My Final Submission for the Graphic 45 DT Call

Yes finally, it has been all done up... 3 projects within these 2 weeks and a video describing my 3 projects... Phew!!! Sweat!!! Videoing is more difficult than I expected... It took me the entire morning and afternoon filming and narrating yesterday... Pretty stressful 'cos I kept forgetting what I was going to say... Even I've written down my script, I ended up missing some parts 'cos at that very point I couldn't read my own handwriting... Some parts I stuttered as I tried to figure out what I've written.. Haha... But that's all over and come to think about it, it's quite fun!!

Now it's the waiting period for the final announcement on 21st April... Keeping my fingers cross... And here... TaaaDaaa!!! My final submission video on my YouTube channel... You may want to view the video in full screen in order to see the annotations well...


Here are the more additional details and pictures on the 3 projects I've done for this final submission:

Project 1: Oriental Bird Song Altered Wedding Album Cover
While creating this, something happened... As I was concerned that I couldn't finish the project in time, I actually brought this project to school to complete it... Never did I expected, I accidentally spilled coffee over all my fussy cuts... Before I could react, one of my classmates who knew I'm rushing for this final submission reacted faster than I did... She was like, "Quick!! Save the project first!!" and there she came and "rescued" my fussy cuts... LOL!!!

Seriously the coffee literally soaked itself into my fussy cuts and they were all wet... As much as I'd like to recut them but after a while I decided to flat dry them and use them instead... Besides the strong coffee smell, it does stains my fussy cuts quite well which eliminate the need to distress them with distress ink...

Project 2: Tropical Travelogue Book Art Display
This project is pretty time consuming, mainly the creating of the word pattern on Photoshop to measuring to folding of each pages... It's a total of 335 pages, as in each individual sheet for this book... Total 670 printed pages... Took me hours to complete this book art before I can start embellishing...

I wrapped the book cover using the matching fabric by Wilmington Prints as fabric serves as a stronger backing over paper... More than just a display art piece, I could use them to display my photos and memorabilia...

Project 3: Botanical Tea Teapot Wardrobe
Wanted something fun and interesting, I built this clear see-through teapot wardrobe from scratch using the teapot acrylic album and 12X12 sheet from my Clear Scraps design team package... To go with this wardrobe, I handmade a couple of fashion teabags, mainly blouses and dresses with 4 different floral favours...

As a guest for this tea party, you can "shop" for your favourite clothing and "try" it on... Not only that, this little wardrobe gives me the flexibility to display various tea favours in those handmade fashion teabags from time to time when I've guests coming over for tea... Something exclusive and unique...
