Hello, Altenew Fans.
Today I'll be sharing a sweet layout that I created for a photo that dates back 6 years. When I scrapbook I use whatever inspires me. Here, I picked out the Garden Silhouette Stamp and Die Set and paired it with the Mandala Die, and a sentiment from the Say Cheese Stamp Set.
Now you might think, why use pretty summery flowers with an autumn photo? Well, just because I like it. I know some people like to keep themes together but I focus more on the memory and my creative process. I just want to have fun.
I started by stamping the flowers with a very light color (I used the second generation stamp). Then I colored them using watercolors. This is such a fun and relaxing process and if you are scared of watercoloring, this is a great way to start.
To set off the photo, I cut out the Mandala shape with the Mandala Die and popped it beneath the photo. It adds depth and detail.
For the title, I used the Botanical You Stamp and Die Set.
Since I had some leftovers, I created a simple card. I mounted the YOU letters on some darker cardstock and then created a bouquet.
You can see how the layout came together in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.
If you don't have watercolors, you can also use your Altenew inks. They are great for watercoloring too!
Thank you for stopping by and happy scrapping.
