Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Monday, May 21, 2018

Hello hello! Today I am participating in an Altenew Blog Hop featuring new products from their May release! Here is the layout I made with lots of floral stamping:

You can watch the process video to see how this layout was made from start-to-finish:

I began by making a whole bunch of flowers and leaves from the Fabulous Floral and the Bride-to-Be stamps & die sets. Once I got started, I couldn't stop! I also used Altenew Ink pads - I love the packs of four in monochromatic colors so I used the sets to make the flowers and mixed in just a few more Studio Calico inks for even more shading. 
Once I had all of the flowers and leaves made, I had to figure out what to do with them! :) I thought about making a frame around the edges of a smooth white cardstock background, but I didn't have enough flowers. So then I piled them on the top left and bottom right corners and spread out the smaller leaves to the edges. Fun! I took a picture with my phone to remember the gist of the placement and then took everything off to do some mixed media.

I used the Floral Drape Stencil to add modeling paste around the edges for another layer and texture. You can see these flowers peeking out from under the stamped flowers. Once the modeling paste dried I referred back to my phone and attached all of the flowers and leaves using foam squares for dimension.

Then I placed a picture of Jane on the bottom left corner, tucked into the leaves. I love how the blue of her denim dress echoes the blue stamped flowers. To create the title I die cut and stamped the "YOU" from the Botanical You sets using the same layering inks method as the flowers. The "make my heart happy" stamp is also from the Botanical You set which I tucked underneath to complete the title.
In the big open white space in the middle of the layout I splashed iridescent spray mist and splattered white acrylic paint. Once that dried I used a pencil first to draw journaling lines on the top right corner, didn't like it, so I erased the lines and tried again above the title - much better! I went over the journaling with a .03 black precision pen. And that's it! I worked on this layout sporadically over the course of 4 days and it probably took about 8 hours in total because of all the stamping. Worth it!

Here is the hop list so you can see TONS more inspiration:

  82. You were not kidding when you said you stamped out a bunch! I would have probably collapsed around flower 10. I love how when you got to the flower arranging you said "Now this is the fun part!" because that is the hardest (and very not-fun) part for me, so I appreciate you spending some time on that in the video. But wow, were all your efforts worth it. What a lovely layout and a precious memory for your little one. I like how you matched some of those sprigs to her shirt; it really brings the whole piece together. Thanks so much for sharing all your hard work with us!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Wow, what a standout! Love these sweet bright posies!
