It’s not always easy to keep a Dream in mind. By the way, it is not for me because I usually give it up or I have so many things in my head that I let it go.
I didn’t have something precise in mind when I started this spread in my Journal, just the Star hanging on a string. I just let my pen draw on the paper.
I don’t know where this hat is coming from, I find it soooo weird ! But I could not see my girl without it then.
This page was done instinctively. It was an inconscious way to test techniques, I painted, gratted, added some layers again & again…
It is hard to see but on the left corner, there is a Moon and three glittery stars.
For the stars, I used double-side tape that I punched with a star punch; I glued them on my page. Then, I pulled the sticky paper off and used a brush to cover them with Microfine glitters.
I made a kind of “dialogue with the picture” on the right page, using some masking tape to have my writing areas. Why triangles ? Absolutely no idea ! It came like that.
At the bottom of the page, I stamped and embossed with whitish Distress embossing powder (it was the first time I used this brand, the effect is… very powdery and particular); I heated it too much, that’s why it’s white under the stamp. For this writing page, I tried a crackle medium for the background (I painted the page with blue acrylic paint, let it dry, applied the crackle medium, let dry and painted with orange acrylic).
I really love this spread and wonder if I would not scan the picture in order to print it and put it on my wall, in front of my desk.
By doing this, it would remember me how close I am to my Dream.
