Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Watercolor Brush Markers Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the brand new Watercolor Brush Markers.  If you arrived here from the talented Norine Borys 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!

Take a look at my watercolor scrapbook layout:

Watercolor Markers

I love the electric effect the watercolor created on this page. Super vibrant and fun. So was this trip to Universal Studios with my sister, daughter and nieces!

Here’s how this layout was created:

Gather Altenew Watercolor Markers and Altenew Large Watercolor Palette to get started.

Watercolor Markers

Before you can use the markers you have to remove the green ring that prevents the ink from reaching the brush before the are ready to be used.

Watercolor Markers

Squeeze the barrel to release the ink onto the palette.

Watercolor Markers

Use as many colors as you want.

Watercolor Markers

Spritz the palette with water so that the ink can move around when you apply it to paper.

Watercolor Markers

Turn the palette onto the paper and watch the ink move across the paper. Its amazing. I love this palette for this very reason. You can see how the ink moves and make adjustment if you want.

Watercolor Markers

Once you lift the palette, you will see some ink left on the palette that you can place somewhere else on the paper.

Watercolor Markers

Once the watercolor look is to your desire, let it dry. Since I wanted it to dry quickly, I used my heat tool to dry it.

Watercolor Markers

Now it time to add the photo and embellishments. Start with the title. I used the Reflection Scrapbook Puffy Stickers for this title.

 

Watercolor Markers

Type up the journaling and adhere it next to the photo. Use the Date Stamp to add the date multiple times. Splatter some black ink drops for contrast on the page.

Watercolor Markers

Add some thread and Reflection Scrapbook Collection Stickers under the photo.

Pretty cool right?!

Altenew September 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s September 2018 Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing all of the new Stamps and Dies.  If you arrived here from the talented Keeway Tsao 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!

Take a look at my holiday planner notebook:

Blessing Stamp Set

For this holiday planner notebook, I used Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection patterned paper, the new Altenew Blessing Stamp Set and the Festive Poinsettia Stamp Set.

Here’s how I created this notebook:

Place the chipboard on top of the pattern paper, use a number 15 Penblade to cut the patterned paper.

Once the front is done, do the same for the back cover.

Now use the We R Memory Keepers Cinch to put the book together.

Now, stamp each kraft pocket with a different sentiment.

To finish the notebook off, add some tabs so that you know which section of the notebook is which!

You can tuck all of your coupons and receipts into the pockets of the notebook. Everything in one place.

I kept this notebook clean and simple. It allows the recipient to decorate it they way they want.
