Hi and welcome to my audition for the Graphic 45 Design
Team. I am so excited to be entering this year and I
hope you enjoy having a look around.My first piece is a scrapbook page using a photo of my husband and I – I love this photo as it brings back great memories of being together as a family for Christmas. I used ‘A Ladies’ Diary’ papers, The Crafter’s Workshop Chevron Stencil with texture paste, gesso and some embellishments to add dimension. I also highlighted the texture on the page with a soft pencil and smudged it with my finger.
My second piece also uses ‘A Ladies’ Diary’ but has a totally different feel, more masculine, because of the papers I selected.
My third page is a double spread using Kraft Reflections papers – I so love the combination of kraft, white and black. This was a layout about reflection on my life now that I have reached 50. I used 2 lined envelopes containing tags with lots of journaling and photos of me growing up. . . and of course more flowers lol!
I also completed some Off-The-Page projects using Graphic 45 papers. Firstly I worked on a canvas with ‘A Ladies Diary’ (love this collection). To start, I used a photo transfer technique to apply an image to the back of the canvas. I then used some paint, a Twiddleybitz frame, some fussy cutting and more flowers.
For this Off-The-Page project I used a cheap plastic photo frame and converted it into a message board for the kitchen. It has a clock (still can’t believe I actually got this to work), frames for photos, blackboards and pegs for writing messages. I then decorated it with staple flowers, buttons, metal tags and old clock parts.
The next project was a mask for a ball. I moulded the paper around a paper mache blank and decorated with flowers, butterflies, pearls and feathers.
I then thought she really needs a ball gown to go with it, so made one out of the Graphic 45 papers (a mixture from ‘French Country Collection’ and ‘Curtain Call’) on a paper mache dress form.
My train started as an idea for children’s toy, and quickly developed into my Steam Punk version. I wanted to have it coming from a 2D version out of a shadow box into the 3D version but ran out of time so you just get the train
My last project for the audition is a paper bag mini album I completed for my son’s graduation. I used ‘Curtain Call’ with a touch of lime green to match my son’s tie. It is made from 4 bags so along with the pages, it also has 8 double sided tags.
I also decorated a Twiddleybitz shadow box using ‘Olde Curiosity Shoppe’
Thanks for dropping by.
