Boo hoo

Have y'all heard of the paper company, Graphic 45? They have GORGEOUS papers - vintage with a modern touch. I just love all their lines. They recently had a call for additional design team members, so I applied, along with a zillion other paper artists! Yesterday was the announcement and I am so bummed - I didn't make it. :( But I must admit that the six new members are fantastically talented and do amazing work. You can check out the Graphic 45 blog here and follow the links to the blogs of all the design team members.

These are two of the projects I submitted. The first is a 6" square black card. The fashionable woman and words are stamps, the lace is vintage and four of their papers are layered. I loved how my stamp matched the tan background paper. All the papers I used for both projects are from the Fashionista collection.

This is a layout of my mother circa 1946. I used regular old corrugated cardboard for the base and, again, several Graphic 45 papers, grungeboard, wire and the new Claudine Hellmuth sticky back canvas.
