Irina Gerschuk and Helen Tilbury

I’ve created flourish card and a match tag. I used Soulmates Collection papers to create the background and die-cut doilies. As I wanted to add some texture to the background I embossed stamps from the Thoughts Keeper collection.

To create die-cut leaves I used Love Is In The Air Collection paper – to my mind it’s color is so natural and fresh!!

 

 

 

 

 

To create the flourish compositions I used 7 Dots Studio chipboards and badge – they’re perfect almost for any type of project)))

– Soulmates – Daydreamers
– Soulmates – Maybe today
– Soulmates – Welcome to happiness
– Soulmates – Chipboard
– Nature Walk – Chipboards

Hello everyone! It’s HELEN here back with you today sharing a layout this month.

I am still waiting for my new 7 Dots Studio papers to arrive so I worked instead with the beautiful Dreamer Collection, starting with “Sweet Dreams” as my base paper.

I just LOVE the vignette edges of this paper & the warm colours of this entire collection!

I worked with my offcuts for this layout & pasted onto the background pieces of patterned paper from ‘”Night’s Fever”, which as you can see incorporates many different shades of colour, making it perfect for cutting up!

Dreamer - Nights Fever

To build up my background I also used the negative area from one of the Illumination Sticker sheets {the part left on the sheet once the stickers are all removed}. You do not have to wait to use up all the stickers first though as you can carefully remove this background area from your sticker sheets & your stickers will still remain in tact on the sticky background. I use this area of stickers all the time as it adds another interesting textural layer. I love too that it means there is less waste!!

 

I added some stamping to my background as well, using my favourite number strips stamp from the Nature Walk Collection as well as another favourite from the Cold Country Collection – It is just a part of a much larger stamp but I like to use it as a sun shape by placing my finger behind that area when stamping. I think it makes a great accent!

 

(btw. did you know, that you can buy above stamps now in 7 Dots Studio store at very discounted price – only 4,5 EUR each?!! – they are available while stock lasts)

I used some words from the Illumination 6 x 12 inch die-cut sheet to decorate my page.

So I ended up using 3 totally different collections on my page!

A lot of Dreamer, a bit of Illumination & a pinch of Cold Country!!

The GREAT thing about 7 Dots Studio is that everything can look good together!!!

 

 

To blend things together & tie in with my photo I used a brick mask stencil together

with some modeling paste then sprinkled embossing powder into the wet paste.

I hope you enjoyed my page today & it is time to wish you all a very happy

2015! HAPPY NEW YEAR!! See you again in January 🙂
