"This Moment" Mixed Media Layout with VIDEO TUTORIAL ~ Scraps of Elegance February Kit

When I saw the gorgeous "Garden Gala" February Kit, I knew it would be a perfect backdrop for a favorite photo of our daughter, Elizabeth, and her husband, Andrew. Well, they weren't married quite yet when this engagement shoot photo was taken. The dreamy Blue Fern Studios Serendipity Collection perfectly fits the mood and colors of this fairytale photo.

I've used the Blue Fern Studios March Sketch for Inspiration.
Please scroll down to view the sketch and a list of gorgeous
Blue Fern Studios products used on this layout.

Techniques shared in this video include:
~ Heat embossing chipboard with multiple colors.
 ~ How to color molding paste with Gelatos and ink.
~ Adding visual texture with stamping, mist, and ink.
~ How to color metal and resin elements with mist.
