Guest Designer Renea Harrison Featuring 7Dots Studio


Welcome to the weekend everybody!! I am back as a Guest Designer this week and was so very excited to get to work with the Berry71Bleu Sponsor this month,  7Dots Studios' gorgeous papers!! I love 7Dots Papers, they are so nice and thick and perfect for the kind of distressing and technique work that I love to do. 

I also got to play along with Bellaidea's Fun Challenge this month.

She decided to break some rules and have lots of fun!

Now here is my layout that I created using those amazing 7Dots Studio papers:


I used lots of distressed layers of the 7Dots Domestic Goddess Papers and tags, along with 7Dots Hopefully stickers and tags. I got a little crazy and did some paint splatters in unusual colors for me, black, gold and pink, and then used this crazy florist "ribbon" that I found that looked like chicken wire that was coated. I love the pattern, and the coating lends tons of texture.


Here you can see all the water distressing I did, and the rolling back of the paper to form a pocket that I layered with painted corrugated board and then filled with lots of flowers, and a metal charm that I popped one of the 7Dots Hopefully Stickers onto.


Here are all those messy paint splatters, and you can see that I used a 7Dots tag that I cut out in the shape of a banner and tucked behind the photo with some pleated Vintage lace. I did 3 different distressed peek a boos that I layered seed beads onto, and then tucked some of the 7Dots stickers behind with more pleated lace.


I layered my photo on top of one of the 7Dots journaling tags that I used to create my title "Destination", and then added on two of my Pink Lemonade Glitter Glass Butterflies from my Etsy Shop to add even more dimension.

I just love scrapping with no moderation and with a touch of wildness. It sets me free and allows me to create without boundaries. This challenge was soooo much fun-thank you Bellaidea!! And a huge thank you to 7Dots Studios!!! You make creating beautiful projects a snap! ~Renea
