Dreamer of dreams

Hello everyone, 

For my post today I have made an art journal page. 

I used a piece of pattern paper which I had lying around for ages. I just wanted something that was not too dark. 
First I'll show you what I did with the chipboard.

I decided to use my Verday paints and spray. I used copper in this case.

I painted on the copper paint using a normal paintbrush and dried it. 

I then added a second layer and while the paint was still wet I sprayed the oxidation spray on it.. 

Here you can see how it is starting to react. 

And here is what it looks like when the oxidation is complete. 

Here is a close up of the dreamer. 

and another one. 

I think he looks really fun with his crown ! 

And here is the finished project. I used model paste and a stencil, a die cut doily, Lindy's inksprays, a few rubber stamps and some sari ribbon. The dreamer is a Tim Holtz image which I cut out. 

I used the crown from this set. You will find it HERE. 

Thank you for stopping by today !
