Sweet Memories Layout~Created with the Scraps Of Elegance November Kit-Sweet Sentiments & Mood Board

Pinks, soft teals, and buttercream yellows mixed with white and hints of black, ooooohhhhh the stuff that sweet dreams and the November Scraps Of Elegance Kit are made of!!
So perfect for capturing those sweet moment and sentimental memories.
Pair the kit with this month's Scraps Of Darkness/Scraps of Elegance Mood Board that you can find here:

 and you get inpiration of the SWEETEST kind!!

I used those divine pinks, buttercream yellows and soft teals to create the following layout of my God-daughter Michelle with her son Mason on her wedding day:

I layered in some of the kit paper, then took a 2nd piece and punched around the edges. I then water distressed the punching to give my layout dimension and a really soft look. I then inked up a paper Doily with some paste kit Ingvild Bolme ink, distressed, and inked the edges of another kit paper piece and then layered on my photo. 

I created floral layers around my photo using;
Yellow flowers from this month's Floral Add On, some small pink roses from my stash, 

and some Prima Noble Flowers, that I tucked in some stash leaves that I tipped with Dina Wakley Gesso, some of the Resin Swirls from this month's Embellishment Add On that I inked with Tim Holtz Bundled Sage Ink.

The bricks were in a past SOE kit and I stipple painted them with Dina Wakley Gesso, and then frosted the "bricks" with some of my Reneabouquets Pink Chunky Glitter Glass
I then created texture by wrapping some of the twine from the Ephemera pack in the kit and tucking that into the flowers. I added in a set of my Reneabouquets Cherub Die Cuts,

 did some stamping around the bricks with the stamp that was in the kit and then dripped some of the gesso and added Reneabouquets Pink Chunky Glitter Glass and Reneabouquet Silver Microbeads to the drips for lots of texture and visual interest. 

The chipboard piece was from the kit and I painted it white with Gesso, then took the stamp from the kit and stamped it in black and then added on a rhinestone button that I had saved from a jacket to upcycle. The Divine Butterflies are from my Reneabouquets Etsy and Reneabouquets.com Store. 

I hope you get a chance to come over the Scraps Of Darkness/ Scraps Of Elegance Facebook Community page and play along with the Mood Board this month. You do not have to be a kit member to play along with our fun challenges, and it is always so much fun!! Hugs~Renea
