Two layered shabby chic layouts - July Wayfarer kit

Hi everyone Laura here.....
I do not create very many layouts about me but I really do believe it is important that we as the memory keepers (scrapbookers) include ourselves in  our creations!
So here is....me....


Last fall my talented niece captured this photo....I like it!

So using the absolutely awesome Scraps of Darkness 'Wayfayer' kit which has these beautiful 'Wanderlust' papers from  Blue Fern Studios I created this layout about me!

I started by layering these wonderful papers and distressing all the edges....


I created the title using one of the calling cards and adding some letter stickers


I added a chipboard and a couple of strips of paper and one of the beautiful Blue Fern flowers and a few gems from a previous kit


To accent the photo I used 3 of the wanderlust flowers and coordinating chipboard!


I am so in love with this kit!!!!
I love the colors of it!  Perfect for almost any subject!
But one thing I love t o to is layer my papers when I create and this kit was full of papers that are perfect for that!  Perfect for this awesome photo my niece took of my hubby and our boys!


I started by layering all the wonderful Blue Fern papers and to add more texture I added the burlap piece from the main kit!


I created a cluster using flowers from the floral add on, previous kits and my stash.  I also added the sweet fern pieces....


For the title piece and fern pieces - from Blue Fern studios - I took brown and blue distressed stain from previous kits and when they mixed they created the green color you see!


I added a few butterflies from a previous kit! 


Here you can see all the layers!

Thanks for stopping by
