Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador 2020-2021
My name is Angelique Crête, I'm 39 and I'm French. I live in a village close to Brest, close to the sea, which is called Plouescat with my two children.
I work on a farm, where we grow strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and tomatoes.
My wonderful work allows me to enjoy the most beautiful moments of childhood of my children, and give me time to scrapbooking, perfect combination of all my passions, photography, paper sculpture, and many others. Because this passion constantly evolving allowing me to try new techniques and take still fun to capture our wonderful family times.
I have the chance also to teach my passion during workshop with adults but also to introduce younger. I love sharing, this is why I created many tutorials pictures or videos that I shared on my social networks for free. It is a real pleasure to see the achievements of others thereafter, inspired by my tutorials.
I do not stop to a design style, I touch everything and I evolve according inspiration. I can create a series of cards, to layouts, altered objects, mini-album, or my favorite pastime of time creating objects completely paper, paper sculptures. This is one of my biggest strengths of design, be versatile and able to adapt myself to my inspiration, inspiration comes largely Graphic 45 papers.
By cons, it is true that I evolve more easily in the world of vintage, the world of shabby. I have a great passion for it, for old things, old posters, old photos, old movies, old toys, short a source of endless inspiration.
I like to create original projects, of the plan design, and of the conception of paper project.
Altered Art Canvas
Today I am happy to present my very first project to you. I hope you like it, it's like I presented you a part of me.
My project is my self-portrait, a project that represents my style of creation, but also my personality.
You can find the three styles that I like, vintage, shabby, and steampunk.
You also discover a little bit about me, me as a child, and me today. My femininity through papers and flowers. My creativity through decoration. My passions by the theme of the project.
The collection "An Eerie Tale" is a real wonder. It's a series of creating with her, and married perfectly with my project." ~Boule de Scrap
Step by Step Tutorial:
The first step will be to reproduce the templates on cardboard. We cut and protect the edges with kraft paper.
On our palette, we will stick our "You Bewitch Me" paper. We will age and ink the edges with our Graphic45 ink.
While it dries, we will prepare some decorations for our palette of painter. We are going to cover with paper a round box, and paint brushes.
We decorate with our creations, with embellishments, as well as handmade roses.
We are going to paint and cover with paper a crate and an easel. The crate will serve as a base for our palette.
We will do the same with cardboard letters.
Finally, we come to decorate our project
