Today I would like to share with you a quick and fun embellishment technique. The wire ladder like embellishment was created to emulate the graphic on the 12 x 12 patterned paper Under the Covers.

This step out is quick and simple and not as fiddley as it looks :)

STEP-BY-STEP

  • Begin by cutting 4 long pieces of wire to be the side rails of the ladder, and multiple shorter pieces for the across rails [approx. 12 cms long].
  • Rake one long wire and begin twisting around the shorter wires all the way along the long wire as depicted below. Create as many across rails as you would like.

  • Take a second long piece to form the other long side rail, and twist the shot pieces around it to form a ladder.
  • Take a third long piece and align it along the left side rail; to hold it in place I positioned it over and under every alternate short across wire.
  • To hold it in place I added a second short across piece of wire in the middle and twisted it around both of the left long side wires.
  • Repeat this for the right hand side of the ladder, and hold it in place with second short across wires at the top and bottom.

  • Add extra short across wires to create the ladder look.
  • Reposition the wires so it starts to look more like a ladder.
  • When you are happy with the shape, adhere it to layout background paper with staples.

  • This image shows the wire embellishment attached to the page, before final embellishing.

  • Next up are 2 close ups of the completed layout.


Cheers for now and I do hope you enjoyed this quick and easy lil wire embellishment step-out.

Find your strength by Sandra Bernard

Hi gang!…here in Canada (and others countries of course), November is one rather grey month, no more leafs in the trees, cold temperatures… We are awaiting the white carpet to cover the landscape. It is in this mood that I created my page with, as main subject, a good comforting cup of coffee.

I used small squares from different collections as well as squares from fabrics for the background. I covered everything with medium gel so that paper doesn’t absorb ink that I added to look like coffee spots.


I then gathered different tags and pieces of papers of the various collections to put under my pictures. Then i have added some flowers, dots, badge, tags and die cuts elements from 7 Dots studio as a final touch.


I hope that you will like my small video, do not bother you to ask your questions and demonstrate your appreciations.

thanks a lot

Beautiful Story by Keren Tamir

Hi Everyone,
It’s Keren here for the 7 Dots Studio blog. I created a mixed media altered canvas using the 6×6 paper pads from the Hazy Days and Dreamscapes collections. I used several mixed media products to create the texture on this canvas. I created a firefly shaker element in the centre using an old mason jar lid some beads and sequin. I used an UmWow Flair in the middle of the shaker.

Thank you so much for visiting the 7 Dots Studio blog
Have a wonderful day!!
