One more layout for 7 Dots Sudio

Hello! I am back today with my second layout for 7 Dots Studio for August :) 

I have used the just BEAUTIFUL Messy Head collection ! 

Please check out the 7 Dots Studio website HERE 
and please check out the stockists for your country HERE 

 Having 3 girls I am always drawn to using soft colours . But that quickly becomes boring for someone like me.. so every now and then I LOVE adding strong vibrant colours while still keeping the layout feminine . Messy Head is perfect for that. The neutral based papers with a hint of colour through them provide the perfect canvas for anything your heart desires :) 

Once again to get the beautiful texture in my background I have used White Embossing Paste by Wendy Vecchi. This time I used my chipboard as a mask and applied it directly onto the chipboard. Cool effect!

A birthday card for Pom, owner of Prima!

Oh the lady that started all this, Pom Intra, the owner of Prima, has a birthday today! What a great excuse to create a card huh? How many of us drool over the amazing Prima goodies? The flowers, papers, embellishments... How many of us dream of being on this Design Team and how many times have our hearts being shattered? I wonder if all this would be possible without this lady that started it all. So besides happy birthday , a huge THANK YOU to Pom as well :)) 


Check out the rest of the Design Team's birthday cards at the blog today 


I really tried to do a soft a famine card for Pom's birthday but the mixed Art Ingredients were calling my name! I started by applying clear gesso on the base then used the modeling paste and the stencil to add texture before colouring with the Color Bloom Spray.

 I then die cut some leaves and a doily and layered them together with flowers , resin and gauze .

Lastly I diluted some heavy gesso and applied it with my brush over the embellishments and flicked some all over the cover. Happy birthday Pom!!

My debut at 7 Dots Studio :)

How exciting!!! To say I am thrilled to be starting at 7 Dots Studio as a Design Team member is an understatement! I LOVE this manufacturer and I LOVE their papers so much! I have been using them a while and some of my favourite collections EVER are the older collections like the one I have used here called Domestic Goddess.

Please check out the 7 Dots Studio website HERE 
and please check out the stockists for your country HERE 


"LOVE"

I am so excited to start my term at 7Dots Studio with one of my all time favourite collections Domestic Goddess. Of course this collection has nothing to do with my sweet little baby Sofia featured in the photo but I picked it especially because its rustic colours match the colours in the photo perfectly. 


I started by adhering some squares from the 12x12 Tags on the background and overlapping them to create a layer and texture. 

 I have then used a Memory Box stencil on my background together with some embossing paste. 



 I paired some gorgeous gold and black mist to create contrast. 


 And added some stamping with the Prima Square Stitches stamp before adding some more texture with the Prima trim and Prima flowers. 


I used some more 12x12 Tag pieces to mat my photo on .
