Dream Catcher - 2 Crafty Chipboard

May 20, 2019

Hi Friends and welcome to my blog today. I am sharing a project for 2 Crafty Chipboard.  I have a mixed media Dream Catcher for you today along with a step out tutorial.

I used a 6 inch embroidery hoop along with some fabulous pieces from 2 Crafty to create this beautiful addition to my craft wall.

I have always been drawn to Dream Catchers, not because of my Native background, but the story of them and why they were created is calming to me.

Did you know that the meaning of a "Dream Catcher" Sometimes referred to as "Sacred Hoops," Ojibwe dream catchers were traditionally used as talismans to protect sleeping people, usually children, from bad dreams and nightmares.
Good dreams pass through and gently slide down the feathers to comfort the sleeper below

Here are a few peeks below

The chipboard takes to mediums quite nicely and i love the bold colors on this project. I used the inset smaller clock from the large set as it fit the hoop perfectly.
