Free as a butterfly by Olya Kravets

Hello friends! Today with you Olya Kravets and my inspiration for 7 Dots Studio!
I really love the 7 Dots Studio products and today I want to show you a layout from past collections. I continue to love them and some sheets are unique forever! I really like to cut out the elements, so the sheet “Homegrown – Happy” was perfect for my new idea. Every woman wants to be a beautiful queen but also to remain free for new ideas and realization. The most important thing is to keep the opportunity to spread your wings and be as light as a butterfly!

I used my favorite stencil “Writer’s Block – Letters”, and also drew a constellation to create a background. I added Element Stickers from Lost and Found collection, some more lace and flowers and of course butterflies.

Thank you for stopping by. I want to wish you to be free creatively, to realize yourself and be really happy with favorite work!
A lot of inspiration and a great day!

Open door by Sanderijn de Bruin-Mittendorff

I have created a page which has a deeper meaning. It’s about the open door in the picture. It’s symbolic for the opportunity to see, in every situation, the ability to be free, to follow a new path, reach for the stars, and spread your wings…

I used a lot of birds because in the layout, to make it symbolic for ‘flying through the open door’. So I hope everybody remembers, they always have a choice in life, to open a new door, a new path, and to search for their own (inner) freedom…

The background is created with a layer of clear gesso, several layers of different stencil patterns, added with gesso. I splattered some golden watercolour paints too. I build up my page with cheese cloth, lace, tags, art stones, chipboard pieces, stamped flowers, 3D flowers and word stickers.

Be Grateful by Juliya Tirskaya

Hello! It’s Juliya and I am very pleased to present my first project for 7 Dots Studio. Today I want to show you my newest album, made with the amazing Hazy Days collection. The album is called “Be Grateful”. It’s about achievements and faith

The album has 4 spreads and only 8 photos. And I even looked at the film about Ali. With Will Smith. The first thought – He’s so bold! Followed by  a mix of emotions.

I wanted to capture at least a quarter of his self-confidence, strength and thirst for victory.

The second spread. Here I used some Writers Block collection papers. I had cut those sheets and was going to use them some other mini-album but they perfectly complemented this album.

The tag is pulled out. In the album there are two of them.

The third spread. On it, I decided that I would definitely make another album like that. Maybe a mini, or maybe a smaller one.

And the last one. I applied a Clear Gesso on all the pages first. Then paste through the stencils. Then the layers of paper and decor. And only in the end I added stains of paint and tinting with wax. Stamps from this collection have completed the work.

In conclusion, I want to say that it was a pleasure to work with the Hazy Days collection! And I hope that my album will inspire you to play with the papers from this collection. It’s incredible!
