Dusty Attic - You & Me Dreamcatcher


Dropping in today to share my dream catcher created for Dusty Attic. This month again I decided to create something off the page again and I love how it turned out. The centre of my dream catcher features my beautiful children, they are everything and more that I could dream of.

'You & Me'

I created a fussy cut cluster for the centre of the dream catcher topped with my photo and lots of cotton thread. I wanted the dream catcher to be neutral in colour and have bucket loads of texture.

All of the chipboard was given a light dusting of dark bark ink and for added interest I also gave the dream catcher a sprinkling of bronze micro beads.

At the base of all those layers it begins with a large abstract frame and then the layers begin. Lots of lovely layers to draw in the eye!

I water distressed all of the feathers to add dimension and make them a little more fluffy so to speak. These were also given a light dusting of ink.

Totally love those feathers!
