The Secret Life of Daydreams

Dear fellow daydreamers,

Let's have some romance! Don't we all just love Pride and Prejudice? (If not, please pretend you do.) Did you see the 2005 movie with Keira Knightley? It's not my favourite Jane Austen adaption but I love it still. It's my inspiration resource for week #150 challenge at CCCB, where I'm still the guest designer.

Dear Ros challenged us with the theme "Inspired by a Song." Create a project inspired by a song and tell us what the song is. The prize is a guest designer spot at CCCB!

The music that inspired me is the soundtrack CD of the P and P movie. And this is what I came up with: a stuffed fabric heart hanger. Shabby fabrics, (some tea dyed) lace fabrics, and fabric flowers. All stitched by hand.

Update: because of copyright I deleted the photos of my project in which you could see a photo of Keira Knightley that I had used on the fabric heart I created.

I tried to capture the foresty and mossy feeling of the photo which I had used in my project. 

Happy crafting to you!

xx Wen

  3. Hi Wendy,

    Prachtige dromerige post.
    Heel mooi en sfeervol.
    Wat een mooi collage heb je van de foto's gemaakt.
    Maar je hart steelt echt de show hoor !!
    Werkelijk schitterend !
    Je heb bereikt wat je wilde.
    De sfeer van de foto komt zo mooi terug in alles wat je er
    omheen hebt gedaan.
    Hele mooie kleuren. De bloemen en dat tere kant !!
    Je brengt een gevoel over. Knap!!

    Liefs en hugs,


  4. Not depressing, beautiful. I love P&P

  5. Dear Wendy
    You have created a most beautiful heart and captured the feeling so very well with this forest theme. The colour tonings work so nicely.
    A lovely piece and I also love the words and the photo collage.
    Not at all depressing to me!
    Hope you are feeling more uplifted lately!
    Sending warm hugs,

  6. I love that book and the movie!

  7. I think I am the only person on the planet who as not read Pride and Prejudice. But I do have it on my list of must reads.. I just love your Gorgeous creation here.. Such a creative idea my friend..


  8. Oh wat mooi Wendy! Je hebt me helemaal blij gemaakt met je mooie creatie! Ben zelf een enorme fan van Jane Austen en ik zou bijna zeggen 'uiteraard' is Pride & Prejudice mijn favoriet! Die film was gaaf! Zo gepassioneerd, die mooie stem van Matthew Macfadyen... Maar ik kan je zeggen dat mijn eigen Mr. Darcy z├ęker zo charmant is ha ha ha!! Wat zijn je bloemen mooi, gewoon dromerig... Liefs, Ira

  9. How very beautiful your handmade heart is and what a lovely post ... Must be the romantic in me but I understand it all .....

  10. Forgot to say how much I love the music! Thank you xxx

    You captured the feeling to perfection.
    Such a glorious creation.

  14. I love that you used those mossy colors! Highlighted with lace and fabric flowers of various styles... just lovely! I agree with your choice of movie (even if you like other variations)... and actually, any historical movie with Kiera Knightly I love!

  15. What a wonderful creation Wendy, and not just that, I also admired how you used photoshop element, I am ashamed to said that I bought that more than a year ago and still can't really work it properly, I must learn from you Master!!!!

  18. Wat een prachtige creatie. De kleuren passen zo mooi bij elkaar en geven dat dromerige sfeertje.

    Nog bedanktt voor je lieve commentaar op mijn blog. Een wat late reactie van mijn kant maar ik ben al een tijdje in Spanje aan het overwinteren en zie mijn mail niet elke dag. Ik geniet van je prachtige werk op je blog.

  20. First of all, I'm so happy to have you join CCCB team ... your work are so gorgeous. And I, have loved P&P since I watched the 2005 version :). Can't have too much of Mr Darcy, aren't we ... the past few years, I've been making mini albums and altered arts with P&P themed in mind so much so, some of my then-colleagues thought I have no family!!. LOL. Keep scrapping these two people :). So, please to know that they're celebrating the 200th year of P& P, I never knew that :). I'm happy to become your new follower!. HUGS.


Thank you so much for leaving me a sweet message, I love reading your comments. Hugs and happy day to you! xx Wen
