Documented With The Scraps Of Darkness April Kit~His & Hers

Scraps Of Darkness Reveal It's April Kit~His & Hers

A match made in Heaven... Our April kit features two of the most gorgeous collections out there right now: Prima's Cartographer and Stationer's Desk! We're calling this kit "His & Hers", the perfect marriage of elegant masculine and femine collections. The possiblities of what you can do with this kit are endless. We are honored to bring you this vintage inspired kit, and truly hope you will enjoy creating with it!

Here is the wonderful and inspiring sketch by our very own Sue Pup:

And the following is my take on the sketch that features a photo of my sweet Granny when whe was young. My cousin, Becky had put me together a disc with lots of my Granny and Grandpa's photos on it after they passed away a few years back and I just love going through them every once in a while. It's so funny how someone you knew your whole life, can still be a mystery to you. I don't know who the person is in the photo with her, but I just love the moody feel to it and the overexposure just adds to the mystery.

I started with lots of layers, punching and paper curling one of the corners, then stenciling with a Prima Damask Stencil and modeling paste.

Under the photo I layered Doilies, distressed paper and some fussy cut pieces that I cut from the gorgeous Prima packaging that held the kit flowers.

I pleated one of the cut off tabs of the paper and arranged it so that the "Documented" showed, then layered in some stash flowers and a flower from the Floral Add On, and some kite string done into a double bow.

I added a stash Tim Holtz book plate and then added in stash flowers and Floral Add On Flowers on top of it. The Precious Keepsakes Butterflies are from my Reneabouquets Etsy Shop, and the paper clip piece is from the kit.

At the top of the page I did a tear down  accented with kit, stash and more kite string, as well as a stenciled damask  accent.

Here you can see where I tucked a pleated Doily under the paper curling to tie in with the ones under the photo and for yummy dimension.

This kit really is a stunner!! I am so fortunate to get to work for Scraps Of Darkness and Scraps Of Elegance!! They truly are the most wonderfully, unique kits around , and I just love the versatility to create just about anything I am in the mood for. 

I hope you get to create something special for yourself this weekend, and to get to spend some time making precious memories with the ones you love. Hugs ~Renea
