I just can't get enough of this Scraps Of Darkness, June Kit! I love getting to scrap photos of my son, and these pps where just perfect for it. The base layer is a piece of kit pp that I deep distressed, and stained the edges with the stain from the color add on. For the frame piece, I cut the middle from a piece of the cardstock add on, distressed the outside and inside edges and stained them. I then took the middle piece of the cardstock, shaved an inch from 2 sides, then distressed and stained the edges. When I attatched these pieces, I used foam tape to add dimension to my layout.

 I centered my photo where I wanted it, and then took some Tim Holts Fragments and created an arangement and marked where I wanted them to go. I then took animal and print images from the kit Bo Bunny pps , tore the edges and inked them. Attached them with Glossy Accents Glue and then painted the edges of the fragments with Tattered Angels Glam. I then glued them in place.

 Next I took some Dusty Attic Chicken Wire and cut it to fit the corners. I then painted it with crackle paint from the color add on. I used 2 Dusty Attic Ornate Corners , that I Glammed and then spot painted with the same crackle paint and popped them onto the corners.

I stamped with a Glitz Distress stamp to take up some of the "white" space, and then took some burlap and ruffed it up placed it at 2 of the photo corners for texture.  Took some trim pieces from the kit and added them below the stamping at each end.

To add a pop of color and texture, I added a Prima flower from the Flora & Fauna add on, and tucked it under the photo. I then used some Rub Ons to add interest and the title to the photo.

If you have some masculine photos you are needing to scrap, you can't go wrong with this months kit! Thanks for letting me share my masculine work with you!  ~Renea
