tag and then misted everything with Dylusions Ink Spray in Posioned Jade. I added some white gesso tot he chipboard, butterflies and pearls and blended it on the tag. Then I misted again with the Jade Dylusions. Once that was dry, I added the sentiment and some of the Shimmerz Paint in Green Olive to the Chipboard and on top of the sentiment to help it blend. I did some masking on the right side of the tag with a Prima mask and some Heavy Gel Medium - to which I added clear microbeads. I then added some Prima Pebbles and clear half beads from a previous SOD kit. Finally I misted the left side of the tag and splattered the whole tag with Dylusions Ink Sprays in Slate Grey and Black Marble. Here are some close-ups.

Moments ~ Scraps of Darkness

June has been an incredibly busy month for me and I am late in sharing another layout created with the fabulous Scraps of Darkness May "Twisted and Tangled" Kit! I just love the 7 Dots Studio Cold Country papers in this kit and I had so much fun playing with different media on this layout - including two of the gorgeous colours of Shimmerz included in the kit (Sugar Plum - Main Kit and Ultra Marine - Colour Add-on).
I started with some gesso on the base page and then layered strips of the Cold Country papers with some strips cut from the cheesecloth in the kit. I added a light coat of gesso to the layers and then used the Shimmer paints to paint along the edges of the strips. I did some masking with light molding paste and some stamping with the butterfly stamp and sentiment included in the Embellishment Add-on. I wanted to add some more texture to the layout, so I added some lines of heavy gel medium and sprinkled clear microbeads on them - LOVE how this added texture and shine to the layout. Finally, I added in some flowers from the Main Kit and Flower Add-on and one of the Prima Ingvild Bolme Junkyard Findings Jeans plates as embellishments. Here are some close-ups!
