I love 7 dots studio, brand that I discovered through the amazingly talented Anna Dabrowska (aka Finnabair). The lines are so gorgeous that, to be totally honest with you, it is a bit intimidating to work with for me as I tend to cover up most of my paper layers in my creative process.
I started by tearing the beautiful Messy Head paper to 9×12”, I love ragged edges. Then, I mixed some Gab Me With A Spoon Gray Magical Mica with soft glossy gel medium to create a wonderful shimmery paste, that I simply applied with one of my Catalyst wedge here and there (it was helping me to overcome the «blank page» syndrom). I also used it for the top left corner.
I love love love the new dusty rose color, Bodalicious Blush, and sprayed it through a stencil as well.
Gel media and our LSG products love each other, proof is I used heavy gel with our Midnight Rendezvous Raven glitters (still from Totally 80’s) to stencil through and create her leafy wings; and then again with another stencil that I sprayed, once dry, with Icy Primrose Gold (a discontinued color) *the ink goes in the cracks and creates natural contrast*.
I used Fiber paste mixed with Time Travel Teal Magical Mica to create a great texture for her hair. I love how vibrant it stayed.
I love the short sentences on this paper, so you don’t necessarily see them at first but they are here.
I embossed the drops with Pumpkin Fiesta and Hydrangea Blue Mauve embossing powders, I did want the overlapping of the two colors so it was totally made on purpose.
Her antlers were cut out from the What Wood U Say paper, and then sprayed with Cowabunga Copper before being glued.
For her dress, I used the Sweet Dreams paper from the Dreamer collection. The fabric and colors were perfect for a dress. I did not want it to lay flat on top of the rest so I applied gel medium through a stencil, and to make it pop just a little more, sprayed with a golden Starburst Spray (as said earlier).
Her messages, Little Miracles, comes from the Messy Head Elements. I simply sprayed it with Cape Cod Coral and glued it where it seemed important.
I used Frolic In The Forest Green Magical Mica (from the Tickle Me Fancy set) for her eyes. And last but not least, I splattered the amazingly unique Sweet Violet Purple Teal as a final touch.
