Small Moments

I'm just sharing my second Scraps of Darkness layout for April and totally loving this kit!
The photo features my little boy being held by my sweet niece, who passed away a few years ago. She was such a joy. It has been hard to look at her photos, much less scrap them, but I'm trying to ease myself into it slowly because I definitely want her memory preserved. And what better way to do that than scrapping?

I used the pigment powder from the kit and some spray mist to create the hearts. I just cut some heart shapes out of plain, white cardstock. Then, I sprinkled on some pigment powder and dripped on some spray mist. I sprayed all that with water to give it this cool, watercolor effect.

I backed the hearts with some strips of the patterned paper, and tucked some of the flowers in. I love the dimension the flowers gave to the page!
Here's one last close up. I am so glad I have photos like these. This is what our memory keeping is really about. I'm so thankful that I captured this sweet moment with my camera all those years ago. My son has memories of her, but he doesn't remember this photo being taken. It makes my heart happy to know that I can show him the photo and tell him the story behind it.
