Mixed Media Rusted Canvas by Keren Tamir

I created a highly texture canvas collage using several chipboard elements from both the Dreamscapes and the Hazy Days collections. I also used the triangular stamp and stencil from the Dreamscapes collection to create texture.

I hope you like the patina rust effect I created. You can watch the video below to see the step by step tutorial:

Neon by Fiona Paltridge

Hello my 7 Dots Studio friends. Fiona here with you today to share a neon layout I have created using papers from the Dreamscapes collection.

I wanted to create a contrast up against the black striped paper, so I decided what better to contrast with black and white than neon!

I love the way it turned out. I didn’t scrimp on the neon paint either! I slapped it down nice and thick so the impact would be grand and it worked!

I added a coordinating flair and some Chipboard from Um WOW Studio to embellish the layout.

I finished it all off by mounting my photo on a tag from the 12×12 set and a title from the 6×12 word stickers.

I am really happy with the contrasting colours and the striking black and white against it. Neons are not normally my go to colours but I’m thinking I might have to get them out more often.

Forever by Lisa Amiet

This layout features my husband of almost 20 years. We are celebrating our anniversary this month so thought I would create a layout featuring him. I had to keep the layout quite masculine and not lovey dovey as he wouldn’t appreciate that :)
The Hazy Days collection is perfect for my theme as it has a grungy, worn, film like feel to it. Ideal for a layout about a special man.

I started with ‘Hazy Days 12 x 12 Oil Spil’ paper as my base. I have then used the ‘Letters Stencil’ and ‘Hazy Days Chevron Stencil’ to add some dimension and colour to my base. I have used a mix of inks and modelling paste to achieve this effect. I have also used the stamps from the ‘Hazy Days Clear Stamp Set’, with brown inks, to add some spill and nail marks to my base. I have then added blue using the chevron stamp.

I have then used pieces from the ‘Hazy Days 6 x 6 Paper Pad’ that I have distressed, along with ‘Hazy Days Tags 12 x 12′ to add layers to my page. The tags are great for building up in co-ordinating patterns to the papers. Added in among my layout are pieces from the ‘Die-Cut Elements 6 x 12′ and some of the ‘Element Stickers 6 x 12′. I have also used some checkerboard and gear chipboard pieces scattered among my layers. To finish off I have used one of the ‘Word Stickers 6 x 12′ and a chipboard title ‘forever’. For finer detail I have then used black micro beads dribbled over my page.

I hope you like what I have created and that it inspires you to create something today.
