Scraps of Darkness Reveal *January Kit*

It's Reveal Day again, and there is a lot going on at Scraps of Darkness! Before I get started with the reveal of the January kit, I wanted to share some exciting news.

Scraps of Darkness is going to have a new little sister!!

On February 1st, we will reveal a new line of kits, Scraps of Elegance. These kits will be a little different from what you are used to seeing from Scraps of Darkness, and we are honored to have a very talented surprise guest designer who will be helping us to show off our first Scraps of Elegance kit. In addition to that (as if that isn't a lot!), we'll be having a blog hop to kick it all off, so set your calenders to stop back on February 1, 2012!

There is also a new challenge called  Dr Darkness' Interpretation Challenge and anyone can enter.  The winner will receive this kit!!  So head to the SOD blog for details and how to play.
Now on to the reveal.....

This is the new January kit from Scraps of Darkness called "Escape".  So yes, we are going tropical!!!  Wanna come along?  This kit holds the new Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue Collection, some Pink Paislee Nantucket papers & products, new Prima & Petaloo, Tim Holtz tags, Authentique Gathering papers & tags and more!
 This is the monthly sketch by is so refreshing and cool!!
Here is what I came up with using the sketch.  I went with the bolder colors for this pool side page.  The black net I got from a ham, the shells came from the beach, the burlap, beach stickers and the floral tape all came from my stash.   This is Andrew showing off his muscles, so I called this page "Macho Man".  Aug 2009

I used all G45 papers, cutting some up, masking over another and layering it all up. 
Those blue flowers are Petaloo (Flora & Fauna add-on).  The journal tag is from Authentique Gathering (main kit).

That cute turtle and arrow are Pink Paislee chippies (Romance add-on).  The arrow was painted using Lindy's Magicals.  The turtle was inked.
I took this next page into a shabby chic look with some vintage elements to it.  The photo is my mom about age 2-3 (early 1940's) on the beach, so I call this "Beach Babe".

I used some of the Nantucket papers with the G45.
I really like the fishnet (main kit) that came with the kit.  I made the design to show it off.  I glued it down using mod podge and then used part of the title on top of it.  The fold down was scrunched up with some of the tulle (romance add-on) and tied together with twine and the TH tags.
The larger "Coconut" flowers are Kaisercraft (flora & fauna add-on).  The tag is G45 (main kit).  I painted the seahorse (romance add-on) with Lindy's magicals.  The sand dollar came in the main kit.  The other chippies are DA and are from my stash.
