Darren's Creative Studio - Tomorrow's Memories

I have had these snaps of Darren's little creative zone for a while, wanting to scrap them but just needing the right papers.  Tomorrow's Memories had the perfect papers just waiting for me, Prima's new Craftsman Collection!  As soon as I saw them I knew they'd be perfect.  

Teamed up with Dusty Attic's Cogs it all came together perfectly, love that!

The chipboard was lightly inked with Mix'd Media Inx, just Truffle and Patina - these inks are so easy to work with, they are so perfect for blending.  

I also inked the paper edges with the Truffle Ink to grunge it all up that little more.

I added some stitching in hemp twine, I wanted something rougher and man styled so I sewed it so the back of the stitches show, such a cool look for these grungier layouts.  

The only other embellishment it needed was a strip of Green Tara Coloured Jute ribbon {not all ribbons are girly} and it was done - simple and uncluttered, with that fabulous paper doing all the work!

Thanks for visiting, take care and
