The other night I had a dream, which according to experts is not unusual. It something that everyone does, but usually once I wake up, if I a m lucky, I vaguely remember fragments of a dream but not much else. Remembering the outcome of a dream several hours later is unheard of for me, but that's what happened.
Before I show you the results of my dream, let me back-up a bit and give some background. I bought Tim's "Caged Bird" die when it was first available and sent some die cuts to a couple of ladies who live overseas. I did not send them all the "leftover" pieces (the pieces from between the bars of the cage). I used a variety of paper, including grungeboard and grungepaper. I had lots of them and I couldn't throw them away, I just knew I would use them "someday".
Then I had my dream. I didn't even remember the dream until after I was up for a bit and went into my studio. As soon as I sat down, it came back to me. . .well the end results came back to me at least. This is what I was compelled to create:
The first is a card front using the "leftovers" from the top cage as are the leaves, the stem is leftover from the bottom of the cage. I am not sure if is completed yet, time will tell. The second project is an ATC using leftovers from the bottom of the cage as a background. All the leftovers are grungeboard, except for the stem which is grungepaper. All the ink is Distress Ink, except for the stamp which is Archival Jet Black. The stamp is from the "Visual Artistry - Flights of Fancy" set. The spinners, washers, brads, jump rings and foliage are all from Tim's Idea-ology line. The clock face is leftover from a project we did on the cruise; I think it is Heidi Swapp. The gems and the heart lock are from my stash.
