Getting to know Mandy Harrell

Lets get to know Mandy!

Hi, I'm Mandy Harrell aka CraftySprinkles! I've been designing for Scraps of Darkness since the very first kit and I have had such a blast with this club, the owner, and all the wonderful people who are a part of it, both on the DT and the subscribers!!  I absolutely love it here!!

         What is your favorite color to scrap with?
I love working with all colors, however, if the shades are too bright them I tend to struggle more. I would say my absolute favorite is all the shades of brown
          Were you named after someone?
My mom says no, but she was a HUGE Barry Manilow fan and that song came out the year before I was born, so I’m thinking Mandy came from that lol.
      Do you have a pet? What kind?
I have 2 dogs, 1 cat, 3 horses, 8 cows, 9 sheep, and 2 rabbits.  
      Show us your favorite SOD/SOE layout you have created.

Romy's layered loveliness!!!!

Hi everyone!
I hope you are all having a great week!
Today I want to show Romy's version of the sketch!
I just adore the way she layers!

look at all these yummy layers
and the beautiful embellishment cluster

 Hope this layout inspires you to layer!

Helena's pretty pretty pages!

Hi everyone!
First I wanted to show you Helena's soft and delicate
page - Stunning!

she created with the papers from Fabscraps in beautiful grey, pink and white shades.
To add contrast she used the black doily and black punched edges!

using this months color add and gesso she painted the fabulous chipboard pieces from the kit.
She add some glossy accents and Prima button!

The Texturez from the color add-on gave the roses a fabulous shabby look!

Next up is  her sweet version of this months sketch!

I love the cascading flowers!

here are some close ups of the details!

Thanks for stopping by!

More sketch interpretations with Lisa, Mandy and Laura

I really wanted to share more mojo inspiration
interpretations of this months sketch!

here is Lisa Novogrodski version!

Simply WOW!

now onto the gorgeous details

look at the layers with some cheesecloth tucked in with the gorgeous flowers
from the flower add on

so many fabulous layers!

next up is Mandy 

I love how she treated the photo!

To get the outline effect, she used oil pastels!! 
isn't it a totally cool effect?
and used the heart template from the color add on and the white pen from the kit

 she bent the little stick pin from the embellishment add on
 for the base of the tear.  
and last up we have the newest addition to the Scraps of Darkness Team
Laura Gilhuly
Laura really utilized the white pen, outlining most of her elements and the paper!

she made some beautiful flowers also highlighted with the white pen!

To create the hearts she used the stencil from the color add on, molding paste then she 
'painted' on the mist! Isn't that a neat idea???

added one of the really cool buttons from the kit to her tags!

Check back tomorrow for more inspiration!

Renea's Spectaularly pretty mini!

This mini is just beaming with beauty

she emphasized the gorgeous gate design, with tons of technique work on it, she first painted it, then added a pink crackle finish to it, then some script stamping, some puffy paint texturing, and some seed beed puddling. 

She used a jewellery piece that she altered for the closure with velcro on the other side

The pink seam binding on the D-rings and throughout the album was from the Album Add On.   The vine she hand crafted using some hand tinted mulberry roses and leaves, and then the other flowers were from past SOE kits.

The butterflies are her Oh So Pinkalicious Glitter Glass Butterflies that were created just for this kit

The little girls that are tucked in to the flowes on this side were fussy cut from some of the Paper Add On papers, then coated in Diamond Glaze that came with a past kit, to make them more durable. 

This album opens up so gorgeously, swinging out to reveal each layer. 
she made little pockets from some of the Embellishment Add On pieces, and tucked in tags from the kit, and a stamped dress form she added little flowers from the Mini Album Add On, and created spaces for photos.
The inside pages are full of beautiful details and amazing techniques!
