Hi everyone! Tessa here with a fun trend - HOT AIR BALLOONS!
One of my fondest childhood memories is of a local hot air balloon festival. As the sun rose, my family and I would watch the empty balloons stretch across a field, then fill with hot air. They took on their round shape and stretched toward the early morning sky as they got taller and stood upright from their baskets. The colors and designs were glorious!
Then, we would watch them lift up and float away - hundreds, it seemed like, filling the sky.
Needless to say, I was so excited to see the hot air balloons make an appearance in the new What a Wonderful Day line. With a title inspired by those hot air balloons, I made a layout about the people who lift me up most - my sisters.
I loved the pre-printed diagonal of balloons, so I kept the rest of my design simple. To embellish the page, I die-cut clouds from the white corrugate paper. I love the texture the corrugated clouds add, especially lifted with dimensional adhesive.
While my scraps were on my table, I decided to make a card featuring a hot air balloon. I used my Silhouette Cameo to paper-piece a colorful, happy balloon.
To make it feel like the balloon was floating, I used more dimensional adhesive to lift it off the card.
If your spirits need a lift, try paper crafting with the trendy hot air balloon. I guarantee happiness will result!
