Dreams have no Expiry Date

This weather is ridiculous! We had yet another thunderstorm and more torrential rain last night at 2:00 and it didn't end until 3:30. And we are having another one right now. However, I have relatives that live further north and they are in desperate need of rain. My cousin said he was hoeing the garden behind the house and looked up to see it raining in the front of the house, but it never rained on the garden. So odd.

I haven't done any mixed media or art journal pages in a long time but Stamping Bella decided to start posting them on Tuesdays (or Wednesdays) again so I thought I make a page. I was reading something on the Internet and it said something about giving up on a dream and I thought to myself "Dreams shouldn't have expiry dates" and I decided right then to make a page. Here it is.


The background is the usual mixture of paint and several kinds of ink and stencils and drops of inks and rub-ons. The large flower is a foam stamp that came with some stuff from the thrift store so I had to use it but I added some acrylic paint to darken it. The clocks are Tim Holtz stamps and the numbers are a Crafter's Workshop stencil that I won. The word "Dreams" are stickers but I have no idea where they came from. I cut open the stickers and throw the top out so who knows who made them....although I think they came from the dollar store. The little butterfly sitting on the "M" is a rub-on.

So, what ever your dream is, don't give it an expiry date! Dreams are free!

Cheers
Violet

Great page. It is laid out really nicely. I love the curve to the dream word and the sunflower especially.
