Fun destination- 7 Dots Studio GD

Hello Friends!!!!

I was so thrilled when I received an email from 7 Dots Studio to ask me to Guest Design for June. Then I went on receiving a very generous package with almost all the collections. Therefore I decided to make 5 layouts to really showcase all these beautiful collections. I will be displaying each layout on a separate post in the next few days.

Here is my first one:

This is a picture of my kids playing at the beach. I tried to match the ocean tones with the papers. I combined two different 7 Dots Collections:"Hopefully" and "Love is in the air" to create lots of layers on the page. Then I added matching embellishments to compliment it.

I used some light molding paste to mask a chevron pattern in the background. I also found lots of beautiful flowers to match these papers from 7 Dots.

To frame the picture, I used Frame 2-Etched by 2 Crafty Chipboard. I simply covered it in gesso and then painted it with green pearlescence shimmery acrylic paint.

7 Dots Papers:
Love is in the air- Rising Sun
Hopefully- Tags 12x12
Hopefully- Find Me

Other Materials
Flowers: Prima, Recollection, Petaloo
Resin: Recollections
Prima chevron mask
Light molding paste
cheesecloth, Gesso
Wooden clip: Prima
2 Crafty chipboard Frame
title: Heidi Swapp
Pearlescence green acrylic paint

Thanks so much for being here for me!!
have a fantastic day!!
