'Awesome Weekend' Layout & Tutorial for 7 Dots Studio








I created this layout based on my layout of last month that used the same steps,
 but this time it was for a Photo Tutorial for the 7 Dots Studio blog, so it ended up
 far too busy as I wanted to make sure that each step was really clear & obvious.

  Not to worry though, it is relatively flat despite all the detail & I do enjoy this
 method of creating.  It really is very easy with a central photo with details
 all around.  So please forgive me for the overkill & enjoy the tutorial 
coming up tomorrow!


I got great feedback on the layout above last month so based my tutorial 
on the same method of creation, but today am just sharing the layout
 first & the tutorial will be coming tomorrow. 


I'm in love with microbeads right now & am happily scattering them everywhere!


I used 7 Dots Studio Nature Walk Collection for this layout & must say it is a very
 versatile collection that I have used to death over the last 6 months - enduring love!!


The flowers & bling are Prima of course & the self-adhesive frames may be recognised
 by some as the rather old Making Memories ones that were the perfect colours 
for this layout.  YAY to stash raiding!!


I'm mad for ombre embossing right now which is a very freestyle embossing method I came up with while designing for Lindy's Stamp Gang.  I used 3 different colours of EPs here.  


I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my November 7 Dots Creation!  It is indeed rather
 over-the-top full of detail but it was a joy to create & sometimes we all need that 
creative release even if the results are somewhat overwhelming!!
