Heal- Mixed Media Shadow Box by Keren Tamir

I created this artsy shadow box frame as a gift to my husband. My husband is a Chiropractor and I wanted to design a mixed media piece for him to hang in his office. I had a plastic spine shaped object from an old key-chain he used to have. I used it as the centre piece of my art work.
I wanted to create a very vintage, worn out looking piece, so I used one of my all time favourite collections Dreamer. The colours in the dreamer collection were perfect to use to create this effect. I used the “Daydreaming” paper to wrap and cover the wooden frame. Then I used the “Sleepless” paper as accents.
I also used lots of chipboard to embellish the shadow box both on the edges and as an anchor for the spine.

Art journal by Anna Rogalska

Hello everybody! Anna is here.
I created this mixed media Journaling page using the different collections from 7 Dots Studio . For me this one was about playing with layering and colors.
I love all the tags, stickers and die cut elements from the ‘Dreamer’ and ‘Wonderland’ collections. They are just perfect for my art journal page.

I created my background with white gesso through a stencil from UmWowStudio.

Hope you’ll like it.

Video tutorial by Elena Morgun

Hello, everyone!
Elena Morgun here today. This time I have created round cards. And I have prepared a video tutorial for you!

 


I have told you about my love to 7 Dots Studio papers a lot of times. Today I would like to stress the fact that because of its density this paper is perfect for working with paints and mediums.
I took two circles for the basis and some die cuts from different collections. Sometimes I have small die cuts left after finishing the project and today was the time to finally use them altogether on these cards. I also added tags to the composition. They are so wonderful and the size is just perfect!

 


I used Primary Elements powders and I love that the paper “behaved” really well!


At first I used the powders with the water, then I mixed them with texture paste and applied to my cards through the stencil. Then I colored everything and added some gesso mixed with water. I love the complicated and multi-detailed look that I got.

Happy crafting!
