Pets on Parade - Scrap FX Design Team

I´m here today to share my two late July projects for Scap FX . They are totally different - one is a layout and the other a Art Journal page. I have been working with the Wolf & Tiger Silhouettes, the Zoo Theme Pack & the Pets on parade wordlet.

The layout is based on a 12x12 Night Sky patterned paper from 7 Dots Studio Desination Unknown Collection. I added Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (Chartreus, Limeade, Chocholate Covered Strawberries, Dragonfly), stamping and layers of decorations to add dimension.

The Elephant text from the Zoo Theme Pack works really well with the picture my partner took a couple of years ago when two Elephants ran away from the circus and found their way into the main road trough our village. I highlighted both the Elephant text and the Pets on parade wordlet with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze Icicle.

Now to my second project. This is totally different. I made a arty Art Journal page with a lot of texture using the two new animal silhouettes. By applying texture paste trough the silhouettes I created "pictures" with dept. I have used the same Tattered Angels Products for this. The arrow and sentiment stickers comes from 7Dots Studio Destination Unknown Collection as well.

Free Spirit - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

Happy Thursday everyone! I´m glad to be here with my first post as a part of the 7 Dots Studio Design Team.

I have been working with the Fortune Teller Collection making this layout that I believe represent ME in so many ways. It´s a bit grungy, it´s a bit rugged, very colorful and a bit messed up. Perfectly imperfect might be the right description. Just like me....

The background work is really the easiest one possible, the Fortune 12x12 paper works great as background. I just covered the page with clear gesso and then splattered on Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists (Marmelade, Red Chilies, Dragonfly), Glimmer Glam (Turquoise) and Glimmer Glaze (Desert Sun). The gesso prevent the ink from being absorbed by the paper and the color & shimmer  don´t dissaper as much.

To add extra interest I used a white pencil to draw rectangles (using a candy box as template...), white splatters of ink gives an extra crispy touch. I also stamped with white High Impact paint (Tattered Angels) and the Hand stamp from the Fortune Teller stamp set.

I added dimension to my page by layering different pieces of paper, die cuts and stickers. A stamped feather (also from the Fortune Teller stamp set) make a cool focal point.

Thank you for your visit today!

I have used products from 7 Dots Studio & Tattered Angels.

Quote Card - 7 Dots Studio Design Team

A new challenge from 7 Dots Studio is here - you can see all the beautiful inspiration by the Design Team here. This time the theme is "Favorite Quote". The rules are simple as always - you need to create a project inspired by the theme using at least one 7 Dots Studio product. Then when blogging your creation you just need to add the inspirational wheel in the post and add your link to the linky tool. You have until August 19th participate.

I often use quotes on my cards. I believe a well picked quote make the card more personal. This one was made by using the Homegrown Collection as the main source of supplies.

 I simply layered pieces of papers from the 6x6 paper pad on a cardstock base. To add extra interest I used the star stamp from the Homegrown clear stamp set together with beige embossing powder. 

The quote was stamped on a tag (also from the Homegrown collection). The card is a gift for one of my Colleagues. Even though we can have a pretty rough time at work, he always has time to fool around and make us smile.

Moments - Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew

7gypsies has been a part of my scrapbooking journey since the beginning. I remember the first thing I bought was a kit from a kit club that contained 7gypsies papers. Back then 7gypsies was not that common in Sweden and was really hard to get hold of, but whenever I found a piece I bought it. Nowadays I use the products on almost all my scrapbooking projects. I love the papers and the metal embellishments. Everything is really good quality and extremely usable.

Today I want to show you a mixed media style layout I made with papers from the Maritime, Harmony & Gypsy Moments Collections. The best thing about 7gypsies is that all the collections work so well together!

I have used a Maritime 12×12 paper as my background. I splattered Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Gold and Baseboard Mist Coal over the patterned paper to add more interest. After it was dry I layered torn papers from the Harmony 6×6 paper pad and stamped over them with the Distressed Words Wood Stamp.

Small pieces of papers can really turn your project into something special. I have used 7gypsies Travel Tickets and a cut out from thePoses & Reflections paper (Gypsy Moments Collection) on my layout. A small metal heart and small metal studs help to draw the eye. A couple of sweet flowers and a flair from UmWow Studio finish off the layout.

encourage you to explore the vintage awesomeness of 7gypsies products!!!

Sea Story - Words & Paintery Creative Team

It is time for a new challenge at the Words & Paintery Blog. This month our moodboard remind us of sandy beaches and water melons. 

I have used a patterned paper from Canvas Home Basics as my base. To tone down the chocolate brown I painted it with watered down gesso. I then splattered on different Tattered Angels mediums - Mists, Glaze and High Impact paint.

Don´t you just love the quote card from 7gypsies? The best thing is that there is a whole 12x12 filled with similar ones. I´m totally in love with them! They come from the Open New Doors paper (Wanderlust Collection).

As you can see I have embossed on the background. I used a stamp from 7gypsies that I really love - the Time Pieces Cling stamp set. 

NOW - head over to the Words & Paintery blog to see what the rest of the ladies did!
