Tutorial from Ebony

Hi everyone,
I have another bright layout to share with you all today using lot’s of 7 Dots products mixed with mixed media products. So here we go with a step by step tutorial.

Step 1
Take a piece of cardstock and use an old credit card or spatula to smear some bright yellow paint onto thie page.

Step 2 .
Take some scraps of 7 dots papers and some ledger or book papers and layer them up for your background.

Step 3
Now I like to use up all my scraps so here I am using the stencil or the leftover pieces to these element pieces. I have cut out the two heart shapes and the circle shape and then adhered them as shown.

Step 4.
Now I have used a Crafters workshop stencil and sprayed it with Dylusions bubblegum spray. I then placed it over my layout and gently rubbed the spray and the image onto my layout.

 

Step 5. Next take an orange Faber Castello gelato and draw some flower shapes. Then add some stickers from The destination unknown element stickers. I have used two here.

Step 6.
Next I have used another Crafters Workshop stencil and a gelato to add some dots to the layout.

Step 7.
Once again using products in a different way, take some alphas and cut a small section from it . Mine are from the Domestic goddess range. Work out what photos you will use and place behind the 2 of them.

 

Step 8.
Now its time to add some more elements. I have used some words cut from the Messy head paper Big words and some Iluminations elements.

Step 9.
I have also scattered some more of the loose alpha stickers.

step 10.
Now add some stamping. I have used the script stamp from the Destination unknown set.

Step 11.
Add a title.

Step 12.
Add some doodling and details with pens and more stamps.

 

You are done!

Materials used:
Messy head paper Big words

Destination unknown: stickers 6×12
clear stamps

Illuminations: elements 6×12

April challenge – Rainbows

 

 

Hello :)

Are  you ready for a new challenge? :) Our Design Team would love to take you with us – to the other side of rainbow :) Who does not love rainbows?! They are so magical! And they always bring a smile on everybody’s face. So be inspired and create a project with/about RAINBOW. Please take a look at projects from our talented Design Team:

 

Rainbows made me think not only about vibrant colors but the treasures at the end of them. So I decided to use that thought and make a page about my greatest treasure – my family. The photo suited the theme well because of the sunrays coming through the spruce branches.
I created a watercolor style background by using the primaries and green and then layered stamping and stencilling on top using the same colors. On top I then layered papers from different collections trying to have every color present.

 

 

 

This is the layout about one wonderful summer day. This day was full of colors, joy and fun with my loved children.

 

 

As a background paper I have used one from Domestic Goddess collection. I have added chipboard pieces and colours to create a rainbow on my layout.

 

 

I decided to make a lo about summer fun using lovely 9th Wave Collection. Blue sky and see make us feel free and happy!

 

 

My layout presents a photo of my younger son when he was about one year old. I remember that I loved that time. He was cute, sweet and always brought lots of joy and brightness to our lives. I thought that he was like a rainbow :)
The background of my layout is also a rainbow I created it by mixing a few watercolours.

 

Our theme this month is rainbows and when I think of rainbows, I think of lots of colours together. That’s why I used this picture of my daughter during last year’s Katy Perry concert. They threw lots of colourful confetti at the end of the concert and I took a picture of my daughter with all the confetti!!

March challenge – nature

 

The theme of our newest challenge is NATURE. Create any project inspired by nature, use at least one product from 7 Dots Studio and join our challenge :) Here is the inspiration from our Design Team:

 

Sweet Marsha sent me some time ago a parcel which had these flower seeds in it. The seeds were mixed in paper mache and the result was die cut into small flowers. My daughters were so excited when they saw them and when we visited grandparents during spring we took the seeds along and planted them in a pot on the playhouse’s porch. They loved watching them grow and bloom during the summer vacation they spent there while my husband and me were working.
I tried to use natural details on the page as well adding some burlap and a flair with a birch pattern in there. I also kept the color scheme otherwise quite soft and natural but added some pink in there.

 

Hello!!! Today i want to share with you my vintage card inspired by nature and wood. Amazing 7Dots Studio Thoughts Keeper Collection helps me to make this card a little bit mystic.

 

Nature

These photos of my son were taken in Alaska near a glacier. Since the theme this month is Nature, I thought these pictures depicted the theme perfectly. What better place to enjoy nature than in Alaska?

 

 

When I saw the theme of the new challenge I just couldn’t resist. As you know I ‘m a little crazy about flowers …. So here I am with a new floral composition …

 

“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere. – Vincent Van Gogh”
I used photos of roses from my garden. Gardening is an opportunity to get closer to nature.
I have used the ‘Thoughts Keepers’ no4 paper for the background and lots of stickers and elements from ‘Nature Walk’ and ‘Thoughts Keepers’ collections.

 

 

 

Nature…
There is so much beauty in nature! I think nobody can resist the outstanding beauty of the sea, the forest, the meadow, the mountains…
I live near the sea and I have a great privilege to admire it quite often. The same is with forest and meadows – there are many wonderful forests and meadows where I live. But I can soak up the view of the mountains only once a year, so for me it is always an amazing experience.

 

For this challenge I’ve decided to create a flourish card with a volume composition. I’ve used flowers, vines and decorative berries to create the composition. I’ve used different natural elements (acorns, wood, sisal, feathers) to highlight the theme of the challenge.

 

These rough shells found on the seashore are a small part of my collection. I used to gather pieces of nature from the places I have been to. Pebbles, dried flowers and feathers make my smile every time I open the box of my memories.

 

I love flowers, butterflies the beautiful things of the Nature..I made this card thinking in all the beauty that give us the Spring.

 

There is nothing more inspiring for me than nature! I love forests and deep green color – these things drive me crazy. I chose my photo taken in our botanical garden and I love how trees surround me. A pure magic of nature, hope I inspire you and can’t wait to see your projects!
