Special Guest Spotlight on

We  have a very special guest this month to introduce to you,
although she surely needs no introduction!

Tusia Lech plays a very special part in the More Than Words community 
because as owner of 7 Dots Studio, she has been one of our very generous 
sponsors from the very beginning and a tremendous support.
Through her amazing art and her keen eye for marketing fabulous products,
she is a true inspiration to so many in every sense of the word.

Let's learn a bit more about Tusia through her own words:

Scrapbooking fills my whole life!  It is all around me - in my private life and in my job career, as I am the owner of 7 Dots Studio and also an eager scrapbooker. I love the process of creation.  I have created things since early childhood; all kinds of handmade things always attracted me. I cannot imagine my life without making some art. Even if I leave for a weekend, I always take my small 'art-bag', 
filled with art-journal supplies.

I love all kinds of media. If I would have to define my style, I would say that mixed media is the only constant thing. My favorite colours are fresh, bold greens, blues and pinks, but at the same time I just love delicate, pale hues of beige, rose and white. However, there is something that can always be found in my projects - 
a positive, feminine style.

I am lucky enough to be a designer in several creative places.  I also love drinking coffee, reading books, walking through the forest, watching flowers on the meadow, basking in the Autumn sun and being deep in my inner world. I can say that I am a happy person and wouldn't change a single thing in my life.

Here is a reminder of our May Main Challenge MOTHER & FLOWERS
followed the stunning project that it inspired Tusia to create!

Read below how Tusia describes in her own words how she was inspired
by our word and  how she incorporated our creative challenge:

The word MOTHER immediately made me think of Mother Earth!
I love FLOWERS. In my garden there are many of them - among others, tulips. For me, they are the symbol of Spring and they come in so many different shapes and colours. I think the photo I used for this layout was taken last Spring. Tulips are in a vase on my table almost every day throughout March and April. Loving Mother Earth gives us flowers and so many other things that make our days sweeter and brighter. We should all be thankful and treat our home - the Earth - 
with the utmost care and kindness.

For this particular layout, I have used the Writer's Block collection from 7 Dots Studio (it matched perfectly with the background of the board image) and a load of mixed media products, mostly from Finnabair: waxes, glass beads, mica powders, 
micro beads, gel medium, some mechanicals, etc.

Now don't you agree that Tusia has interpreted our challenge perfectly?
We love her different take on the word - the 'Mother Earth' theme is so brilliant -
and we couldn't love any more her choice of photo (bright vivid tulips) 
on the contrasting dark grey background full loaded with depth and texture. 
Truly stunning work!

Here are some close-ups:
