Graphic 45 Design Team Entry

Everyone who knows me, knows I have a top 3 to 4 companies I use a lot. Well one of my top companies is having a DT call. I am trying out for it! Nervous, scared, and that's okay.

                                     If we never try we will never know what could have been. 

This is all about projects using Graphic 45!

Wish me luck in this new Journey!

Project 1 - Halloween in Wonderland tray
(This was donated to the Altered Alice blog as a prize)

Project 2 - Halloween in Wonderland card

Project 3 - A Proper Gentlemen Shadow Box Collage
Notice the extra shading on the Watch
Project 4 - Hanging Collage - Mix of G-45 papers & flowers
My Dad

Project 5 - Hand dyed muslin w/stamped Le Cirque Elephant Pillow
Project 6 - Steampunk Debutante Dress Form
This was so fun to do
Project 7 - Halloween in Wonderland Card
                                                Project 8 - Domestic Goddess Layout
                                                                  This is a picture of my Mom and Great Grandma
                                                         Tag out of the root beer pocket
                                  Don't throw the package out....NEVER...makes for a great tag
                                               It's covered now......just wanted to show the back before it was covered
                                                                 Pull out journal tag
Project 9 - Christmas Past Black Envelope Album
I will show you a few pages, or it could get long



Project 10 - Halloween in Wonderland Collage Book
Made out of old files
I chose my favorite pages, not the whole book

                                                             Yep this is how I feel about trying out.....LOL! 






Project 11 - Le Cirque Clutch Purse
Yes, I said purse. I love this. I wish you could touch and see how beautiful this is in person. I will explain a little on how I did this. I took vinyl and put it over the paper, then attached the paper to Grungepaper and stitched it all together. This was so fun.
                                                                         Back side
                                                             Magnetic snap closure
                                                                  Few extra looks
                                                       How cute is this.......soooooo cute!
Project 12 - Collage, painted altered art, then waxed
Project 13 - Le Cirque Night Light
FUN!
Project 14 - and the final is a card made from Once Upon a Springtime
Thanks for stopping by.......Would love to hear what you think.
Maybe one of these will have to become a prize for someone. What do you think about a giveaway?
Wish me luck, I am going to need it with all the great designers out there!

Note to Graphic 45.............If I you think my clutch was cool, wait till you see what I have in store for the final cut! LOL!

I have ALWAYS thought you had an amazing talent. Your affinity for these paper collections make you a natural! Your Graphic 45 printers' tray was so great I had to do a review of it on The Altered Alice, and when you donated it as blog candy we got 75 NEW followers because of it! Your amazing dress form inspired me to finally create one. YOUR art has inspired ME to stretch and GROW in my own art. As a G45 DT member, think of HOW MANY others you will inspire!!! I am absolutely confident that G45 will also see HOW AMAZING you are! Good luck, bonne chance!
