Dream - Lady Pattern Lily Daydream - Stuck sketches

Have you seen Lady Pattern's  beautiful new Lily Daydream collection?  

 When I started looking for a photo that will go well with the colours of the new Lily Daydream line, I found a photo of my son and daughter in law. The photo allowed for me to include teal as a contrast to the purple, I also love how the buff colours in Lily Daydream compliments the purple and teal.  I used the latest Stuck sketch for this page:

Supply list:  Patterned paper:  Lady Pattern Papers; Wood veneer title:  Scrapbook Studio; Chipboard circle:  Celebr8;  chipboard arrows: Design Worx; Flowers:  Celebr8; Chipboard Hearts:  Pink Paislee; Enamel dots:  Nuvo Crystal Drops; Splatter stamps:  Prima; Embroidery Floss: DMC, Coats crochet thread; Beads:  Celebr8; Wood veneer feathers:  Studio Calico, Jillibean Soup;  Ink:  Distress Oxide (salty ocean); Stickels:  Starry Nights; Border Punch:  EK Success; Embossing powder: Lindy's (Byzantine bronze); Dandelion die:  Poppy stamps.

I used this sketch by Laura Whitaker for Stuck sketches:
My first step was to choose a background and I initially used the Sweet Dreams paper and cut the dream catcher from another page to double layer it over my page and create dimension. I wasn’t happy with the result and decided to make a little dream catcher from a circle chipboard, some crochet thread, beads and little wood veneer feathers that I covered in Starry Night Stickles.

This was the "what were you thinking" stage.  Truthfully making this embellishment took me the best part of 3 hours.
I turned out beautifully and I am glad that I was too stubborn to give up.

I prepared all my embellishments.  The chipboard arrows and the "Dream" wood title was heat embossed with a bronze embossing powder.  

I used the So Buff True Shot paper as my background, cut off a half inch on two sides and mounted it on the Fly Free paper. I stitched around the edges of the Buff background paper with embroidery floss.  

I then worked on my photo stack. I cut the 3×4 block that says “Follow your Dreams” from the Living the Dream cut apart sheet. I mounted my photo and the journal block on foam squares and then backed it with Dainty Damask Purple Affair. I then layered Starry Night Intense Teal, Lily Daydream Dusty Script, Sassy Stars Intense Teal (stripes side) beneath it.
I made a banner from the Fly Free paper and added it in between the Sassy Stars Intense Teal (stripes) and the Lily Daydream Dusty Script. I cut another of the blocks from the Living the Dream cut apart sheet, punched it with a torn notebook border punch and layered it behind my photo stack.

I then first stuck down the half circle of the handmade dream catcher embellishment to see where my photo stack will sit.
I then stamped some messy splats onto my background and splattered some of the same ink on the two opposite edges of the page.

I love the way this all turned out.  I made two little flower clusters to border both sides of the photo stack.

A closer look of the bottom flower stack.  I pasted the cut off part of the circle at the bottom to become part of the bottom cluster.  I made my enamel dots using Nuvo Crystal drops.

Here you can see the dimension of the page.  I am loving this colour combination and cannot wait to experiment with mixing this purple collection with some of the other Lady Pattern paper colours.
