In my dreams...

sponsored by 

OMG  have been sitting on this post for ages!!!
Beccy sent the images through in plenty of time
 and I couldn't wait to play!!!
I started by creating a "Fantasy" background.
I got these acrylic paint spritzers for just £5 and they are fabulous!
I wet a piece of watercolour paper...
and spritzed...
After the squeeeeing subsided I gathered some
co-ordinating papers.
I wanted to make the background more detailed so
I over stamped using foliage from Stamps by Me.
 I just did simple matting with holographic card and 
matt green card which made the background feel more
dimensional .

Now to add the image!!!!!
I am sooooooooo in lurve wth
Neville from Beccy's
I cut him up to decoupage with,
and used my Cameleon Pens for the first time
*had them ages but hadn't tried them.
 Totally different to using Promarkers*
Simply mounted onto the background he looks so at home lol.
I just added a sentiment which reads
"appreciate the little things in life"
He certainly makes me smile :D

Enjoy :D XXX
