Now onto a layout I created using the September Scraps of Darkness Passages Kit. This is for the Skeletons in the Closet Challenge over at the Scraps of Darkness forum. This month's topic is "Who Are You - When No One is Looking?

Unguarded Layout. This is a recent self portrait that I photo edited. I used the Scraps of Darkness Passages Kit which comprised of many wonderful Teresa Collins World Traveler papers. I cut one into strips to lay over the other to represent being locked up. I added the brick masking for this effect, too. I die cut cork pieces with my Vagabond and misted some Petaloo Color Me Crazy flowers with Smooch mists in Holly Berry and Wood Stain. The small flowers are Prima Londonerry. The flourished are from Bo Bunny's Et Cetera line. The hinges are from Vintaj. I added Rouge Liquid Pearls to the flourishes.

Unguarded Close Up. I added some hidden journaling on a tag that hides behind the photo matting. The butterfly is from Prima and the brads are from the Teresa Collins World Traveler collection. The journaling reads "When no one is looking, I let my guard down and truly become ME. I don't have to care about what every one else thinks or needs. I can relax and take care of my self."

Unguarded Close up 2. This is a close up of some of the misted flowers and cork flowers on this page.
