I Dreamed A Dream - 5th Chunky Book Page

This is the end result for the page on my work surface the other day.
You know when you wake up sometimes and you can't quite hold on to the dream you've had and you're really miffed because you just know it was a humdinger?
Oh!.....Perhaps it's just me then? HOL
Anyway that was the thinking behind the prompt from Heather for this page.

I used Alcohol Inks in raisin, terracotta, espresso and copper  for the background
...stamped the T!m frame onto grungeboard and Distress Embossed in vintage photo with a bit of DI scattered straw to colour it........then cut it out
.......stuck some metal tape (used for heat could use Ten Seconds Studio metal) to a piece of card and tried to get the feel of an old mirror by using alcohol inks (espresso with just a hint of raisin) around the edge where the silvering sometimes comes away
...if I do say so myself I like that a lot!! LOL
.........stamped the sentiment (my own) once in coffee Archival and once again on top in black Archival to try and get that double vision thing you get on a mirror if you do write on it!!
.....then stuck this behind the frame
.....stamped the T!m numbers round the edges (it's the bottom part of the pens on the Mona Lisa set) in black Archival
......stamped the elephant in coffee Archival for a subtle dreamy image :)
....the other part of the sentiment is stamped onto the middle section of the T!m die cut plaque and cut down for the fragments
.......added an idea-ology clock face and some photo turns as hands (I've left them a little loose and then you can still turn them if you like).

That's 5 down and 4 to go!
I think I just might have a chance of finishing them all in time! :)
Thanks for looking and happy stamping
xoxo Sioux
