Beautiful Day Layout

Hello and Welcome!

While looking at colleges for Aaron in Madison, Wisconsin, we stumbled on this amazing park called Olbrick Botanical Gardens. It is full of beautiful little pockets to explore. We spent hours and had so much fun. Here is a layout I created about that day:

This layout was created with Altenew's "Charmed" stamp set. I love how easy and beautiful everything turned out. The flower stamp was stamped several times vertically, then colored with watercolor brush markers. The watercolors blend effortlessly on Bristol paper.

The flowers in the lower right corner of the photo were stamped, colored, fussy cut and popped up over the picture.

The title and quote are also from Altenew's Charmed set. I stamped and heat embossed them. I think they perfectly describe our day. This page is based on a sketch by Altenew.
