Fabulously wicked

The full moon can do crazy things, even to cats! My sweet darling Sasha can go from day to night in a heartbeat. One minute she's absolutely fabulous, the next, she is oh so wicked!

For this layout I used the kit "Midnight" from Deli Scraps by Min, which you can find here:


The following are changes I made to elements or papers provided in the kit to achieve the various effects in my layout. To create the background paper, I overlayed the orange paper from the kit onto a black background using the blend mode dissolve. I then heavily reduced the opacity, resulting in the "stars." The moon was clipped from the moon paper and sized down. Pieces of some elements were clipped to accomodate layering #e.g. the stem from the flowers and the handle from the umbrellas#. I also added additional leaves and beads to the cluster by clipping them from the vine. All of the elements are shadowed. To create the photo mats, I cut out a circle from the brown paper. I reduced the hue and saturation until the paper tone was black. The entire layout is overlayed with orange paper, the opacity again reduced significantly and the blend mode set to soft light to achieve the sepia effect. I played with the adjustment levels on the bat to darken it from gray to black. For the wordart, I added some outer glow to highlight it against the black background. Finally, the font that I used is Chiller. I hope I got everything!

I didn't see the kitty in the thumbnail pic, and was just loving the gorgeous clusters, I clicked and they magically appeared! Waaaaaaaaaay cool! I still am just transfixed at your cluster and love love love the idea of putting a whole page over the layout and blending to bring a cohesive feel...that is a great thing! Thank you for sharing that.

Wonderful LO! I didn't really think one could do a more "traditional" LO with this kit - but you've just shown one can! And just how one can! Fabulous clustering! and the evil looking little kitty - I bet he/she's the sweetest creature walking this earth! Love the blending - love everything about this LO!
