DT Project #2 by Minxy : Featuring:

 :Creative Expressions 'Tickets' Plate
:7DotStudios 'Dreamer' Collection

I'm totally in love with the idea of mixing my mediums so I thought this the perfect place to show that you don't have to work with just paper on a project. Fabric is good too!
As this card shows..
For the base square I did a wood effect using acrylic dabbers, I then edged it with a gold krylon pen.
 Next I layer a square of hessian bag, followed by a square of cotton which I had stamped with sepia archival ink using the very cool 'ticket' stamps from creative expressions.
For the centre I used one of the stickers from the 12x12 'dreamer' collection sticker sheet cut down slightly with some fancy edge scissors.
I die-cut a heart and painted it with gold acrylic dabber, I then wrapped with a single strand of hessian and added another little sticker to complete the look.
Simple, pretty and a mix of mediums.
So next time you look at your supplies.. think what you can do differently!
Right that me done for today but i'll be back again tomorrow with more 7DotStudio goodness.

I do like this project Nicky ........... a lot! I love the texture of the fabrics and the washed colour effect. Great way to use the ticket stamps too.

As the other ladies said already, great project Nicky. Love all the different textures and the way the string picks up the texture of the hessian links it all together beautifully. Very, very effective!!
