Well my friends, today I am sharing the last of my Artisan Award projects. It was fun to revisit each project with all of you (and try to remember exactly what I did to make each of them,lol!). I have really enjoyed looking at everyone else's projects and reading all the little details that went into making each one, details that are so easily missed when you are looking at them from 8 feet away.
If you have been following along you should have arrived here from the very talented Laura Mellinger's blog, and if not there is a full list of all of the blog's at the end of this post, so be sure to check out their amazing projects.
The last project that I am sharing today is my final 3D. Now I think I know where my strengths and weaknesses lie when it comes to my skills in paper crafting. I am am not a 3D rock star like my fellow Artisan winners. So I knew when I was figuring out what I was going to make that it would not be some phenomel structure or amazing sewing project. I knew it had to reflect me and what I was capable of and hopefully that would be enough. I decided to focus on trend, composition, and trying to use something in an innovative way.
So I created this banner and added my favourite-Pinwheels!
I know it would be so much better if I had a picture of it hanging up,but.... you guessed it this was taken at the UPS store right before it was sent off! Now please do not think that I did not put a lot of time and effort into my projects because some were created last minute-it is just how my brain works:) I see something in my head and then create in spurts. Fortunately for me the 3D projects just came to me and I was then able to sit and create them. Trust me in the days leading up to that final night I did not think everything would be finished on time.
So on to the banner! I used the now retired Pennant Die and instead of placing the scored side of the card stock to the left, I placed it to the right so it created a forked pennant rather then a triangular one. The pennant was made from Textured Pacific Point card stock and then I decorated it with pinwheels made from the Celebrations Designer Series Paper and matching Quick Accents. The letters for the word PARTY were created in My Digital Studio using the Broadsheet Alphabet Download, I added a drop shadow to each letter in Pacific Point to help make the letters pop. One of the best things about My Digital Studio is that you can resize any of the stamps. So I was able to create the letters large enough for my banner and colour match my card stock-love it!
And now for a recap of the the last 10 days here is a picture of all of my projects as they were displayed at Convention:
Now be sure to hop on over to Heather Stevens blog and her amazing project!
And here is the list and order of the full hop:
Have a great weekend and I should be back on Monday with something new to share:)
