Hello friends,
I can’t tell you how thrilled and grateful I am to be the featured Guest Designer on the Altenew Card Blog and YouTube channel this month! I use Altenew products a lot as I absolutely love them so being their guest makes my heart happy.  Please head on over to the Altenew Card Blog for the featured post and video and leave me some love there! 🙂

Video

My video is up on the Altenew’s YouTube channel. You can watch it here or in HD on YouTube.


This is my first video with a voice-over..Please support me on this 🙂

All the details are over on Altenew Card Blog, but I’ll share project photos here too.

I had the pleasure of using the Foliage Fiesta Creativity Kit for my guest design feature. I felt in love with this kit because of the gorgeous stamp set and die sets, and Watercolor brush markers – Tropical Fieasta Set. These colors are amazing!
My goal was to use the supplies that are in the kit exclusively so that you could see how truly versatile this kit is.

Hope Card – Watercolor Negative Painting Technique

My last card features watercolor negative painting technique. Negative painting is the act of painting around a subject and allowing the unpainted space to give it its form. It allows you to make vibrant and attractive backgrounds. Combining this technique and stencils you already have opens the door to many new looks!

All 4 cards are gorgeous Alex! You never cease to amaze me with your watercoloring not to mention how relaxing it is to watching you do so. I loved the video and you did a fabulous job with the voice over, but I already knew you would 🤗.

The Stay Awesome card is just incredible!! I love the way you combined such different colors, and how you left tiny bits of white on the flowers. You are amazing. Seriously amazing!
