This is Happiness - 7 Dots Studio

It's Friday! Are you planning on having some crafty time during the weekend? Well, there's a great challenge over at 7 Dots Studio (link) to get you going or maybe you can find inspiration in this video I did. You can see the original post on the 7 Dots Studio blog here (link)

The topic of the page is my darling husband. I just love these kinds of photos, him with either or both of our girls, goofing around. As the topic of the page is happy and joyous, I wanted the colors and embellishments to bring out that feeling as well. So I chose to go with yellow, orange and red. 

I started the page with monoprinting using a small Gelliplate and then continued building layers with acrylic paints and stamping. I also added both white and golden glitter splashes to the page. When adding the final touches, I also added some rhinestones to add more of that sparkle!

I did a couple of things differently this time. First of all, this video is my very first voice over one. First? you say. Yes, this was the first one I did - but when the publishing time came, some of the videos passed this one. But please tell me what you like! I guess this video has the same problem than the one I published already with the volume level, but I've tried to better than in the future ones.

I also made this video longer than my usual ones. I was asked to show more about the paper layering and embellishing process so instead of editing those out, I left them in. Hope you like it! 

Thank you for stopping by today and thank you for watching! Wishing you a fine day and great start to the weekend!

Wow! That video is amazing! You make it look so easy. Maybe I will be brave enough to use my gelling plate soon.
