Dream a Dream


Alison's second project over on this weeks PA blog was all about tags and a canvas which you can see here.  As I didn't have a square canvas I used a piece of 8 x 8 mdf instead.  I coloured it with mocha mousse fresco, added some TH tissue wrap and put grunge paste through the ledger stencil.


I stamped various images with saddle brown and pumpkin stazon onto tissue paper and covered some wooden buttons.


I stamped the feathers and main image onto cream ribbed card.  I painted the background in a wash of nougat fresco and edged with mocha mousse which I also used on the tags and main image to bring it all together.  Added the buttons, tags, piece of die cut lace and the word dream.

Fabulous take on Alison's canvas Sam but as always with your own interpretation. Those buttons turned out perfectly! Oooh, I do love these colours.
