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

Wall Hanging Photo Collage By Keren Tamir

I created a wall hanging photo collage using recycled flower boxes. I glued the boxes to each other using gel medium and held the sides using paper clips until they were dry.
Once the the frame set-up was done I decided on a placement of my family photos in different boxes. I cut papers from both 7 Dots Studio Destination Unknown and Fortune Teller collections to fit into the remaining boxes and to frame the photos.
Finally I framed some of the photos with several chipboard frames and embellished around the collage with flowers, metals and chipboard embellishments.
These pictures were taken recently during a family vacation and the colours fit perfectly with the teal and turquoise tones of those collections.
