7 Dots Studio Guest Designing for Scrap 365!
Heart of Gold Layout

Well isn't that an interesting combination for you?  
We at 7 Dots Studio are delighted to be guesting for Scrap 365!  
You can see the post there HERE.
Yup a SKETCH challenge!  Not something I do a lot of these
days but it was FUN & I do enjoy it as a good starting point!

This layout just flowed for me & was done very quickly.  
It was more about delivering a message to my daughter for
 this layout than it was about showing off different techniques.  

I used the 2014 Collection ''Nature Walk"for this page, using several of the
 papers as well as the tags, along with some 7 Dots Stamps & chipboard,
7 Dots alphas & a beautiful Um Wow Studio flair & their miniature brick mask.

As Scrap 365 prefers a cleaner look I kept everything soft & light :)

I won't lie...all the hand-journaling was daunting as I always add that right
 at the end but I managed to get through it all without too many blips!!

I bought a bunch of these intricate gold doilies on Etsy & they are an absolute
 staple for me.  Too Glorious!!   Thanks for popping in on me today xo
