Welcome to the Altenew "Enjoy the Ride" Blog Hop! "Enjoy the Ride" is a brand new scrapbook collection from Altenew with gorgeous florals, leaves, and artsy backgrounds!
I have TWO pages and videos to share with you today with this release. In my first video, I do a run through of all the products for you to see.
I decided to work with the dark green paper for my background and have the bright florals and leaves pop off the page. I decided to fussy cut these elements instead of using the die cuts because the die cuts have a white border on them, and I liked the look of just the colors on the dark background without the white.
Instead of using mixed media, which I often do, I opted to use the washi tape to get a mixed media look. I made an area to ground my photo, and also added a bit on the left to draw the eye across the page.
I just added some of the chipboard pieces and letters for my title, plus a few splatters of blue paint to pick up on the blue in the camera icon.
For my 2nd page, I also started with one of the "artsy" painted background papers, this time in a light blue.
I fussy cut MORE flowers and leaves from patterned paper, and this time used some inks and mists on my background.
I layered my flowers and leaves so that they flowed diagonally across the page.
And the chipboard icons were perfect for my photo about our long bike ride!
