Dream-word art for Scraps of Elegance and Gina's Designs

hello there and Happy Monday! Yeah I know-a lot of people think those two words don't belong together ,but as long as you have a dream in your heart every day can have at least a little bit of "happy" in it! I created this piece to remind me of that on days when I need a little boost.

After painting the edges of the piece I covered each letter with patterned paper from the beautiful Prima Royal Menagerie collection from the October Scraps of Elegance kit "Tiffany's Style" then sanded the edges with Sandits before inking them. The base was also covered with coordinating paper.

The sand dollar from Gina's Beach Shape Set was covered with homemade texture paste (I spread it with my finger to keep it from going into the cutout parts-I love to get myself messy!) and the starfish was spread with sand paste made up of sand, white glue and acrylic paint.

I added tulle to the base behind the word to showcase the
 paper butterflies which were attached to  pearl sprays. The dragonfly and shells are Prima resin pieces which were drybrushed with acrylic paint; the shells were included in this month's SOE kit and the dragonfly was from a previous kit. Some ribbon roses and pearls completed the project.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hang onto your dreams; my wish for you is that all the very best ones come true!
