Hello hello hello!!!! Yes ladies and gents it's that time again! The time I wait all year for, well next to Christmas and summer break :D This is the team that I dream about, the papercrafting company that I love so very much. I covet these papers like Gollum with his precious. Yes I still have Oz and Alice as well as Playtime and the original Botanica Bella and Steampunk Debutante.Grab a cuppa and sit with me for a bit as I share the projects I've made in hopes that I can make it :)
First off, let me say that when it comes to Graphic 45 you are only limited by your own imagination.The papers flow from one line to the other so that you can mix and match to your hearts desire. I have done this with a couple to show just how versatile it is.
First up I have an adorable Valentine Banner made with two lines, By The Sea, ABC Primer and A Place In Time. I have been loving my Utee as of late and used it to dip the paper scrabble letters and Be Mine in. Bitty flowers and heart cut outs as well as some butterflies and stickles for sparkle. I used tulle to bind it together.
Next up is a sweet layout of my daughter and granddaughter. Sophia was not quite two and my grandie Aelyn was days old. I used Little Darlings, Once Upon A Springtime and Sweet Sentiments. Some texture paste and stenciling a lovely Dusty Attic chippie and handmade flowers with Heartfelt Creations stamps and die.
Here is an adorable inverted canvas I made using Secret Garden and a wee bit of Sweet Sentiment for fussy cut flowers. I love this idea for canvases, it opens a whole array of creativity! I texture paste and stenciled brickwork to mimic the garden wall and fussy cut galore here for layering in such awesome dimension. The butterflies I stamped then painted and once again dipped for a luscious glass effect.
Thanks for visiting, wish me luck!
