Spooky Time with Scraps of Darkness

Hi everyone!  I've gotten behind on my blog because I have had so much fun creating I haven't taken the time to share with you how.  It's the scariest time of the year, don't you just love it??  Here is my second little witch in my series of Halloween layouts (lo)!  I hope to hang them next year to enjoy!

Of course, I used the spooktacular Scraps of Darkness (SOD) October kit "Haunted" to create this haunting lo!  Bo Bunny's "Wicked" collection is featured in the kit and is perfect for all your Halloween fun!

I used Bo Bunny paper from the Main kit for the background.  I fussy cut the cemetery fence from an Authentique paper included in the Coordinating Add On.  Then, I added a black lace transparency that I bought from the SOD store.  Melinda always carries the coolest stuff. 

I die cut a couple of doilies from papers in the Coordinating Add On to tuck behind and in the layers of the photo.  I painted a piece of chipboard from my stash and used a script stamp on top.  I cut it into pieces and used it behind my flower clusters.  The flowers in the clusters either came from the Main Kit (black), Floral Add On (little purple rosettes) or from previous SOD/SOE kits.  I sprinkled little gold micro beads on top of the flowers.   I tucked in little pieces of cheesecloth which is included in the Creativity Add On. The cute little tiger's eye is included in the Elements Add On.

To the left side of the flower cluster I used a couple of Tim Holtz's rub-ons (skull and writing).  I also sprinkled some chunky black glitter that came in last year's SOD October kit. 

On the left side of the photo I glued a sweet little bat, with jewel red eyes.  He came from my stash of die cuts.

Above the bat on the left side I used a Blue Fern Studios chipboard from a previous kit.  I painted the center part of the sign and then used crackle paste on top to make it look old.  After the paste dried I rubbed distress black ink on it.  I painted the scrolls black.  I used a little die cut phrase from my stash and applied a little flower on the side. 

Here is the flower cluster at the top right hand side of the photo. The little spider and words were rub-ons that came in the Elements Add On.  Tooooooo cute!

Under that cluster I added the doily, some cheesecloth, and then little spider chipboards which I glittered with Stickles "Black Diamond".  The spiders came in an SOD October kit 3 years ago.  Yep!  I save everything.  Aren't stashes wonderful!!

And, how could we forget Mr. Raven?  He is another die cut from my stash.  I used Stickles around the edges and added his spooky red eye. 

And last I added a little tag from my stash.  I applied more of those sweet little spider rub-ons.  I am in love with these Tim Holtz goodies.  They rub on smooth as silk and adhere with minimal pressure. 

Have a Happy Halloween everyone!  Don't forget SOD/SOE kits can be purchased here:  http://www.scrapsofdarkness.com/kits/?sort=alphaasc
