TSG Aim For The Clouds Blog Hop!

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Hello! And welcome to the There She Goes Aim For The Clouds Blog Hop!!


Hasn't the eye candy along this hop been amazing?! If you'd like to play along on this hop, then head over to the TSG blog and start your hot air balloon ride there, but if you've come by my blog from the jaw-droppingly (if that isn't a word, it should be!) talented Maki, then you're on the right path and you're almost there!

Today, the trendsetters are sneak peeking this beautiful set called Aim For The Clouds. It's a 4"x6" set that's perfect for all those encouragement cards we need from time to time.

I used the main image from the set, one of the balloons and a large cloud for this card. The balloon is paper pieced and I watercolored the cloud (I used Going Gray in the shadow areas only), then I cut both of them out and popped them on dimensionals for some added dimension. I really love the black stitching on this whimsical paper, which just so happens to be called Daydreams!! This image is so bold and graphic that I wished I had copics to color it in instead of reinkers. I think they do it more justice than the wishy washy reinkers. Anywho, the layout is this week's TSG sketch #39, which was perfect for this set!

Your last stop along this hop is funny girl Wendy's blog! Run, don't walk, to see what she has created for you to drool over! :D
