First steps by Anastasi Kuznetsova

Who said that pink is only for girls? What if the boy is so sweet that you want to eat him, like a candy? I made a layout with my younger nephew. In the photo, he is exactly one year old and he makes his first conscious steps. And since the spring has already come, I chose the spring, bright, flowering colour palette for this piece of work.



I really liked how the gray colour of the paper “Nature Walk” works together with the pink frame. The green and red accents added a general contrast and dynamic to the picture. The inscriptions from the Cotton Candy Dreams have helped me very much. Also I like to use tags 7 Dots Studio in my works. Here I took 3 tags from the collections “Homegrown” and “The Queen’s Heart”.

Run wild by Fiona Paltridge

Hello 7 Dots lovelies! Fiona here with you again to share an abstract art style layout using the beautiful elements from the “Cotton Candy Dreams” collection.

I started this background with a very abstract idea in mind using lots of wet mediums like texture paste, acrylic paint and gesso. Once the background dried i added some stamping and die cut elements along with the element stickers.

I just love playing with my layouts not knowing where they may end up. The fun element of the abstract style really appeals to me.

I find the less thought I give it and the more I enjoy the process, then the more likely I am to like the end result.

I use a sturdy canvas board so it will take all the wet mediums i throw onto it. Give it a go …. it’s very liberating and even when it appears that you’ve created nothing but a hot mess then start to layer some elements on top and you’ll be surprised at how well it all brings it together.
Most of all, have fun!
