Scraps Of Darkness~September Kit~The Black Album

If you haven't seen the Scraps Of Darkness September Kit~The Black Album yet, you should really check it out!! It is full of those so very hot, My Mind's Eye Chalk Studio papers and so many gorgeous embellishments to go along with them!

The Design Team kicked off reveal week with a layout, and now they are having their official reveal day today. Here are a couple of more layouts that I put together using this unique and yummy kit:

This first layout features a photo of my God Child~Michelle and at the time her fiancee, who is now her husband Richard (AKA Tooter). My son, Draven did their engagement photos and I loved how well this one with the chalkboard hearts went with this month's kit and add ons. 

I loved the stencil in the color add on and used it, just filling in the hearts randomly with Shimmerz Texurz. I did lots of puff paint stamping and outlining, seed beads and of course some grunged up corrugated board. The Ice Glitter Glass Butterflies are from my Reneabouquets Etsy Shop.

I set eyelets in the 2 pieces of corrugated board and laced them with tie offs made from the ribbon in the kit, added one of the Webster's Pages embellishments from the embellishment add on and added on flowers from the Flora & Fauna and a few from my SOE stash.

And here are some close ups of all the texture and mediums:


And here is a side angle of all the dimension:

Next I have a Vintage look layout that I did pulling the blues and blacks from the papers.

I fussy cut out the top paper and layered it onto a patterned paper that gave this layout a n edgy look. I did some crackle painting and inking on one side to give an aged, distressed look to it.

I spritzed the black Doillies from the kit with some of the mist from the Color Add On, and layered on some of the trim, a frame from the Teresa Collins Memorabilia sheet, a fussy cut frame from some of the paper, and one of the flair buttons all from the kit. The flowers and black flourishes  were from my past kit stash, and the Keep Calm Glitter Glass Butterflies are from my Etsy Shop.

Here is a close up of some of the details:
