I used one of Jana's cut files and enlarged it. The theme for this day was to supersize something, so I made the sun & cloud really big. I cut it on white cardstock and then used the beautiful Prima Watercolor Confections from the Color Kit to color it. Once it dried, I adhered some vellum behind the open sun. It adhered it to the background and then used some matching embroidery thread to hand stitch around the edges. I love how the sun's rays curl up off the page...such awesome dimension! I embellished with a lot of the exclusive floral die cuts, some of the Shimelle clear floral stickers from the Sticker Book, some Dear Lizzy Puffy Stickers, enamel dots & a fussy cut floral cluster from a Project Life card.
I love how the title turned out. I combined some of the exclusive blue alphas (LOVE that font!) with an exclusive wood veneer. I fussy cut "today" from a Project Life card. The colors were too perfect to pass up. You can see all the dimension and layering here behind my photo. I used a few Project Life cards and some floral die cuts under it as well as some tissue paper & adhesive foam.
I created another little cluster over to the left here using some Shimelle clear stickers, a flower die cut, a Crate Paper button, an exclusive puffy sticker, some tangled thread and a few enamel dots. I love the texture created from the stitching here...such a great detail without taking away from anything. To created this blue color on the cloud, I mixed some of the blue watercolor with some white acrylic paint.
Kim Watson & Kimberly Hutchinson did such a beautiful job with these exclusive flower die cuts. Even the leaves are fabulous! The clouds are also in that ephemera pack. I think I used them all on this one page :)
Here's one of the clouds. I love the gold metallic dots on it. I tucked it in here under the sun and then added some enamel dots. I also machine stitched through the white clouds.
I just had to fussy cut this flower cluster from a Project Life card. The colors were perfect, and I love how it looks layered under the photo.
Here's one more close-up to show the colors, texture and dimension.
I hope this inspires you. I had such a great time putting it together! Here's my process video if you'd like to check it out!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! See you soon :)
