Total Calm - Scraps Of Darkness

Total Calm - Scraps Of Darkness
This is a photo I took of my boys by Lake Ontario in August 2011.  My oldest had just moved back home after being gone for 5 months.  He was thrilled to be home and I was happy to have him back in the nest. 

This was created using the Scraps Of Darkness Victoriana Kit and mixing it with the December kit that featured the Bo Bunny Enchanted line of paper.   

Below I used the Dusty Attic Cogs #1 DA0001.   I inked them with Tim Holtz Stormy Sky distressing ink then covered with Crackle Accents.  I added some shells from the beach as well.

Here is a better close up of the really great colors the Stormy Sky creates on the Dusty Attic. 
I used some white cheese cloth and some dyed black. 

Here is the photo of my boys.  OK - yeah I know they don't look thrilled to be here, but I chalk that up to teen angst.  Inside they just bubble with excitement. 

Thanks for looking and have a great day and consider joining us over at Scraps Of Darkness or the sister kit, Scraps of Elegance. 


  1. So gorgeous. I love how you combined the cogs and bling. I love the pic too because that is so being a teenager and too soon those days are gone! But you know...come to think of it... my boys are 27 and 30 now and they still have the same expression on their faces when they're photographed. hmmmmm.

  2. I love this one Jenn, beautiful colors!!!!!
