Altenew Wildflower Paper Crafting Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hey everyone, I am super excited to be here as part of the new Wildflower Paper Crafting collection release blog hop for Altenew today. You may be visiting here today from the amazing Jenny Colacicco's blog but if you are not be sure to start at the start of the blog on the Altenew blog here.


Here is a glimpse of this gorgeous collection by Altenew.

Here is the layout I created as part of this hop:


This layout features my gorgeous girl and her cousin. They adore each other so much and I really wanted to document their relationship with this gorgeous collection. I printed the photo black and white as I wanted the photo to stand out amongst the colours and floral embellishements. 

The main feature of this layout is the fussy cut floral designs. These were cut from the one patterned paper in the collection. I left a small cream border around the fussy cut florals for added details. The photo was matted with one of the floral papers in a bottle green colour from a 6x6" paper pad. I embellished the top left of the photo with a small tab and floral pieces. 



The journaling on this layout was simply describing the love these two have for each other. Short and sweet but shares their story a little. I use my typewriter and cut it into strip form and adhere to my page with a liquid adhesive.

I adhered all of the fussy cut floral elements to my page using a thin foam adhesive. I love the slight shadow and dimension this brings to the page. 




To finish the layout I love to add small details and finishing touches. For this layout it came in the form of enamel dots from Altenew. I love the variety of colours and the sizes you get in these packs. They are always my finishing touches.
 

I hope this layout inspired you today using the new Wildflower Paper Crafting collection. Check out the info below for how to win some amazing prizes.
