Guest Designer – Fran Westmoreland

I’m Fran (short for Francine) Westmoreland and I reside Derbyshire, England. I have loved anything creative or artistic since I was very young and started card making in 2006, which eventually led to scrapbooking and mixed media. I love playing around with ideas and trying them out, for me it’s the best part of the creative process.

I created this layout using paper along with elements from the Thoughts Keeper and Soulmates collections, pulling out the soft pink and aqua hues.



I started by adding some old peel off flower stickers onto the 12×12 paper then I applied a coat of gesso with an old gift card over the paper.


Adding Ecoline inks (pink and grey) over the gesso area to add colour then some texture with 3D paste and stencil which I highlighted with a dark pencil.

The tags and sticker elements have been used to embellish around the photo along with denim and paper flowers.Supplies from 7 Dots Studio:
