Altenew March 2022 Folktales & StoriesCollection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

4 March 2022


Welcome to the Folktales & Stories Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Nichol Spohr's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Blog

In these anxious times I find it hard to create but I push myself to do it as it brings me peace and takes my mind of things. My favourite technique to keep my anxious mind busy is watercolouring. This is the layout I created with the some of the new products. I used the Rosy Blooms Stamp and Die Set. 

To create my background I used the Altenew Watercolour Pencils. I chose red, orange, green and yellow shades and made a stripy watercolour background. 

I stamped the images from the Rosy Blooms Stamp Set onto some watercolour cardstock. I cut them out before colouring them with the Watercolour Pencils. I used the same colours as for the background. 

I picked a black and white photo so that it would stand out between all the colourful elements. My title was created with a sentiment stamp. Some enamel dots in similar colours add the final details.
