Graphic 45 Design Team 2014 Audition


Welcome to my Graphic 45 2014 Design Team Audition.  

**Big Breath**

First up, I would like to share a 'non' Christmas layout created from the beautiful 12 Days Of Christmas papers. A little background altering was done with some ink sprays and gesso.  A few of my favourite things were added to the mix with fussy cut flowers and birds along with pretty blooms  - these were also spritzed with ink sprays to coordinate.  A touch of Typography elegance with a few fussy cut elements and sentiments to finish it off. 

  'Your Aspirations Are Your Possibilities'

I absolutely adored the past Once Upon A Springtime and Secret Garden collections. So you can only imagine how delighted I was when the stunning Sweet Sentiments collection was released.  

A garden scene effect was created with lots of fussy cut elements.  I have a particular fondness for dimension, so lots of foam tape was used in the construction of this one. The outside frame removed from the Sweet Sentiments paper was also attached with foam tape to create a slight shadow box effect.  Decorative die cut and punched elements are tucked under the inside frame edges. 

Now for something a little sweet,girly and pretty: 

 'Happy Easter'
