Hello Fancy Pants Designs friends!
Jenny here with you all today showcasing a fun trend going on right now: CLOUDS!
The new What A Wonderful Day collection is so gorgeous and full of fabulous cloud accents and embellishments! I opted for 2 different ways of using the clouds, one way for my layout and the other on my card.
Lets start with the layout...
What A Wonderful Day Reminder Paper / What A Wonderful Day Strips / What A Wonderful Day Superb Paper / What A Wonderful Day This Way Paper / What A Wonderful Day Awe-Inspiring Paper / What A Wonderful Day Outstanding Paper / What A Wonderful Day Decorative Bags / What A Wonderful Day Flair / What A Wonderful Day Button Set / What A Wonderful Day Sticker Fundamentals / What A Wonderful Day Label Stickers / What A Wonderful Day Tape Stickers / Artist Edition Filter Paper Embellishments Pinking Edge / Artist Edition 3x3 Shape Stencils Set / Cork Label Stickers Circle / Park Bench Decorative Tags
For my layout I chose to use clouds as layering pieces, embellishments. I started my layout by deciding on a design. I cut my photo as a circle, as well as some patterned paper. I adhered them onto the background paper, alternating them with foam adhesive.
I then cut my clouds out using the cute cloud stencil from the Artist Edition 3x3 Shape Stencil Set. I used the What A Wonderful Day Outstanding Paper for my clouds.
Once I cleaned up the clouds (trimmed and erased my pencil lines), I picked different embellishments for each circle. I love the new Cork labels and shapes! They make such great layering pieces! I also used plenty of foam adhesive for depth and dimension.
To make the photo circle stand out a little bit more than the others, I matted it on a Filter Flower from the Artist Edition collection. I also used some of the alpha stickers from the Sticker Fundamentals sheet to add the location of where the photo was taken. I love adding alpha stickers to pictures!
For the card I decided to use paper and embellishments that already had cloud images on them. That gives you a more subtle look.
I thought the BFF flag Flair piece was a perfect fit onto the flag banner background! I added the Tape Sticker, sentiment and stitching and matted the background. After that I used foam adhesive for a little dimension and called it good! I love that I was able to use the strips paper without cutting all the strips out!
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my cloud inspired projects!
