arty play


What if we were made of daydreams? What magic would we weave? How would our eyes sparkle at the thought of another day, a fresh start, a Monday full of wonder?

What if we were made of daydreams? If our to-do lists were replaced with new projects? Errands with good company? What ifs replaced with I Ams? The mundane everyday infused with possibility?

What if we were made of daydreams? Where would they lead this week?

By request, the full sized photos are now available for download. You can find the high-res print here, and all the other photos in screen resolution here. While I am happy to provide you with these photos as a free download for personal use, I do ask you do not use them for commercial use. Thank you for supporting and respecting my work!


Dreamscapings is a monthly instagram + patreon prompt from Kimberley at Lacelit. This piece was inspired by the spring blooms in our garden, and by my current mood of thoughtful consideration and planning as I approach a milestone birthday. As a multi-passionate crafter, I attempted to bring in as many different aspects of my hobby life as made sense, to complete this piece.
