Hello everyone!
Today, I’m back with my second project for Daily ART and in fact, it’s my goodbye project…
I had a great time designing for Daily ART and I would like to thank our boss, Aleksandr Romanenkov, for giving us this opportunity and being so generous, by sending out the biggest DT packs I’ve ever seen!

Any time now, the new designers will hop in and give you even more inspiration and art ideas. I wish the best to all of the designers – old and new. Be inspired, be creative and good luck with your future plans!
Back to the project, still inspired by the boho theme we had for this month, I created an object that’s the first to come to our minds when we think of boho-gypsy style.

A Dream Catcher

I weaved my dream catcher by using two different sized hoops and some yarn. Then I gessoed the whole thing and glued it with Gel Medium Mat on a canvas that measured 30 x 40 cm. I applied Fine Texture Paste through a stencil, to create some texture on the canvas.

I created the feathers with air dry paper clay. I used a die and some very old scrapbooking paper from my stash, to create the butterfly, some of the flowers and the leaves. I painted them with Glossy Ink Sprays, to make them more vibrant.

For the canvas, I used Acrylic Paints and worked in layers, applying first the darker tones and then the lighter ones. This way I achieved some interesting shading and accented the texture of the feathers and the background.

Lastly, I embellished the dream catcher with trims of lace and fabric ribbons.

I hope you like it! Give it a try and have some fun with cheerful and bright colors!

Happy to be here the last six months.

Always create with your heart and don’t be afraid to experiment!

It’s not about being successful, it’s about being You!
