We love papercrafting for many reason, but one of them is that it is always timeless. To prove this to you Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador, Crêté Angélique aka Boule de scrap has created an elegant Romantic Paper Wall Hanging that would look gorgeous in any home. This piece has been inspired by our #G45Selfie Challenge. To help us get to know the new Ambassadors we have asked them to join our June #G45Selfie Challenge.
For this challenge we want you to create a ‘Self-Portrait’ using Graphic 45 product (Photo of yourself not required, just create a project that reflects you and your favorite medium).
Crêté Angélique aka Boule de scrap – France
2021-2022 Graphic 45 Brand Ambassador
“My name is Angelique Crêté, I’m 40 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 Graphic45 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.
I am delighted to be working with the team for a second year.
This year will be even more creative, I am preparing a lot of surprises, 3D creations and tutorials for you.
Moreover, if you want me to make a creation in particular, do not hesitate to offer me your ideas in comments.
Romantic Wall Hanging Self-Portrait
Hi everyone, today I present to you my Self-portrait project.
Last year, I presented you with a creation that represented my creative styles, which you can rediscover here.
This new creation presents more of my personality, dreamy, creative and romantic.
This is a shabby, soft and romantic wall hanging, like the collection I used for this creation, Le Romantique Deluxe Collector’s Edition.
Graphic 45 Supplies:
• 2 each of twelve double-sided 12 x 12-Inch papers (24 total)
• 27 die-cut chipboard embellishments
• stickers on two 6 x 12-Inch sheets
Lace, ribbons, wool
Step by Step Tutorial:
The first step will be to create the fringes of our awakening wall hanging. For this, you can use wool (about a pelotte), lace, ribbons, cords … But also why not more traditional, with feathers and pearls.
Each woolen thread measures 100 cm (39,37 pouces). As we are going to fold them in half to tie them, the threads will only be 50 cm long (19.685 pouce).
We attach these to the circle making a loop.
Follow the detailed photos.
The second step will be to decorate our circle. For this, we will use our papers as much as possible.
We cut a circle (to your dimensions), and the maximum number of flowers and leaves. For that, I used a whole paper.
We glue our circle of paper on the back, and the flowers and leaves around it.
The last step will be to decorate the center of your circle. I used a plaster frame to highlight the collection’s sublime chipboards.
I hope this project, simple and quick to carry out, will inspire you. I can’t wait to discover your creations.
