Go Fly a Kite!!!

We had a fabulous inspiration piece for this month! Don't you agree? I was most definitely inspired by the blue skies and the fluffy white clouds!

Here is my take...

...on this photo collage!

I just love the dimensional feel to the kites and the clouds!
I started by sketching out my design and then drawing out the clouds on the patterned paper. I cut the kites out of the patterned paper and folded them to create the creases. I then popped them up using double sided foam adhesive.
But what about those fluffy clouds you ask?!

To create the fluffy clouds I cut out 2 of the same shape for each cloud. I used my sewing machine to straight stitch around the edges leaving a small opening on one end. I then stuffed pillow stuffing inside the paper cloud pillow and then sewed that end closed. I adhere them with a small amount of hot glue from my hot glue gun! Supplies:
Patterned Paper: Lydia Collection Petit Floral Glitter, Lydia Collection Sky Brocade, Smoothie Shoppe Collection Ice Cubes



Happy Hugs!
