America's dreams

Hi my dear crafty friends.

I was so excited for the International Tournament of Art & Craft 2017 but life went in a way a bit and I almost missed it... ALMOST!!! :) I would like to share with you today my first project for The Challenge #5 - The Americas. We were to be inspired by this amazing moodboard:


and challenged to include: shades of green, something transparent or sharp, like ice, an element suggestive of money and currency, element inspired by music or samba and feather, metal or leather.

I decided to make an altered tambourine instrument, that I turned into a dreamcatcher. The art piece is made in shades of ligh blue and green. I used pieces of plexiglass behind the composition and also added some real money - coins for the decoration, that I dry-brushed with white gesso and a bit of Patina pastes touch. I also included a horse, blue butterflies and some star shaped micro beads simbolyzing the star on the Statue of Liberty, which I picked up from the moodboard photos.

I'm also entering this into this month's challenge over at Mixed media place. I think it fits perfectly to the gorgeous soft and dreamy moodboard this month.


Hope you'll like my project. I also have a new video tutorial for you on my youtube channel. Please feel wellcome to visit me there also!

Enjoy the day and see you soon. ;)
Hugs,
Aleksandra
