~Scraps of Darkness November Kit Reveal~

"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 month we are getting down and groovy with the November Scraps of Darkness kit called Purple Haze!!  This is another absolutely gorgeous kit filled with so many beautiful papers and embellies!!  I am also the current Pandora's Box artist which means I did a tutorial on a full layout I put together which you can see below.  Let's get started!!  Here's the kit pic!!
This first one is my take on the Charlotte's sketch! The photo is of my daughter, Rylee, smiling, which doesn't happen all that often in pics :)

 Clusters of embellies are one tip I give out a lot!!  They always look nicer in packs :)  The background is layered with cheesecloth that I spritzed with some pale green mist.  

 I used two of my pins which are included in the Romance Add On!
 These letters are painted with Gesso and detailed with Stickles.
 This next page is my Pandora's Box layout.  The photo is of my youngest daughter.  Here is the video if you want to check it out.  I apologize for some of the extra boring parts lol.
After the video I did add a few extras to finish it off.  I figured the most important part was the foundation along with the main embellies :)

My next page is of myself that was taken this summer.  I used a few Dusty Attic chippies to add to this one.  
 These little birds nests by Prima are so cute, but a little chunky, so I cut the entire bottom off of mine.  It sat on my page so much nicer after that.

 These are the Sweet Pea Border Strips that I coated with Gesso and Distress Ink.  

 The last one for today is of my daughter, Tyler.  I added the Dusty Attic Garden Frame on this one.  
 I used my EK Success Dahlia Flower Punch again.  The hearts are Prima and beautiful!!
 For the chippie I coated it all with Concord Grape Distress Ink and then painted some mint colored acrylic paint onto the inside area.  I then wiped it down with a paper towel and used some Purple Chalk Ink to blend it out towards the outer edge.

 These little Dusty nameplates are so cute.  I used some of my kit paper along with one of the Bo Bunny rubs to make my title.  
Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!
