I started my layout, by dabbing the Ink Spray colors through the Sketched Lines Stencil onto White card stock. Once I finished all of the colors, I cut each of the shapes out and arranged them on a new piece of White card stock.
After all of the diamond shapes were adhered to my background, I machine stitched through each one. I wanted to add more texture to the background, so I also added hand stitching around some of the shapes. Then I used each of the Ink Sprays to splatter color around the coordinating diamond shapes from the stencil.
The embellishments and papers from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection coordinated perfectly with the Ink Spray colors. I clustered embellishments around my photo and I used the Bold Alphabet Die Set to create the title for my layout.
I hope you've been inspired by my layout, with some fun ideas for using the new Altenew Stencils and Ink Sprays! Don't forget to visit the Altenew Shop to check out all of the new products!
