TGF Heart Journal--week 7

Hi!  It's week 7 of TGF's Heart Journaling.  I'm almost late with this one since I was doing my countdown calendar, and I didn't have much time over the weekend to work on my layout.  My daughter did hers early but I just finished mine last night.  The concept for this week is to use clouds and the tip to use materials we can find around our home. 

My daughter's layout.  She always makes bright colored layouts.  She used the piggy from TGF's Fly Away set and the butterflies from PTI's Butterfly Dreams.  She painted the background with watercolors and used metallic pencils for the images.

My layout.  Kept it kind of simple this week.  I sponged my blue ink pad over the page for the background.  I used chipboard that I taped with washi tape and then die cut the clouds out using PTI's clouds dies.  I cut some clouds from doilies too and lay them over the washi tape ones.  I made a mistake on one of the clouds in my rush to finish.  I stamped the hot air balloon from the same set my daughter used and colored with metallic pencils also.  Not sure I love this one.  Definitely need to set aside more time to complete the layouts.

Thanks for reading!

Congrats! I'm so out of it this week, I don't even know what's going on in blog world. I was trying to comment yesterday morning on here, but internet explorer seems to mess up blogger, like it won't let you log on. Now I'm on Google chrome and it seems to work better. Anyhow, cute clouds! I like H's bright blue sky! Neat metallic pencil coloring! You mean the one lone lacey cloud facing the other way? I actually didn't notice it at first, now I can't stop looking at it! But so cute! Like the washi tape clouds.
