Documented

Hi peeps!!

Dropping in today to do a quick post sharing some projects created using my April design team kit from The Scrapbook Store. This month the main feature of the kit is the gorgeous Bo Bunny Heritage Collection. To me it was very vintage inspired with deep rich colours.

'Documented'


I really didn't do a lot in the background as the paper was already so stunning, I simply rubbed ink on to the background to lift the main cluster a bit.





I fussy cut a lot of the elements on this page and it was so worth the time to do it. I used tea to dye the white heart crotchet trim to match my page.

2015 Prima Design Team Application

Hello Peeps!

Welcome to my 2015 Prima Design Team application.

I would like to thank Prima for taking the time to review my application.

This last year has seen many changes in my scrapping style but 2 things haven't changed, my love of fussy cutting, the need for my pages to have dimension. I have always had a great love for all things Prima. I have found that as my style has changed and evolved and is now incorporating mixed media Prima products allow me the creative freedom to continue with a style that is true to me but add a little more wow factor. I love to create pages that can be full, highly embellished and dimensional or that are arty and clean with lots white space. White space has kind of become my signature. I would describe my style as very layered with lots of detail, clean execution and structure with the focus still being on the photo.

I like to create controlled arty textured water coloured mixed media backgrounds for my main cluster to sit upon but just enough to have a splash of colour and texture peeping out to make my cluster POP! 

'Happiness'

Graphic 45 2015 Design Team Audition Final Round

Howdy!!

I have had an exciting last few weeks, for those of you that didn't know I was lucky enough to be picked as a top 25 finalist for the Graphic 45 Design Team. I was so so happy to see my name on that list. So now that I have made the list the next step was to create a video slideshow of 3 projects that represented me as a designer.

I chose to create a all new layout and an altered book. I will share both of these projects in future posts. But today I thought I would share my video with you.


I am very happy with how it turned out, considering I had never done anything like this before. If I make it no further then where I have gotten so far I will still be very happy and as a further bonus I now know how to make a video slideshow.

I would like to say thank you to Graphic 45 for selecting me in their top 25 and for allowing me to make it this far. I would also like to wish all of the other finalists the very best of luck!
