Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4 + Giveaway

by - April 05, 2020


Hello Altenew friends! Welcome to the final day of celebrations for the 6th anniversary of Altenew! I'm so thrilled to be a part of today's blog hop and can't wait for you to see all of the inspiration my fellow teammates and talented guests have for you today! Since this is day 4, you're most likely familiar with the details, so let's jump right into it, shall we?! First, I've got a brand new Lovely Layering with Ashlea video for you, explaining some of my favorite floral arranging tips when creating cards. That's always the toughest part for me, so I thought I'd share these tips with you! Check it out here:

I couldn't let an anniversary post go by without using Wallpaper Art, which seems to have skyrocketed to one of everyone's most favorite stamp sets when it was release last year. I'm not sure if it's the size of the flowers or the design and art itself that is so appealing, but there is just something about the set that keeps me coming back to color it many different ways.


Besides the stamp set, another obsession of mine is no line watercoloring. My technique isn't perfect, but that's the fun of creating. With each attempt and card I create, I learn something that I should or shouldn't do for next time. In fact, my mistakes are my best tool for learning in my opinion. I usually don't have to make the same mistake more than once or twice to remember that I should definitely not do that again.


Thank you so much for stopping by my stop on the 4th day of Altenew's 6th Anniversary Celebration Hop! I hope that you've gotten some inspiration and continue to hop along with us. Be sure to leave a comment on this post for your chance to win one of the incredible prizes listed above. I hope to see you back here again soon!
