Just a Glimpse- Designed for 7 Dots Studio

Hi Everyone,
I'm back again designing a brand new layout for 7 Dots Studio

Here is the video tutorial on how I created this layout:

Just a glimpse is such a simple phrase that makes us think of a moment in time when we caught just a small part of something bigger than life. Its that moment that we can remember with love in our hearts. I want to always remember small glimpses of my life, just like this one as my two kids were playing together in the lake. I loved catching this rare moment when they both got along and it was the perfect picture to scrapbook on this layout.

Here are some more close-ups of my layout:

7 Dots Studio Verano Azul- white plank
7 Dots Studio 9th Wave- die-cut elements
The Crafters Workshop stencil 
Prima Finnabair Dust and Rust stamp
Prima Finnabair black gesso
Ranger black archival ink
Prima white vines
Tim Holtz pine needles distress ink
13 Arts turquoise metallic acrylic paint
Blue Fern Studios chipboard
Flowers: unknown

Tribal Woman- Art Journaling Page

Hi everyone,
I created this art journaling page on an airplane ride recently.
I painted a bunch of backgrounds in advance and then just took some markers and pens. Then I created this double page spread.

I knew I wanted to make a woman's face. I've been experimenting and learning how to draw faces. I'm not the best at drawing faces but I'm trying and getting more into it.
this time I drew a tribal woman but she can also be a sun goddess, autumn goddess, tribal warrior, etc.

I loved drawing this woman, especially her leafy hair crown. It took me almost my whole airplane ride to paint her but time past really fast!!

Seaside Cottage--- NEW Blue Fern Studios Collectin

We are thrilled to announce the release of our new paper collection - Seaside Cottage.   When we hear the word "seaside", several images come to mind; white sand, clear blue water, gentle waves, seashells, summer vacations, and the list could go on-and-on.  The beach is a place you can go to escape all the pressures of life.  
We bring that relaxed feeling to this new collection created by Michele Singh.  

Seaside Cottage is a 10-page collection of double sided paper that evokes the magic of the beach. 
 You will find beautiful images, lots of amazing texture, and soothing beach colors.  


We also have 2 sets of coordinating flowers:

And what would a new collection be without some fabulous new chipboard?
We have some seaside images, as well as some amazing titles for all your summer projects!

And to enhance all this beautiful chipboard, we have a few new colors of embossing powder:

How beautiful is this collection?
I can't wait to play with it!!

Have a wonderful day!!
