This stencil release features a variety of designs and styles, perfect for any project. The layout I’m sharing today was created using the Flowing Drops Stencil.

When I saw this beautiful stencil, I knew I had just the right photo to go with it. I started by blending the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks over the stencil to create a diagonal design: Minty Mint, Sweet Leaf, Aqualicious, and Teal Cave. Those colors just give me the idea of water and summer.

Here I picked colored thread that matched the inks, and stitched almost all of the drops, except the outer ones, as I really like how they fade into the background.

For the photo, I layered a few patterned papers from the Our Family and Reflection Scrapbook Collections behind it and popped it up with foam adhesive. To add to the layering, I arranged die cuts from the Rose Filament Die Set around it, as well as a flower cluster sticker from the Our Family collection. I also fussy cut some roses from patterned paper and scattered them along the diagonal design to make the page more cohesive.

To finish the layout off, I embellished it with wood veneer buttons and additional stickers, enamel dots and paint splatters from the same inks I used for the stenciled images.Now onto the prizes!

  1. Ciao Enza, ho visto la foto di questo bellissimo LO su instagram e sono corsa a leggere come avevi cucito le “gocce” dello stencil. Visto che non ho la macchina da cucire proverò anch’io a farle a mano. Adoro il mix di materiali su questi progetti.
    Un abbraccio
