4 Comments

There are wonderful swaps over at  paperwhimsy.
The latest is “Flights o Fantasy” and I signed up for the Jewel Tones Regal Theme.

The balloons were made using a template provided by Gale at paperwhimsy. I painted watercolor sheets using inks and cut out and collaged other paper onto the painted sheets, sewing and glueing them togerher.  The ‘angel’ was made by bringing a whimsy girl and a weird bird into Photoshop and the Jewel Tone colors were applied. For the wings I used a rainbow gradient.  I cut out the balloons and added the angel, the jewels, some ribbons and glitter.  Up Up and Away!

One of these will make it’s way to Sherry Bissell and another to Sandy Scholz. I will receive one from each of them and we will each have 3 balloons for a whimsical banner.
