Hello everyone. It’s Anna here with my first post in 2018. I can’t believe that it’s my fourth year here at Cocoa Vanilla already. New collection is on it’s way to me so I have one more project created with “Bohemian dream” for you. It’s a dream catcher that was created as a gift for my scrappy friend Flóra. We never met in real life but we love chatting on-line. She lives in Slovenia so we organized this little treat pack swap for Christmas and I added this dream catcher as a surprise for her.
I made similar dream catcher using “Wild and free” collection few months ago so I am basically scraplifting myself. I really enjoy making projects like that because you can go crazy with dimension.
I used embroidery hoop as my base. Background is painted with watercolors, so are some of the flowers I used in the composition. I am running low on my ephemera packs so painting similar flowers was a really good idea.
Paper composition under the picture of Flóra helped me to add dimension. I added two layers of cardboard between each paper layer. I needed my picture to be lifted above the hoop. After this part was done, I started adding flowers. I used a lot of 3D foam squares 🙂
Butterflies and flowers are always a perfect match so I added few. I love the chipboard stickers that are part of “Bohemian dream” collection and I used them in this project too. Title HAPPY is made of them.
I finished my composition by adding enamel dots from various collections. This is the kind of embellishment I run out first.
I hope you like my projects. I will be back to you in two weeks with some inspiration created with “More than words” collection. i can’t wait to cut it.
