(This post is part of my Onwards and Upwards Blog Event)
We started the day with a sunrise, but we’re finishing off by drifting away on some dreamy clouds!
The World At My Feet:
This photo is one of my favourites from my childhood, because I remember the moment so well. I was going through a very day-dreamy phase – it was that age where you are still a child but starting to feel grown up, and I was realising what a big wide world was out there. It made me feel big and small at the same time – I could think of all the possibilities open to me, but also felt overwhelmed by them – how would I ever be able to choose what to do, and how to live my life?
I used lots of this lovely serene blue colour to enhance the mood. And then I added some glitter, because it makes it all look magical! I glittered the top of the clouds for a ‘silver lining’, and I altered some Thickers to spell ‘world’ by adding blue glitter to them:
It makes me want to go and sit on a hill or mountain and look at the clouds again!
Now for using clouds on a card…
Dreams Do Come True:
Everything on here (except the sentiment and the two blue gems) is from my Onwards and Upwards Counterfeit Kit. I’m going to give this card to my sister before she next goes travelling… assuming she hasn’t started to read my blog and seen it here first!
And while my Counterfeit Kit was out I decided to decorate this tag too:
The half-doily clouds (from My Mind’s Eye Lost and Found 2 – Rosy) are stamped with clear embossing ink and Seafoam White Ranger’s Embossing Powder. Then I doodled around them with a black pen, and added a couple of sequins. Clean and simple, but it will look pretty on a present!
Use some clouds on your next project – patterned paper, punched, stamped, or something new
Alter some alphas with glitter, or paint, or paper!
Make a clean and simple card or tag, it will make someone’s day
I hope these clouds make you feel dreamy! Do you like clouds or do they just make you think of rain? Does it depend on whether they are fluffy and white?!
