Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

Can Dreams come true…?

On the top of my Dream list that I wrote in July 2011 is to Design for Graphic 45,  so I’m putting on my big girl panties and going for it.

I am very nervous but I wont know if I can do it until I try.

This is my Audition,  I hope you enjoy…

Please click on images for more detail 🙂

Follow Your Dream.

 This is one of my first projects I ever did with Graphic 45,

 The start of a love affair of all things Graphic 45.

I made this Wizard of Oz Altered Book for my Daughters Birthday.

Dream is made up of all the important parts of my life.

Very meaningful and something that I will keep close.

The School Pail was made out of packaging from a christmas gift my belated

father in law gave me.  I kept it for a special project and love the end result.

The paper bag album inside is of Amber-Leigh’s first day of school.

There’s No Place Like Home.  LOTS of fussy cutting,  something I love to do.

I find it very relaxing and love the result that it gives.  ‘My Family’

Butterfly Lady.

She is my pride and joy.  I totally love this project and how it turned out.

I spent hours cutting out all the butterfly’s and then adding to bodice.  I

then embossed the whole body and frame.

Create.  One of my first plays with mixed media and random placement.

Three Mini Canvases,  but all joined by theme.  very cute .

A card  made using gesso,  chippies and crackle paint.  She is such a

little cutie pie.

I have included three layouts which I made to show different techniques, I love

lace, layering, gesso, and random bits and bobs and all things with a

vintage flair.

Well I hope you have enjoyed viewing my Graphic 45 Design Team Audition.

I have my fingers, toes and anything else I can cross, crossed!

Thank you so much for taking the time to view.

Best of crafting luck to all the other applicants  xox  Donna 🙂

  2. Thanks Brenda, Theresa and Lynda. Im a bit guttered as I was trying to be clever with the photos to add some depth and all I managed to do was darken them all and I don’t know how to fit it! Thankyou for your lovely comments. I really do appreciate them.
