"Brothers of the Heart" Layout - 7Dots Studio Debut Layout






Hello everyone & Happy Hump Day!
Half way through the week can surely only be a good thing :)


Here is my first page as part of the Design Team for
7Dots Studio.  I used the new Nature Walk Collection.


I used papers, stamps, tags, elements & stickers & flairs from 
this comprehensive collection & strengthened the neutral
 tones into really earthy ones through the use of mists & inks.


Everything co-ordinates so beautifully in this collection that it really is a great
one to use for male layouts, where you can add an injection of whatever 
colour you please, making it very flexible.  You can see it for sale HERE
on the 7Dots Site & purchase directly from them ONLY if there is no
retailer in your country.  Otherwise you can find a list of distributors HERE.


I had quite a lot to say on this one!!  As well as 7Dots Studio products I also used 
stamps & metal embellishments from Prima as well as a CW honeycomb stencil.


I also tucked in plenty of 2Crafty chipboard pieces.  I adore the
dimension that chipboard adds & love that it is so customizable!


I am truly in love with ALL the 7Dots Studio Collections & am soooo
delighted to be a part of their design team now.  Every month they have
a wonderful challenge going on, that you can play along with.  Check
out the latest challenge in the sidebar HERE.
