I’m very excited to be auditioning to be a Design Team Member for Graphic 45. I’ve had myself a good old time creating these new projects just for this audition. There’s quite a few pictures….so get yourself a cup of coffee and set a spell and check out these great creations using fabulous Graphic 45 papers.
This vacation memories chest has ton’s of layers of vintage images mounted on acrylic sheets with tiny clips.
I started this project out with paper mache and finished it off with my usual shabby chic style. I embellished with flowers, shells, and Dusty attic chipboard.
Fashionista Frame with lot’s of paper pieced layers for detail and depth.
This sweet little mini album is actually a calendar created with ABC Primer! The sweet little butterflies are Graphic Fairy : )
Each set of pages has 3 month cards that flip up and a large pocket on the left to tuck in memorabilia and pictures.
Layout for my Niece and her daughter : ) They are very outdoorsy so no girly frou frou!
Very traditionally styled Christmas Card. I’ve been hoarding this image for quite a while waiting for a special occasion.
This project is very special to me as it was my “personal challenge” for this post. Make a collage with only items from the scrap and salvage box. All these yummy little bits and pieces were leftover from other projects just waiting to have a home of their own.
I’m on a quest to repurpose all my old frames into displays for the new shop. This particular frame is on the smallish side….but it was already painted. And as I am on the lazyish side….it was the winner for a makeover today : )
The beautiful vintage image came from Graphics Fairy : ) I wish I could have used the whole image…but that would involve painting another frame lol.
Another makeover flower. Just a bit smaller this time. I used a different trim on the back this time it has crochet accents. Lot’s of glitter and natural fibers. The text that’s stamped on is French. I think it translates into ” only a crazy person would spend so much time making over flowers!!” Hahaha
The faux frame layered behind the pretty lady is made from several pieces cut with the Cricut with white cardstock. The cartridge is Sentimental. I used different Tim Holtz Distress inks to mottle the colors and inked the edges as well. Then each layer got a misting of Perfect Pearls Mists in Biscotti. While it was still wet I sprinkled on a generous amount of flocking powder. To finish off the details I added Perfect Pearls also in Biscotti.
I started my day poking around in the stock boxes from the shop in hopes of finding the cord to my sewing machine. Apparently this is to be a lost cause. I did however find a box of old artificial flowers. I decided to try some techniques for altering them. I didn’t care for them too much anymore….so if they got ruined in the pursuit of art all I was loosing was a little time. I am THRILLED with how it turned out : )
↓↓Before and After↓↓
No I am not playing a trick on you…this was the same flower!!! Not to say that yellow roses aren’t nice and all. LOL I like the after a whole lot better : ) And are you noticing that there are two flowers??? You guessed it…I will be giving this one a makeover too!
So I also finished a couple of cards to share with you.
There’s like 5 different Distress Ink colors there haha. Once I got started it was hard to stop. I tucked this tag made with papers from My Minds Eye behind a glittery frame and layered it on a strip of typography from Jenni Bowlin Mercantile.
But….I did not find the cord to my sewing machine. Dang. Guess I’ll look again tomorrow. I might even find some more treasures to create with for my next post.
