Forgotten Treasure by Karine Gagnon

Dear crafty friends,
It’s my turn today to share some 7 Dots Studio love! I was inspired by the gorgeous moodboard of Mixed Media and Art. When I looked at the moodboard, I immediately thought of the Lost and Found collection! It was one of my all time favourites! So I grabbed the few papers that I have left and I created this piece, inspired by the colours, of course, but also by the threes and by the nature.


My background paper is called Stained (Lost and Found collection). I covered it with clear gesso and created a mixed media background over it. To create my background, I used two stencils: Dreamscapes – Geometry Stencil and Hazy Days – Chevron Stencil. I created two main clusters on my layout. Both of them sit on the Typewriter paper (Lost and Found collection).



I also used the Sticky Notes paper (Lost and Found collection) and the Lost and Found – Tags 12×12 in my clusters. I added texture here and there with stamps: Thoughts Keeper – Clear Stamps, Hazy Days – Clear Stamps and Dreamscapes – Clear Stamps. I used the Lost and Found – Die-cut Element 6×12 and the Lost and Found – Word Stickers 6×12 here and there in my clusters.



I really hope you like the results. I created a process video for you to see. I hope you enjoy it.

Have a great day.
Karine xx

Falling Star by Karine Gagnon

Dear crafty friends, Karine is here with you today to share a layout created with the beautiful Dreamscapes collection.

I started my layout with the Dreamscapes – Twinkle paper on which I created a mixed media background with inks.

On my background, I used the Hazy Days – Clear Stamps with black archival ink to add interest.

I like adding tiny bits and pieces amongst my embellishments clusters. Here, I used a circle from the Dreamscapes – Die-cut Elements 6×12 to go with the circle shape of my flowers and badges.

Behind my picture, I used a few papers from the Dreamscapes – Pad 6×6. Those 6×6 paper pads are fantastic when I have to create a mat behind my picture or to add dimension on any layout. I also used a circle sticker from the Dreamscapes – Element Stickers 6×12.

My layout wouldn’t be complete without a tag or two. I used, of course, the Dreamscapes – Tags 12×12.

For my title, I choose those two stickers from the Dreamscapes – Word Stickers 6×12, as I found the saying so beautiful.

Today’s Moments by Karine Gagnon

Dear crafty friends,
Karine is here today to share another layout with the gorgeous Hazy Days collection. I really can’t get enough of this collection with it’s grungy feel and those colors!
I started my layout with the beautiful Twilight paper from the Hazy Days collection. I just love the blue and the yellow tones on that paper.

Those colors were the start up point of my layout. After a coat of clear gesso, I chose different colors of mists to go with the colors in the background.

Next, I used the Chevron stencil, also from the Hazy Days collection, to add brown paste. I love the contrast I got.

To mat my picture, I used papers from the Hazy Days 6×6 paper pad and some tags from the Hazy Days 12×12 Tags. I love how you can mix and match papers and tags in a cluster to create something dynamic!

I used some of the Die-cut Elements 6×12 and Elements Stickers 6×12 here and there around my layout. Those little pieces add so much to any project.

Adding finishing touches with the Word Stickers 6×12.

I hope you like my layout. Have a nice crafty day.
Karine xx
