Just About The Details

life on pretty paper

A Child Is Born – Scraps of Darkness July “Marrakesh Express” kit


I created this 12 x 12 layout as a birthday present for my aunt.  TONS of stitching on this…paper pieced together the Madonna and Jesus with the amazing patterned paper (be sure and check out the up-close photos…as I included some ‘not so obvious’ details)  that makes up this AMAZING kit….be sure and get over to www.scrapsofdarkness.com to see this kit, be sure and visit the Shoppe for so many awesome embellishments and papers too! 

up-close photos:

Above, if you look closely you will see that I used a pocket dictionary page for the face….Madonna (Mother Mary)’s face is the “love” definition.

The face of baby Jesus is the dictionary page for “birth.”

above…Mary’s hands are the definition of Madonna.

I used the Tim Holtz Texture stamps for the “crackle” finish on the background piece behind the Madonna and Jesus.

TFL my friends! I hope this inspires you to create something! 🙂
