Dream wall hanging

I have not been a very busy bee lately.  To say the least.  I have been plagued with migraines pretty mcuh for the entire month.  Can you say frustrated~~~ ahhhhhh!! Ya to say the least,  frustrated.  when I am in other pain I can still find it in me to create something.  When I have a migraine I can only find my bed and curl up in fetal position and pray it goes away.  I certainly am not productive in a pain brain situation......... well I finally had a bit of relief yesterday and created a wall hanging for a pal in Australia.  I have sent it off and pray it gets there before Christmas gets here~~   I could not believe the cost of shipping a package via air mail.....Canada post wanted about $65.00 to send my package airmail.  Am I cheap to send it for upwards of $ 26 for the surface mail???? I don't think so and if I wanted it to be even faster it would have cost $95!!!! Well shipping things has become quite an expensive proposition however it IS going to be shipped.  It will take a wee bit longer to get there but it WILL make it there. 

So here is my magical wall hanging.   I had a lot of fun with of all things.... box board...aka cardboard. Love doing the recycling thing.  It makes for a great base to create on.  I added some paint and some more paint and then did a collage thing to bring it to life.  I used some of my new Goosebumps with shimmer Texture Spray by Tsukineko.  Love it.  A nice sparkle in the shine of the spray adds a little more bang for your buck! I used a Unity stamp for the flower under Dream and added some flowers from prima and some I coloured which I got from wild orchid crafts.  I made the pink and blue flowers myself from coffee filters I sprayed with some glimmer mists then cut out using Tim Holtz Sizzix die tattered florals.  Love that die! 

A labour of love.  I had a great time doing this.  I lost all track of time and was inspired constantly.  I love it when I work on a project and it flows out of me.  I know when I don't think and plan I tend to do better work.  It comes out as intended.  Too much thought about my art and I don't mix well!! I just let it flow out of me if I can!

Thanks for looking and taking the time to come to my wee blog.  I am very thankful you have taken the time to stop by and to look at my art and share in my passion.

I have finally finished my project that I began at the Canadian Scrapbookers Carnival in Christy Riopel's class.  I will post it soon.  Also have some a Halloween cards I made for my nieces and nephew but I am not going to post them until I know they have them in their hot little hands......I sent them a wee bit late and it does take time when mailing from one side of Canada to the other!

Take care all.  Happy Thursday!!!
