A fairy tale mind by Sanderijn de Bruin

Hi everybody!
Here is my mixed media layout ‘A fairy tale mind…’

The angel statue in the picture, is a gorgeous statue that stands in sombody’s front yard in my village. I always love the elegancy it sends out. I took the picture a couple of years ago, but I still love it. It reminds me of something mysterious and looks like it comes from a fairy tale…It’s angelic and graceful…

I started with two layers of clear gesso on my paper, so I could add pink watercolor without damaging my paper. I stamped with clear stamps from the Yuletide collection on the background, added the watercolor, and when it was dry, I added some light paste with mica powder and Fortune Teller Dots Stencil.

I glued down a few Cotton Candy Dreams tags, and then started building the page with cheese cloth, flowers, Writer’s block die cuts, word stickers and more.
Because I used the stars from the stamp in the background, I decided to add more stars as embellishments to my page.

To finish my page, I added sequins, glass beads, white ink splatters and some ultra fine glitter.
And here is my video tutorial for you, I hope you will enjoy it.

Thank you for stopping by!
Love, Sanderijn

Fool by Anastasi Kuznetsova

Hello! Anastasi here! Today I want to show you a layout that creation of which was inspired by one of the albums by “Alice” group. More precisely I was very inspired by my incoming trip to St. Petersburg this May, where they are going to play a concert dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the album “Fool”.

As an inscription to a photo I took the preface from this album. This is a quote from the Code of Hammurabi: “Look at him – a man as a man, but inside – a city in smoking ruins.”

Epic poet by Fiona Paltridge

Hello 7 Dots fans, Fiona here with you today to share a little collage piece I have made and framed to put on display using the gorgeous “Writer’s Block” collection.

I began with a little 6×8″ piece of the Sincerely paper that I trimmed down from the original 12×12 piece so it would fit nicely in my frame.

I wanted a grungy look so I gave it a very light coat of gesso and added some watercolour in the browns to coordinate with the papers.

Then I began layering all my favourite elements from the die cuts, the stickers and the word stickers. Grunging up each piece as I went. I also followed through the staple theme that is on not only the paper but also the tag I used as a feature.

I finished the college off with some scribble drawing to emphasise the words on the piece and framed it for display. I’m really happy with the finished product. I never know what to do with these little pieces I make but i think framing is the perfect solution. Can’t wait to do another one now.

See you all again soon xx
