Dusty Attic - Mini Dream Catcher


Quick post today playing catch up to share a little dreamcatcher I created for Dusty Attics August moodboard. I loved everything about this mood board but I was particularly drawn to the gorgeous dreamcatchers on it, so I decided to create my own.

'Wild & Free'

This little dreamcatcher was super easy to create. The base was the Dusty Dream Catcher #1, I cut out the chipboard threading and replaced with my own out of natural thin jute twine.

I like the soft texture the natural jute twine created. For some extra embellishing I added the 2 smaller Laurel Sprigs from the Dusty Laurel Sprigs chippy sheet. They fitted perfectly because they were already that slightly rounded shape, I then added the smaller deer head and antlers to the top. To add even more embellishing I then added a few gorgeous Prima flowers to add a splash of soft pastel colour.

For the title of the dream catcher I used some of the new Dusty Mini Tabs and Decorative Dots. I left these the natural colour of the chipboard. For added interest I then layered the 2 Heart Buttons from the My Heart Smiles With You title set.

To the bottom piece of the dream catcher I added a few extra Dusty chippy pieces as well. I added a small cog, 2 small feathers to the feathers that were already there and 2 small leafy pieces from the Boho Skull chippy sheet. To add softness I then added some contrasting cotton threads and wool pieces.
