7 Dots Studio- Dream

Finished a layout for 7 dots studio- theme Dreams here is the inspiration circle

and here is my take

I used 7 dots studio Lost and Found collections, Vine Scroll and Scribble Frame chipboard you can purchase at my etsy store BoozyBear.  Mixed Media product are light modeling paste, Alchemy paint- emerald green, unicorn hair, Primary Elements- Burnt Umber, Golden Bamboo, Acrylic Paint, Natural Sisal Fibers, Distress ink, cheesecloth, black and white gel pen, and finally black charcoal.

As always I started by creating a background, I mixed acrylic paint with modeling paste and applied through stencil. Add a light coat of clear gesso.  Once the modeling paste is dry add Lindy's Edelweiss Moss Green, sprinkle on with nozzle then spray with water to move color around.  Use a paintbrush to splatter emerald green then spray with water to blur and puddle color.  I doodled with black and white gel pen on texture.

Layer on paper panels and tags. Underneath paper panels is distressed cheesecloth, I sprinkle on Primary Elements Golden Bamboo then spray with water crunch up cheesecloth to color entire piece and dry with a heat gun. This gets variations in color.  Rip it up and pull apart.

I painted vine scroll and scribble frame chipboard with black acrylic paint.  Paint alchemy paint unicorn hair on top of vine scroll and emerald green on scribble frame. Around the scribble frame with photo inside I wrapped natural sisal around.

I used scribble frame and paper shapes included in paper pack to create a dream catcher.  I wanted to highlight the dream catcher so I used charcoal to look like it was casting a shadow.  Really adds dimension.

Splatter with watered down white acrylic paint.  I like to watered down the paint so it splatters easier.

Once layout is assembled I sprinkled on Primary Elements Burnt Umber around layers and spritz with water.

Add some paper shapes into layers.

Really like the sisal fibers, I saw this product be used on video and tutorials but it was super hard to find in my neck of the woods, but etsy to rescue.  Safe to say this will be my new favorite product for awhile.
