"Precious Moments" Mixed Media Layout and Process VIDEO TUTORIAL with the April Scraps of Elegance Kit

Welcome to my creative space!

Today I'm sharing another project and process video tutorial from the gorgeous April Scraps of Elegance "A Song Of Spring" Kit. I took this sweet photo of our little granddaughter's feet when she was a week old. I did a little Photoshop work by converting the photo to black and white emphasizing these darling feet by leaving them in color. The gorgeous paper and elements in this kit couldn't be more perfect to create a shabby mixed media layout for this precious photo. 

I just adore including handcrafted touches on my projects, so used the leaf image from the 49 and Market Gabi's Texture Stamp Set from the Scraps of Darkenss Store along with the Sage Spectrum Noir Sparkle Marker from the Creativity Add On to create watercolor leaves to tuck into my flower cluster. All the details are in the video.

FTC Disclosure: I am currently working as a freelance designer for Scraps of Elegance. While I am compensated in product, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of these products and will not recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.

In this process video tutorial learn how to:
 ~ Create handcrafted watercolor leaves
~ Prepare your background paper for mixed media with clear gesso
~ Create texture with stencils and modeling paste
~ Add texture to acrylic layered flowers with Prills
~ Add texture with glitter shards and Prills
