March Madness Comes to an End!

Happy Day Scrappy Friends!  It's Kathy again to share my last layout using the Scraps of Darkness March kit!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!  I'm checking in to share my last lo using the Scraps of Darkness (SOD) March kit.  This is my son, Patrick at the top of the mountain.  He is a member of the National Ski Patrol on Mt. Alyeska, so he is out saving people when they crash and burn.  In this photo he is in the "ski shack", which I understand is about ready to fall down the mountain it is so rickety.  

Once again I wanted the layout to be about texture, not embellishments.  I started by using the Blue Fern Studios "Chesterfield" papers for the background.  I stenciled, stamped, and splattered lots around the page.  

The best part about being a Scraps of Darkness kit club member is that you accumulate lots of leftovers that can be used for other kits.  That's what I did for this layout.  With the exception of the chipboard, all the sentiments, papers, tags, etc., are from older kits.  It's so much fun to use up your scraps.  

The corrugated colored cardboard that is running across the middle I purchased at least 8 years ago.  I fussy cut the zig-zag paper to emulate mountains.  I used my favorite new die from Memory Box along the top to add texture.  

I used Lindy's Ink to paint the triangle chipboard (from my stash).  I wanted them to look like mountains.  I used little wooden triangles to break up the color and texture.  

The chipboard title on the photo came from my stash.  And, to add frosting to the cake, I added cheesecloth around the top and bottom of the photo to look like clouds and snow.  

I thought you would like to see a photo showing all the layers from the side.  

Tip of the Day:  If you cut your cheesecloth on the bias (sideways, not straight across the grain) it will fray more and give you a wonderful stringy look.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Hope to see you real soon!
