Love This~Scraps Of Darkness November Kit~Water Lilies

I have to admit, I am in love with the 7 Dots 9th Wave papers in this month's Scraps Of Darkness Kit~Water Lilies. I absolutely love all the teals and browns in this kit!!
The following is a layout that I created with a beautiful photo of our family friend's daughter Madeline Bales
Maddie's country version of Lorde's "Royals" was played on the radio in the UK! The radio host, Roz P, contacted Maddie's family via Youtube and said she thought Madeline's version was amazing and wanted to play it on her radio show! Of course they said yes! It aired on 105.9 Bishop FM . Thank you Roz and Bishop FM for playing Madeline's version of the song!! - You can check them out at - Here's the segment for your listening pleasure! See the original Youtube video at

So proud of you Maddie!!

I did lots of distressing, multi layer inking and crackle painting on the edges. and then fussy cut some of the paper and layered it in with dry wall tape for texture.

I 3 layer misted some stash lace and layered it in the peek a boos and below the photo. The ornate piece was a Heidi Swapp piece from the embellishment add on that I multi layer misted. 

I also misted some of the flowers from the kit, and layered them over misted cheesecloth accented with some of the sequins from the kit, and added more flowers from the Floral Add On.

The love this title was cut from the Pink Pailee Color Wash Tags from the EAO. I inked them and then layered them over some of the misted lace and added the little wooden Dragonflies from the kit accented with rhinestones also from the kit.
I randomly stenciled a Prima pattern underneath the flowers and around the page.

Here you can see some of the distress crackle edging and color work.

And here you can see all the dimension created with the layering.

I am so proud of Maddie, and I hope you enjoyed this layout that I created using that gorgeous November Kit!! After all the Christmas work that I have been doing this season, this kit was a wonderful break into the grungy, inky side of my brain! Hugs ~Renea

What a treat! Beautiful young woman, beautiful layout. I really like the title words (neg space letters) and the gorgeous color scheme, Renea. The bottom photo is cool- nice contrast against all-black. Merry Christmas to you, too! :)
