Welcome to my audition for the Design Team
over at Graphic 45
Yes, this is the announcement I am referring to from my most recent post. About 2 weeks ago one of my shadowboxes was highlighted HERE on the Graphic 45 Blog, which I mentioned in an email to many of you. As part of the audition and selection process, I need to post 6 projects I've done, so this is going to be an image heavy post......please bear with me.
First up is a project I just made for my husband using Graphic 45's "Old Curiosity Shop" paper line. I used an old, segmented wooden box and filled each opening with lots of weirdness and curiosities.

This is a "junque" journal I made using the "Prima" Belle Fleur line of papers. I also made a few "paperdolls" using the images and printing them out, reversed, on brown craft paper.
I've shown this before, but I am posting it again as I think it really shows my style.
This is the shadowbox that was featured on Graphic 45's blog. I used quite a few of my paper flowers for this one, and created the fence by adhering the image of the fence to a sheet of balsa wood and then cutting it out. One of the reason I love Graphic 45 paper is because it's weight is heavy enough to create the layering effect I use, making images 3D.
I asked permission from the amazing Kim over at "Musings by Kim K" to use an image of her two lovely daughters in this layout. I used Graphic 45's "Bird Song Collection" and had fun creating yet another 3D aspect on the page with the lanterns.
Last, but not least, a card I created using Graphic 45's "Spring Garden" collection.
Thank you for your patience, and I will definitely announce if I make it to the second and final round.
