Graphic 45 
Hallowe'en in Wonderland
The Magic of Oz
Pumpkin Man

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing a 3D paper Pumpkin Man
featuring a combination of three
stunning Graphic 45 collections namely 
Hallowe'en in Wonderland DCE, Kaleidoscope
 and The Magic of Oz DCE.

 My inspiration for this piece I found 
on Pinterest. I came across some
 cute pictures of which some parts 
are similar and I just had to make
 one! I have used a few different 
cut files on my Silhouette to put it all
 together. I added some chipboard,
 die-cut bows, fussy-cut elements from the
collections, flat back pearls, pins, metal
embellishments and bakers twine.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

 Add black cardstock behind the face before
gluing the box together. Adhere the tabs 
with red double sided tape and assemble 

Cut a witch hat from the Kaleidoscope 
collection. Adhere the tabs with red double

 the tabs with red double sided tape
 and assemble accordingly. Also cut two

 will be used for the legs.

from the collections for decoration.

bottom piece of the 
pumpkin and make a bow.

Re-Design with Prima 
Moulds + Darcelle Collection 

Prima has so MANY gorgeous 
moulds and toady we are showing 
some them off in our projects.
 I have created this canvas featuring
 the lovely Darcelle collection along
 with some Re-Design with Prima 
moulds and the pretty Darcelle mould. 
It is so much fun to make your own
 embellishments. I have prepped my
 canvas with white gesso and coloured 
the background with Artisan powders. 
I have prepped my moulded 
embellishments with white gesso too
 and altered them with Finnabair's paints.
 I have torn lots of pieces of paper from
 the A4 paper pad and layered them. 
Next I added the torn paper cluster onto
 the moulded embellishments some 
of which I tucked in behind the paper 
pieces. I added a quote from the
 collection and then adorned the rest 
of the canvas with the collection's
 S T U N N I N G flowers, die-cut leaves
 and some paint splatters.

Graphic 45 
The Magic of OZ
Mixed Media Layout
'the Magic of OZ' 

Hello dear G45ers! 
Happy to share with you my #G45Technique 
project this month featuring the lovely 
The Magic of Oz Deluxe Collector's Edition.

This collection made its appearance
 before I started my papercrafting 
journey and I am beyond thrilled to see 
it as a DCE. The patterns,colours and 
imagery are all just fabulous. I love
 everything about it! It is such 
a fun line to work with!

Today we will be exploring the
  Graphic 45 Decades Dye Ink pads
on a watercolor paper background. I
have fussy-cut all the cute elements
 from the signature page to tell the story.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Other Supplies used:
Watercolor Paper
Spray Bottle with water
Chipboard Circles and Spider Webs
Embossing Powder
Gold Metallique Wax
Yellow Paint
Purple and Black Paint
Sand Texture Paste
Brick Stencil
Foam Board/Cardboard
Circle Punch

Fussy-cut all the elements from the
 signature page The Magic of Oz 
and some of the compass circles from
 the Wicked! page. Punch a few 
circles from the left over pieces from 
the signature page using a circle

Ink the sides of the watercolor paper
 with the rustic orange ink pad. Make 
sure to leave some open spaces
 in between for the other 
two colours.
Tip: Use the fussy-cut title as a
 guideline when inking, thus making
sure how much colour you want to
 add and where.

Next randomly ink the other two
 colours French lilac and Venetian lace
in the open spaces whilst blending 
the colours.

Spray the inked edges with water
 and heat dry.
Tip: You can dab off some of the
 excess water with a paper towel if 
you wish. You could also tilt the page
from side to side if you want the ink
 to run on the page.

The result of the colours on the 
watercolor paper once it is dry. 

Add a brick wall or in this case a yellow
 brick road at the bottom of the page. Mix 
some sand texture paste with yellow
 paint. Apply this to the background over 
a brick stencil. Leave to dry. Lightly 
brush the 'bricks' with gold metallique wax.

Heat emboss the chipboard spider 
webs with distress embossing 
powder in black soot, lightly brush 
gold metallique wax on top. Heat 
emboss the circles with yellow.

Adhere all the fussy-cut pieces together. 
Place some foam board or cardboard 
behind the solid piece for dimension.
 Glue to the page.
Tip: Remember to add paint splatters
 to the page before adhering the 
fussy-cut cluster.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and 
that it has inspired you to pull 
out those fabulous Graphic 45 ink 
pads and create your own 
coloured background.

Re-Design with Prima
Re-Design Petites +
Apricot Honey Collection
Altered Bicycle Frame

I love the Re-Design with Prima products.
 This DIY line is so versatile, you do no
necessarily need to just use these amazing 
products on home decor or furniture but you 
can incorporate them into your paper 
crafts too. Today I am sharing an Altered
 Bicycle Frame featuring the gorgeous 
Apricot Honey collection along with some
 fabulous Re-Design with Prima moulded
 embellishments and a decor transfer. I 
painted the bicycle white. Next I  cut up my 
Floral Home transfer into smaller pieces
 (the pieces I wanted to use) and then just
simply applied them to the round edges of
 the frame. I made some moulded 
embellishments with a few of the moulds
 which I prepped with white gesso. Next
I painted some of them with Impasto
 paint and chalk paste. The rest I lightly dry
 brushed with Artisan powder. I adorned
 the frame with die-cut leaves, fussy-cut
 butterflies, string, metal keys, pretty flowers
 from the collection, tickets and pearls.
