ATC by Fiona Paltridge


Hello my 7 Dots Friends. Fiona here with you today to share a trio of tiny Artist trading cards I have made to share with my fellow 7 Dots team members.

The beautiful Keren Tamir sent me a little ATC the other day all the way from Canada. She made it from our latest collections and it was so cute that it inspired me to make some more. Especially because I’d like to send one back to her.

I chose to use the stunning “Hazy Days” collection. Every time I pull out a piece from this collection it still takes my breath away. the colours are stunning and DeeDee did such a great job bringing my negative scans to life! I still can’t believe how cool they look.

I did a little bit of gritty modelling paste scraping through the gorgeous birds on a wire stencil and some stamping to make the base of the cards interesting.

Then I added some textiles for added texture and finished them all off with some Die Cut Elements, Stickers and word stickers.

Hello my 7 Dots Studio friends, Fiona here with you today to share my layout I created using the sensational Hazy Days collection.

I absolutely adore the colours DeeDee has embedded into this collection. They are so bold and beautiful and compliment the rusty browns and yellows she has used to coordinate the design.

This layout was so much fun to create. I can’t say I’ve ever combined these colors before in a layout. I was a little apprehensive to begin with but boy do i like the final outcome!

I have also recorded the process of me creating this page as a sort of tutorial for you to watch.

All in all it actually came together relatively quickly. I just love it when a page “gets it” and decides to just fall into place for you.

I hope you enjoy the video and are inspired to give this new collection a go.

xx Fiona

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
