Never mind, there's always next time...

I mentioned on my blog a while ago that I had entered some projects for a Design Team call (the butterfly that keeps appearing on my desk in WOYWW is a left over from one of the projects). Well I got an email,.....its wasn't good news......I didn't make it in :( 

I'm a bit disappointed but to be honest although I won't mention the company I may have been a bit ambitious for my first design team. I need to aim a bit smaller. Anyway, the good news is I can now share my designs with you guys.....

The first piece had to be based on AUTUMN. This is my entry:

and a closer look:

This has been done with acetate, alcohol inks and gilding, the outer "frame" has been made using perfect pearls.

My other entries didn't have to have a theme, apart from they should contain stamping (oops, is that a bit of a giveaway?)

This entry was very simple but took a while, as it involved a lot of masking:

Next I had a go at a tag, and although I used stamps, instead of using just ink I stamped with acrylic paint in the background. The flower is metal and was stamped in Stazon and cut out, the heart was painted in acrylic, embossed in clear a few times and then stamped into while still hot.

and a bit of a closer look:

And for my final piece I had a go at a canvas:

so now you know where the butterfly came from.............

Thanks for looking

  1. Hi Donna, these are great projects, love the gorgeous russet colours on your first one and the shading on your snow drifts is awesome! Sorry to hear you missed out on the DT but the competition must surely have been tough as your work looks fab :) Cathy x
