I absolutely love a good sketch! They are a really fun way to get scrapping if I'm lacking motivation, or can't think of a place to start. Sometimes, I try to stick closely to the design of the sketch, and sometimes I use it as a jumping off place for my layout.
I loved this sketch from Scraps of Darkness sketch designer Charlotte Jenkins (aka Suepup), and I followed her design fairly closely. I also wanted to try my hand at one of the dark, grungy layouts that their club is known for. I had a blast going to the dark side! This photo of my me and my husband on Halloween was perfect for my kit, and for the layout I had in mind. I was wearing a really fun devil Mardi Gras mask I bought for the occasion. I was torn between going as an angel or a devil, and the mask is what changed my mind.
I was also inspired by the song "(You're a) Devil in Disguise" by Elvis Presley! It was running through my head the entire time I was working on this page.
The only item I used, which was not a part of my kit was the title alpha (Pink Paislee) and rub-on (Pink Paislee). Thanks for looking!
Next stop on the blog hop is Karen's blog. I hope you have fun!! Don't forget to link your kits and projects to the Counterfeit Kit blog, for a chance to win one of those fabulous Scraps of Darkness kits!
I was able to complete a few more projects with my kit! This layout was for a gift album I'm doing for my mother-in-law, of photos from her childhood. I went with lighter colors like pink and white, which was a relief after all those really dark projects I've done lately. I discovered this Basic Grey Take Note transparency in my stash, and thought it worked perfectly with this page! The little houses are just right with the photo, and I was really pleased. I made the snowflake by applying Stickles through one of the stencils I included in my kit, and then cutting it out when it dried.
The card was something else I did for the paper piecing mini challenge. I thought a bird would be pretty, so I made a wedding card to have in my stash. Again, I went with a black/gray/white color scheme to get away from the dark reds I've been using. I'm very happy with how it turned out!
