Preserving the Past ~ Scraps of Darkness

Here is the new kit for March called Vintage Revelry. I love the muted brown tones, perfect for my old photos. The color-add on this month is flipping amazing!! There were so many mists, I didn't know what to start off with. I will enjoy using each one of them. A package of birdcages came in this kit as well, that are all outstanding. This is my dad, grandma and aunts back in 1949.

I spruced up this birdcage, first misting it with some Moon Shadow mists, then inking it with gold. I used a vine, butterfly, key and lock to finish it off (all from my stash).

I cut out a lot of these flowers from one of the patterned papers. The Petaloo flowers were from an older kit. The rub-on is also from my stash.


  1. Awesome heritage layout, Cheryl! I love, love, LOVE what you did with this kit! So beautiful!!!!!

  2. So beautiful! love the little details (the lock and key ~ fabulous) TFS

  3. I think this is soo beautiful! I like how you put the flowers along the vine! And the birdcage looks divine with the embellies. =)
