The Neutral Side if the Scraps of Darkness January Kit

One of the fun parts about being on a kit club DT is challenging myself to use every aspect of the kit. I stay true to my "style" but I like to show how versatile a good kit it-like this one!
So today, I'd like to share a layout created with the neutrals in the kit plus add-ons and some of my own stash. Here is my result:

I'm lucky to have a photogenic daughter who is a good sport about doing photo shoots-I always have a pic for (most) any color scheme. She is an avid book worm and music lover so I knew these papers were perfect!
All the papers shown are from the kit and paper add-ons. I covered an old frame by mod-podging one of the BoBunny cut outs. I fussy cut multiple layers of papers and distressed then inked them.

I love the "smile" embellishments and colored mine in with gold sharpie and affixed it to a beaded ribbon from my stash with glossy enamel. The large ivory doily is also from my stash but the lovely gold lace trim is from the kit-it feels like luxory! I used it again as trim on the right side of my page.

The flowers are from the floral add-on of the February Scraps of Elegance Kit. The metal feathers from the kit were attached to the large flower to add a bit of edge and variety of textures.

These sweet bird chippies are by Blue Fern and included in the kit. First I colored them with peach gelatos and stamped them in brown with a Something Tattered stamp. I added white highlights before covering them with glossy accents. I found some chicken wire chippies from my stash that I added because they coordinate with the BoBunny background paper. I left them bare with Bisque stickles at the joints.

Here's my second bird on the left corner of my page. I added peach gelato to all the black and white flowers to add warmth. The sweet little buttons are from my thrift store stash as well.
