I have a confession to make to those of you who don't know it yet.... I LOVE GRAPHIC 45 papers!! I know, I know most of you already know this, but there are always new comers and I need to tell them. ;)
As you saw from the blog title today I am pulling up my big girl panties and be a big brave dog!! I am auditioning for the G45 design team. Wait, what's that in the back?? A small faint voice that says you are not familiar with Graphic 45. Please click on THIS. I know it will take a while to come back , but please try to remember to come back and finish looking at my pics.
The design team call was to make a minimum of 6 projects. I got so caught up that I ended up with 8 projects. I made two mini books, two altered projects, two 12 X 12 layouts, one tag, and one card. I used mostly G45 papers. I used the Communique 12x12 paper pad and the 12x12 Play Times Past paper pad. I used an 8x8 paper pad - ABC Primer. I used some washi paper I got many years ago while we lived in Japan. I also used two pages from the Le Fluer paper pad by Paper studio.
All of the projects in this post are brand new. Since there are a lot of pictures and techniques that I used to make these projects I will make a series of more in depth tutorials, supply lists and explanations of the projects over the week. For now sit back and enjoy the photo's and a brief explanation of each photo.
Drum roll please.........
Let's start with the 12x12 Layouts:
Next layout is my husband's grand parents. A relative found some pictures in need of preservation and had them digitally remastered, so while the quality of the photo may not be the best you sure can feel the wonderful happiness from this photo.
I have two altered objects:
The clock that I altered has a small, but cute story. While in college a friend of mine felt that our sparsely decorated to small for our family city dwelling needed some styling up, so he bought me a clock. Now I adore my sweet friend, but over the years as my own style developed the clock just did not fit in. I hope he really likes what I did with it. I have pics of it once it had had a few coats of white, but not of the clock the way it was in it's original glory. I was just way to kind to subject you all to that you may thank me later. :)
Next altered project was gifted to me by a friend who said that she had held on to it for years and never had a vision for it. She challenged me to do something with it. Now, she wants it back. :) Love it.
Hang in there with me everyone we are nearing the home stretch. I hope you are enjoying the pictures and descriptions.
Now I have a card and a tag:
I used the Playtimes Past and the ABC Primer for them.
