"The Journey" Layout - VIDEO TUTORIAL

I just completed my newest layout titled "The Journey" using the Scraps of Elegance main kit and elements add-on kit for September, 2016.

"The Journey" mixed media scrapbook layout with Scraps of Elegance kit

At the end of my blog, you will find my video tutorial (mostly in fast-forward), and the list of products I used.

Here is a preview of the Scraps of Elegance kits that I used:

Scraps of Elegance Timeless Main Kit September SOE
Scraps of Elegance "Timeless" Kit
Scraps of Elegance Timeless Element Kit September SOE
Scraps of Elegance Elements Add-On "Timeless" Kit
Since the BoBunny papers in this kit matched the color scheme of the Words and Paintery challenge board for September, I couldn't help myself but complete my layout before the deadline of October 15, 2016.  The Tim Holtz word band says, "The journey awakens the soul," and I loved how that fit in with the challenge theme.  Here is the challenge board:
