When I started looking for a photo that will go well with the colours of the new Lily Daydream line, I found a photo of my son and daughter in law. The photo allowed for me to include teal as a contrast to the purple, I also love how the buff colours in Lily Daydream compliments the purple and teal.
My first step was to choose a background and I initially used the Sweet Dreams paper and cut the dream catcher from another page to double layer it over my page and create dimension. I wasn’t happy with the result and decided to make a little dream catcher from a circle chipboard, some crochet thread, beads and little wood veneer feathers that I covered in Starry Night Stickles.
I used the So Buff True Shot paper as my background, cut off a half inch on two sides and mounted it on the Fly Free paper. I stitched around the edges of the Buff background paper with embroidery floss.
I then worked on my photo stack. I cut the 3×4 block that says “Follow your Dreams” from the Living the Dream cut apart sheet. I mounted my photo and the journal block on foam squares and then backed it with Dainty Damask Purple Affair. I then layered Starry Night Intense Teal, Lily Daydream Dusty Script, Sassy Stars Intense Teal (stripes side) beneath it.
I made a banner from the Fly Free paper and added it in between the Sassy Stars Intense Teal (stripes) and the Lily Daydream Dusty Script. I cut another of the blocks from the Living the Dream cut apart sheet, punched it with a torn notebook border punch and layered it behind my photo stack.
I then first stuck down the half circle of the handmade dream catcher embellishment to see where my photo stack will sit.
I then stamped some messy splats onto my background and splattered some of the same ink on the two opposite edges of the page.
Once my photo stack and the main embellishment were in place I could go ahead and embellish the rest of the page.
