November Challenge: Favourite Animal or Pet

Animals, humans faithful companions, pets and best friends. Not only do they bring joy into our lives but are magnificent creatures. That’s why this month we want you to capture the beauty of your favourite animals or pets in your projects. So, get busy scrapping and share with us your animal friends.

 

Here is the inspiration from our team:

Hello everyone! This month we have such a good challenge which gives so many possibilities to create! I was inspired by this photo and it`s colour pallet. Green and red – such a beautiful combo! I was using Dreamscapes paper collection and tags. My main paper sheet for background is Chestnuts from Yuletide paper collection and word stickers from Fortune-teller. Wish you a lot of inspiration, Nadya.

 

For our cute challenge, the animals were chosen by my daughter. She is very fond of foxes and cats. And it’s a layout for her! I really wanted to do something sweet and natural. I like to use the “Dreamscapes” collection for forest projects. It always inspires me! I hope you also love this collection, like me!

 

On this challenge I took a photograph of the cat. There are two cats in my house who like to turn the house upside down. And on the page I collected their favourite toys: a bell, coils of wool and paper. They just adore paper! Our sweet cats.

 

This layout is about our new pug puppy Lucy, who has recently joined our family. She is so tiny and cute and is our little princess. She will be a very pampered pup. I have used a mix of the Hazy Days and Homegrown collections for this layout. I have also used some of the Dreamscapes stamps.

 

I love the different animals: cats, dogs, and raccoons… as a child I always asked my mom to get a kitten, but she didn’t allow one. And then when I got married, my husband once brought a cat! It was a tiny red lump that couldn’t even feed himself. I fed him milk from a pipette, and cared for him like a child. Now I live with three cats and a big German shepherd. With great pleasure I would get another dog and a couple cats, but now my husband doesn’t allow that :)

 

For November’s Challenge Louise has created a Tag showcasing a photo of her fave four legged friend, ‘Finn’, [a friends dog]. He is a bit of a ratbag but totally loveable!!! :)

 

I created a layout featuring our cute dog Cookie. He is not only cute but his fur is white as snow so I thought it would be perfect to create a layout full of snowflakes that match his fur. I used the Verano Azul collection for the background as well as some of the tags. I framed the photo in the Hazy days chipboard frame and used some of the chipboard stars to decorate.

 

When I heard about the theme of this challenge, I immediately thought about Butterflies! I think butterflies are the most gracious animal, aren’t they? So I decided to create a special mixed media canvas for this challenge. I used crackle paint and modeling paste through 7 DOTS STUDIO stencil for the background and added different layers with Fortune-teller‘s tags, Die-cuts and stickers from different collections. The words stickers are from the new collection Nothern Lights.

 

My favourite animal is my dog, Mister Cookie (Monsieur Biscuit in French). It is my most faithful companion. I use the Dreamscapes collection to make my layout. This collection is so versatile that you can use it for a very soft creation as much as something more striking. And you? what is your favourite animal?

Wooden Cameras by Keren Tamir

Hi Everyone,
It’s Keren here back on the 7 Dots Studio Blog. Today I created a set of grungy ATCs using both the Dreamscapes and Hazy Days collection. I love the film theme of the Hazy days collection and so I wanted to incorporate that in my cards. I used the UmWow Studio flairs and some wooden cameras to match the theme. I love trading ATCs with people from around the world and collecting their art. It’s always nice to have a piece of someone’s art in your collection.






I have a video tutorial below on how I created these ATCs

Thank you so much for visiting the 7 Dots Studio Blog have a wonderful day!!

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.



You can see my set by step process video below:
