August 2021 Inspiration Challenge: Making It Easy

by Lilith Eeckels

Hello, Altenew fans! It's Lilith, and I'm here with the August 2021 Inspiration Challenge. I hope you are all enjoying summer and soaking up a lot of sun. I have just returned from vacation and unfortunately, the lovely weather stayed behind. What better way to stay in the vacation mood than by crafting some fun bright colors. This picture was taken near our beside cabin. There were so many pretty flowers around and I couldn't resist taking pictures of them.

What I love about this combo is that you can modify it slightly. You can go darker, lighter, or even add more colors. I wanted to create something similar to the layout below which I created for the May 2021 Release but then I opted to go for a darker interpretation of the color combo.

I grabbed some patterned papers from the Wildflower Collection and added washi flowers which I cut out from the Floral Flurries Washi Tape.

The colors are very similar to the color combo but they are darker. When you are working with color combos don't be afraid to go darker or lighter. It will make it easier to craft and you'll have more possibilities.

Using washi tape for embellishments is so easy and the florals from the Floral Flurries Washi Tape match the die-cut embellishments from the Wildflower Collection. I love how easy it is to mix and match Altenew products. The Mega Love Die was still out on my desk and fit it perfectly so I used it.

Now it is your turn. Create something beautiful with this color combo.
