...do you want to hold the string?
That is what my Dad used to tell us all the time when were
curious children asking him where he was going when he left the house.
I wanted to journal this vivid childhood memory.
had what I needed to create a picture free 8 1/2" x 11" layout that
told the story of this childhood memory.
I hand cut the clouds and kites. The clouds were given a 3-D effect by
layering them with ScrapDots by Helmar. The tips of the kites are curled
up just a bit to give the effect of movement without adding height.
The yellow cord from "Blue Sky Day" was perfect for the kite strings.
The green grass was created by overlapping 8" x 1 1/2" strips of at slightly
different heights and them fringing them with my scissors.
While picture-free layouts are not my norm, I am quite happy with how this one tells my story.
