Hi there, it's me Julia Saddi : ) and today I come to share with you girls few clouds of my very own style. Hope you all like and try them out. If you have any doubts while making clouds like the ones I am going to show you today, feel free to get in contact with me:  And, if you have great ways of making different clouds, all by yourself, on your very own style, please share with us just leaving the exact blog post address under your comment on this post, we'd appreciate it!

- Upsy Daisy Vogue Collection
- 2 White Cardstocks
- 1 Riptide Blue Glimmer Mist or similar
- White Fabric Puff ink
- 1 Post-it full adhesive Craft Paper size A4
- Sun: either a die-cut or an embellie made by yourself
- Whatercolour tubes
- Fine brush
- Small Yellow Alphabet
- Precision Scissors
- Blue Bottons
- Ribbons
- Color markers

1. Masks' Negative Technique:
First of all, you should either draw or find a cloud set pattern you may like to work with.  Here I used an old cloud set pattern I keep on my patterns' box.  I drew them on a Post-it full adhesive Craft Paper size A4, cut them out with a small precison scissors, then peeled the non-sticking paper on the back of them. Next, I glued the clouds on the top of a white cardstock, 'cause they should work as a mask negative on my project. First two photos:

After arranging the clouds on the white cardstock, I srayed riptide blue glimmer mist around all the area where I chose to be the sky on my Layout. You can take the excess ink, if you want, by gently  tapping a clean white napkin onto it. After the glimmer mist has dried, you can remove the clouds' masks.  The result will be like shown on the following photos: 

Bellow you can see the whole Project in which I used these Clouds' Masks Negative:

2. Glimmer Mist Sray: I copied the clouds' patterns on the top of an UDD paper that I LOVE 'Vogue Fashionista' , sprayed glimmer mist on the top of them, waited for them to dry, cut them out and used on a Card Project, like shown belllow:

3. White Fabric Puff Ink applied to Scrap and Card Making:  at this time I pulled out of my patterns' box a huge cloud, drew it on a cardboard, cut it out, glued UDD New Paper #AVA014 Powder onto it, then cut off all the excess paper.  To soften the blue and give a certain touch of reality into the big cloud, I painted the top of it using white watercolour tube, fine brush and white napking to suck/drie the excess water. Right after this, I circled the outer cloud with White Fabric Puff Ink and dried the puff ink with an emboss heat gun. Kept it aside. I drew a small cloud on a scrap of  Fashionista paper, did not use any watercolor, but also used puff ink - same process. Then I fixed the smaller cloud with foam tape over the bigger cloud. Glued ribbons on the button of the big cloud, glued blue doodlebug buttons and a die-cut sun. Chose a simple title for all occasions: Hi! and attached a thin waxed ribbon to it. Voilá! Last photos:

At the back of the card, I made some doodles at the border
and lines to be written on.

If you like it, please leave a comment! : ) 

1 Huge Hug to each one of you, Love, Julia Sáddi
