The tree of dreams

Hello my friends, I hope all is well.

This weeks project is one close to my heart. I’ve always been drawn the the tree of life symbol. I am a Celt after all! I love the sacred meanings across different cultures over thousands of years- rebirth , connection to ancestors, healing, strength… magic. Trees are all connected. They have true wisdom.We are but transient creatures passing in the breeze of life. What stories they must have. They are so beautiful!

I also wanted to demonstrate how to create a magical glow by layering colour and creating a significant contrast in the values.

I’ve used the beautiful tree of dreams stamp from Lavinia stamps. I hope you get a chance to check out the techniques used in the video.

You may find my video including product links here:

On the house sale front although we have had some interest lately we still haven’t sold . However we still dare to dream….

I hope you enjoy the tutorial. As always a particular thanks to the very kind subscribers who have made a super thanks donation. Each one however small touches my heart!

Sending love…

Lisa xx

  1. OMG Lisa, you’ve absolutely out done yourself. Your work speaks volumes to me at a time I need it the most. Wish I felt good enough to tackle some Lavina and it might take a while before I could begin to follow yours. Thanks for posting Lisa xo Karen Melbourne, 1 of 49 I believe that started the site.
