Be in Love with Your Life...Every Minute of It ~ Scraps of Darkness

I have one final layout created with the Scraps of Darkness February A Touch of Grey Kit to share with you today. I used the amazing Kaisercraft Art of Life collection and stuck with a neutral palette for this layout featuring my son on his third birthday - he LOVED his cake!
For the background, I did some masking with a Crafter's Workshop template and modeling paste mixed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in Gag Me with a Spoon Grey and a hint of Midnight Rendezvous. I also did some stamping (with a Tim Holtz Ticket Stamp) using watermark ink and Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing powder in Golden Angel Wings. The final step on the background was some stitch stamping with gesso around the edge and then a whitewash of Gesso over the background page.
Next, I layered pieces of the Thankful and Love papers with some of the Kaisercraft Art of Life collectables, along with some Prima packaging and some vellum view-master reels I cut on my Silhouete Cameo. I used a collectables piece for the title and also used the #3 domino on the "Today" card to show that he was three on that day! I didn't feel the layout needed a lot of embellishing so I added a Prima metal clock-face and some Basic Grey grey pearls. I finished the layout off with splatters of Dylusions in Black Marble and Lindy's Stamp Gang Glitz Spritz in Steel Shimmer. Here are a couple more close-ups!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I've got more projects coming soon from the new Scraps of Darkness March  "Radioactive" Kit - check out the kit reveal and my first project here!
