A touch of my Dark Side...

I usually get my desk diary from 
Wonky Broomsticks as it runs from October,following
 the pagan year and including lots of yummy extras. But 
Kate couldn't bring herself to work on it this year
 after the sudden loss of her Mother(which is totally 
Instead I have bought a regular desk diary...
so it needed a bit of a re-vamp.
This is now my creation for 

I found these yummy "dark" papers at The Works
for under £5...and yes they are 12 x 12 AND double sided!!!
I cut a piece of the grey/blue floral as a base layer...

used Soot Black TH distress ink to stencil ornate

dug out my TH ephemera pack, and selected a few
suitable pieces to layer up :D
all the pieces are "grunged up" a little
and the time on the clock is ...
20:19 (couldn't resist lol)

Hope you enjoyed this little project :D
