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.

Mail Art by Keren Tamir

Hi Everyone,
It’s Keren here for the 7 Dots Studio blog.
I created this mixed media book cover using the Writer’s Block collection. I mounted the composition on a piece of corrugated cardboard I’d cut from a box. I used lots of mediums to alter it and make it look rusted and old. I wanted to have a book cover hooked on with large jump rings so I can attach beautiful greeting cards I’ve received from some friends around the world.

Below is a step by step video video tutorial on how I created this cover:

“Find Beauty in Chaos” by Keren Tamir

Hi Everyone,
I created an art journaling page using my favourite paper from the Cotton Candy Dreams Collection: Strawberry Fields. I love those bubble trees and I really wanted to incorporated them in my project.
I have a step by step video tutorial below to show how I created this layout.

I especially love the title and message that I chose for this art journal page. “Find beauty in chaos” is something that our world really needs nowadays. I feel that even if in life everything is as chaotic as it may seem, it still does have beauty just like a wild garden. I love how wild gardens grow, and this is exactly what I wanted to show though this art journal page.
Everything has beauty we just need to open our eyes and see it.
At times, as I was creating this page, it felt it was messy and chaotic but as I kept on adding different mediums, it took on its own beauty and so I knew I had to choose this specify title for this page.

Thank you for always visiting the 7 Dots Studio blog and I welcome this new year with open arms.
