'Dream sweet' by Anthea

Hi all.  I am absolutely thrilled to be here with the D-lish team for another term.  Thank you again Amanda for having me - I look forward to continuing to play with your gorgeous products and hope that I can inspire my fellow scrappers with my creations.
 
The page I am sharing today is a picture of my gorgeous daughter as a baby when she had fallen asleep on the floor.  Seriously.  The smile on her face has me convinced she was having some sweet, sweet dreams. 
 
 
I think this star and moon paper was a perfect background for my photo, but I wanted heaps of texture so I used some gold texture paste with a D-lish feather stencil and put them randomly over my page.  I also added used a Moroccan Fleur stencil to add to the back of my photo.  The feather stencil was part of a JAP kit, but there are other feather stencils in the shop to choose from along with many other designs. 
 
I then mounted my photo with a piece of black card stock and a grunged up piece of gauze and a gold foil doily
 
I then created my main cluster with a D-lish flower, a flying bird charm, some strips of washi tape from a past JAP kit and of course a gorgeous D-lish glass bottle that I have had in my stash for a while that I got from the DIY section of the shop.  I call it a bottle of the Sandman's dust :D.
 
 
 
I then place the main feature of the LO last - which incidentally was the basis for the LO to begin with. I adore that metal cabochon frame that I decorated with lots of little feathers.  I got the gold and white feathers from an old earring.  I simply took them off the earring, and after spray painting the frame the right colour, attached the feathers to the frame.  My idea was to make a little dream catcher.  I think it is kinda cute.  You can't see from the photo, but the feathers are not stuck down and jiggle about on the page. 
 
The chipboard letters are also from D-lish and I painted them (badly) with white paint.  I have had these letters for ages now and even though I use them heaps, they never seem to run out. 
 
 
 I then placed some creative cut feathers around the LO to add even more texture.
To finish it all off I added another (badly) painted wood veneer

 
Well, that is it for today. I hope you have enjoyed my post and that my LO has inspired you in some small way. 
 
I look forward to another great 6 months with the D-lish team and hope you look forward to seeing some of my creations. 
 
Till next time
Take care.
Anthea
