A Fall page...7Dots Studio

Hello everyone!!  Today I share with you this fall page that I made with the Dreamer collection by 7Dots Studios. Here in North Carolina everything is turning into the beautiful fall colors.  The trees are in different shades of orange, burgundy and yellow colors...it really looks amazing!
And my page is inspired in the pretty colors of Autumn. I use the Daydreaming and Sleepless papers from the Dreamer collection in my page.
I played with paints, gelatos, color blooms and some mediums in my page.

I used like my title a tag from the Illumination collection (tags 12 x 12).

I also layered my photo with some tags from Illumination collection. I added this pretty lace from Tresor de Luxe.

I used a Memory Box stencil with Molding Paste(Art Basics by Prima) and a border punch from Martha Steward.

I added these pretty flowers and wood frames by Prima Marketing.  The pin is from Michaels.

Finally, the sun came here and I took this other picture to my page and the colors looks better.  Incredible what a littler of sun light can does....

7Dots Supplies:  Cold Country- clear stamp,  Dreamer- Sleepless and Daydreaming papers,  Illumination- Die cut tag and chipboard
     Prima Marketing:  Art Basics- heavy gesso, modeling paste, Color Blooms-sunshine, 
                                  Tea stain, De Soie Col Bistro flowers, Avante Cedar flowers, wood                                        pieces,.
      Tresor De Luxe:   Lace
      Martha Steward-   Border punch
                    other:      acrylic paints, waxed cord, pearls, corrugated board


Thank for stopping by...until next time!!!
