"Create, Live, Learn" Canvas - 7 Dots Studio
Domestic Goddess Collection






It's round!  Isn't that fun?!?  Finally I found a circular canvas & thought I would 
give it a go!!  This was a lot of fun for me!  I was trying to create in the 
style of Finnabair, but I definitely have to practice some more LOL.  


I used the beautiful “Domestic Goddess” Collection.  I am loving re-using 
this collection at the moment!  It is so classic & elegant.  See it HERE.  
You can also see this post up on the 7 Dots Studio blog HERE.


I had a lot of fun with mists & sprays, microbeads, metals, etc but of course the
 “stars”of the show are the tags from the Domestic Goddess Collection HERE.  


They are the only 7 Dots Studio product I have used on the canvas but I have 
used many of them – 12 altogether – one dozen – & I simply LOVE the look 
of them all layered up together. The colours, sentiments & illustrations are great!



I inked up all the edges of the tags using my bronze Tsukineko inkpad
& I sprayed my entire piece with the clear spray paint in my first {main}
image – which works wonderfully to seal the canvas, keep all the elements
 in place, & also hold every tiny micro-bead exactly where I placed each one.


So you see…there is always something you can do with your 7 Dots Studio
Stash – even if you have only one sheet!  Every page is so versatile!!


What a beautiful collection don't you think?  The colours are so warm & inviting!!


I hope that I have inspired you to try something different today!
To not be afraid of doing something “outside of your comfort zone”
But to play & experiment with your 7 Dots Papers! 
Have you tried out a round/circular canvas yet?!

Helen,
Your circular canvas is amazing!! I love the 7 Dots set of tags you used - they are so very cool. The colors, textures and bits and pieces all add up to one beautiful (yet way cool) canvas.
