Hi again everyone! I'm back again today with a new layout for 7 Dots Studio,
up on their blog today HERE. I had an absolute blast creating this layout
using the Illumination Collection. I love how it turned out with the
black & white photos & the black & white ink splashes!
I love that all the 7 Dots Studio Collections have such great words of wisdom
to go along with them. The papers, stickers & die-cuts are full of sayings
& sentiments that make these collections so versatile!
It makes creating SO simple because everything you need comes with
the collection & creating then becomes a breeze! All you need is to
add some mixed media products & texture & you are done!!
I love to add thread to my projects as it adds just the right amount of texture
& movement without creating a lot of bulk. I'm also a great believer in
adding hand journaling as a finishing touch to your work, to personalise it.
As well as the ink splashes I added some light stenciling, some inking & also
some tearing, which is another technique that never goes out of fashion.
I layered up several patterned papers, distressing & inking up the edges
as I went along, whilst tucking in some die-cuts & adding some
as embellishments on top too.
Using staples is a good way to keep the thread in place whilst
also adding a funky, modern look to your page at the same time.
