The Scraps Of Darkness August Kit~ Weathered And Worn, has arrived and WOW is it a beauty!
I just couldn't wait to dive into it, and I went straight for the Shabby Country look.
I started by using modeling paste with a Doily stencil to randomly bring texture and depth to my first page. Next, I tore the 2nd layer into the shape I wanted, and layered it with some of the crochet lace trim from the kit peeking from under the left side.
Another layer was created with some torn, misted corrugated board, and then I created a photo matte for my picture from off white burlap.
At the top of the corrugated board, I added one of the Chipboard Frames that I painted and then colored and cut out a "Today" sentiment piece to top it.
Behind the photo I fussy cut a card piece from the kit papers and then added a little metal clip from a past kit and tucked it behind the photo.
I ran the large rope across the bottom of my layout, and then added one of the little canvas tags from the kit, that I used a rubon from a past kit to add a pattern to, and then topped it with a little Love Stick Charm from the Trinkets set in my Reneabouquets.com Shop. The Pink Lipstick Kisses Butterflies used were also from my Shop.
And here, I added cheesecloth, a past kit flower and from the floral add on as well as some in the right hand, top corner to finish off my look.
Thank you so much for dropping in and checking out my layout! Hugs ~Renea
