Graphic 45 Round 2 Audition!

Good fortune is with me again as  I made it through the first round of design team auditions for Graphic 45!  So,on to the final round!  I saw so many wonderful auditions and I feel so honored to have been selected in the semi-final round.  Eeek, this process is really quite nerve-wracking, especially since I was out cruising in the Caribbean instead of working on my final audtion piece!

I decided to do a mini album tutorial for my final.  I used G45's mixed media album and the Precious Memories collection with a little bit of  the Mother Goose collection mixed in.

Join me in my tutorial video and I will show you how to make the cover and assemble the pages.  I've structured this mini so that you can  quickly assemble all the pages and then make each page unique with your embellishments and photo placement.


Graphic 45:
 Precious Memories Collection 12 x 12 and 8 x 8 collections
Mother Goose Collection
Mixed Media Album - Ivory
Shabby Chic Door Pull
Liquidtex Matte Medium
May Arts Crushed ribbon
Creative Embellishments Chipboard
I am Roses gardenias, daisies, and carnations

I also want to share this layout that I did today.  I chose a really old collection for this layout, Fashionista from 2009.  I just thought it was a perfect collection to pair with our flapper costumes that we wore for our photo shoot while cruising with the Graphic 45  family and so many G45ers.  It was so much fun!!

 I really love the royal blue in this collection.  Petaloo's sugared blooms match perfectly!

 I fussy cut these flowers from design paper in the collection and then topped with dimensional flowers to give the floral cluster depth.

 One of the design papers included this winged clock at the top so I fussy cut it out and popped it up.

Thank you so much for viewing my audition.  I wish all the semi-finalists the best of luck.  Wow, there are so many incredibly talented G45 crafters out there.  I can't imagine trying to select 15 from this year's field.
