Amazing - Scraps of Darkness August Sparkle + Shine Kit

Solar Eclipse Scrapbook Layout with Black Galaxy Background Stars and Flowers

Hi! I'm sharing the first layout I created with the Scraps of Darkness August Sparkle + Shine Kit. The foiled accents on the patterned papers, metallic paint, and shiny sequins were the perfect supplies to use to document the photo of my husband and I that we snapped before the solar eclipse last month. We were able to see the eclipse in totality, and it was an amazing experience. I created a galaxy background with polka dot patterned paper (Main Kit: Simple Stories Simply Wonderful), star die-cuts (Main Kit: Simple Stories Beautiful Bits and Pieces Die-Cuts), and clear star stickers (Elements Add-On: Simple Stories Beautiful Clear Stickers). I also incorporated some left-over product from the Scraps of Darkness February 2017 Our Story Kit: the glitter flake pink Prima Emma Roses, stars from the BoBunny Copper Accents Foil Transfers Rub-Ons, and a moon-themed card from the Prima 3x4 Love Clippings Journaling Notecards. I couldn't resist adding flowers to my design; some of which were cut from the patterned papers, and others that were part of the Floral Add-On. In my world, flowers can survive in space!

I built this flower cluster by starting with a base of flowers and leaves cut from the Prima Stone Quartz and Simple Stories Follow Your Heart patterned papers. I borrowed a fern leaf for texture from the 49 and Market Natural Blush Seaside Blooms (Floral Add-On). I topped the cut papers with two flowers from the 49 and Market Galaway Gray Floral Mixology (Floral Add-On).

I created a journaling spot on the top corner of my photo with a section that I cut from the Simple Stories Vertical Elements Patterned Paper. I cut around the flowers and banner and slid that portion of the paper on top of my photo, leaving the map portion of the patterned paper behind.

I used the Jacquard Lumiere True Gold Acrylic Paint, Tim Holtz Hickory Smoke Spray Stain, and Tim Holtz Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Ink Pad on the background of this layout. I also added some pink glitter glue, which is not included in the kit, for some extra sparkle. Once the colored mediums were dry, I glued down sequins, star die-cuts, clear star stickers, and star foil rub-ons.
I'm really loving the versatility of the products in this kit. I've created a fun mix of both clean and simple and shabby chic designs. If you missed my previous projects, click on the links below.
