Graphic 45 Design Team 2012 Audition

Here are my 6 submissions, I hope you like them.
Project #1
For my first project I wanted to make something that would help preserve memories. I created a shadowbox with chipboard and a dollar store frame.
Graphic 45’s Le Romantique “My Beloved” paper was perfect for this project. I altered a black plastic comb and mirror set.
First I painted them with Adirondack Gold Mixatives, then a light coat of Folk Art Champagne paint. It gave the set a real vintage look which is what I was wanting.
I made a choker from an embellishment, pearls, and mesh bling and also made a vintage looking hair comb with wire, mesh bling, and loose bling.
I colored up some I Am Roses with Fuzzy Navel and A Bit O Bubbly Starburst, and colored some leaves with My Mojito Green Starburst.
Here is my project
I call it 
“Just As She Left It”
Project #2
“Island Fever”
I wanted to create a necklace that was warm & bright like the Tropical Travelogue paper stack
I grabbed some trims, embellishments, Starbursts, and loose bling.
You may recognize the embellishment since it was made with “Steampunk Debutante” with some glossy accents.
I colored the laces, trims, and flowers with Blue Hawaii Blue, Yellow Rose of Texas, and Bells of Irelend Green Starbursts.
Project #3
I decided to alter a plain lamp shade.
I colored it with Midnight Rendezvous Raven Starburst & Cactus Gold Glitz Spritz.
I colored some pink trim with Adirondack Gold Mixatives and started adhering trim, pearls, and some brooches I made.
Project #4
“Just In Time”
I made a bridal hat with chipboard, lace, flowers, pearls, paint, Starbursts, and a clock.
Here it is hanging on my wall, I added 3′ of tule.
Project #5
“Fairy Daughter”
I wanted to change a frame I received as a gift to better suit my style.
I added a beautiful piece of paper I found in my stash and then started coloring some flowers with Magical Micas. I added some glitter glue to my daughters photo and painted her Fairy costume with Magical micas.
Project #6
“Pretty & Smart”
I made a Top Hat desk organizer. I constructed the hat from chipboard. This Top Hat has a ruler, clock, pen, calculator, and scissors all hidden inside.

I added some beautiful paper, trims, flowers, embellishments, and feathers. I wanted this hat to have hidden treasures that would be beautiful in the hat as well as out of the hat.
