~Scraps of Darkness January Kit Reveal~

"Searching for my lost shaker of salt" ~ Jimmy Buffett

Another month and another amazing kit from Scraps of Darkness!!  This month's kit is called Escape and it's packed full of Graphic 45 and tons of other awesome goodies and papers!!  This is also another wonderfully versatile kit as you will see from my pages below!!  

This first page is of my youngest daughter a couple of years ago.  She was at a swimming pool having a blast.  This page is based on Charlotte's aka Suepup's sketch for the month!!  I called this one My Lil Guppy!

 I added in some older Dusty Attic chippies from the Baroque Circle Frame Set!  I coated them with some of the Lindy's Color Shot that came in the color add on.  I just mixed some clear glaze, water, and color shot together and it came out beautifully.
 I used to do this a lot when I made pre made pages way back when.  I have seen a few people doing this again and I thought I would throw a picture ribbon on myself.
 This is the other close up of the 2nd chippie from the same frame set.  
This is a photo of my dh and three of my daughters at the Oregon Coast.  It's such a beautiful and clean place to visit.  This layout shows some of the warmer color tones included in the kit.
 The sand dollar is real!! How cool is that?
 This is tricky netting to use, because it larger than most, but I tacked mine down with some glossy accents and let it dry.  After that it was good to go.
 These are some super cute little tags and I inserted a bit of journaling into mine.
 Renea made these gorgeous butterflies!! So cool!!  For the corrugated cardboard I used Lindy's mists and painted some of it with TH crackle paint.  After it dried I added some embossing powder over the top of it for added detail.
This next one is of my youngest and her best friend hanging out in the sunshine.  I love the look on Brooky's face and they reminded me of a couple teenagers sitting around and gossiping.  To get this crumpled up look, just spray your paper heavily with water and scrunch away.
 The leaves for these flowers were cut from one of the pieces of patterned paper in the kit.  The bottom blue layer was done using the stamp from the color add on and I layered the rest with a punch I had and some flowers that came with the kit.
I did the stitching by hand using some sparkly floss and it was such a pain to work with lol.  Not as smooth as regular floss.
 I added some more cut out flowers from the patterned paper to place behind this feathery flower.
 I used some of the beautiful Lindy mists from the color add on for this and I added the white faux stitching and little dots using a Signo white pen.
My last one is the brightest! This is a pic of Rylee, Tyler, and a friend of there's.  Well their shadows anyway!  I thought it was a pretty fun pic!!

 Here is another shot of one of Renea's super cute butterflies she created!!

 I did some masking, but it's hard to see!!  The doily tabs are from my EK Success Doily Flower punch.
Here is one last look at the main kit :)
Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!
