Here is the latest layout I created using the amazing June “Welcome to the Jungle” kit from www.scrapsofdarkness.com ! Be sure and get over and check out this amazing monthly scrapbooking kit club…and be sure and stop in to the Scraps of Darkness Shoppe – so many amazingly cool papers and embellishments!!!!
There are so many little details I put into this page…I wish everyone could see this in person because I just cannot get a photo to portray the “love” I made this with.
I will share a TON of up-close and detailed photos and maybe you can get a better feel for what went into this.
the little feathers are from my stash…as are some of the silk flowers…I love to buy flowers at Hobby Lobby when they are 50% off – which is almost every time I go into that store….I tear them/cut them apart…ink them, stain them, paint them, layer them with my other Prima flowers….they always come in handy
Above you can see my border punches in action…the gate punch is from Martha Stewart, the fleur-de-lis punch is EK Success, which really is one and the same as EK Success makes Martha Stewarts punches LOL! Also, you can see part of the negative sticker strip that I used from the Bo Bunny sticker sheet that came in this month’s Scraps of Darkness kit.
Above you can see how I used the little pieces that got “punched-out” with the Fleur-de-lis border punch….nothing goes to waste!
Above, you can see how I used these same “punched-out” pieces to accent my flowers.
Above you can see one of my newest Martha Stewart scrolly, heart border punches…I used a black pen to highlight the pattern…I LOVE LOVE LOVE this punch. The “furry” animal print ribbon is from my stash…I thought it was perfect for this kit!
Everytime I sat down to create with this kit….my whimsical side seemed to come out! Thus, you have a fish here….LOL….I have wanted to use this fish forever…It is from K & Company….it came out of a package of ephemera…I “think” from the Que Sera Sera line?! Here I just had to layer it with the little sticker frame.
Above is a little photo of my sweet little Baby Witch…I’ve scrapped this photo at least 2 other times that I know of…but I don’t care…I absolutely LOVE this photo and will be sure to scrap it again.
The title letters are from Graphic 45…I cut them square, leaving a few round for visual interest.
The “bubble-wrap” and “grid” stamping is from Tim Holtz…I used acrylic paint and Staz-On ink on these. The butterfly is K & Company.
I added some black buttons, painted them with some Plaid metallic copper paint and then lightly sanded them.
TFL my friends! I appreciate you! Also, if you would like to receive my blog updates to your e-mail, be sure and sign-up for my blog over in the right-hand column! Happy Sunday!!!!
