Love: Scraps of Darkness August kit, 2017

Hi everyone!I am here to share my newest layout made with the August, 2017, Scraps of Darkness, "Sparkle and Shine" kit.  This kit features Prima's "Rose Quartz" and Simple Stories "Beautiful" collections.

What a fabulous kit!  When I first received it, I thought, wow . . . there are so many possibilities!  I am happy that I ordered all of the add-ons,  because I do not want to run out of coordinating supplies.

Without further ado, here's my layout:

I just LOVE the Simple Stories "Shine Bright" paper, and used it as my background.  Since a black and white photo seemed best here, I used one of my favorites that I took of my husband and daughter last year. 

I added some interest to the background with "True Gold" paint, "Hickory Smoke" spray stain, and some white gesso splatters - both the paint and the spray stain are included in the color add-on.  The black feather, which I pulled apart and adhered to the back of my distressed and matted photo, and the music paper came in the elements add-on.  In addition, I had some fern chipboard pieces left over from last month's kit.  I painted them gold (with the True Gold paint) and viola, they were the perfect addition to this page.  And the gray Prima flowers were included in the main kit.

I have found that the monthly kits and add-ons go quickly!  If you don't want to miss out on anything, you can subscribe to the monthly scrapbook kit club.  You can get all of the information you need by clicking on the above links, or just visiting the online store.
