Make Today Rock | Rachel Lowe

Hi all Rachel here again and today I have a layout featuring my daughter (again). Her holding balloons in the photo inspired me to use the Kite Trio cut file and I used the clouds from the Hot Air Balloon cut file that I used earlier in the month.

05236AD6-4771-4707-8D72-6C68A4AEAAF1I used Simple Stories Oh Happy Day collection.  I used two of the kites so I could have plenty of gorgeous clouds. I used the release the compound path function so I could drag out the centre of the clouds and then cut. Once I had done this added to the cloud outer with foam tape which creates a 3D effect. The larger cloud I paper backed by cutting by hand but using two different papers. The second smaller kite I added the four paper pieces with foam tape to add height. At this point, I added splatters of a light turquoise paint.3E0C84DE-22E2-42B8-9F47-76006572BC51

To finish off I added tiny flowers behind some of the clouds. I decided not to mat my photo but to ‘frame’ it with flowers, layering them behind my photo. I added my title using a banner die cut ‘make today rock’. I finished off adding a die cut tab with a tiny heart and last but not least a die cut bird.630A93E2-5418-4CBA-896D-487A2BD93E02
