~Reveal Day for Scraps of Darkness~

Grunge Baby!! This months kit from Scraps of Darkness is called "November Rain" and it's another awesome kit full of grungy goodness!! Packed with awesome papers from Glitz Design, Bo Bunny and Prima as well as tons of awesome embellishments!! This is really a fun and fantastic kit!! I tried making a more fun and funky sketch for this month!!
Here is my take on the sketch for November. I kept it pretty simple because I wanted to focus on Tyler's beautiful photograph. I just love the lighting on her face. This form of distressing is really easy. Just go around your page with an edge distresser then crumple your pp up a bit. Then lightly go over the raised creases of the pp. This will bring more dimension to your pages.
To get the black spots on the corners I found a template that I own and just inked over the top of it. Easy technique that helps give some extra details to a page.
I broke up my circle and lightly distressed around the edges. The pretty little flowers are Petaloo. Such pretty colors!!
This was a cool piece of chippie from the kit. I coated it in some black ink then used gun metal embossing powder, then squirted some clear crackle glaze on top. Then I took the heat gun and melted it all together and let it bubble up a bit here and there.
Here is a pic of me in a red wig lol. Lots of yummy distressed layers!! I did some cool machine stitching and it was easy to get it straight because of the grid on the pp.
Pink Paislee has these cool white embellishments that you can decorate or leave blank. I used some Pearl Ex on mine and used a black marker for the creases. I used grunge paper for the Tim Holtz flowers and added some beads I had on hand.
I love this layout. I love this pic of Brooky and although I added the Dusty Attic chippies and vine, then rest is SOD yumminess!! I used a full page template to get the scalloped edge and took a 1/2" hole punch for the holes all the way around it. The stitching is faux :)
This gorgeous vine was made by Katie777 and you can find her amazing pieces at her Etsy shop. The "inspire" chippie is new from Dusty Attic.
Another piece of some new Dusty Attic corners. They came out with some gorgeous new chippies!!
My sweet little guy!! This is my grungiest layout so far!! I had fun making it as always!!
I cut these stars from some of the pp. The bottle caps were coated with pearl ex copper powder and crackle paint.
This little trick was made with molding paste. I used a 6x6 Lego base to press into the paste to get the holes. To do this, you will want to dry your paste almost completely and then press in your mold.

Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!
