In the spotlight by Anna Wiśniewska

Hi Folks!

I have something special for You today. I am sure that You have already seen our new collections – “Dreamscapes” and “Hazy Days”.
I am totally in love with both of them, and I’d like to show You the process of creating a boyish, messy layout using “Hazy Days” collection.

This is my layout:

To make it I used “Hazy Days” collection.

I chose the background paper and two layers under the photo.

To create the mixed media background I took some gauze and sticked it to the paper as well as some art stones and mika flakes.

I used the brown ink and the stencil to make some patterns on the
background paper.

I sticked the twine and coloured specified elements with colourful powders and acrylic paints.

To make the background more interesting and dynamic I sticked three buttons around the place for the picture and I decorated the with art
stones and powders.

I stamped randomly around the page. These news stamps are wonderful!

In the meantime I prepared a few triangle chipboards (from “Dreamscapes” collection), and now I could stick them on the background.

I stick all elements together – the photo and the layers of paper along with some paper elements and stickers and then I sticked them to the
background paper.

I gave a little touch of white gesso to all elements on the layout – the photo, the buttons, the gauze, art stones and even the paper layers
under the photo.

To get some interesting effects on the buttons I gave them a little splash of crackle accents. I also outlined the buttons and chipboards
with white pen.

Time for some serious splashing – I used black, green and gold inks.

And finally I outline the whole layout with white pen. Now it’s finished.

Finished layout and some close-ups.

Choose to be by Sandra Bernard

For this month, I choose to play with several collections to make a girly layout. I tried to mixed all the 7 Dots Studio things To show you that you can think outside the box of a given collection to obtain something else. The only limit is your imagination, so go crazy.

I cut two papers from Cold Country collection to make my background. I inserted a piece of chipboard between the papers. I used distress oxide with stencil from Cotton Candy Dreams collection and orange embossing powder with stamp from the Homegrown collection. I also coloured my tags from Lost and Found collection and used some words stickers from Fortune-teller collection.

Hello Dear creative souls
Today I present you a layout I made for 7 Dots Studio. Of course I made little video for you.

I start with the beautiful papers from the Fortune Teller collection. I make a heap of papers and tags to put in my picture. I play with labels and stickers to add some beautiful details. I add some Finnabair paste and some droplets and the project is done.

Please Enjoy the video.
