Altenew May 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s May 2019 Stencil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the new stencils.  If you arrived here from the talented Laurie Willison blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Let’s take a look at my wall calendar:

Illusion Spiral Stencil

Wow, I love this calendar page! I used the Illusion Spiral Stencil for this amazing effect. I was playing around with it and decided to try it on my wall calendar. I’m glad I did.

Decorating this wall calendar page was a breeze. Adhere the stencil where you want the image with purple tape and add color with a blending tool. Nothing to it.

My style is clean and simple so adding only two spirals that looks different allowed me to maintain that style.

To add texture, I add a couple of acetate die cut butterflies, green fields enamel dots and stamped a sentiment from the fancy greeting stamp set.

  3. Maybe I wouldn’t let my calendar pages get messy if I made them more beautiful to begin with! Lol! Love this!

  4. I just love how you used the stencil sort of two ways so it looks as if you have used two different stencils that are related. I also absolutely love your colour choice. ❤

  5. you always have such clever and creative ways to use Altenew’s products – love how you’ve decorated the calendar!

  6. What a clever “outside the box” idea. I’m sure you’ve just inspired many of us to try this ourselves!

  7. I love the way this stencil looks on the calendar. I make calendars every year and this stencil would make one month look easy. I make multiples and that would help.

  8. Very eye catching stencil! Love how you used it on your project. The butterfly is very pretty with the stencil!

  9. I always like seeing your new and different ways of using the Altenew products. I like that swirl stencil and you highlighted some new ways it can be used. thanks for sharing

  10. I love the effect of the Illusion Spiral Stencil on your calendar page and with the addition of the butterflies makes a boring calendar page spectacular. Great idea for those special occasions like a Wedding for a friend.

  13. Beautiful idea, I have a big desk blotter calendar and it’d be nice to decorate as I go along. The ink color on the illusion spiral stencil looks gorgeous.
