Authentic Beauty

So I made my cloud stencil and now comes the hard part of using it.  I used a piece of white cardstock and misted the clouds working from the center out and one extra one on the center top (I forgot to take a picture of the misted paper), then just a misting on top.

I didn't back my photo as I thought it could hold it own on this background and just started adding my embellishments to go with the layout.  Since the clouds were blue I die cut come blue butterflies and added a couple of blue bows to the layout. 

I pulled out an old postage stamp die and use the Valentine embossing folder that goes with it for my "Love" postage stamp.  I made the mini alphabet letters to go with this layout and printed on photo paper. 

I punched a small strip of pattern paper then layered it with a tag and bow to bring the  colors over to the side of the page.  The top has a couple of scraps from the die cut postage stamp layered with another tag and butterfly.

Hi Cindy didn't know how often you checked FB so I'm asking the same question here too.
Hey Cindy, Hope you're having a good weekend! I was invited by Elise at Feed Your Craft to participate in the blog hop that you may have seen going around on Mondays. It's an ongoing hop to allow each participant to share a little about them creatively and then invite 3 more bloggers to share. No need to join in, but I wanted to let you know you're one of my 3. If you have time/interest, my post is going live on Monday, the 11th and then yours would need to go the following Monday, August 18th. The questions that are being asked are: 1. What am I working on right now? 2. How long does it take to create a project? 3. What are my fave things I love to create with at the moment? 4. How does your writing/creating process work? 5. What inspires you? No pressure, this is purely if you want to. Best, Tina

Gorgeous layout. I think you made the right call as the photo can stand alone within the clouds. Great job with those, too. So inspired!
