Leo - Scraps of Darkness

Leo Mixed Media Cat Shabby Chic Scrapbook Layout by Dana Tatar for Scraps of Darkness Kit Club

Happy Valentine's Day! I'm sharing another layout that I created with the February Our Story Kit from Scraps of Darkness, featuring the Prima Love Clippings collection. I snapped this photo of my Sister-In-Law's cat while I was home visiting over Christmas. I used the Prima Love Clippings All of Me Loves All of You patterned paper, B-Side up, for the base of this page.

I love the distressed look of this patterned paper. I added more layers of color and texture in a similar fashion by using a spatula with the Dina Wakley Media Blushing Heavy Body Acrylic Paint from the Creativity Add-On, the Lindy's Stamp Gang Cocoa Bean Copper Starburst Mist from the Color Add-On, the Lindy's Stamp Gang Milk Chocolate Magical Shimmer Powder from the Main Kit, and the Blue Fern Studios Charred Bricks Glitter from the Elements Add-On that I mixed with clear crackle glaze to help stick. Once that was dry I stamped over the background with the Ruby Rock-It Bella! Champagne Bubbles stamp from the Main Kit and the Prima Chocolat Dye Ink from the Color Add-On.

The B-Side of the Deeply In Love patterned paper has wonderful journaling cards to cut apart. I used two of them on this page at the top and bottom of my page as an alternative to stamping. These cards were really fun to embellish! I colored the chipboard heart from the Blue Fern Studios XOXO Laser Cut Chipboard set with the Blue Fern Studios Garnet Embossing Powder from the Creativity Add-On.

I colored the Kaisercraft Chipboard Alphabet letters from the Main Kit with the Dina Wakley Media Blushing Heavy Body Acrylic Paint from the Creativity Add-On. Once that was dry I mixed the Lindy's Stamp Gang Milk Chocolate Magical Shimmer Powder from the Main Kit with water and dripped the solution onto the letters for a cool water-stained shimmery finish.

I colored the Blue Fern Studios XOXO chipboard with the Prima Chocolat Dye Ink from the Color Add-On. I tucked the chipboard between layers of patterned paper that I cut from the Journaling Notecards (Main Kit) and the 6x6 Love Clippings Collection Kit from the Creativity Add-On. These smaller paper pads really helped me stretch the life of my kit.
