Remember....7Dots Studios

Hi everyone! I made this page using the pretty Soulmates collection by 7Dots Studios. I started my page cutting two pieces of the "Not about labels" and the "Maybe Today"papers in "V" shape.  I applied a coat of gesso and  painted with Chalkboard paint in "sand" color then to give textures I added molding paste with he damask stencil by the same Soulmates collection.

The image is a card- "Found Relatives" by Tim Holtz. I used the Soulmates chipboards and die-cuts elements.

I stamped with the clear stamps by Soulmates collection.   I also used the stitched stamp by Prima.

Flowers, lace, molding paste, gesso and paint by Prima Marketing.

7Dots Studios supplies:  Soulmates collection: "Not about Labels", "Maybe Today",  Sensuality", chipboard, die-cut elements, damask mask,

The March Limited Edition kit is a GORGEOUS kit one of my favorites so far, it is featuring Love Story collection and chipboard by Blue Fern. Like always the LE  kit comes with lot of beautiful embellishments, flowers by Petaloo and Prima Marketing and I share you now what I did with it...
"SMILE"
My first page is about my dear daughter Paola and her "selfie". I mixed three different papers and played with the beautiful flowers, brads, chipboards from the kit. I made a video tutorial of this page. 

I made some fussy cutting with two of the papers and painted the Blue Fern chipboards with black Chalkboard paint by Prima.

The kit includes resins words and I used one for my title "Smile".

I cut out the picture frame from one of the paper...


2- MEMORIES
My second page is about my lovely niece Azalia in her graduation. I mixed "Love Story" by Blue Fern papers with the "Garment District" collection by Marion Smith in this page.  

I made the brick effect with a Prima stencil and molding paste and cut out these tags from  the Garment District papers.

I embossed the chipboards...




3- A CANVAS
I was inspired by  Coco Chanel's quote to create this canvas. And again I mixed paper from Blue Fern and Marion Smith with stencils, molding paste, mediums, Color Blooms and acrylic paints.

This pretty trimming comes in the kit.

Flowers and brads from Prima Marketing.

17th...7Dots Studios

Hello ! My daughter turned 17 years old two weeks ago, it's incredible how time flies. I made this page using two of the new 7Dots Studios collection: Thoughts Keeper and Soulmates. These collections have beautiful stamps and stencils that I worked with them to make my background work.  I also used the 6 x 6 paper pad, sometimes we only need a piece of a specific paper and we don't want to cut a 12 x 12 paper only for a small piece and I think that the mini paper pads are perfect to complement our projects, too.

I created textures with the Damask stencil from the Soulmates collection and art basics-Molding paste by Prima Marketing.  I stamped to add contrast with the beautiful Thoughts Keepers' stamp .

I added the 17th to a tag from the Soulmates collection  to create my title.

I added some die cuts to accent my page and Glass beads-Finnabair art ingredients, also pretty Prima flowers.

You can see these beautiful 7Dots collections...HERE

This is You...

Happy San Valentine's Day!  Here's a DT project that I made for 2Crafty Chipboard using their wonderful chippies. I worked with the beautiful Epiphany collection by Prima Marketing. I started to create this page making a design with the negative from the Scallop Circle Frame Borders that I painted with acrylic yellow paint.  I have used 2 different sizes, one behind the photo and another behind the title.

The Tree with Sparrow chippie goes perfect with this paper design so I painted it with acrylic paints and the added some stamping on the leaves. I painted the background with Color Blooms- Sunshine  then I added textures with a stencil and art basics- molding paste.


I coated my tittle "This is You" with gesso and acrylic paint then I stamped it and applied white paint in some areas to create light and contrast.

Supplies list:
2Crafty Chipboards

Prima Marketing:
Epiphany collection,art basics: gesso, molding paste,Color Blooms- sunshine
Stencil- checkers, Lace, flowers

Until Next time!
