Prince Charming- Scraps Of Darkness-Darkside Challenge

This is a layout I created with the August, Scraps Of Darkness Kit-Envy. I created it for Celina's (forevervampress) Darks Side Challenge. This is a fun challenge that you don't have to use Scraps Of Darkness for, just join in, and the Challenge this month is Enchantment, any way or any how you want to interpret it. This is my interpretation:

The first layer is one of the beautiful green Robin's Nest pps from the kit. I then took the die cut and cut out the center, then added some stash trim to the inside of it. I then took a piece of kit pp and cut out a background and added a cut up doilie for the edging. Next I took the piece, that I cut out of the center, cut it into a photo mat, and distressed and inked the edges. I then took a photo of my son, Draven  with his friend Jennifer and toned it to match the colors of the layout in Photoshop, and used a rub on from my stash to cover up some of the background noise.

I took some Vintage Flowers from my Etsy Shop and layered in some of the fern pieces from the kit that I gesso-ed, some of the Kaisercraft Posies from the Flora & Fauna Kit, some leaves that I cut with my sizzix, and some reindeer moss from my stash and created the large flower layer.

 I then used  a small Vintage Flower, some of the mini white roses from the Flora & Fauna add on with a piece of Prima bling from the May kit that I cut apart, and made a second flower layer. I added in one of the sweet Melissa Frances mini frames from the Romance Add On and popped in one of the Blue Moon Trinkets from the Romance Add On. I tucked in some of the reindeer moss behind the die cut and fussy cut out a digital bird and UTEED him up for a glass look and tucked him into the flower piece.

I took another piece of the Prima Bling that I had cut up and added it to the top left hand corner and added a butterfly. I used one of the Melissa Frances mini frames to frame out the first word of my title "Prince".

I then cut out some digital tiles that I had purchased on Etsy. Framed the C in "Charming" with one of the Melissa Francis mini frames, popped on a couple more butterflies and some stash pearl pieces. Added some Dusty Attic Corner pieces from my Etsy shop, and that was a wrap.

Hope you can find the time to come and play along with one of our challenges! They are always so much fun, especially when your friends play along with you! ~Renea
