Graphic 45 Design Team 2013 Audition

This past year as a 2012 Graphic 45 design team member went by so fast! It was the most amazing year for me EVER as a designer. My dream of designing for my all-time favorite paper company came true! That said, I could not pass up the chance to keep the dream alive. ♥ Those of you who have tried out for the Graphic 45 design team know that the running is fierce. There are so many amazingly talented designers all over the world and several hundred of them try out for the Graphic 45 team every year. That says a lot about the Graphic 45 company, the products and the wonderful family behind the name. It is quite humbling to be selected, but know this.... I am a complete nervous wreck as I type this!! I am only one of the several hundreds (thousands) submitting for the Graphic 45 design team for 2013. I will keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best! ♥

So without further adieu, this is my submission for the 2013 Graphic 45 Design Team. The following 8 projects below best represent me as an artist and my love of Graphic 45. Graphic 45 papers/products are so fun to work with, it's not difficult to be inspired. Even the last 2 non-Graphic 45 projects have G45 metal Staples on them! ♥

Project #1

Thank you so much for taking a peek at my submission. I have my fingers and toes crossed! Good luck to all! ♥

Great projects, loving recent mixed media! Gosh, a dt member at G45, you have been such an inspiration this year, they'd be nuts not to let that continue!! My wildest dreams include building my 'attempts' up to a calibre worthy of G45. Hope they aren't going anywhere for at least 20 years +. Lol. All the best. Caroline :)
