Just Do It Layout - 7 Dots Studio
- Guest Designing at Sketchabilities

Hi!  So 7 Dots Studio were invited this month to Guest Design over at 
Sketchabilities HERE.  As you all know the sketches there are awesome.

I used papers, die-cuts, stickers & tags from the Thoughts Keeper Collection
HERE for this layout, together with the BEAUTIFUL Soulmates stencil HERE.  

I love the neutral tones of this collection & at the moment I'm loving bronze
 inking. I also added some bronze metallic thread behind my elements.

I used gesso to mute out some of the background together with some 13arts Splash!
 ink in black & white.  These inks are thick & opaque which I REALLY like. 

For the stenciling I used some black granite paste from Liquitex that is
 really fine & gritty, along with my bronze inkpad again.

The Scrabble alphas are part of the Thoughts Keeper Collection & come as a sheet 
of paper that needs to be hand-cut.  I love the look of the letters juxtaposed
 against one another with a few shiny black staples thrown into the mix!
