AECP Altenew level 2 project ..Ramadan decoration

Hello everyone,

I was super busy making this project.. it’s for altenew level 2 final challenge .. I enjoyed making all these project..and what I love more about this program (AECP) that it pushed me out of my comfortable zone and to creat a new things that I never thought I can do them. For level 2 final challenge our lovely AECP coordinator Virginia asked us to make a 3D home decoration


one month andramadan will come so soon , I usually make my decoration 2 days before it . In this year I am so thankful for altenew AECP for helping me to make all the work in advance.. this project I made for Altenew AECP level 2 challenge.

I didn’t finish all my items for this challenge but I really wanted to submit it in altenew best project in there 4th celebration.. although i am still working on one of these projects (a little technical issues ) and on making the videos, but I couldn’t resist submitting it..

on every project you will see that I used at least one f altenew product .

I made this candle decoration for the first project. It was the simplest and the easiest one to make it (between you and me it’s my favourite one-so simple and elegant ) .

⬆️ I used Altenew mosaic dome die cut over a gold glittered foam to creat this lovely die cut I glue it over a glitter led candle..


For my second project , I made this candle holder . I die cut the a dodec cover die over a gold foam and I glue it over a small glass cup.


For the wall I made the Islamic themed hanging, I used Altenew dodec star die cut over blue and green cardstock , and gold cardstock with the altenew mosaic dome die .

for my 4 th ones .. is the hanged or on table frame .. I love all the Eid, Ramadan altenew product..on the 1st one on the wall you will find that I combined both altenew stamp set, Eid al Adhaa, and Ramadan greeting into my cad with loose watercolor.. for the second one I used altenew layering stencile over a card stock and I used altenew simple shape circle stamp set to creat mooon changes that happen in this month.

For the 3rd one that I hanged on the tree branches I used Altenew Ramadan greeting and Eid al adhaa stamp set with powder watercolor and misting it. For the 4th and the last and the my favorite one is I used alcoholic ink over a glass of the frame I put a white card stock with n the middle and I used this lovely alphabetic sticker from Altenew card kit .⬇️🔻

I made some shakers and I left them over the table for fun..

I made some new items and some changes in the one that i had some technical difficulties..

Here is my new items..


My first project which is the one that I had the difficulties

The rotators lighted dome

I made this manual rotatory lighting dome display after I changed my plane from electrical to manual one if you are interesting to see my story you can click on this you tube link to see who I ended to creat this one..

Rotatary dome display for Ramadan

I used the magical spinner toy to make the display.


Second of them is this hand made electric light project shown the moon phases for this holy month . I used a simple electrical circuit with a light and switch ..I used mosaic dome die cut from altenew to cover this light .

Very simple and easy to make it took me a hour to creat I took time to figure out how to do my connection.

After I recorded the video I made a little changes I made it a one dome and I used some stencile on the paper to match the them of the other decoration..

For the matched card I made two card that I really love them so much .

My first card was created with altenew Ramadan greating stamp set over black card stock and I cut them . I used many distress oxide inks for the glossy background it’s really an amazing background if you are interesting to watch who I made it you can see it here in this link .
