Mixed Media Layout with Ninth Wave

Can I just start by saying how much I adore the 9th Wave collection from 7Dots Studios?!  The colors are wonderful and the textures in the background allow for multi dimensional layouts with less bulk to your page. Something any 'chunky' scrapper, like myself, lives for.

The bird bath resin piece is from Prima. I've never cared for it personally but was determined to use it and I just adore the way it turned out. The brick texture stamps along the edge are by BoBunny and the ticket stamp is Prima. I honestly don't know the name of the company where I got my arch window stamp but I LOVE them. 

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you hop over to eP to participate in this months get altered challenge - hearts and tune in Thursday the 16th for the eteam picks challenge for your chance to win.

Blue Fern and 7DOTS Giveaways

2014 has come in like a lion. Negative 20 degrees and 4 ft of snow...this is the worst winter we have had in decades. However, it brings snowdays, the smell of rustic soups simmering on the stove, creamy hot chocolate in our bellies, and board games in the middle of the day while the wind whips and whistles it's way around the house. 

As for my scrappy is a layout of my absolutely stunning friend Kim.

I used 7DOTS 9th wave papers and stamps from Bo Bunny, Prima, and Tattered Angels. The chippy piece is Blue Fern and the die cut is Spellbinders. There was quite a bit of layering added to this page but I just ADoRE the 7DOTS papers by Finn because there is so much texture already in the background. The ink splatters are inspired by Adrienne Ford. She is a wonderful artist and designer for Prima.

With 2014 the scrappy world has exploded in the anticipation of Winter CHA. Make sure you check out the release of 3 new collections by 7DOTS studios. They have something for everyone and their collections are amazing.
