Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

Hello, everybody at G45.
Here are some vintage style projects I've selected to participate on the audition.

First, I'd like to show some projects I did with G45 papers. I like the way we can merge pictures with paper designs, so it seems that the picture blends in the page. See three examples of that:

Summer '06

And some close-ups with details:

Here I used G45 papers, with some distressed die cuts from October afternoon papers, thickers, flowers, pearls, and simple twine.


 And the details:

This is what I call a "paper on paper project". I basically used only paper with foam tape to make interesting accents. I used G45 papers and one brad.

The Lion

Here I used only Le cirque papers.
And the details: I used a lot of distressed paper here. And the clowns are all sticked with foam tape.
This is a ticket stamp and a paper rose:
 The cards are loose:
 I also used some stitches to provide extra details:

Great Stories

This next project doesn't have this blending effect. But it's another one I have with G45 papers.

Here I used the Magic of Oz collection papers. The background is a Bo Bunny paper, and there is also a photo base paper from Pink Paislee.

This is one of my favorite projects. I loved this art-noveau designs.

There's a lot of distress, Tim Holz tickets, an old book page, butterfly on cork paper, pearls, tea-cup base, metal brads. Around the photo I used metalic golden ink.


Mini Album
I also made a mini album for a class on Father's Day 2010. I thought that the masculine papers of  G45 were perfect for this mini. As it is an old project, it is already a bit worn, by some many people handling it. It is a 4' x 4' vertical zig-zag album.

Here's a complete view on the front and back of the album:

And to end up, let me show you other projects I have, in which I used papers from brands other that G45.

This is a new technique I created using decoupage napkins to make paper accents on the page:

In this project I used Cosmo Cricket papers:

This project has Webster's Pages papers.

It's a double page project. It was the project of the first class I tought ever. 

Well, I guess this is it. I hope I get to the next phase.
If you need any other project, or more detailed pictures of these ones, please let me know.

Thank you for the opportunity.
