7 Dots Illumination - Guest Spot

Hi there, and happy hump day!

The Flying Unicorn Creative Team are being featured on the 7 Dots Studio blog today and tomorrow, using the fun & funky Illumination collection. The fun patterns of this paper inspired me to scrap this silly picture of my eldest when he was a baby (this is a face he still makes at 7 years old when he's hamming it up for the camera).


One of the marvellous things about these papers is that the grey pages have a washed out image of the pattern of the coloured side, but on different pieces of paper, so you can match patterns without having to buy two of the same pages. I randomly cut the shapes out from the grey page, allowing the colourful paper to show through.

In the photo below you can see the separation between the pages - I used some scrap bits of chipboard to separate my layers.


I added dots of Shimmerz Dimensionz and Viva Pearl Pen to add some bright colour throughout.


Bright Prima flowers finish the whole thing off.


I hope you'll stop by the 7 Dots Studio blog for more inspiration from our creative team and a chance to win a gorgeous prize pack. And remember to check out the Flying Unicorn Store for a wide array of 7 Dots Studio products.
