June Challenge: Daily Routines

This time for our monthly challenge we want you to focus on things that accompany you in your daily life. The topic of this month challenge is “Daily Routines”. We want you to look around and search for things you can’t live without day by day. What is it? Please take part in the monthly fun and share with us the projects you come up with about day-to-day activities.

 

Here is the inspiration from our team:

I have many daily routines and I’m a kind of routine lover. I love when I know what to do and when and that the everyday life is rolling. When thinking of a project to represent a daily routine I first thought about altering a tea cup but then decided to do a “tea bag”. Ha ha, pun intended! Tea is something I drink daily. Weekends start with a cup of tea, creating starts with a cup of tea and I usually end my day with a cup, too. I’m usually in too much of a hurry to drink a cup during the workday but sometimes I treat myself with a cuppa there, too. The soft tones of “Dreamscapes” fit the project perfectly.

 

What are your daily routines??Well… mine are those of a modern lifestyle for sure…Coffee first thing in the morning, e mail checking, mobile close for capturing a moment!! I know this may be your daily routines too. I also know this is not a healthy life he he he. But I have another routine for myself only… Gym trainning. Now try to include this one in your life too!!Kisses.

 

With this layout Louise wanted to document a fairly regular routine she has during her working week. With many of the private hospitals she works in they have fabulous little cafe’s so she always like to get to the hospital a little bit early so that she can have a nice big Coffee before starting work.

 

The inspiration for this Art Journal page actually came from the packaging of the Hazy Days stamps. I love how it looks and wanted to make a spread that reminded of if. I used several layers of acrylic paints and the Hazy Days stamps in combination to achieve a similar background to the one in the stamp set pack. When happy I added dimension with texture paste and the Dreamscapes Triangle stencil. The topic of this months challenge is “Daily Routines” and I wanted to share a brief overview of my day from wake up call to bedtime. The Writer´s Block numbers stencil worked perfectly to add my time schedule, and the word stickers from Hazy Days summon my day with a humoristic twist.

 

I can’ imagine a day without reading books. It’s my addiction, the air I need to breathe. That’s why I’ve created three bookmarks for our June challenge. I made them from “Dreamscapes” – one of the newest collections.

 

Hello 7 Dots Studio’s fans! My daily routine? READING! Each day I try to read at least for 30 minutes, It’s my moment where I can really relax! For my background, I used the “Under the covers” paper from the DREAMSCAPES collection. I have added some stamping, Art Stones and started layering using Dreamscapes papers, tags and stickers from the Writer’s Block.

 

Because the challenge topic is about routine for my page I chose something that I do every morning. A walk with my dog. He needs to move and so do I. I wanted to emphasize the yellow of my paper to make a reference to the sun and to the happiness this routine gets me. Scrapbooking is great at highlight the good little things and 7 Dots can always help you with it. Thanks. San xx

 

Today I present a page that illustrates my passion the arts. Every day I try to be in direct connection with my heart. I had fun using black and white together with some bursts of happiness. I used the illumination collection I adore. I made a little video for you. Please enjoy.

Trust in yourself by Sandra Bernard

Today, I present you a layout made with the new Dreamscapes collection. Even if I try to go away from earth colours, this colour palette always manages to sneak into my projects. I can’t avoid my own nature. If I let my imagination guide me, these colours always come up.

So, I start by using the geometry stencil from the collection, with distress oxyde, then with modelling paste still with the same stencil. Later I added some ink in a from of a mist, water and distress oxyde through the same stencil again.

I added some texture with dry green moss and I put some chipboards on the top. I used a tag from the same collection and added some stickers and elements all over my clustering.

As usual, I used some word stickers witch I’m always in love with. Without giving an exact title, they give the spirit of what I want to highlight in my creation.

Thanks and see you soon
Sandra xx

Eyes like a shutter by Sandra Bernard

Hello gang! I’m back today for a tutorial with my first use of the new Hazy Days collection from 7 Dots Studio.


I had this idea stuck in my head for a while now, so I finally let it out! I love to play with gauze, it gives so much texture. After inks and textures, I just have to add some elements, words stickers and tags from the collection and a few others things like flowers and a flair and it’s all done!!



All you need to create the base for this one is in this one collection from 7 Dots Studio. So enjoy it!!
Just watch the video and see how I did it!
