'Brothers Always' Layout - 7 Dots Studio





You can find my 3 Christmas Giveaways HERE.


Hi again!  Here is my 7 Dots Studio project for October.
I used the Cold Country Collection which is one of my favourites.
{along with many other 7 Dots Collections LOL!}


I started by gessoing over my base paper using a credit card then I used an 
UmWow Studio Brick Wall Mask with thick modeling paste on the background
 & sprinkled over it whilst still wet, using 2 colours of embossing powders.


I used many different elements from the Cold Country Collection for my layers,
from the elements stickers, word stickers & die-cuts, all of which you can find HERE.


I used alphabet & word stickers from a previous collection, 'All I Ever'.


I also used Cold Country stamps too. {3 out of 4 of them}.

clear stamps

As well as some 'negative' pieces of chipboard from the Illumination Collection.


I really enjoyed myself on this one, especially with the Gentlemen images!


You can visit the blog HERE if you want to know anymore details.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
