~*~Scraps of Darkness August Reveal~*~

Hello, all! It's reveal day for August at Scraps of Darkness! This month's kit is called Envy and as you can see from the photo of the main kit below, there are two reasons for this: one, most of the papers are green (Green with Envy); and two, everyone is going to be envious of you if you have this kit! Lol! Full of Kaisercraft papers in gorgeous damasks and leaf patterns and lush greens, this kit is perfect for romantic, elegant, outdoorsy, and heritage pages! This kit sparked my creativity and I finished four pages in 2 days!

Scraps of Darkness August Sketch by suepup (Charlotte).

Pa Layout. This is my page based on the August Scraps of Darkness Sketch. The photo is of my grandfather, who I called Pa. He was a soldier in WWII. I really loved the greens of this kit and some of the darker ones reminded me of the old Army green uniforms soldiers wore a long time ago. I wanted to create a page of my grandpa to go into my heritage album. I used some fern leaves from the kit, one Prima Parfait Collection flower in Wintergreen (colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang Mist in Ponderosa Pine Olive), Petaloo Canterbury Flowers in Lime, and some flourished made by me with Liquid Pearls in Bisque and some acrylic. I also used some Peeled Paint Crackle Paint and Distress Ink in Crushed Olive. I used one of Pink Paislee Mistables - Cut Tags colored with DI in Crushed Olive and some Versa Magic Ink in Hint of Pesto over some white foam Thickers alphas.

Bad Girl Layout. This is our newest addition to our family, Princess Charlotte Augustine aka Lottie. She looks so sweet; like an angel in her sleep.... but she is such a Bad Girl! Lol. If she isn't chewing on something, she is running around terrorizing our other dog, Attila. I decided to scrap this photo showing her in her sweetest form and make the colors reflect that but wanted to add a contradictory title. I used plenty of flowers from the kit, along with some bling and flower stems also from the kit. I fussy cut some of the papers and made it as frilly and girly as I could.

Sketch from Sketchy Thursdays - Sketch 8.4.

Pout Layout. These are my two lovely daughters goofing off while we were waiting at a restaurant. I used the sketch from August 4th for this page and I wanted to go darker for this one. I used water distressing on the edges of the black paper and splattered it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Mist in Ghouly Gargoyle White and Witch's Potion Purple  along with some white and purple acrylic paint. I added some silver liquid pearls and some half circles of paper from a previous Scraps of Darkness kit. I added some Pink Paislee Mistables Fuzzy Vinyl Stickers misted with the same purple mist. The title letters are vinyl Thickers. (For the Monochrome {Plum} Challenge at 

Angel Layout. This is a photo of my niece, Tawney, when she was first born. I wanted to scrap her photo with a lot of delicate colors but still have some steampunk accents in here without losing the femininity of it all. I colored the chipboard and metal pieces with Pearl Adirondack paint then covered them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals. The frame and figure are stamps from Tiddly Inks. (For the  Escape Kitty Family & friends Challenge and my every own Steampunk Challenge at

Angel Close Up. Here is a close up of the flower cluster and Steampunker stamp from Tiddly Inks. I colored her with my Copic markers. The gears and clock are colored with Pearl Adirondack paint and Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals.
