Elias James ~~Scraps of Darkness~~

This layout is of my #3 grandson Elias at the Summer Arts Festival this last weekend.  We had so much fun, getting their faces painted!!  He was a little lion and was in his stroller roaring at everyone, lol!!  This month's kit at Scraps of Darkness is full of  BoBunny's Zoology Collection and went perfect with these photos I thought.  For this page I used the following Zoology papers:  Wild Thing & Tiger.  I also used some of the cut-outs and stickers that were included in the kit.  I topped a couple of the flowers from Prima (Eminence Collection) with some metal trinkets included with the kit.  The Prima "Flowered Tendrils Tangerine went really well  with this lo.  I also used the Petaloo Floral Embellies (Darjeeling Collection) that came in the kit and stamped them with an old grid stamp using the Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Crushed Olive) to match the title cutout.  The leaves were from Art Parts by Studio 490.  First I painted them with some Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint (Peeled Paint) and let that dry.  Then I pressed some Tim Holtz Distress Stain (Wild Honey).  After that dried a little I sprayed the entire leave with some Goosebumps Clear Texture Spray.  For the title I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Crushed Olive) and topped that with some Stickles (Paprika) along with the small dragonflies.  For the circle border I used Lisa's (StarSailor's) method using a Martha Stewart corner punch.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!  Thanks so much for all your sweet comments, it's much appreciated!!
