On the 7 Dots blog this week we have issued a challenge! Are you ready to play along with us?
we are happy to start a new blog project named “Flea Market”! As you probably guess we’ll be working with the supplies which can be found on markets, in antique shops, in the attics, old drawers or family albums… as well as with our 7 Dots Studio collections which still amaze us with their versatility and are perfect materials for many creative experiments."
Here is what I created for this blog project, but you will definitely want to click HERE to see the projects made by the other designers... talk about inspiring!!
Old photos make me swoon. But THIS old photo makes me completely mushy inside. There is something about seeing family members from days gone by, and being able to tell a story with your project, and this layout is no exception. The baseball player is my Daddy, and that little princess with the wings? My Mama. Yes, they knew each other before they even knew what love was, or that they would have me. They lived next to each other all their lives before they actually “found” one another, and I love that. The other boys in the photos are uncles on both sides as well… )
The Dreamer collection from 7 Dots was PERFECTION for what I wanted to create, a whimsy filled, throw back to fun, with flea market finds like library index cards, buttons, an old plane ticket, etc.
