Heart Journal - week 20

This week's Heart Journal assignment is "Dreams": create a spread based on a dream, goal, or wish.  I have had some weird dreams lately, so I decided to go more broad.  I started searching ideas on the internet and then looked at images.  When I saw a dreamcatcher, I started looking at them specifically.  Some are so simple and others are really detailed.  So, I decided to use one in my design.
The base is mod podged tissue paper that is crinkled and then painted with a coat of Regency Blue acrylic paint.  Once set, I stamped the background with a script and sheet music (Stampabilities) in Pool Party ink.  Next is a Inkadinkado polka dot stamp in Brilliance Moonlight archival ink.  I inked the edges in Island Indigo ink, then stamped with words from Michael's dollar bin.  The dream catcher is sketched on vellum, then colored on the back with Sharpie markers.  I cut it out and ran it through a Xyron sticker maker.  I purposely placed it so one of the words showed through the vellum.  Last was a few words written by hand and a favorite quote from Twilight.  Thanks for looking!  April
