Today, I have a layout that I created with the Scraps Of Elegance November Kit~Sweet Sentiments. It features a photo of our Nephew Zachary when he was little, kissing Draven's check while he was sleeping in his carrier. Just one of those sweet, simple moments that my husband David happened to capture. They are both now all grown up and off making lives of their own, but they will always be forever young in my heart.
This kit has some really gorgeous papers in it and I used a bottom layer piece then took a 2nd layer and distressed it then punched it randomly with a note book punch and then tore pieces of some stash music note tissue tape and applied it to the edges. I then did some random painting and stippling with some Dina Wakley Gesso, and then went over it randomly with some butterscotch paint from my stash.
I then layered in more paper that I distressed and punched and fussy cut some pieces from some of the paper and then layered my photo onto the top.
I fussy cut the clock and flower piece from the papers and layered it over the edge of my photo with foam tape for lots of dimension. I then added on some Topaz Prima Winthrop Flowers, some Prima Manhatten flowers, and some past kit flowers that I texture painted. I then tucked in some twine bows made from the twine that was in this month's Embellishment add on and tucked it and cheesecloth into the flowers.
The Resin Frame and Owl are Reneabouquets Trinket pieces that you can find in my Reneabouquets Etsy, and Reneabouquets.com Store
I added more flowers, including the large yellow one that was from this month's Floral Add On, and tucked in more twine, cheesecloth and a Prima piece from my stash. The title was created by winding more of the twine around the brads in the kit and then tucking a fussy cut from the paper sentiment into the twine wraps.
The Moths with the light bulb bodies were created by taking a Stamp And Add Moth Wings Stamp, and stamping the Tim Holtz Frosted Sheets from the Embellishment Add On using Stayz On Ink, fussy cutting them out, and then apply the metal bulb from the stamp set onto the wings and attatching them to the layout with foam tape for dimension.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! That baby boy that is now grown up, Draven, is coming home for the weekend, and I will be so happy to see him!!! He may be out and creating a new life of his own, but he will always be my baby!!! Hugs ~Renea
