Graphic 45 makes some of the most beautiful papers. Last week, I played a bit with some of the Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue collection.
I used 1 Oceana, 1 Seaside Holiday, 2 Island Jewel and 1 cream cardstock. I also used somStampin'Up Stampin'Dimensionals, Creative Memories chalking ink in brown, a black gel pen, a white UniBall pen and some jewels. The flowers in the upper right hand corner are popped up. The ones on the left hand side are just glued down. I love these wonderful colors and patterns. Graphic 45 lends itself to lots of fussycutting and layering. Maxine Hodges - owner of the Scrapbook Page in Barboursville, WV, and her talented crafters have taught me so much about looking at paper and "listening" to what it tells you. Hope this inspires you to try to listen to what paper is telling you soon.
