Sweet Dreams Layout

I vacillated between several titles for this layout featuring King William III's royal bedchambers at Hampton court, but I finally settled on Sweet Dreams due to the ceiling painting of Mars, God of war,  sleeping in the arms of Venus, goddess of love. I knew I wanted to include a moon and stars plus a cloud or two to go with the theme of the other painting, but the Lasting Memories' Paint/Mist challenge inspired me to add pearly paint to the clouds (swirly) and moon and stars (brushed). Love the texture and shimmer it adds to this element!
And here you can see the paint detail a little better.
And since I am adding a pocket page opposite, here are the photos and journal cards for that!
