Scraps of Darkness *Nov Kit* ~ Bride of Darkness

This page was made to share for team 3 week 1, Round Robin challenge over at Scraps of Darkness.  I used the gorgeous Purple Haze kit that holds lots of beauty and some groovy style.  I wanted to bring the darkness out of this kit, so I did some altering, inking/misting to make this romantic dark page.  I used Bo Bunny's Garden Girl and Fabscraps' High Tea Music papers.  The doily came from a pie package which I inked it up.  This is me on Halloween 2011.

Those bottles and cross are Dusty Attic and came from my stash.
The Prima vine (Flora & Fauna add-on) was misted to a darker color.  I used some tulle from a previous kit behind my lacing.  The black flowers came from the SOD shoppe.

Scraps of Darkness Reveal *November Kit*

"Well she's walking through the clouds
With a circus mind that's running round
Butterflies and zebras
And moonbeams and fairy tales
That's all she ever thinks about...
Riding with the wind."
- Jimi Hendrix

This is the very lovely and groovy Purple Haze kit from Scraps of Darkness.  It withholds a bounty of beauty and fun.  The new Bo Bunny Garden Girl line is part of this impressive kit with some of  the new Basic Grey Indie Bloom line.  Don't forget the new Coordinating Paper add-on which holds some of the Glitz Design Dance In Sunshine and Fabscraps High Tea papers.

Here is Suepup's vibrant and gorgeous sketch for this month.
And this is my take on her sketch.  I went for the romantic approach, throwing in some stitching, lots of bling and lots of love.  I used Fabscraps High Tea Garden Party, Quick Quotes  Julie Je t'aime: 400 and Glitz Dance in the Sunshine Birds papers (Coordinating Paper add-on) to make this purple dream.  This is my dh and I in Jan 2011.  I titled this page "Together".
These gorgeous Prima hearts (Romance add-on) are hard to resist.  I wanted them to join as one to show a connection of love.  I cut apart the Zva crystals (main kit) to even out the balance on the page.
I added these purple Zva crystal dots (Romance add-on) everywhere lol.  I added some gesso here and there because my page needed something more, placing a dot in the middle of each blotch.  I laced up my heart border punch.

As Mistress of Mayhem (yup, my new title over at SOD), I have some new duties and will only be posting this one page today.  But keep on the lookout for more to come!!!!!

Scraps of Darkness & Sketches: Creatively Yours ~ Howl o ween

 Another great DT sketch to share with you from Sketches: Creatively Yours.  This 22-11 sketch was drawn by Alison MacDonald.  With the journaling strip on the right side, and the space for 3 photos, I knew what paper to use and who's photos to scrap.   Come see what the rest of the DT designed over at our blog or on Facebook.
Here are my fur babies!  They slightly dressed up for Halloween, because they removed parts of their costumes when I wasn't looking lol.  I used my October, All Hallows Eve kit from Scraps of Darkness, to make this cute page.  This is Angel and K-Oz in October 2011.
 I misted the flowers and leaves for a more darker appearance.  The tag is G-45, Halloween in Wonderland collection, from SOD's shoppe.
I cut the Kasiercraft 13th Hour acetate shape to put in the corner.

Scraps of Darkness & Sketches: Creatively Yours ~ Haunt

Here is another brand new fun sketch (21-11) created by our senior designer,Ann Seleshanko, from Sketches: Creatively Yours.  Please come by and see the amazing creations the DT has created.  You can find us on Facebook too.

 Since I saw this sketch as fun,  I wanted to scrap my kids having a good time.  Using my fabulous October, All Hallows Eve, kit from Scraps of Darkness, I was able to make this page, mainly using the Oct 31 line of Fancy Pants papers.  These are my kids Trick or Treating in 2010.
The screen door is a Scrapmatt chippie (Romance add-on) that I painted with black gesso and misted over it with some of the Hermit the Frog Shimmerz Paint (Color add-on).  The Prima flowers (Flora & Fauna add-on) were inked a bit.
Those cute pumpkins are Dusty Attic and came  from my stash.   Those bottles came from the Moxxie Midnight Dreary paper.  The clocks are Kasiercraft 13th Hour acetate shapes (main kit).
