Layout tutorial from Ebony van der Starre

Hi everyone,
I am here today to share a little step by step layout tutorial with you using a wide variety of 7 Dots products!
So here we go!

 

Step 1. Spread some white gesso over the centre of some white cardstock. I have used a sponge.

Step 2.
Tear some old book paper and adhere randomly.

Step 3.Now take a variety of 7 dots papers and tags or even stickers and add to the torn book paper as I have.

Step 4. Now take your gesso sponge and add a small amount of gesso over these papers

Step 5. Now i have cut circles from the “Drive all night’’ paper from the dreamer collection and added them as seen.
Once again I add a small amount of gesso over them once adhered.

Step 6. Now time to add some machine sewing and a photo.

Step 7.Now for some colour! I have used watercolour paints and and just kept adding various shades of colours until i was happy, ensuring to dry between colours to avoid mixing a horrible colour.

 

Step 8. Let’s add some stamping. I am using the clear stamps from the “soulmates “ range with some black archival ink.

Step 9. Now adding some stickers . i am using the Domestic Goddess 12×12 stickers , the triangles and stamp which i cut out to use as a frame only. I then once again lightly cover with gesso.

Step 10. I am adding some mesh tape in strips to add texture.

Step 11.Now take some script or text washi tape and tear off some small strips and select where you feel it needs to go on your page.

Step 12. Add some chipboard. These pieces are from the “soulmates” range.
I have dabbed a small amount of gesso on it.

Step 13. adding some more stickers. This time from the “all I ever” range. Once again when you have added all stickers add some gesso lightly over the top. I have cut these words from this tag

 

 

Step 14. Now for the finishing touches. I have added some wooden veneer circles and title from “Flutterby designs”. I have also added some more stamping and doodling and a word sticker from the “illuminations” range.
You are now done!!!!
