Maddie & Hazel Layout for 7 Dots Studio

Hello everyone!  I'm happy to be back with a new layout to share - that went live today
 on the 7 Dots Studio blog in this post HERE.  I combined quite a few different
 7 Dots Studio products here, starting with one of my favourite patterned papers
 as my base paper.  'Tolerance' from the Illumination Collection HERE

I began by doing some background work using a stencil from the
Destination Unknown Collection HERE, along with some mists,
 then I started layering up some patterned papers.

I used “Drive All Night” from the Dreamer Collection HERE,
 as well as 'Night’s Fever' from the same collection HERE
 I also used Illumination “Acceptance” HERE

After adhering my photos & title I used Illumination die-cuts to embellish my layout.
See the 6 x 12” elements HERE.  The black zigzag chipboard comes from 7 Dots Studio
too, from one of the chipboard sheets (the negative area that is left after removing all
the chipboard pieces).  I have simply painted it with black & grey paint to recolour it.

To tie all the colours together I used a bronze & gold coloured mists as well as coloured
Staples in gold & a bronze metallic ink pad to edge the die-cuts.  A really simple page
that is quick to create yet effective & cohesive.  I hope I have inspired you today!

Other products used:- Modelling paste, mists, coloured

Your pages are always an inspiration Helen! I love the way you build up layers of texture and colour and it is such a great idea to recolour the chipboard waste like that :o)xxx
