Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition

If you are here for the IAR blog hop click here.

So its pretty obvious how much I adore Graphic 45! Those of you who follow me, already know this hehe! To me, their company is just the creme de la creme! And to be on their DT, well thats a DREAM! So anyways, here is my submission. The first 2 Secret Garden projects are brand new that I created especially for the call, and the others are some of my faves from the past year or so using their products. Hugs!
 
1. My "Secret Garden"





 
 
2. Secret Garden Altered G45
(This will be proudly hung in my scrapbook room! My love for G45 totally inspired me to do this!)
 






 
 
3. Altered Clock " Le Romantique"
(full video tutorial on my YT)




4. Handcrafterd 3D hot air balloon (full video tutorial on my YT) using
Le Romantique, A Ladies Diary, On the Boardwalk

 




 

 
5.  Altered Cigar Box for your very own Arlene My butterflykisses using
A Ladies Diary and Le Romantique
 




 
6. Le Romantique 3D dressform (full tutorial on my Youtube )



7. Altered Mixed Media Bubblegum Machine using Le Romantique
 





 
8. Nutcracker Sweet Christmas boxes ( one mixed media, the other traditional explosion box)
 






 
 
9. Nutcracker Sweet Christmas Ornaments




 
10. Nutcracker Sweet Snowlady Top Hats ( full video tutorial on my youtube channel)
 


 
 11. Secret Garden Altered Frame ( did an image transfer onto the frame )
 




 
 
Now I just want to show a few projects that were special to me in one way or another using G45 goodness! There is no way i could post them all Lol, way too many!
 
This was my set of "stacked books" using Olde Curiosity Shoppe with a splash of Steampunk. I posted a tutorial on my YT channel and this just took off, and so many fellow crafters did their version of it. Its very touching to know it was so well loved and to see it everywhere!


 
This wishing well is about 22 inches tall, and was a labor of love! It took me weeks to finish up and build it all together! It has a light mechanism so the inside lights up. The arm actually works, everything is fully functional! The keyhole on the fussy cut lady is where the light switch is at. The base was made of jenga pieces
 
 
Cards are very very hard for me to do! So I was proud of this one using Olde Curiosity Shoppe.
 
 
I loved making this Steampunk clock! Its so grungy and just fun!
 

I wanted to give my mother in law and granny really special cards this past Christmas, so I made them stocking cards. They loved them.
 


One of my most special friends daughter was in the Nutcracker play , and she had told me a story about it. I just knew I had to make her a configurations box with this range. A sweet gift for a sweet friend!

    I am a big fan of yours and watch every video you ever make. I don't know how you live inside your head with all you create. The ideas must just jumped out saying "pick me, pick me"..lol you are extremely talented and if someone does not get any inspiration from you they have to be dead.. I wish you so much luck with getting onto this dt, they have to nuts not to pick you...
    hugs

  32. Your work is on another level than everyone else's! Stunning and beyond! Congrats on the top 30!

  33. The thing I love about all your projects is that they make you see that you get down & dirty with your projects all the different elements I know when you walk away you have to be covered in paint, ink, paste or something. I love that about art, I gravitate visually more towards the projects that aren't so clean cut and perfectly made so that whomever crafted stayed clean, lol! I don't necessarily craft like that yet but I'm learning and you help me. I love that your art plays with all different varieties of products and creativity so for that Miranda, I wish you all the very best girl and I hope you soar with G45!!!!!! Love ya, ~Kelly
