"Endless Love" Mixed Media Layout with VIDEO TUTORIAL - Scraps of Elegance January Kit

The Blue Fern Studios Blush collection papers included in the January kit are simply gorgeous and oh so perfect for Valentines, weddings, or love themed projects. I've paired the January kit with love themed items from the Scraps of Darkness/Scraps of Elegance Store.

Our son and his lovely wife asked me to edit and print this sweet photo to send to the child they help support through a missions program. Their adoring smiles tell the story of the love they share.

 techniques shared in this video include:
- Creating a leather-look texture on cardstock
- Alcohol inked butterflies
- Inked stenciled bricks
- Splattered ink background
- Glittered Flowers with Prima Pearl Glass Glitter
