I am in Camerose Alberta at a four day retreat and FINALLY i get to work on the project that has been in my head for months.  Here it is mixed media album using 7 dots fortune teller paperline, this paperline is FANTASTIC.

Page 1
I love how this turned out.  Now i know there isn't a tonne of paper on the page, I was experimenting on using my new stencils.  So these are two stencils i have designed and cut with my silhouette.

I started with a starburst stencil and inked with mustard seed distress ink, but i didn't ink right to the edge so it would have a faded edge.  Next ink just the center with vintage photo distress ink.

Next mix mica powder- rust with light modelling paste.  I really like light modelling paste i find it works better with stencils i get crisper lines.  Now this is my favorite stencil I have wanted an eyeball for ever, so i designed one.  I am going to toot my own horn it looks FAB!
I love how the dots create detail and depth.

Final touches, add lindy's turquoise and treasure island aqua around eyeball.  I added scallop banners cut from 7 dots fortune teller added a saying, rub on and sewing.  TA DA page 1 of album done.

Now for page 3
I know it is hard to see, i did a rough trace of a flower with pencil onto tracing paper. Image transfer onto base page with gel medium, I pulled off while it was still damp so i got the pencil lines and some white residue left behind.  This was a let's do it and see what happens and it worked.

This page I am entering for 7 dots October/ November Challenge- Good Fortune

I did a rough coloring around edges with water soluble wax pastel.  Just brought these i will be buying more. Next use water and a paint brush to create a water color effect.

This is the final look, I used a water color pencil dipped in water to outline and add details.  Stamped with some texture stamps and used a stencil for the script (another stencil designed and cut by me toot toot)

Next i decorated 6 mini folders with 7 dots fortune teller paper.  Add a pattern paper cover then sewed around- messy sewing i wanted to look random not perfect.  I pre cut texture and banner shape with my silhouette.  (love my silhouette and corel draw)  Add paper clip, chipboard star and words.  These were fun to make.

Here it is all pulled together.  Inside i glued some vintage pictures of gyspies.  Now if i wasn't making this a kit i would put in some old family photos then a little journaling inside.
