Today I am sharing my Graphic 45 Design Team 2016 Final Round submission. I can share with you how nervous I have been since I made the top 30 list of finalists and that has led me to sharing two tutorials with you today! I had two ideas for projects and I thought I would make both and then pick one to submit but I can't choose!!!!…..what if I pick the wrong one!!
They are both so different and I love them equally so as this round of the audition is all about showing who you are as a Designer I think this is me! I love to design projects and share tutorials and the more I share the more I love it. I have had some fabulous feedback from my first round pieces and I just want to tell you all how much I appreciate your support and hope that you love these projects just as much as the first ones.
So…..in no particular order ;-) Here is my first canvas inspired by the vibrant patterns and images of the Voyage Beneath the Sea paper collection.
In the tutorial you will see how much fun is to be had when using Graphic 45 papers to create canvas art. I loved adding all of the detail and sparkle to this ocean scene and even though there is a steampunk element to this collection I just had to go with Mermaid all the way!
Here is a fabulous shot (if I say so myself!) of the mermaids tail which is such a fun technique. So lots of hints and tips on this tutorial to help you create sea themed works of art of your own. Wouldn't it be fun to take some of these elements and add them to a scrapbook page of a favourite day at the beach?
I will show you how using more than one image means you can bring real dimension to your projects with just a little patience for all the fussy cutting.
Another thing about me is a designer is that my mind is always whirring away and more often than not one project leads to another as you can see…….
In my last post I shared a tutorial to show how to up cycle old video cases into beautiful mini albums so this one is ready for me to add my photographs next time I go on my holidays. Hope it is not skiing ;-)
…….and I know just where to store all the shells I love collecting from the beach…….
