Here are some close ups....

For the paper layers I did some ripping, distressed the edges & hand stitching..
I painted the ripped edges with oyster-H20...

I primed all of the chipboard with clear gesso, then painted some of the pieces with clear crackle, once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with oyster silk, & rubbed in brown chalk...

I also did some stencil work....

For the frame I used some chipboard waste pieces & glued the crazy stitching onto it. For the flower clusters I used Prima Roses, Rosette Trim, Little Birdie mini roses, Pearls & Prills...

I strung beads onto wire to dangle off of the dream catcher & Indian Arrow...I also glued on some crystals....

I also glued cheesecloth under the dream catcher, applied liquid pearls & made another flower cluster... Here are a few more close ups...

(Look at that sweet sweet face )
