So to continue yesterday's story of reminiscing through Art.
We had gotten to some small part of the artwork created during my time at Heartfelt on the team. Next I showed them some of my own drawings and they asked me to join them as one of their contributing artists and since then I have contributed art for several collections including this one
here . It is very different in that my brief was to do some more masculine but feminine cogs and flowers , hmmmm you say well I think I managed, some of the drawings were very detailed and took ageeeesss, like this one.
So back to the journey , at this stage I was also designing cards for a team called Memory Maze lazor cuts in Australia which was a 6 month term and they had the most intricate little chippie pieces to include in creations, below is a few of the cards I created for them during my term Feb-July 2013 , I carried on until Aug-Sept actually. So here is some of the work I created for them during my term.
I used their intricate chippie pieces for the feathers and best wishes on this one.
These two can only be classed as cutesy cards and , Memory maze also had some items they call, "Stackums", which to us is Decoupage , so I created a box and added some decoupage to the top and some Easter goodies inside and a cutesy 'It's a boy' card.
I was well and truly designing lots of cards for Craftwork Cards over on their blog all the way through the above and here are just a few of those designs too.
Something a little different .
This was a really vintage Christmas collection.
I used one of their 6x6 boxes and decorated it here in my own way.
A large box frame and the botanica collection.
As you can imagine there was many many more .
So then , I went to Aly Paly for the first time at their craft show and I met the lovely Helen and Mark from Visible Image. We had a lovely chat and I got in touch with them as soon as I saw they were having a Design team call and tried out for the team. Lucky enough I got through and the rest as they say is history, You have all seen many many of the creations but here is just a few of my favourites.
Thinking of you.
I loved the colours in this one.
I loooooove this one.
I was also waiting for Creative Expressions to have a Team call for around 6 Months and finally they had a call in Oct 2013 and I entered and got chosen to be on the team. I also was asked to do some tv work by our Sue which was a great day for me, I had never thought of doing tv things I just knew I wanted to teach and inspire and have a few ways to interact with lots of lovely crafters. So I am well on my way.
I will share more items on the 2nd post later this afternoon , I am only leaving the drawing a little longer to give all the regulars a chance to get on and be involved and also any new people who would like to come and join our family.
so good luck to everyone don't forget subscribe and leave a comment on yesterdays post to be in with a chance to pick up some super fabby prizes..
