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
