Hello friends, I’m joining the Altenew December blog hop today where we’re showcasing the newest set of Artist Marker colors (Set E), and a delightful assortment of paper crafting embellishments, such as enamel dots, wood veneer, acetate die cuts and chipboard stickers. There is also a set of 12 Artist markers – primary colors culled from the other existing marker sets. The Artist Marker Set E has four more greens (always a good thing!), a range of 4 new orange shades and a series of 4 tones of warm grey markers.
For today’s project, I used the embellishment bundle as an excuse to return to my original paper crafting love – scrapbooking! During this last year I discovered the charm of traveler’s notebooks and that has been the only little bit of memory keeping I’ve done since then.
I used one of my favorite photos taken of our grandson and his Papa at the Butterfly Wonderland in our city. They came to visit us in March and it was magical to watch him take in the 1000’s of fluttering wings and brightly colored butterflies!
On the right hand side of the spread, I used a blue/green watercolor patterned paper from the Reflection 6×6″ paper pad. This collection has so many beautiful watercolored designs, I can’t even! I machine stitched the photo to the patterned paper, and trimmed the side edge with my favorite washi tape design ever! The “love” word is part of this month’s release as is the enamel dots and heart. I love that there are SO many enamel dots and shapes in each color way package – I will have to work hard to run out!
I stamped a couple of the leaves from the Inked Rose and Inked Flora stamp sets, then colored them with the new green Artist Markers as well as some Ocean Waves Artist Marker. I used one of the beautiful watercolored acetate butterfly die cuts over top of the stamped and colored leaves, and the acetate March word plus some chipboard alphabet letters to create my title. I also included a small stamped and die cut black & white embellishment of a flower cluster – from the BAF-Poppy stamp set. Then a few ink splatters and this layout is finished. Another sweet memory in the memory bank!
