The following layout is one that I created with the June, Scraps Of Darkness kit for Sketch 87 over at Little Shop of Sketches. One of our Scraps Of Darkness members, Ashley (AKA Ashleyvanetten) just made DT over there and I wanted to join her and kick of her new assignment, by doing my take on the sketch.
For the background layers, I used black cardstock, a piece of kit Bo Bunny pp, and a piece of olive cardstock from the add on. I distressed and stained the edges with the stains from the color add on.
I then cut a circle from some more of that BB pp, distressed the edges, stained them, then did some machine sewing around the edge. I took 3 photos of my son Draven and his little dog Jack that I had taken at the lake at our house, distressed the edges and inked them. I then took some wood pieces from my stash broke them and inked them with the stain from the color add on and tied them together with rafia to make a corner piece for the middle pic.
I took a piece of cardstock from the add on distressed the edges and stained them. Added a sticker from the BB Sticker page, and stickled it with the distress stickles from the kit. I glitter glamed a piece of the Chipboard from the color add on and then popped a flower from the Romance add on onto it. I took my Crop A Dile and applied eyelets randomly to the bottom corner.
I took one of the journaling stickers from the BB sticker page, distressed, and stained the edges. I broke some more of those wood pieces off and colored them with glitter glam and attatched the sticker to them to make a sign. I then took little pieces of pp strips that were left overs from previous layouts, inked and stained the edges, rolled them up and tied rope and rafia around them, and glued them to the sign.
For the top right hand corner, I cut pieces of rope from my stash, in graduating pieces and attatched them. I glammed a piece of the Romance Add On Prima trinkets then attatched it on top of the rope. I took one of the kit BB trinkets and strung rafia pieces through the holes and popped that on top. For the finishing touch, I splatter painted the edges of the olive cardstock for added texture and interest.
Thanks for stalking through the Jungle of my mind, and remember, when you need a creative boost, find a good sketch and get creative! ~Renea
