This month's sketch:
And this is my take on the sketch:
Here you can see the bottom flower layers. The Prima florish was from my stash, as well as the green flowers that I added color to by using the Lindy's Starburst from the color add on, so that they matched my layout colors. I can't live without the color add on each month. I love to color everything, including my hands and clothes-lol! Mel, puts so many amazing technique products into that add on each month, that I reach for time and time again, so it is a must have for me!
I love a good fairytale, and no I am not talking about the candy coated one's. I am talking about the Grimm's versions. One of my fav new shows to watch is "Once Upon A Time", and I loved their version of the Little Red Riding Hood story. The following layout features a photo, I found on Google Images, and just loved. It combines Little Red Riding Hood with a bit of goth, and I just had to scrap it. The title is "Red Hot" and you can see for yourself why. Those Reds just pop!!
I went up both sides of the photo with ZVA florishes from last month's kit.
I took one of the Bo Bunny Noteworthy Die Cuts from the kit and layered it behind the photo, added a metal Bo Bunny trinket that I colored the rhinestone on, then popped on one of the Glitz Rhinestones and finished off the header with some of the ZVA rhinestones from the kit. For the finishing touch I popped on a set of my Cherry Coke Glitter Glass Butterflies from my Etsy Shop.
I just love how dramatic this layout turned out!!
Over at Scrap Book News and Reviews they are having a call for layouts that are all about you. They want submissions for layouts about things you wear or use. I loved this call and created this layout to submit. It features, one of my favorite things to wear "Boots". The journaling reads " I just love a good pair of boots." I started wearing boots as a little girl and still feel so much more happy in them, than I ever will in a pair of high heels!
I did lots of punching and distressing of all the Bo Bunny and FabScraps papers. The papers behind the photo I took of my boots are the Glitz Happy Travel Paper Layers from the Romance add on.
Scraps of Darkness store that I layered Prima flowers from the kit into. The Doilie piece is one I cut from some of the patterned paper with a Spellbinders die and then popped on one of the little Glitz Rhinestones
My boots never looked so good!
This last reveal layout showcases another love of mine, Opera. I love the Opera and the music that comes from so many of them. The Opera I chose to depict in this layout is Madama Butterfly (or Madame Butterfly as some call it). Madama Butterfly is a Tragedy, and therefore my title. So heart wrenching and beautiful, I just hope I have captured some of the essence of this masterpiece here in my layout.
The black lace, black ZVA florish and Bo Bunny trinket were all included in the kit.
Etsy Shop for lots more drama and dimension.
I just love the versatility of the Scraps of Darkness Kits, and I really enjoyed creating some layouts that tell a little bit of my story. I hope you have enjoyed this up close and personal look at me. I know I have enjoyed your visit!! Hugs, ~Renea
