A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes

This week at La-La Land Crafts our challenge was to use twine/string. I love using twine all the time so this wasn't too difficult for me at all!! I went for a very vintage layout this week with my twine being used as a frame around my image. I also went for a little bit of mixed media this week as well, adding some mists and modeling paste and I love how it turned out.

There are lots of layers going on in my layout this week and lots of La-La Land die cuts! In the photo above you can see my vintage girl has been given wings with the Wings Die Set. I love the texture that the Diamond Wire Die gives behind the photo and have added that in two places.  I added lots of gorgeous water lily flowers using the Water Lily Die and tucked in the Heart Key and Lock Die pieces into the cluster.

To add some more details to my flowers I have added the Cherry Blossom Branch Die cut into pieces and tucked in with the flowers. You can see the misting stamping and masking details I have added under the photo to add more texture. I finished off the layout with the gorgeous new sentiment stamp "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes" from the Beautiful Day Sentiments stamp set.

I would love to enter this layout into the Once Upon a Sketch challenge for May: Anything Goes. My layout title is "A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes", I have written some scrappy dreams and some regular life dreams on the back of this layout, little wishes to hope these dreams come true one day!

Here is the gorgeous sketch which I turned to vertical to work with here:

I have really enjoyed making this layout and hope you like it too! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
