Welcome to the August reveal for Scraps of Darkness.
The great thing about the Scraps of Darkness kit is that it is packed with versatile products that allow you the freedom to create art to fit your mood. And the mood of this months kit is fun, flirty Summer boldness. Summer seems to be slipping past us rather quickly. This kit will help us capture a little more of summer 2012 to hold onto forever.
This photo is one I took at Universal Studios in Florida, June 2012 in the world marketplace. We took my son and his friends for their 16th birthdays. (I saved for 18 months to pay for the trip- just so you don't think I'm "Jen moneybags".....hahaha).
The trip was supposed to be perfect. With saving that long, I had every detail in my mind covered. This is gonna be a SPECIAL trip. It's Florida and it's gonna be sunny and warm and beautiful. The ONLY detail of this trip I could not control in fact went wildly out of control. The weather.
BAM! We land in Florida and the sun shines so perfectly to welcome us to what's called "The Sunshine State". Which is then followed by Tropical Storm Debby where it rained crazy amounts of rain for a solid 4 days.
Yet we managed to have a wonderful time. Due to the rain and rather horrible weather forecast, attendance was significantly down at the Universal Theme Park. Instead of several thousand coming through the gate daily, we barely hit 1000. The park and all rides were open so we owned the park with no lines. And we were grateful for NO people because we all wore white plastic rain ponchos every day and looked rather silly - wet and silly. Not really a picture perfect vacation BUT memorable.
I used the Dusty Attic Vintage Frame DA0254 and painted it with gold Adirondack acrylic paint.
Please check out Scraps of Darkness and the art created by the rest of the wildly talented design team.
Thanks for looking. It really means the world to me.
My blog has some close ups and more technique detail.
