A Rainy Day | Altenew Scrapbook Collection Blog Hop + Giveaway

'When life throws you a rainy day, play in the puddles."
- A.A. Milne

Hey friends - I'm so excited to be part of the Altenew Scrapbook Collection* Blog Hop! This kit is incredible, I've been totally blown away by how gorgeous it is.
I have a quick flip through of the kit and the process video for my layout here:

I was inspired by all of the faux watercolour textures on the papers, and so I decided to create a rainy day scene!

I really didn't need to do much to the papers to create my scene because there's so much of that gorgeous watercolour pattern on them. I added some clear sequins for some extra sparkle to make it look like rain drops. I also used a white pen to draw a highlight on all of the water elements.

Of course I couldn't resist a bit of fussy-cutting; these florals framing my photo are completely stunning! And another one of my favourite embellishments from the kit are the chipboard pieces, the bike is my favourite, I really had to stop myself from hoarding it!

In case you're interested, I used this cut file for my paper piecing. I've had it on my wishlist for ages, so I was excited to finally use it. This kit was it's perfect match!

Now, onto the good stuff ;)
