Hello lovelies...I love to create pages that are light and sweet but every once in a while I want to create something dark and mysterious....


So I started with some papers from the Pion Design collection called 'A Day in May'. The background paper is called 'Brown Ornament', and I used the other side of that paper which is brown stripes underneath my photo to play off of the stripes of this beautiful girls dress.

Here are a few close ups:

 I had so much creating this layout. I colored my background with my Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays. I used Dark Chocolate Truffle, Buccaneer Bronze, Danny Zukco's Denim, and Midnight Rendezvous Raven. I love how the background turned out so chaotic and deconstructed, it brings out the tragic beauty of this girls photo.

I haven't embossed anything for a while, so I bought some new embossing powders, love them! 
I embossed this chipboard piece in black, silver and copper really messily, 
love how it looks like old rusted metal.

This is my favourite kind of layout...just full on crazy with colors and textures. After adding my flowers I also used my two favourite Finnabair products, glass beads, and then I went over everything with gold mica powder, there is just nothing like that Prima mica powder, it's such an intense and rich color. 

Thanks for looking,
Lisa xo


  1. Oooohh, sensational! I love your treatment of the chippie especially!

  2. Yup, I'm with Heather re the chippy treatment...lit really does look like rusted wire! And deconstructed is such a good word! My faves the bit is that little butterfly tucked's sort of like a statement about your page...I rather enjoy it when you go to 'the dark side', too!!!!

  3. Gorgeous! This is 'hauntingly' beautiful! I love everything you do!

  4. The rich luxurious treated chipboard adds so much dimension , interest and texture to your Agnes masterpiece.
