By the Sea Mixed Media Layout with VIDEO TUTORIAL ~ Scraps of Elegance August Kit

The gorgeous beach themed Scraps of Elegance August "By the Sea" Kit couldn't be more perfect for scrapbooking this sweet beach photo of our nephew. This page will be framed and sent to my husband's brother who is grandpa to this adorable young man. The surf and sea line up perfectly with the photo, and the coral embossing powder is a perfect accent to highlight his ginger hair. In this process video I show how to color the chipboard pieces, add glittery sparkle to the sea, and apply texture around the photo frame.

I hope you enjoy this process video tutorial:
