If you fall I will catch you TIME AFTER TIME – Twisted Sketch #98 and Scraps of Darkness April “Foundations” kit


The latest sketch is up over at www.twistedsketches.com  – Twisted Sketch #98 – with the “twist” of paint, any how or any way that inspires you to create.  Here is my interpretation:

This is the 6th layout I have created using the amazing April “Foundations” kit from www.scrapsofdarkness.com ! Talk about amazing and versatile kits! They are full of the unique, the extraordinary, and the exquisite…..Scraps of Darkness specializes in kits that are out-of-the-ordinary, edgy, waiting to be distressed….this kit club is special, but don’t take my word for it, check it out HERE for yourself.

I used a lot of acrylic PAINT on this layout….I dry-brushed Plaid acrylic paint in black on the background and in the center of the red background square. I also used red acrylic paint … using bubble-wrap to randomly “stamp” the background.  I lined the outer rim of the acrylic clock piece with black acrylic paint as well.

This layout was made using the Timepiece Collection from this month’s Scraps of Darkness kit…a few Tim Holtz accents, flowers, E K Success sticker flourishes (my stash) , ZVA bling crystal flower accents…some AWESOME Spanish Moss (to see the full contents of this month’s Foundations kit please check out www.scrapsofdarkness.com ) …and voila’! Here are my 2 kiddos….and the title couldn’t be any more true! TFL my friends! and here  are some up-close, detailed photos:

Please come over and join in the fun at www.twistedsketches.com – post a direct link to your layout under the “comment” section of Twisted Sketch #98 so I can marvel at your creation! TFL!!!

    I am so in love with this layout! I love the paint effects you did…and want to know how!!!! Is it part of what you learned from the she workshop? I’ve been thinking about taking the journaling workshop…if this is part of what you learned I’ll stop hesitating!

    Like I said, you better submit this for publication! This layout is smokin’ hot fantastic! The title is perfection….I adore anything that brings Cyndi Lauper songs to mind…oh, such sweet memories. 🙂

    LOVE the way the clock is perfectly placed over all the embellishments and the photos of Lizzy and Saylor!
