I loved the sun, clouds, and thin lines of rain so I found a photo of me on our last day at DisneyWorld when it started to storm just as we left the park for the last time. Terribly sad and the weather followed. I used thick watercolor paper for my background and cut the sun and clouds from watercolor paper as well so I could paint and not worry about too much warping.
I hand stitched rain lines with sparkly Kreinik threads. I stamped the little circle icons with white and tinsel gold heat embossing powder on vellum and punched them out with a pinking edge circle.
