"Now" Layout - Scraps of Darkness "Wayfarer" Kit!

Hello my friends!  I was super excited to start to use the new July Scraps of Darkness "Wayfarer" Main Kit along with the Elements Add On Kit for my new layout titled "Now".  I recently got some amazing pictures of my beautiful second nephew Otto, and I could not wait to use this awesome kit for these pictures.

Here are the previews of the Wayfarer Kit and Elements Add On Kit:



The little bit of red in the background of my picture was perfect for the tiny bits of red in the 49 and Market Dragonfly Revolution Layered Embellishments from the Elements Add On Kit.


The beautiful green paper from the Blue Fern Studios' Wonderlust Collection along with the Chipboard went along really well with my Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst colors "My Mojito Green" and "Ponderosa Pines Olive" that I used in the background.  I added a bit of 13@rts white SPLASH! ink with water to the "My Mojito Green" so that I can make it more of a matte finish.  To add depth to my background, I used one of the Hot Off The Press Compass Stamps with my StazOn black ink pad.


Part of the subtle layers in my background was using Liquitex Matte Gel Medium with the Prima Traveler's Journal Ephemera from the main kit.


I also used one of the Prima Ephemera Stickers for my title on top of the picture.


Finally, I have to point out these 49 and Market Flowers from the main kit... The elegant and vintage pop of yellow completely pulled the project together to my surprise.  This is the exact reason I first subscribed to the Scraps of Darkness and Scraps of Elegance monthly kits.  I never in a thousand years would have realized this amazing color scheme of the flowers with the papers and other embellishments without having this kit put together for me.  I don't think I could have come up with a better color scheme than this on my own.


Anyhow, that's about it!  For more design team inspiration and tutorials, check the Scraps of Darkness blog here.  Thanks for taking a look and have a fabulous day!
