Hat of Dreams

Good evening bloggers. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
I have had a lovely afternoon outside, snipping decoupage for today's project. The CD Sunday Challenge have the theme of Dreams and Dragons and Simply Create Too #42 want anything but a card so this is my effort......a wall hanging!!

I used a beautiful image from Joanna Sheen's Josephine Wall Project Book/CD. I had to get the old thinking cap on for the frame. My largest Spellbinders Timeless Rectangles was too small so I cut two, laid them on top of one another horizontally with an overlap, then cut through both with a craft knife, discarded the slithers of waste and spliced the two pieces together. I wrapped ribbon to hide the join but you wouldn't know it was there. The  matt copper board was a little too bright so I toned it down with Tim Holtz alcohol inks Slate, Currant and Lettuce. It also echoes the mottled background on the image.

This shows the layers of decoupage

The title of the image is Hat of Dreams....
...she has a vivid imagination, for sure!!

Thanks for visiting and go on get the old CD's out,
 I'd forgotten how good a resource they are!!

See you soon xx

Oh my word...that's incredible! I don't think I've ever looked a hat longer in my life. It's gorgeous what you've created here in decoupage and I love how you chose to frame and showcase it. Love all the details and the layering Sarah :)
Thank you so much also for the very sweet comment you left me.
