Hi! I'm sharing the first layout I created with the Scraps of Darkness May Attic Finds Kit today. The textures and prints in this kit are so fun to work with! I paired leather and flowers together with a photo of a vintage suitcase I took while visiting the Detroit Antique Mall on a recent trip home for this first page. If you're interested in reading more about the antique treasures that can be found in a large city, CLICK HERE to read my article about my gypsy travels to Detroit, Michigan. I personalized this layout a bit by adding the Detroit area code to the bottom right corner. I cut these numbers from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Emporium Ephemera Pack.

I used half a sheet of the Authentique Rugged One patterned paper (May Main Kit) and a half sheet of the 7 Gypsies Architextures Vintage Bunting patterned paper (May Patterned Paper Add-On) for the base of my layout. I used the Prima Wild Flowers 6x6 Stencil (Scraps of Darkness Store) with the Prima Finnabair Art Extravagence Rust Effect Paste Set (May Creativity Add-On) to add a colorful textured pattern onto the Rugged One paper.

Next, I added the 7 Gypsies Architextures Stacked Suitcases Adhesive Embellishment and one decorative piece from the 7 Gypsies Junque Embellishments Pack to the page  (May Elements Add-On). These embellishments look and feel like real leather!

I cut a frame for my photos from the 7 Gypsies Architextures Ornate Frames patterned paper (May Patterned Paper Add-On). I tucked fussy cut flower clusters between this frame and my photos. I added a title to the page using Mr. Smith's Workshop Thick Alphabet Stickers (May Elements Add-On). I love the wood burned look!

Finally, I added several flower clusters made from the May Floral Add-On to the page.

Several of the Add-On kits are still available from the Scraps of Darkness Store, but they are going fast! It's not too late to pick up the supplies to create a fantastic gift for Father's Day. I wrote a companion article that details some of the features of the Architextures embellishment line and more about my antique finds from Detroit, Michigan.
