In the Clouds...

Hello, hello! It's Monday and that means we have a new challenge waiting for you at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.

The rain clouds might seem dreary to some, but I love the clean smell and lovely sound of rain. Of course a lone fluffy cloud on a sunny day, or the view of the world from an airplane window above the clouds are equally lovely! This week we challenge you to wander up in the air for your inspiration. Whether you are inspired to create a light and fluffy piece, use sky blue, create an art journal or quote about clouds, or any other interpretation of our challenge we invite you to go soaring among the clouds with us this week.

I was inspired by this fun set of Chevron Clouds from Simon Says...

 After cutting out several with my Sizzix, I got to work on my page design...
I really wanted to incorporate some of these lovely papers...

But, it just felt so clunky. Not quite the light an airy feeling I was going for...
 So, I layered the paper up under my photo instead and ended up with something like this...
 And with a little watercolor added, we have more the look I am after!
To finish things off, I simply dotted some embellishments around...
And there we have it!
It is so fun to play with clouds, no matter how you approach it! I can't wait to see your your take on this challenge!
