Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week's challenge you are encouraged to wander up in the air for your inspiration.
I was inspired to create a cloud like background on my layout:
I scrapped a photo that was taken while hiking the Swiss Alps. For a backdrop, I attempted to create a fluffy cloud like appearance using Texture Paste:
For a splash of color, Stormy Sky and Brushed Pewter Distress Stain Sprays were randomly added:
Chit Chat stickers were used to spell out my journaling:


I embellished with home made flowers including a Tattered Floral along with a Mini Clock:

An Enameled Tag with a Botanical Remnant Rub makes for a great embellishment:
Here's a photo of a few of the products I used:
Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with theSimon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
