Winter Wishes Made With The Scraps Of Darkness~Northern Lights Kit

If Winter has you feeling a little blue and longing for something warm, inside you can do then look no further than this month's Scraps Of Darkness Northern Lights Kit!! I just love the Winter themed look of this kit and it is soooo perfect for capturing those Winterliciously Wonderful Memories!

I created the following layout using lots of distressing, inking, misting, layering, and sand paste work along with a photo that my sis, Tammy, had taken last Winter that I then colorized in PhotoShop. Thank you sis for always letting me "borrow" your photos!!

Layers of different sizes of the kit papers were used as the base for this layout. I distessed the 2nd layer and then distress punched it randomly, and then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Seedless Preserves Ink, I then misted randomly with Prima Color Bloom Spray in Iris.The "snow" look along the edging was created with Prima White Sand Texture Paste and  Reneabouquets Chunky Glitter Glass in Diamond. I am not sure how I got the off white color, but I think it may have been the under inking pulling through~oh well "Don't Eat The Yellow Snow!!" LOL!!

There is a layer of double misted ribbon, a strip cut from the kit papers and some of the yummy purple trim from the kit. I added some burlap pieces that I inked with the Seedless Preserves Ink for texture and then got busy layering on my flowers and details. 

I used flowers from the kit, and this month's floral add on, plus some past kit flowers and a silver bell to create the bottom corner piece.

I then added more flowers to the top corner and a couple to the side. 

I layered in some of the Moxxie Winterland Die Cuts and edged the top layer in some more of the "snow" technique. The Snow White Glitter Glass Butterflies can be found in both the Store and in the Reneabouquets Etsy Shop.

I made the snowflakes using some Tim Holtz frosted film that I inked and then edged with the Prima Sand Paste and Reneabouquets Silver Microbeads, then topped with some of the Bo Bunny pieces from the kit.

Thanks for coming by!! I so appreciate the visit!! My Winter Wish for you is that you stay warm, find something fun inside to do, and that you have a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate for me!! Hugs~Renea
