Under The Spell Of The Scraps Of Darkness October Kit~Gothic~

Yes, it is that time of the year~time for the Scraps Of Darkness Halloween Kit Reveal!!!! You will be completely under it's spell from the first moment you open up the box!! It is simply Wicked Divine!!

The following is the totally Spooktacular Sketch done by the always inspiring Sue Pup, just for our kits:

And the following is my take on the sketch:

It features a photo of Natalie Portman in the movie "Black Swan". Last Halloween, my husband, David, surprised me by bringing home a movie. He said that he thought it sounded like something I would love. He said, and I quote, "it had two of your favorite things in it, Ballet and crazy!!" LOL~ you gotta love him~he knows me so well! Well, he was right, I loved it, it was beautiful with all the ballet, and crazy with the psychological thriller aspect~yep, right up my alley.

I did lots of technique work that includes, distressing and tearing the edges of the paper then painting them with Shimmerz Texturez Paint, then adding Glass Glitter and seed beads. 

I made tears in the paper and repeated the texture paint, glitter and seed bead edges and then added some of the little mirrors from the kit.  I did some stenciling with modeling paste and added the really FAB pearl colored stones to accent it.  The matte behind the photo is misted then Shimmerz painted, corrugated board that I dusted with Glass Glitter and seed beads.

I added in a large feather from a past kit, some hand painted, die cut foliage, some cheesecloth, feathers from the Kit, a stash white flower that I added a brooch to, and some of the flowers from the Floral Add On.

For the title work, I took one of the stickers from the Embellishment Add On and added crystals to the edging and flourish.

I just love Halloween, it allows me to put my wicked side on and get a little darker than I sometimes do. Getting your Mad Muse on every once in a while can be so much fun, and allows you to be creative at a whole different level~so grab your kit and  go get your Mad Muse on, and have a little fun!! Happy Halloween!! Hugs, ~Renea
