I don't know about you, but the summer is flying by for me!!! Of course, it doesn't help that we only have 3 months of it in Alaska lol!!!
I have another layout to share using the Scraps of Darkness July Kit "Tracey's Artful Adventure". This layout (lo) was a real challenge, and took me more time than I wanted it to, but I'm happy with the results and that I didn't rush too much. It's a photo of my son, Patrick and my 2 grandsons Chase and Cameron (ages 6 and 4). The photo was taken down on the Kenai Peninsula, which is where all the fish are. It was the first time that Uncle Pat took the boys out. Patrick is an avid Alaskan fisherman. He should be, he's been doing it since he could walk!
I used Kaisercraft's "Scrap Yard" collection and wonderful script tissue paper, which were included in the kit. I matted the photos with Bo Bunny's "Mama-Razzi" from an older SOD kit. The 2 collections really seemed to work well together.
Then I tore the sheets of paper into a design for the background. As you can see from the photos below, I did a lot of texture (white design) using modeling paste and a stencil. Next I stamped like crazy using the cutest stamp from Finnabar, which was also included in the kit. Too much fun!
After I layered and matted the photos, I created a little circle out of some florals from the local craft store to put behind the left photo. I used some moss and lichen as embellishments along with the beautiful flower which was included in the Floral Add-On for the kit. I had to add some little beads to the flower and moss to add a little sparkle! The title is actually the bottom strip of the paper.
I hope you enjoyed viewing my little project, and that you will consider joining the Scraps of Darkness kit club. The kits are truly amazing!!!! You can check them out here:
