That {Cheshire} Grin

On this page I am keeping all my previously published and competition winning LOs and projects... not that there is a HUGE amount of them... but just 'cause I wanna! ;)

This wall hanging was for Scrapbooking Memories Magazine's PINK EDITION 11.9 (October 2009?).  In continuing support of breast cancer awareness the magazine donates a percentage of every copy of this special issue sold at Australian news agencies, major chain stores and supermarkets to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  It was supposed to be donated to a cancer ward... I am not sure which... sort of hoping someone can tell me where it ended up?   

It consists of 9 3x3" canvases mounted onto a fabric covered backboard which in turn was covered in wire mesh.  I painted the mini canvases with pink acrylic paint and then embellished with rub ons, fabric, chipboard, charms, ribbon, flowers, German Scrap and stamping.  I loved how it turned out and I so hope it brings a smile to someone who needs it one day.  

These LOs were for my Master's Feature Article about Scrapping Your Teens... Issue 11.8 (September 2009?).  Not all of them were published.

I originally did this LO for a feature with Lusi Austin in Australian Scrapbook Creations... but in the meantime I entered (and won) the Scrapbooking Memories Masters Award so I was required to sign an exclusivity contract.  The LO was then used for a Scrap the Girls Challenge and then it was eventually picked up for publication by Scrapbooking Memories... so it got there in the end! ;)  The challenge was to feature textures on your LO... you had to use a little bit of everything... plastic, metal, fabric, chipboard, cardstock, patterned paper, felt, buttons...  I am a more is more kinda girl! ;)

These were my winning Embellished IDOL 2008 layouts...

These were my winning Scrap World, Back to Reality Project 2007 LOs...
