7 Dots Studio: "You're Special"

Good morning everyone :) I hope your week is off to a great start!

I'm kicking off my Monday with a canvas that I created for 7 Dots Studio, with a masculine take on the beautiful new Messy Head collection by Olga Heldwein.

"You're Special"
This super handsome guy is of course my oldest, Wyatt. I took this photo on his last day of Preschool and he has just GROWN so much over the past year! In just 9 days, he will enter Kindergarten. So hard to believe that I'm the mom of a school-age child. Just crazy!

I tackled the blues and browns in this collection and just love how they came together :)

 Plenty of goodies tucked here and there! I've used a Memory Box die to cut the frames behind my photo, using some papers from the Messy Head 6x6 Designer Pad.

 
The heavy weight of 7 Dots Studio papers makes playing with mediums a lot of fun! So nice to have papers that will stand up to whatever you throw at it ;)







Products Used:

Messy Head: Love Letter
Messy Head: 6x6 Designer Pad
Hopefully: Stickers 6x12 
 
Other Products Used:
 
 Wood Icons in a Box: Clocks and Gears
Natural Bark- Stars
