I used the Vintage Summer Basics Collection from Maja Design:1912,1915,&1891
Here are some closeups of detail....
I did some distressed hand stitched layers & some stencil work using The Crafter Workshop Art is & Viva Modelling cream....
I stained all the chipboard with TH distress stain (tea dye & Vintage photo),then applied a coat of rock candy crackle.Once that dried I dried brushed on some white paint,& rubbed it in using my fingers. I used picket fence crackle on the feathers & chestnut liquid pearls on the dangling part of the dream catcher.

Now for the fun part,embellishing the dream catcher. I did some stencil work behind it,wrapped some prima wire thread around the circle part. I then finished embellishing it using,seed beads,beads,bottle cap,jump rings & flower clusters. I love both of the DA dream catchers,so much fun to work with....

Other products used,metal prima,metal heart with wings websters,flowers prima & petaloo.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look....Rachelle

    I have linked a card to your July sketch challenge, but I forgot to add my Country - Ontario, Canada. Thanks for a great sketch this month, I had a lot of fun with it.
