Memories- 7 Dots Studio

Hello! I share with you today a page that I made using different 7 Dots Studio collection. I found this photo when my son Xander was baptized 20 years ago. I always enjoy to see old photos, it is like make  a movie in my mind, how many lovely memories to treasure... I selected as my base paper "Lovely Evenings" by Cold Country collection, I love the design and colors in this paper.  One of the good things about 7 Dots products is that you can combined collections and the colors blend perfectly. 

I gave textures with art basics- molding paste by Prima and two masks: one from Soulmates-"Damask" and the other from Destination Unknown collection.

The pretty chipboards are from the Illumination collection. I stamped the hearts from the clear stamp-Thoughts Keepers collection in the "Maybe Today" paper and then I cut out the hearts and used it to embellish my flower cluster. 

I randomly stamped around my page with the clear stamp by "Thought Keepers" 

Finally, I added some die cut elements from the Soulmates collection.

7Dots supplies list:
Lonely Evening- Cold Country, Maybe Today paper/ Damask-mask/ Die cuts Elements- Soulmates collection,  Illumination-chipboards, Thoughts Keepers- clear stamp, Destination Unknown mask

Prima Marketing:
art basics- gesso, molding paste, matte gel/ art ingredients-silver micro-beads, glass beads/ flowers/ leaves/ chalkboard paint-sea breeze

Bloom & Grow- 2Crafty ChipboardsI

Hi! I hope you are good!  Here is a page about my daughter Pao when she was 1 1/2 years old and she loved to play under the table, how sweet...
I made this page using the new releases chippies by 2Crafty Chipboards, they are so gorgeous!  I gave a coat of gesso to all my chipboards and while the gesso is still wet I applied white embossing power and after dry, it gives a cool sand effect to the chippies....love it!
I worked with the Thoughts Keepers collection by 7Dots Studios.
I framed my photo with the new Doddle Frames and added one of the balloons from the Mini Hot Air Balloons for a pretty detail to my page.

I love the new Bubble Clumps chippies and added around my photos and flowers.

My title is the Bloom & Grow chippie that I gave the sand effect with embossing power and gesso. I used Prima Marketing art basics: molding paste, gesso, soft matte gel, Color Blooms and flowers.

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.
