Design Team Project #2 Featuring 7Dots Studio Dreamer Collection ....

Good Morning everyone .... Gillian here again with my 2nd DT project featuring the "Dreamer" collection from 7Dots Studio. Using the Small Creative Covers Art Part Set from Studio 490 I created a small flip journal to hold my thoughts, memories, inspiration etc throughout this year.


I started out by covering the front and back of my journal with the "City Lights" papers and inking around the edges with Distress Inks (Walnut Stain). I then used embellishments from the "Elments & Stickers" 12x12 set. Using Archival Ink (Library Green) I stamped tickets from the A6 Unmounted Stamp Plate "Tickets" from Creative Expressions some direct onto my project, others have been stamped onto co-ordinating cardstock and trimmed to size.


I have added layers of gauze netting to the spine of the journal, inking with Distress Stain  (Vintage Photo) to add colour, the netting was adhered with Claudine Hellmuths Matte Medium, I then added various Ideaology embellishments adhering with Ranger Glossy Accents.


On the inside I used scraps of co-ordinating cardstock again from the "Dreamer" collection to create my tag/note pouches. The scraps were folded in half, either side stuck down with adhesive,I then used a 1" punch approx measuring the halfway point of the punch to create the opening leaving the top free to slip a tag or note into. The Grid Stamp is from Kaisercraft which is also available at Snazzy's. I then added scraps of lace & organza ribbon in between the layers.






Well that's it from me today .... I hope you have liked the projects so far using this gorgeous collection. I will be back on Friday with a very simple Home Decor/gift project & some news!! TFL x
