4th Reveal- Scraps of Darkness- Boys Will Be Boys Kit



Hello Friends-
Today I am sharing another layout created with the March Kit  "Boys Will Be Boys"from Scraps of Darkness. I really fell in love with the colorful papers included in the kit from BoBunny's "Life in Color" and enjoy how they jump off the page with the Blue Fern "Chesterville" paper in the background. You can these beautiful Blue Fern papers here and the BoBunny papers here.

While the title of the kit suggests it a "Boy" kit you can clearly see how versatile it is and works for an autumn layout! I layered the blues, orange and lime green and stamped my flowers with some Heartfelt Creations stamps. We carry Heartfelt Creations florals stamps in the store here. I kept it really simple by stamping on the colored papers and coloring the edges with the beautiful Spectrum Noir "Sparkle" brush markers. They add a really pretty glittery sheen.

I scattered the American Crafts "POP" microbeads all over the page and in the center of the flowers along with some glitter glass. I had this piece of chipboard from Blue Fern Studios "An Autumn Story" from a past Scraps of Darkness Kit. We have a great selection of Blue Fern Chipboard and there happens to be an Autumn piece here.

I painted this chipboard in several different colors then embossed it with gold from my favorite Stampendous Encrusted Jewels in gold. I used the Spectrum Noir markers again to give it a beautiful rust sparkly sheen.

3rd Reveal Scrap of Darkness March Kit Boys Will Be Boys



Hello Friends I am back again with another layout created with the Scraps of Darkness March Kit "Boys Will Be Boys"


Have you seen these awesome papers by Blue Fern - the "Chesterville" collection? Probably the most versatile papers ever! You can use these for a mixed media look and go heavy on paints and sprays or you can use them beautifully with a mix of pattern papers and lots of color! I really loved bringing in the bright orange and blue of the BoBunny "Life in Color" papers. 

The Chesterville collection is in the Main Kit and the Life In Color paper are in the Coordinating Paper Add On.
I added a cute photo of my daughter cut in a circle. Love to do some different things with photos rather than always a square or rectangle.

I just fussy cut the frames and numbers from the Life in Color papers and layered them in a collage fashion. The arrow you see is a Blue Fern Studios Splatter Arrows found in our Elements Add On.
I colored the arrow with the Tim Holtz Salty Ocean Distress Crayon in the Main Kit and then embossed it with my  all time favorite powders Stampendous Encrusted Jewels in Gold. We have some in the shop here! I LOVE the effect these embossing powders create.

I had a resin corner from Prima and colored it in some art alchemy and added a little bling to the ballon.

Random stamping is another favorite of mine. Here I used the Carabelle Studio Circle Collage Cling Stamp found in the Elements Add On along with some Distress Ink in Marmalade. We also have Distress Ink in the shop!

Scraps of Darkness March Kit 2nd Reveal

hello Friends- I'm back again with another project featuring the fabulous "Boys Will Be Boys Kit" from Scraps of Darkness. Now you can plainly see you don't have to be a boy to work this kit magic into your life. In case you don't know where to find our kits I've got a link to the store here.

Got to love a good Octopus right? Especially a purple and orange one. What a great color combo to brighten up the Blue Fern Studios (Chesterfield) papers.

I pulled some things out of my stash, a large chipboard gear and colored it with the Spectrum Noir glitter markers in the Creativity Add On. They are fabulous! Gorgeous color and sparkle and they work magic on chipboard. I then embossed randomly over it.

I love me some pops of color so you see that Octopus worked quite well. I might have turned it into a butterfly pus though. ;) Tucked in some cheese cloth and added those gorgeous florals.  The large one was in the Main Kit by Ruby Rock It. The cute little safety pins are from BoBunny (clear stickers) found in the Elements Add on here.
I had bits and pieces of BoBunny items on hand from past kits. If you subscribe you will build up your collection too.

"Boys Will Be Boys" Design Team Reveal

Good Morning Friends,

Today I am sharing my first project created with the March "Boys will be Boys" kit from Scraps of Darkness. You can find this kit with all the add ons here.

BUT since I don't have boys just some girly girls I thought I would show you how this kit really works for anyone!
Stay Strong Layout by Lisa Novogrodski for Scraps of Darkness using the March kit "Boys will be boys"

I used the Blue Fern Studios (Chesterfield) papers in the background found in the Main Kit and mixed in BoBunny's (Life in Color) I love the mix of orange and blue with the Chesterfield papers.
The Blue Fern papers are in the Main Kit and the BoBunny ones are in the Coordinating paper found here.  I also pulled out my punches and just added a grungy punched look at the top.

 I embossed a couple of arrows, one I had on hand and the other was in the Elements Add On (Blue Fern Splatter Arrows) I used a distress crayon for the blue color (found in the Main Kit) and colored the brown arrow with Spectrum Noir Markers (found in the Creativity add on).

The stitch stamp is 49th and Market (Gabi's Stitch Stamp) found in the (Creativity Add On).
I also used some of the Bo Bunny Clear Stickers found in the Elements Add On.
