Balloon Decor using MM Vintage Findings

Hi everyone!! Emily here, with a project I created with the Making Memories Vintage Findings collection. You can find this collection 25% off at HappyNScrappin' ! I have loved this collection since it came out, and was really happy to get the chance to play with it. If you know me, you know I love hot air balloons, so I had to create another canvas with some on it. The last canvas I created with hot air balloons was three dimensional, but not as much as this one is. I really wanted to go all out with this. 

I'm happy with how it turned out.... what do you think?? 

This is the canvas in full.... 

A balloon... 
The twine and ribbons that are attaching the baskets to the balloons are all from the MM Vintage Findings trims. 

The center, smaller balloon...  Do you see the white edges of the balloons? I used the Imaginisce D-Stress tool to distress the edges of each one before gluing them all together. 

The last balloon which is closer to the bottom of the canvas... 

As you can see, I used the MM papers to create the baskets... I also used some Bazzill to create the blue basket. I then outlined the top edge of each one with Liquid Pearl. 

The last photo below is it hanging in our hallway. I love it!!!
