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.
I 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.
I used NUVO jewel drops to the bows if the kite string. 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.
Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful week creating!
