Walk on the wild side - 7 Dots Studio July Challenge

Good morning everyone!

We have a new challenge up in the 7 Dots Studio Blog for you today!
Its theme is ANIMALS (very very cute, isn't it?)!


This is the inspirational circle


and my page





My page features one of my favourite animals, the raccoon. Mischievous and a trouble though it can be, I find it adorable!  I have combined the Nature Walk Collection with the Love is in the air - I think the blue/green combo is just perfect for my photo! 

Products used:

UWS - Destination Unknown Netting Stencil

I hope you will play with the challenge! We are always happy to see your projects in the 7 Dots blog!
Thank you for stopping by!

Priceless keepsakes - 7 Dots Studio

Hello again!

I was given an old photo by my husband. It must be at least 60 years old and it is a photo of the children of the orphanage my father-in-law was staying at after the WW2 and the Civil War that followed. So it is really precious for him.Then I thought that my father-in-law would appreciate something made with this photo more than my husband.  So I thought to create a layout that they would frame and hang at some point in their home.
 
This is what I came up with
 

 
 
 
The perfect collection for this type of layout is, undoubtedly, the "Cold Country".  And this is what I used, not trying something new, but just layering and adding texture in the form of flakes, modelling paste, gesso and some embellishments.  More details you can see at the 7 Dots Studio blog!

The journey

Good morning, my friends.
7 Dots Studio DT is guest designing team for Scrap Around the World this month and I would like to show you my own take on the lovely challenge!

A modern, colourful moodboard could only inspire me to create a similar page!  I have used 4 of the photos of the moodboard!  Stylewise I have been trying new things lately, with the purpose of refreshing my style, so in this layout I have used lots of 13 Arts Acrylic Paints (colours in thick form).  The drops of paint on the background create the impression of lightness and happiness.  




7 Dots Studio products used:  Illumination - BalanceIllumination - Word Stickers 6x12Illumination - Die-cut Tags 12x12Illumination - Die-cut Elements 6x12Soulmates - Squares Mask

The amazing moodboard is this



That's all from me now! I hope you have a great day!
