Daddy and Friends - Scraps Of Elegance

Hanging Out With Dad - Scraps Of Elegance
This is not particularly elegant, but my intention is to show you that you can adapt the kit to fit your needs. Don't get hung up on the name of the kit.  If you love doing stronger masculine layouts, or have a whole lot of men and boys in your life that you scrap, this kit is easily adaptable!  No worries there.

This is a photo taken from Terra Free Images called Dad, Me, Johnny and Johnny's Friend.   

The flower was made using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and some paper bags, the I misted and inked them.  I rubbed a thin layer of gold leaf wax rub over the petals to give them some glitz.

Here is my beloved Dusty Attic Chicken Wire 12x12 DA0457 pictured, inked with Tim Holtz Distress ink in Vintage Photo.
The  thin ribbon can in the kit and tied some vintage book pages together.  I just misted it the color I needed and rubbed the gold leaf wax rub on it to give it a more robust vintage appearance.

The metal star and button were clearance finds at Joann's in the fall.

Thanks for looking.
