Practical Scrappers DT Post: Clouds

Hello my friends! Welcome to my second design team post for Practical Scrappers! This week we are playing with clouds on our projects! I love the look of clouds on layouts and was excited to play with this theme. Here is my layout:
I used an awesome sketch from Rochelle Spears for this layout and I had a lot of fun with it. In the sketch she showed a ring of stitching. I decided to try my hand at masking for mine. I cut a circular image from Accent Essentials (I thought it slightly resembled a sun and would work well with my summer-y layout), then I used the negative image as a mask with yellow smooch spray. The paper is from the My Mind's Eye collections. I am getting a lot of mileage out of these, lol! Now onto my clouds:
I used a chevron print patterned paper and then embossed the clouds with a swirl pattern.
I decided to try my hand at the new confetti trend to add a little emphasis around the clouds. I'm not sure if I was successful or not, ha! I used the 'leftovers' from my border punch.
Aren't these wood tile letters just the cutest?? I took these from the Echo Park This & That- Graceful pack, then added some Cricut cut letters from Songbird.
I cut a square of this notebook lined paper is from the Follow your Dreams line to make a journaling spot. I punched it with a notebook edge punch and then roughed it up a bit. There is my Smash date stamp again!! Thanks for stopping by today, and please stop by Practical Scrappers to join in on the fun!!
