When Pappy Was a Baby – Vintage Revelry Scraps of Darkness March kit


Another layout I created with this magnificent March kit “Vintage Revelry” from www.scrapsofdarkness.com ! Have I mentioned that I LOVE this kit! I found it very fun, versatile, and a little out of my comfort zone to create with…and I am thrilled with my results and hope you are too! 🙂

I think this is my favorite layout that I created with this amazing kit.  I love how this photo and my design worked with the background paper….love the birdcage….LOVE how my flowers turned out.  I used all of the patterns of the Paper Loft collection included in this kit to make these flowers….I actually decoupaged the paper onto the leaves of some Prima flowers….and I really LOVE how easy it was and I love the end result.  I used my glue gun to adhere the flowers to the page (I like my embellishments to stay put!) 🙂  I know it may look like a simple page design…but a lot of time and love went into this.  Love this photo of my dad when he was a baby….it’s striking how much he looks like my nephew Lucas….but I also see my own kids in this baby face.  I did some subtle masking/misting on the background paper which I feel adds to the beauty of the paper without overwhelming it.  What do you think? I love your feedback and comments!

Here are some up-close photos:

TFL!  This is the last layout I will be posting tonight…but I have 2 more layouts to share in the coming days….tomorrow I will be sharing my Twisted Sketch #92 and Sunday another layout using this amazing kit!!!so stay tuned!!!!
