Dream








When my husband asked me to make something cool to decorate his classroom, I decided this banner would be a great inspiration piece - DREAM. It's really very sparkly in person - lots of layers of Smooch! The flowers are from the fantastic new Spellbinder's dies by Donna Salazar - Carnation Creations. I added some netting between the layers. For the leaves, I achieved a really shabby look by cutting them from Grunge paper, then painting them with Crackle paint in Shabby Shutters and then spritzing it with Smooch.
