Maddie & Hazel Layout by Helen Tilbury

Hello everyone – HELEN here with you again today, sharing a new layout.

I combined quite a few different 7 Dots Studio products here, starting with one of my favourite patterned papers as my base paper. “Tolerance” from the Illumination Collection HERE.


I began by doing some background work using a stencil from the Destination Unknown Collection HERE, along with some mists, then I started layering up some patterned papers.

I used “Drive All Night” from the Dreamer Collection HERE, as well as “Night’s Fever” from the same collection HERE. I also used Illumination “Acceptance” HERE.

After adhering my photos & title I used Illumination die-cuts to embellish my layout.

See the 6 x 12” elements HERE. The black zigzag chipboard comes from 7 Dots Studio too, from one of the chipboard sheets (the negative area that is left after removing all the chipboard pieces. I have simply painted it with black & grey paint to recolour it.

To tie all the colours together I used a bronze & gold coloured mists as well as coloured staples in gold & a bronze metallic inkpad to edge the die-cuts. A really simple page that is quick to create yet effective & cohesive. I hope I have inspired you today!
