Happy Saturday, everyone!

Mixed media is slowly becoming a favorite in my crafting life. What I love the most is the process of creating with different mediums, textures, layers. I find it so pleasant and relaxing…

The current challenge at 7 Dots Studio is to create any kind of project dedicated to our favorite historical figure. I must confess it was a difficult choice; I could think of many great minds, artistes, pioneers in different areas, etc. Human rights, justice and equity among people, always were subjects dear to me, so my choice fell on Gandhi, for his perseverance, belief, and for “fighting with peace”. Could have been others…

I found this iconic image of Mahatma Gandhi and his spinning wheel, that I thought would be perfect for using in my layout. If you wish, you can read more about this photo here:

While searching for peace symbols, other than the famous peace sign, I came across the sad story of this little girl… and I found another favorite historical figure. The girl is Sadako Sasaki. To learn a little bit more about Sadako and her motivation to fold over 1000 paper cranes, please head over to this link: http://www.origami-resource-center.com/sadako.html

 

I’m entering the following challenges:

7 Dots Studio September Challenge: Favourite Historical Figure – I used Hazy Days 12”x12” paper for my layout, 6”x6” piece of paper from Writer’s Block and Verano Azul sentiment sticker.

 

 

Mixed Media & Art September Challenge – I was mostly inspired by colors, especially on the abstract image on top left corner… mesmerizing! I could have an entire wall like that image…

 

 

Mixed Media Place September Challenge – Also inspired by colors on top left corner of the moodboard.

 

 

Mixed Media World #30 – Anything mixed media goes with a twist (use or imitate glass) – I used Nuvo dew drops and clear pebbles.

 

Winnie & Walter: Anything but a card challenge with Kelly – Celebrating WCMD 2017

 

 

Supplies:

Stamps: Altenew – Hennah Elements, Ori Kami; Prima and Stamplorations texture stamps.

Stencils: Memory Box, Prima and Tim Holtz.

Dies: W&W – In a Word: Peace Cutaway.

 

Thank you for stopping by.
