Couture Creations 2016/17 Design Team Audition

I have to say that I am loving the opportunity to apply again for the Couture Creations Design Team. I have spent the last year cultivating my creative flair and working outside of my comfort zone and that is due to being part of such an amazing team and working with some truly awesome women. For that I have to thank everyone at ArtDeco Creations for the privilege of working on the 2015-2016 Design Team.

I love that they are an Australian company, so I get to support Australian craft! The products are amazing and of great quality so it is and has been a pleasure to work with them.

Enough said.... Below are my five designs that showcase my use and love of Couture Creations products. 

For my 1st Creation I have used the stunningly beautiful Australiana collection by Ultimate Crafts and designed by Denise Boddey. I have used a mix of dies from both current and past Couture Creations collections. Using some machine stitching, fussy cutting, ribbon and a hessian flower rounds off my card.

My 2nd Creation is a layout that I have done of my cute niece Lilli. I have played around with gesso, paint and texture paste making my own stencil using one of my Couture Creations dies.

I am so so in love with the Magnolia Lane Drifting Feather that it has once again appeared in a layout. You will also notice that I have used some of the Ultimate Crafts Quick Release paper in the background.

My 3rd Creation is a mini canvas. I am enjoying using mixed media on some of my projects and now starting to feel more confident using them. This project is definitely out there, but I love the colour combination of the blue with the purple.

Magnolia Lane has some stunning dies and I love the leaves that are part of the Rose Cutting set. All the leaves were heat embossed using several different colours of embossing powder. I added some Inka Gold to the leaves and other areas to soften and blend some of the colours.


The 4th Creation is a wedding invitation and place setting combination using a couple of dies.  I have my younger brother's upcoming wedding in October as my inspiration as I can see their wedding being a very classy and elegant affair. The use of gold with navy is extremely striking.

My 5th and Final creation my second layout for the Design Team call. 
I have continued my love of texture paste on this layout. The Petite Doilies dies have been enhanced with stamping and then embossed.

Below are a couple of photos showing the detail on the doilies that line the bottom of the layout.

More Creations
I have also included a couple of other creations that I have done during the last 6 months, including a few of my favourite Design Team creations from last year that I did.

Thank you so much for taking the time to view my Audition. I have loved creating everything you see.
I would feel so blessed to be part of the 2016-2017 Design Team team. I truly love this company and their wonderful ranges of products.

I would also like to wish everyone that applies the very best of luck. Maybe one day we could be working together creating some amazing projects.
