Hey there friends! I am so excited to be a part of the Altenew April 2019 Washi Tape/Embossing Paste Blog Hop! If you started the hop from the beginning then you would have come from Reiko Tsuchida’s Blog. If you’ve started here, WELCOME! You can still make your way around the entire hop by clicking on the blog link at the bottom of my post. [You’ll also find a complete list of hoppers at the bottom of my post.]
For my layout today, I started with a white cardstock base. I used the Sketched Lines Stencil and the new Altenew Embossing Paste diagonally down the center of the layout. I used a blue mist from my stash to add a little bit of color to the background to help the stencil lines pop. I waited for the embossing paste to be almost completely dry and then took a napkin to dab the color off the embossing paste. I love how this turned out!! It gave the embossing paste a bit more texture.
Now let me give you my honest opinion of the Altenew Embossing Paste…I’m a bit of a snob when it come to embossing/texture pastes. I like them to be lightweight and really opaque! I’m so happy with how this embossing paste worked! I will definitely be reaching for it again & again!!
I cut multiple rolled flowers from an older Cricut cartridge. I cut the flowers in different sizes on numerous patterned papers from the Altenew 6×6 Verdant Walk Paper Pack. I rolled the flowers and adhered them to their bases using hot glue, and then I adhered them to the layout following the same angle as the embossing paste.
After I had the flowers adhered, I put the Teal Shadow Washi Tape & the Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape on a scrap piece of white cardstock and fussy cut out the florals and leaf images. I then adhered those fussy cut images around the outside edges of the flowers.
After the washi tape flowers and leaves were added to the layout, I added my title using Black Alphas from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection. I added my photos to the upper right hand side of the layout and finished the layout with a few coral splatters.
