Dreams are made of this

Face 9

Do you sometimes get a line of a song that keeps on repeating in your head, it won’t go away and it drives you crazy?  I have been getting the lines “dreams are made of this..” all day long, for the life of me I can’t remember who sang it.  All I get is The Eurythmics and Annie Lennox!  I am most probably wrong as I went through all my cds of them and nadda!
So to get it out of my head, I thought I would do a journal page for my 9th face using these words.  I have some butterfly stamps I have never used, and as I seemed to have seen a lot of butterflies on blog posts today, I thought I would join in. As it is almost Valentine’s Day I thought I would do a romantic piece, well, romance and dreams go together.  I used the stamps, markers, watercolours and chalk pastels.


  1. Really lovely! I hope you get the answers to your songstress question. Have you thought to Google it?

    1. Thank you Lynn! Just googled it was the Eurythmics, Title is Sweet Dreams
