The Scraps Of Darkness December Kit~Winter Wonderland made it's debut on the 16th, but with it being around the Holidays, Melinda gave the Design Team extra time to do their reveal layouts. That is one of the things that I love about working for the Scraps Of Darkness and Scraps Of Elegance teams, we are very family oriented and Mel never expects us to compromise our families in order to turn out projects.
I have to say, after taking almost 2 weeks off, I was ready to get back in my scrap room and get my hands dirty!!
This layout is based on the wonderful and inspiring sketch by Charlotte (Suepup), and after riffling through the papers, I knew I wanted to do a layout with a snow owl. They are just so gorgeous and peaceful, and I found the perfect photo on a free photo site. You can find the link on my blog as well as close ups and details about the layout at:
I used the following techniques on this layout:
distressing, puff painting, snow tex painting, misting, layering, distress crackle painting, micro seed beads, machine sewing, hand stitching, and die cutting.
I just love all the dimension and texture that the layers and techniques created! If you love techniques, textures and layers then the Scraps Of Darkness Kits and Add Ons are the perfect solution. The kits really are so original and gorgeous and the best thing~they arrive at your door ready to create with!!
Here's to a New Year filled with cups of hot chocolate and tea, fireside naps, and lots of scrappy fun!! Hugs~Renea
