Among the clouds by Fiona Paltridge

Hello my 7 Dots friends, Fiona here with you today to share a layout I have created using the gorgeous Dreamscapes collection.

I just adore this 9mm paper, I adore all of them in the collection really but this one in particular stands out to me. I think it’s the vintage writing on it. I just love old ephemera so this really speaks to me.

I created the background by spraying through the triangle stencil directly onto the background. I didn’t want to waste any of the spray so I flipped it and made a negative impression also. I love the cool effect it made.

I embellished the page with old book pages to compliment the 12×12 background paper.

I also added some of the die cut elements that coordinate with the collection.

I find creating with this collection so easy. It is such a pretty collection and I find it compliments many of my photos. Thank you for popping in and checking out my creation. I’ll see you all again soon. xx

Grungy Trio by Fiona Paltridge

Hello my 7 Dot Studio friends, Fiona here with you today with a little trio I have made using the gorgeous new collection “Dreamscapes”.

The little trio was inspired by the uber talented DeeDee Catron, our illustrious designer here at 7 Dots Studio. DeeDee makes these little trio’s all the time and I’ve been wanting to try my own for a while now.

I started with three papers from the 6×6 pad, which I trimmed to 5″ x 3.5″, about the size you would make an artists trading card.

The over all effect came out a bit more grungy than I had initially planned but I really don’t mind the final look to be honest. I mean I do like grungy anyway so it wasn’t a problem when it evolved that way.

I have included a process video for you to watch. the link is below. I really hope you like my little trio. it was so much fun to put together.

I’ll see you all again next time xxx.

Stretch your Imagination by Fiona Paltridge

Hello 7 Dots friends, Fiona here with you today to share a little journal page I have created using the new “Dreamscapes” collection.

I am so excited about these two new ranges …. it was so hard to decide which one to play with first but the tags from the “Dreamscapes” collection just called to me.

They are so gorgeous. I just love the designs on them and the colours are divine! I just adore rose gold and dusty pink type colours and teamed up with that wheat yellow colour …. so yummy!!

I also just love the triangle shapes in the chipboard and on the stencil. I used the stencil with some coordinating spray colours to create the triangle background.

Then I used the same spray to colour the little chipboard triangles to sprinkle over the art journal page.

I am so happy with this little creation. I always like to have a little practice with the colours and the elements in my journal before heading onto bigger projects with new collections. Now I’m ready for the big time!! I’ll see you all again soon, next time with a little tutorial.

Bye for now xx
