"Happy" Mixed Media Baby Layout and Process VIDEO TUTORIAL with Scraps of Elegance July Kit

Hi everyone, it's Tracey back with a new Mixed Media layout and process video tutorial featuring the gorgeous "Country Chic" Scraps of Elegance July Kit. Our darling granddaughter enjoys her tree swing by the lake as you can see by her captivating smile. This 49 & Market Cottage Life paper creates a perfect backdrop for this sweet photo.

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.

 Techniques I share include: creating a textured background; floral stamped hearts; grungy ribbon color; painted elements; and a stamped border.

Enjoy the video!
