"You Are Special" Mixed Media Layout and Process VIDEO TUTORIAL with Scraps of Elegance June Kit

Welcome to my creative space.

Our little granddaughter just turned 6 months old, and I had a little photo shoot with her. This is one of the darling photos I took that day with her mommy standing behind me to get this precious smile! The Scraps of Elegance June "Birds of a Feather" was a dream to work with and the blue flowers and elements accent her big blue eyes so beautifully. I have a process video tutorial to share with you showing how I created this page.

Some of the techniques I share include:
  • Creating a mixed media background with Distress Oxide Ink along with visual texture using the 49 and Market Scripted Square Stamp
  • Chipboard with layered heat embossing
  • How to create your own DIY glitter medium
  • Coloring resin elements
  • Adding texture with prills and glass glitter.
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.
