On 4th and 5th May 2012 in the hot and sunny Darwin, Australia I had the experience that will stay in my heart forever. These are “Territory Dreaming” –  mixedmedia and scrapbooking classes made by two brands teamed toghether to make this happen –  7 Dots Studio and our retailer in Australia –  Scrap Matrix. All the event was planned, prepared and organized by the people who are the hearts and souls of these 2 companies: Rae Cooper, the owner of Scrap Matrix with her 2 sweet sisters, Wendy and Angela who made these classes were not only world-class – perfectly prepared in every single detail but also full of good emotions and friendly, supportive atmosphere!
7 Dots Studio was represented by me – Anna Dąbrowska (or just Finnabair) – mixedmedia artist, scrapbooker and journaler who is also 7 DS product designer.  During this 2 days-long event I took care of 34 talented students, who came to darwin from different areas of Australia. Any words can’t describe the amount of emotions and wonderful creative experience I had with this breathtaking group. This time is just unforgettable!
Ladies – thank you again for your trust and faith, your enthusiasm, and great, positive feedback I got from you during this weekend. You made my heart sing!

Here we are toghether:)

And here are some shots done during the classes – we’ve made 2 paper layouts and a handmade journal – all based on our paper collections and a collage on canvas.

Some of the breathtaking projects:
