For the love of rainbows -and black and white photos-! I am sure many of you share my love for a number of colors in an arch. Well, as soon as the new FAIRY GARDEN collection arrived, I was totally in love with the colors and all the rainbow patterns ( plus the fairies, bugs, and everything nice that dreams are made of!!). So, I quickly formed the idea on my head and pulled scissors, glue, and embroidery floss to create a page all about my Goddaughters (aka my littlest cousins!)

Happy Birthday ALTENEW!!! For the past 7 years they have been producing high quality products for all sorts of paper crafting. My journey with Altenew has been nothing short of one of the best creative adventures. So, for today's post, I decided to create a page that started with just cardstock...
Let me tell you, nothing more satisfying that create a memory from scratch! It all started with a piece of 9x12 Altenew Watercolor Paper. I used Lagoon and Sea Breeze Watercolor Brush Markers refills to paint the entire sheet of paper, thus creating the ombre effect.
I trimmed about 2 inches of the colored paper to create my title using the Caps Bold Alphabet Die set. At the same time, added a bit of Embossing Paste through the Feeling Dotty Stencil - using the Ink Blending Tool very softly- to the top and bottom edges of the cardstock.
While the paste dried, I used a mix of Gradient Cardstocks and regular cardstock to cut all the flowers for the page using the Jumbo Gardening Picks Layering Die Set. I went with bright colors that will contrast and complement the background.
