Design Team Project #1 .... Featuring Graphic 45

 Good morning everyone .... Gillian here with the first of a few projects this week featuring Graphic 45 (squeal) ... despite loving this range for some time now, I actually didn't own any G45 until now!! This month the Design Team will be working with  the "Olde Curiosity Shoppe" line.

First things first though, on behalf of the Design Team I just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to all of you who stopped by the blog last month, your comments are so much appreciated, and thank you all for your kind words re Hel's joining Snazzy's. Each month Mr Random.Org picks one lucky person to win a prize .... this month there were 62 eligible entries ...
 

so without further ado the winner is ....


#27 = Lucy Edmonson .... Lucy can you e-mail me with your details and your preferred stamp choice from either Vol 1 or Vol 2 London Collection.

Don't forget to leave a comment on this post to be in with a chance of winning this month's prize - G45 Olde Curiosity 8x8 Paper Pad.

okay dokey so onto my 1st project .....

I started out using a Framed Canvas 20x20 (Art No 226500) that we were giving in our consumables box. I used Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber (Pitch Black) to paint the canvas.


I then used the following various papers from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe 8x8 paper pad (Mercurial Masterpiece, Counting Down, Olde Curiosity Shoppe & Butterfly Specifics).

The wooden embellishments (watch face & dial) are by Prima.


I used the bottle & label images from G45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe collection Plate 1 which have been stamped using Archival Ink (Jet Black).


The optical lense is from my own stash.


I have used various tags from the Collection Tags pack, the metal clothes peg is also from G45. The faux metal screw brads are from Creative Expressions which are also available from Snazzy's.


I have added some Distress Re Inker (Rusty Hinge) to the Ideaology Cork Vial bottle, again the label & paper bottle is using the stamp set above.


 The back is simply decorated with more of the papers.

I will be back mid-week with another project, until then thanks for taking the time to stop by. x

Wow, fabulous first project to kick of this month Gilly. I love all the elements you've included. It's just as you would imagine a curiosity shoppe to be and I'd love to visit. These gorgeous papers have so many facets, are so interesting and such beautiful colours. They're great to work with as your project shows. Looking forward to your next piece.

Hugs
