Graphic 45 2019 Brand Ambassador Audition

Hello  everyone!!

with so much excitement i present you my projects for "Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador Audition 2019".I am a big fan of Graphic 45 and it would be a great opportunity and honor to represent one of the best paper crafting brand in the world.

I love creating all kind of projects like cards,albums,layouts ,mixed media and 3d/altered projects.For today's project i made a mixed media canvas as i feel its one of my major strength.I have used gorgeous new "Bloom" and "Garden goddess" collections for my project.

Lets see the procedure to create this canvas:

Prepare the canvas with three coats of heavy white gesso,dry in-between each coats.Once the canvas is ready apply glitter paste or modelling paste through stencils.
Spray water over the canvas and add water colors in shades of pink and green.I kept the colors very light as i wanted a soft background for the bold colors i am going to use in my composition
Fussy cut flowers from "Bloom" and "garden goddess" collection.Also cut some borders and labels from the paper collection
Stamp some leaf designs on vellum with versamark ink and heat emboss it with white embossing powder and fussy cut them.The vellum designs will be helpful to create layers with out much dimension and also gives a  soft look to your projects and most importantly does not cover the other elements as its transparent.Also die cut some leaves and flourishes with pattern papers.

To create the basic composition and layers,cut papers in few sizes. Instead of gluing each layer,group them into 2-3 layers,pin it together so that i will be easy to tuck in embellishments.Add chipboard at the back leaving half an inch all the sides.
 Now create the composition using all the elements we prepared.This is how the first layer looks.I also added few clay embellishments to add dimension
Once the basic composition is ready,add layers of flowers,fussy cut elements,chipboard embellishment etc as you like.Once all the elements has been glued,add more colors around the composition to add some depth.
Now soften the edge of the colors using white gesso so that the color transition is smooth.Also mix some gesso with water and splash it randomly all over the embellishments except the photo.
Here is some more close ups,for finishing touch i added small beads,art stones and glitters using gel medium

I have also created another cute little project,a mini shadow box featuring one of my most favorite secret garden collection.The shadow box measure 6 by 6 inches ,i love fussy cutting and this whole project is made with fussy cut elements from secret garden collection and few flowers from sweet sentiment collection.I added a lot of dimension between each elements using chipboards and foam tapes.

"Thank you Graphic 45 team for this amazing opportunity and taking time to review my projects".

Thank you for stopping by.
Happy crafting,
