Altered Winter Wonderland Shadow Box by Keren Tamir

Hi Everyone,
Its Keren here and today its an emotional and nostalgic moment for me on the 7 Dots Studio blog. Today its my last post as a DT and coordinator with 7 Dots Studio. I’ve made the decision to step down to pursue other endeavours that have risen in past few months. I’ve been with 7 Dots Studio for almost 5 years and its been the best time of my life. I was so grateful and still am, when Tusia asked me to be at DT coordinator all those years ago. I’m not only grateful to have had such an amazing opportunity but also because of her friendship and love. Tusia is one of the most amazing human beings and I’m so thankful to call her my friend. Thank you so much for everything!!

The project I created today is an up-cycled box that I made into a shadow box. I altered it using the new Northern Lights collection. As soon as I saw this beautiful collection I knew I wanted to create a winter wonderland type of scenery and this collection is perfect for that.

Watch the video below to see how I create this shadow box:

Thank you so much for all the wonderful years of support.
have a wonderful day!! Keren

Magic by Nathalie Dalibard

Hi everybody !!
It’s Nathalie here today to share a layout and a video tutorial with you. I played with the new collection NOTHERN LIGHTS. I’m just in love with this collection, I know, I always say this, each time when a new collection is out, I think that it’s the best one … but here, OMG, the colors, the design, all … It’s just a real pleasure to work with!

So… this is my first layout with this amazing line. Here is my video where you can watch my creative process and I hope you will enjoy it.

Pick flowers by Sanderijn de Bruin

Hi everybody,
The time of my last project as a Design Team member has come. It is with great sadness that I have to leave this amazing team…But new adventures have come my way, and I just need more time to follow them. I want to thank Tusia for her amazing generosity, and her always loving and kind heart for every one of us. She is a true beauty. Inside and outside. I will treasure your kindness in my heart forever. I have created a layout to give you all some sweet and tender advise…Pick flowers, not fights, and stay wild and free. Forever.

7 Dots Studio products have always made me create with passion. Most importantly the gorgeous papers, the colours, the word stickers they always seem to help me process my emotions, sometimes very deeply, sometimes sweetly and lightly. This paper brand is the best brand ever for me.

I have a step by step photo tutorial for you of how I created this layout.
Step 1. Brush a thin layer of clear gesso over the paper and let dry.

Step 2. Use heavy white gesso to add the pattern from the stencil.

Step 3. When the first layer is dry, add a second layer with green acrylic paints and the snowflake patterned stencil.

Step 4. Stamp a grungy clear stamp pattern on the paper, using the same green paint.

Step 5. Paint all pieces of chipboard.

Step 6 + 7. Glue down the chipboard and some lace with 3d matte gel.

Step 8. Add your photo and flowers, die cuts, tags, et cetera.

Step 9. Cover your photo and splatter some fluid acrylic white ink on the paper. Add a little sparkle with sequins and loose glitter.

With great pride, I will say goodbye…
With love, Sanderijn
