I love everything about kites. The way they look, the shapes, colors, I even love flying them. My dad taught me how to make kites when I was seven, and I've been hooked ever since. Which is why I love that my kids love kites too. So whenever the weather is good, and we have some free time, we head out to Venice beach, and fly kites.
While cutting, I was wishing for a Silhouette... Sigh. But anyway, they were pretty simple, and didn't take a lot of time. The shadows created by the cutouts is so different from layering the patterned paper on top. Love that.
I finished the layout with a few handstitched tails, a handstitched title, and printed journaling using one of the Index Journaling Cards. Pretty simple. I like simple!
