"Graphic 45 Design Team Audition 2015"

Hi Everyone,

It is that time of year again, when Graphic 45 chooses its design team for 2015.  Here are the projects I have created for submission along with a few that I have made in the past. Before I begin, Did I say, I love Graphic 45 Designer cardstock?  I do.

I will start off with  this pendant, I used "By the Sea" Graphic 45 collection, I zeroed in on this unique sea horse and then added liquid glass to the  domed glass, applied it to the sea horse, let it dry, trimmed it,and then placed it inside the faux antiqued gold pendant.

For my  next project I used "Time to Flourish" Paper series . This was a very quick and easy card to make, using layering and to give this great effect I used the journaling card and ephemera. My card base is 5 x 7,the journaling tag is 4 x 6. The ephemera pocket was already die cut and scored and then I just popped the tag inside. Easy peasy.

Lately I have been making quite a few of these tr-fold cards with the matching embossed envelope.  The card measures 4 1/4 x 5. The envelope is made from the same card stock

 I used the Graphic 45 By the sea  Designer series paper collection for this card also.

For this snow globe, other than the backing I fussy cut everything out. 

I used spellbinders dies for the card.

The snow globes are super fun. A absolutely love doing 3D projects, I find them relaxing to make and fun to see them finished, and everyone loves to get them as a gift.

  I also love hand coloring, embossing and  using paint and chalk. I can not think of anything I do not like about arts and crafts

 Here are a few more examples of what I like to do

I hope you have enjoyed my audition. Have a blessed day, Diana
