Palace of the Fine Arts – Scraps of Darkness February Kit “The TellTale Heart”


Here is the 2nd layout I have made using the gorgeous February kit “The TellTale Heart” from www.scrapsofdarkness.com .  I really haven’t scrapped that many photos of Daniel and I, so I really thought this kit was PERFECT to scrap some of my favorite photos of us together through the years.  This sketch was also inspired by one of Charlotte Jenkins’ (aka Suepup) amazing “SKETCH E” that she created a little over 2 years ago.  And did I happen to mention…Charlotte is Scraps of Darkness’s SKETCH ARTIST! Woo Hoo! I adore her work!

Here is a photo of Daniel and I at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco, California.  I dearly LOVE that city!

The circles around the circle were made by punching out dozens of little circles with one of my larger hole punches and painstakingly applying them using Zip Dry glue.  Don’t you just love that Teresa Collin’s Fleur-de-lis blinkage?! I made the flowers with several different sizes of Retro Flower punches from EK Success, then roughed up the edges a little with some decorative edge scissors…the little brown flower centers are actually wood furniture buttons I got at Hobby Lobby…I liked the look of the natural wood so I didn’t alter them.  The very bottom strip of paper was done using some Chalk Ink and Prima masks (masks are included in the Color Add-on that you can order along with this Main kit.)

The flourishes were made by hand-drawing and cutting with my handy dandy X-acto knife out of plain black Cardstock.

Here are a few up-close detailed photos:

Well…this is all I have to share at the moment…I already have another page in progess, so stay tuned 🙂

    Another fabulous layout Nancy! I love the wood centers on the flowers, the kraft butterflies and that insanely cool fleur-de-lis! Wow! I have never seen that before, very cool looking! The dots around the circle look amazing, only you would have such determination to create and glue each one on by hand! 🙂 Intense amount of work, but definitely paid off! Beautiful!

In your LO, there are so many areas of interest….simply a LOT to take in. Love the “homegrown” flowers, the little flower tabs and of course, your TC “blingage”!
