Baby Fresh – Twisted Sketch #86 using Scraps of Darkness: January’s Winter Magic kit


Today is Wednesday! and that means another sketch goes live over at www.twistedsketches.com !  The “twist” for this week’s sketch is FRESH…any how or any way that inspires you to create!  Be sure and come on over and play along…leave a link to your creation under the sketch #86 under the comments section at Twisted Sketches!  I cannot wait to see what you create!

Here is my interpretation:

Here is my sweet baby taking a bath in the sink…oh, how I miss the easiness of those days…at least easier on my back LOL! I used my Scraps of Darkness Winter Magic kit for the majority of this layout….the metal pin was bought at an estate sale…the tiny white flowers and stems were bought at a yard sale, the title letters(little tags and white foam) have been in my stash so long I am unable to identify them- the others are from PRIMA.  I used bathroom caulk and a wall-paper border for my flourish…a tutorial for this can be found at the Scraps of Darkness website HERE.  I used Dermacoat acrylic paint in black around the edges…I just couldn’t leave the white alone.  This is my first time at a monochromatic layout.  I used my Distrezz-It-All to distress the edges of just about all of the paper used here….that thing is ROCKIN’ AMAZING!!!!

I was inspired to use all of the white paper because when I saw this picture…and when I thought about the “fresh” twist…I also envisioned soft, white, “fresh” baby powder, hence the inspiration of this twist!

To see all of the amazing products available in this Scraps of Darkness kit, click HERE.  Oh, and don’t forget to visit the “shoppe“- there is a lot of amazing stuff in there…trust me, I’ve almost bought it/or plan on buying it all. 🙂

TFL my friends! I cannot tell you how very much I appreciate you and your feedback!

Addendum: OOps! I forgot my up-close photos!

    This is simply GORGEOUS! The mono chromatic LO for “fresh” is genius. Love the hint of black- it’s perfectly balanced. LOOOVE that you made the flourish from bathroom caulk! How cool it that??? The itty bitty letter tags are so cute- I really love everything about this page!
