"fiNd youR wiNgs aNd fLy"

I have a confession to make - I'm obsessed. Obsessed with Rhonna's new Spring Circus line. I'm using it to decorate my creative space/the kids' play room. The colors are bright and festive for the kiddos - and I love them - and the designs are all the patterns I'm looking for: chevron, quatrefoil, & floral

Today I'm going to share my latest piece of artwork. It's a framed piece that hangs next to the dream catcher I made earlier last week. I have just a few more pieces to finish for the gallery wall and then I'll share the finished product - for now you get the individual pieces wink.

I printed 2 of the balloons from the Tattoo kit, fussy cut one and then cut the other into all of the individual sections. I gently rounded key pieces, wrapping them around an exacto knife, and layering them in place with foam adhesive.

For the background, I printed various images from the Tags kit and layered them all together - with some doily pieces thrown in for good measure. Then I printed and cut out the pennant banner from the Borders kit. 

The background is under the glass but I used 3 layers of foam adhesive to adhere the balloon on top of the glass. The pennant banner is glue dotted to the rim of the frame. 

I love how this piece turned out and how it works to bring all of the pieces around the room together. Tomorrow I'll be sharing some garlands I made using that same paper line and a carousel to match that holds Instax pictures of our girls.

Took a peek over at Rhonna's blog today. You have a stunning piece on your hands. I absolutely adore it and am very inspired by it all.
So glad she showed it off today!
