Just Imagine by Nathalie Dalibard

Hello, it’s my turn on the blog today and I want to share a new layout ! Here I mixed some old collections papers. I have used two of my favourite collections : Cotton Candy Dream and Writer’s Block. I love these collections so much!!

Watch my video tutorial above to see how I created this :

Follow Your Dreams by Lisa Amiet

Follow Your Dreams was created with the inspiration of telling my daughter to follow her heart. I want her to dream, hope and imagine what life can be. The Dreamscapes collection was perfect for this layout, it had all the elements I was looking for.

I wanted to keep the layout quite feminine and decided to pull up all the pink tones in this collection to create the colour scheme I wanted to use, which I mixed with the grey and black from the papers and embellishments. I used the Geometry stencil and some splashing to create my background. Then it was a matter of distressing my papers and elements and pulling my layers together.

I love having lots of layers to build up my layout and as you can see from my video tutorial, I build them up and then stick them down from the top to the bottom. Some say its a strange way but it works for me!

I hope you enjoy the video. Thanks for stopping by!

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
