August Scraps of Darkness Projects-It's beginning to look a lot like...yep, Christmas!

Hello! Today I want to share my latest projects with the Scraps of Darkness' August kit, "Kathy's Nature Walk". My first is a scrap page pulling the green and red elements of the kit. Many of you know how I love all things Christmas so I just couldn't resist!

Everything except for the red flower is from the kit. How sweet is Blue Fern deer?
Here are some close-ups:

I am in the process of repainting and refurbishing my bedroom furniture and used the Creativity Add-on to rescue my outdated brass knobs and a thrift store pail.

First, the easiest way to paint knobs is to thread them into cardboard-like the handy packages our kits arrive in :) I first covered them with the patina and let them dry. I then brushed on the chalk paint. once that dried I used the distressing tools to bring up the jade and hints of the brass. I stamped with a light grey then covered them with the Ranger Glaze. Once dry, I returned them to my chalk painted dresser and love the shabby patina of them!
I treated this thrift store brass bucket the same way-I love the layers of colors:

That's all for today-thanks for stopping by!
