My Global Talent Search Journal



Here is my GTS journal.

The brief from Lilla Rogers was to create a journal with Paperchase as the client. The theme was "Old Fashioned Playground" and we had to create a 5x7 journal with items like hopscotch, tyre swings, spring horses and more.

I chose to concentrate my design on a playground at night. The idea being that all of the characters within the toys come alive at dusk.

I used hand drawn vectors to create a pattern design of all the playground toys and then incorporated a papercut and spray painted background for texture.  I wanted to give it an etherial midsummer night dream feel. I had so much fun designing for this brief, so fingers crossed for the next round.

I hope you like it and I look forward to hearing your comments.  Thank you for visiting my new website.

Each blog post will link to the Pin Hop board on Pinterest so you can easily hop about looking at all the wonderful work without getting lost. Have fun and I hope you like my work.

Thank you so much to Tina Olsson at Fyllayta, for all her time and effort in organising everything. Enjoy!

I have based my collection on the Midnight Garden theme below.
