Guest post and scrapbooking process video: Stephanie Bryan

I am taking this month off from making videos for my blog becuase I am making stuff for something else! So, I have a few guests that will be filling in for me with awesome projects and videos. First up is Stephanie Bryan. She is a fabulous scrapbooker and photographer and I am always in awe when I look at her beautiful creations. Here is her page and video:

Stephanie used these beautiful cut files by Kim Stewart.
Sometimes the most beautiful things really are the simplest.  Often, I find that I try to make myself stick to crazy creativity rules, like including patterned paper on a layout, even if I can't seem to make it work.  After I embossed Wilna's floral cut files, I loved the beauty and delicacy that they alone added to my page.  I was tempted to add in patterned paper, and as you watch my video, you will see that it took me a few different layers to create the look I was trying to achieve.  I wanted my background to be soft and muted, but not necessarily completely white.  I did a lot of pushing paper and embellishments around on my page originally, but finally settled on the perfect combo of watercolors and paint to enhance my background.  In the end, I just love how this page turned out.  I love that I threw all the "rules" out the window and just enjoyed the process of creating.  Thank you so much for joining me today as a guest here at I Heart Studio!!  I hope this page inspires you to create in whatever style YOU want to create!  Enjoy!
