Wrapped Around Her Little Finger

So I have been struggling lately with my creativity mojo. I actually really dislike the last page I made for the Punky Scraps challenge 35 which is sad because it was a really great challenge, so if you are a super fast scrapper definitely go check it out because it's fab and you could win a great prize of Nikki Sivvils products. However I did force myself to create a page for the Dusty Attic November 2011 Sketch Challenge. The leaves are from Dusty Attic which I covered with liquid pearls. I figure if I throw myself into various challenges I will rediscover my creativity. I am hoping it will work. It should also help me finish some of the various albums I have going on for my family. So here it is 'Wrapped Around Her Little Finger':
This is my niece Shea gripping the finger of my father. I am making an album of Shea for my sister. I made this page with the November Scraps of Darkness kits which just made me think of my niece so don't be surprised if the rest of the pages I make from this kit all feature her.

Killer Clown

I have been so absolutely terrible lately about posting and scrapping. It's just that I feel like I haven't gotten any sleep for 3 weeks now. Every night my boyfriend and I keep waking up every two hours and when I do get some shut eye I am just plagued by the weirdest, most intense, and involved dreams (nightmares) so I definitely don't feel rested afterwards. I kinda just checked out emotionally lately. Today I tried so hard to just sleep and sleep and sleep. I gave up around 3. It's sad that I am comforted by the fact that my boyfriend is experiencing this as well, I think that makes me a bad person. Oh well.

With all of this going on it's crazy that I actually found inspiration to scrap. I think it's because of the amazing sketch that is Challenge 34 at Punky Scraps. Here is my page:
Here is the sketch that inspired it:
Isn't it awesome? So you should definitely head over to Punky Scraps and play. You could win some goodies from Nikki Sivils.

I created this with the October kit from Scraps of Darkness. Unfortunately I had to postpone my November kit till later in the month but it's kinda a good thing because at least now I am fully utilizing this awesome kit. I still have so much left it's crazy. Here are some close ups:

This page actually came together fairly quickly. I don't think I am super fond of it though. =/

The picture was taken at last years Halloween Horror Nights. We couldn't go this year because of finances :( However I will still have Halloween pictures to scrap from this year because we were able to go out with some friends. For the first time in 5 years my boyfriend and I had matching costumes. We were gangsters:
I do have a lot more pictures from Halloween last year that I need to scrap before I can move on to these so you'll probably see these pictures next year. I swear I am a year behind and I get further and further behind each day.

So today is the Challenge 33 Punky Scraps reveal and it is a fabulous one. So run over there and play along this month, you could win a fantastic prize!! Here is my page which I titled 'Pieces':
We were to be inspired by this picture:

and this quote:
I edited the picture in Photoshop and added the quote. Here is a close up:
The background was created with clear tar gel, coarse pumice gel, and different colors of mist. I first added the gels using the empty sheet that held some round pop up dots, so I used it as a stencil. I then poured so mist onto the page and randomly move it around to get the streaks. I also splattered so more colors afterward.
I changed the colors of the alphas with mist and used my heat gun on them so the mist bubbled up and created a cool texture. I sprayed some black mist over the flowers to darken up the page.
Afterwards I felt it was too dark so I added the red gemstones. I made this page mostly using the October Scraps of Darkness kit. I hope you enjoyed it!!
