Hello everybody!! Hope you are having a great week. I can tell we are really kicking into the Christmas Season, because I am starting to feel like time is rushing right at me and I don't have enough of it to go around!!
Today, I have a layout to share with you that I created with the Scraps Of Darkness November Kit~Water Lilies. My sister, Tammy has a photography studio and she had taken my son, Draven's Senior photos back at the end of Summer, and she sent me one of his photos printed out on this gorgeous metallic paper and asked me if I would scrap it for her. I told her I would, but would have to wait until I got a kit that was perfect for it. Well, the wait was over when I saw the Scraps Of Darkness November Kit, because the
7 Dots, 9th Wave papers and some of the elements were perfect for it, so finally I have it done for her!!
I love to do masculine work, but I don't like to use flowers with any of my male photos, once they are past a certain age or unless they are in a photo with a girl. I don't know what my hang up is about that, but I usually tend to use much more technique work when it comes to my masculine layouts than embellishment work, so this layout has lots of technique work on it:
distressing, inking, tearing, distress punching, corrugated board, 2 tone misting, seed beads, gel medium, stenciling, dry wall mesh, and alcohol inking.

I really love this layout, the colors are some of my favorite, the brick stenciling is one of my favorite stencils and well the subject matter, "Draven" is one of my favorite as well-lol!! I hope my sis loves it, but if she doesn't~it will be mine!!
Thanks for stopping by at this busy time of the year! I have some major lovey catching up that I need to do!! I promise as soon as I get two seconds I will be surfing the galleries again ;) Hugs, ~Renea
