Behind the dust cover by Nadya Drozdova

Hello everyone! Here is Nadya again sharing with you my project. This time I made canvas using one of my favourite paper collections “Writer`s Block”. I love it for monochrome, rich and calm tones. I also used quote stickers from this collection. I was inspired by Dusty Attic mood board and also used their chippies. I added some Finnabair art ingredients and Prima flowers.

Wish you a lot of inspirations!
Hugs, Nadya Drozdova

Capture Each Moment by Karine Gagnon

My dear crafty friends,
I hope this day finds you well. I’m here today to share my latest layout featuring the Hazy Days collection.

I started out with the Zip 12×12 paper from the Hazy Days collection. I primed it with clear gesso first.
I then created a mixed media background using Writer’s Block – Letters Stencil and some brown Rust Paste. When everything was dry, I selected a few inks and added color to the bottom part of my layout. I also used brown and black ink to stamp some patterns with the Hazy Days – Clear Stamps and Dreamscapes – Clear Stamps.

I also used some papers from the Hazy Days – Pad 6×6, some Hazy Days – Tags 12×12 and some Hazy Days – Die-cut Elements 6×12 here and there around my picture, and a flair from the Hazy Days – Click Click Flair. I also used the Hazy Days – Word Stickers 6×12. Those words are just perfect for this layout featuring my parents with my kids.

An ode to triangle by Riikka Kovasin

Hello there 7 Dots Studio fans! It’s Riikka here today with two projects. I again drew the inspiration for these pieces not only from the wonderful 7 Dots Studio products but the theme of the latest challenge theme “Historical figure”.

There’s plenty of historical figures I could have used. When thinking about the theme, a problem developed – I had too many figures to choose from! My love for the Finnish band Turisas led me to Vikings, my adoration to 18th century fashion to Madame Pompadour and so forth. So I took the easy way out and asked my husband to name a historical figure. The first one he suggested was Pythagoras. Pythagoras = a^2+b^2=c^2 = triangles! And as the chipboard sheet of “Dreamscapes” is full of triangles, I had my theme. I made two projects celebrating this lovely shape and the mathematical formula of right triangle, the Pythagorean Theorem.

The first project is an art journal page celebrating the triangle. The earthy tones of the Dreamscapes turned into rusty ones in my mind and I used tea coloured watercolour, earthy inks and rust paste in my make. The background is done using several pieces of patterned papers I had in my stash. I love how the collections are so easy to mix and I love to mix different patterns in my projects.

My other project is a set of ATCs. There’s three cards, like the sides or points in a triangle. And there’s letters a, b and c, representing the letters in the theorem. The cards have a lot of the same elements as the journal page, like the rust paste.

Thank you for stopping by today! And don’t forget to participate to the challenge! Ta ta for now!
Xoxo Riikka
