I guess I'm a sucker for punishment, lol! Every year Prima announces it's Design Team search, and every year I apply (except last year - I was busy getting a separation and divorce). After all I have been through in the past 12 months, I was hesitant to apply this year, but a certain Stephanie Devlin kicked my behind, and told me to get my act together. Lucky I love that woman, lol!!!
So, this one's for you Steph! Let's keep our finger's crossed. :)
And before we go any further, I'd like to wish all the Prima DT applicants the best of luck. Putting yourself out there isn't easy, but for a select few, the reward will be worth it.
PROJECT 1: STEAMPUNK MINI CANVAS
I have always loved creating canvases, and this is one of my all time favourites. Mixing chipboard and metal can create some amazing effects.
PROJECT 2: WISHING WELL
This project was a huge learning curve, and extremely fiddly, but the end result was completely worth it. This was a project I created for the Australian Scrapbooking Ideas magazine, using a Pringles can as the base.
PROJECT 3: DREAM CATCHER
I have recently started creating dream catchers. This is the very first one I ever created, and it now hangs proudly in my youngest daughter's bedroom. I must have done something right, as she is not a fan of anything pink, but she couldn't wait to claim this as her own.
PROJECT 4: PRECIOUS FRAME
I have recently started buying old and unwanted frames, and repainting and decorating them. This was my very first attempt with an old brown and boring frame. It now has a second lease of life.
PROJECT 5: HAND-MADE BRACELET
A girl has to make a living somehow, so I decided to learn how to create bracelets (and other jewellery items), and I now sell these items in my Etsy store (Jules & Bling).
PROJECT 6: HAND-MADE BRACELET
Here's another of my jewellery creations. Have I mentioned how much enjoyment I get out of creating these? I love playing with the colours and embellishments.
PROJECT 7: LAZY SUMMER DAYS LAYOUT
What can I say? I love colour!!! Mix it with some texture and layers, and the results can be spectacular.
PROJECT 9: ADORE LAYOUT
There's something addictive about layering flowers in-between layers of paper. I think it's the illusion of depth that makes it truly magical.
PROJECT 11: WHAT MAKES YOU BEAUTIFUL LAYOUT
Sometimes, it's the border that makes and determines the layout. Finish with spray mist, flowers and bling, and you have a gorgeous feminine page.
PROJECT 12: I SMILE BECAUSE OF YOU LAYOUT
I have always been a fan of colour, and unusual colour combinations. This layout was no exception. I tend to gravitate towards bright and bold.
PROJECT 13: FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS LAYOUT
Sometimes, less is more. White space will never go out of fashion. :)
