Dream Catcher Canvas for Daily ART

Hello everyone!

Today I would like to share with you the second April project I created for Daily ART, which is also my final dt work for the company.

I had such a great time designing for Daily ART and I would like to say many thanks to Aleksandr Romanenkov – owner - for being so generous with the art supplies we got as designers.

I wish all the best to the rest of the Design Team. I know that some designers are staying, others are leaving and some new are coming in. You all have an adventurous, inspiring and creative artistic journey!

Back to the project - having a boho –gypsy theme for this month - the idea of creating a dream catcher and placing it in front of a bright, full of texture background came to me instantly. For this project, I was very much inspired by some wonderful dream catchers I saw on Facebook by Stacey Young.
So, here it is my…

Dream Catcher Canvas



I worked on a 30 x 40 cm (approx. 12” x 15 3/4”) canvas. To create the dream catcher I combined two different sized hoops and weaved it with woolen yarn. I gessoed the whole object and used Gel Medium Matt to glue it on the canvas.


I sculpted the feathers with air-dry paper clay. I applied some Fine Texture Paste through a stencil on the whole canvas and let it dry completely. Gave one coat of White Gesso to the whole surface and let that dry too.


To paint my composition, I started with the darker colors and then I created more layers with the lighter colors, in order to achieve depth and interesting shading. I also emphasized in accenting the texture I had created.


I used a Sizzix die and some old scrapbooking paper from my stash, to make some of the flowers and leaves. I highlighted those with Glossy Ink Sprays in pink and green. I used them to create a cluster on the right side of the dream catcher.


Lastly, I balanced my composition with some trims of fabric and lace, on the left side.

This project made me very happy and I think it was because of all those bright yellows and pinks I chose to use. And I must say this is a rare thing for me to do haha I am known for my love for rusty and distressed surfaces.


I hope you like it too! If you do, I would love to read your comments or just a hello!

Stay tuned, because I always have something new in progress ☺☺☺

Thank you for visiting my blog!

Until next time,

Be Brave, Be who You Want to Be!
