7 Dots Studio Canvas, Part 1

7DotsCanvasPart1
Paper Piecing With a Twist is the theme at Our Creative Corner this week, hosted by the very talented Vicky Burdick. Vicki asks us to stamp something and then paper-piece part of it with designer paper. The only other restrictions are to use no ribbon, and only one embellishment.

I’ve fallen in love with the Dreamer Collection from 7 Dots Studio.  These are just the most gorgeous papers. I used an Acey Deucy stamp, stamping  my lady repeatedly on different papers from the Dreamer line.  Cut out the parts and layered them on a tag I’d also cut from Dreamer, using my Tim Holtz Sizzix die.  It’s all resting on an 8X10 canvas I painted with watered-down acrylic paints.

In keeping with the restrictions, I used only one embellishment (stickers) and no ribbon. I stopped at this, but didn’t feel it was finished.  This is one of the things that I find difficult about working with specific parameters. I love challenges, but often I just want to go further and see where things take me.  Anyway, I finished it up last night and will show you tomorrow what I came up with in Part 2. Hope you’ll pop back over…. I really love the way it came out!

Also, I want to make a shout-out to Patti at Absolutely Everything.  AE is a fantastic brick and mortar store in Massachusetts, and I’ve happily traveled there more than once for Tim’s classes. They also have an online store with great inventory and super fast shipping, mostly because of Patti’s amazing customer service.  She ships with the speed of light! I definitely recommend you give them a try next time you need supplies.

Thanks so much for visiting.  I hope you’ll join us at  Our Creative Corner this week. Besides the current challenge, we also have a Design Team Call open through midnight on Monday, January 23.

    You used a stamp I’ve loved for a long time but don’t actually own.
    The depth to this is remarkable, all the layers as is the paper piecing.
    Fabulous work.
