Hello Everyone! Time for a new challenge at 7 Dots Studio!! This time the theme is
FRAME IT & you can interpret this any way you like. Although I did not add any
'literal' frames to my project I kept the theme in mind the whole time I was
creating & tried to 'frame' my photos within the centre of my page, using
stamps, drywall tape, stickers & die-cut elements.
I used white cardstock as my base, which I love to do, but often don't because,
crazy fact, white cardstock is THE most difficult to get hold of here in South
Africa :/ The photos are several years old & depict my son & his then best
friend, graffitiing our back wall. My son went through a phase where he
loved graffiti art so of course I encouraged it & gave him his own wall!
I used elements from the Illumination Collection HERE as they are black & match
with everything! I used stickers from the Soulmates Collection HERE because
they are a neutral stone colour so also great to match with many colourways!
I used Tsukineko Liquid Black ink because it is very dark & matt so very striking!
I used stamps from various 7 Dots Studio Collections as their stamps are really
awesome! I used the text stamp from the Soulmates Collection HERE
because text stamps ALWAYS grab my attention - I just LOVE them -
& they kind of go with the graffiti/self-expression theme.
I also used some background stamps from the Illumination Collection HERE
& I also added a lovely big flair from the Destination Unknown Collection
HERE. Apart from 7 Dots Studio Elements & ink splats I also added
some dry wall tape, staples & some pre-misted cardstock.
I'm preferring flatter layouts generally these days so haven't added
any bulky embellishments. I also hand-journalled the story on some
more pre-misted cardstock (I keep it when I'm testing my mist colours!)
I hope that you will join in the challenge by entering ANY project using at least
ONE 7 Dots Studio product. There is always one great prize for the merit winner!
You can view all the 7 Dots Studio products on their website HERE & order directly
from them or one of their retailers, for example The Flying Unicorn in the USA.
Thanks so much for your visit today!
