Leave Space For Dreams

Hi and happy Sunday. It's time for my second piece for the Country View Crafts  circles challenge.


I'd recently come back from my holidays when I made this. I just looked at the challenge theme and though 'I got nothing'... And the more I thought, the more I couldn't come up with anything. So it was back to the very beginning. I chose my favourite bright Distress Inks and set about putting some colour down. Then I added a few different Dylusion stencils and spritzed with water to get a ghosting effect.

Time for some stamping now. I'd just received some of the new Visible Image releases, so I picked the circular ones and stamped away in the same colours as the background.
Time to jazz it up a bit, so out came the Tim Holtz Layering Stencils and Distress Crayons. I punched some circles from old book pages, got busy with the white pen, and added some sequins.
Just accented the sentiment from the same stamp plate and nearly done. The stamp around the edge was a freebie from Craft Stamper a little while ago.

I hope you like her, and will join me again tomorrow for the new challenge which is....

Have a great Sunday, and thanks very much for looking x
