Trending: Clouds

Trending: Clouds
For a while now I've been seeing lots of clouds around. I think they are a great design element. They always seem to bring a restful, dreamy feel to wherever they're placed. I kept wanting to incorporate some clouds into my designs, and the arrival of spring brought the impetus to get me started. I'd still like to do some papers based on cloud photos, and who knows what other inspiration will strike, but Pixel Scrapper is off to a good start if you're looking for clouds.

If you're looking to use clouds in your layouts, here are a few spectacular layouts to get your started.

Try using clouds in your own designs.

Clouds bring the same restful feel to home design as well.

If Pixel Scrapper doesn't have enough clouds for you, here are some great digi scrapping resources I've found. And also I have a Pinterest board just for clouds.

Do you love clouds too? Or was that too much cloud for you? What other trends have you been noticing?

Being from Washington State, USA you would think we see ENOUGH clouds, but oh... contraire. lol I love a cloudy day that breaks into a sunny day. My idea of perfect weather is 72 and slightly overcast... thus the clouds. lol

I hadn't noticed the trend. I do love the hand drawn Umbrella kit to go with all those clouds.

I adore the clouds topic. Unfortunately - or well fortunately - we do not have a lot of clouds here in the South of Spain. Mostly blue skies and lots of sunshine.

I am so behind on trends! I did not realize how hot clouds were these days. I love to look at them in the sky and I am always intrigued by there changing shapes. I never thought to incorporate clouds into my pages. Another new thing to try. Thanks for putting thoughts into my head.

I love this cloud trend and I some some goodies I need to get (that sleepy clouds t-shirt is adorable!). I have seen some trends pass by, but most of them seem to be over with already: ink drips and the grey and yellow color scheme. Thanks for the inspiration!
