Thanks for the Memories Tour Kickoff

Hello, eP fans.  By now you know that eclectic Paperie is closing it's doors.  That also means the end of the blog and the design team.

We have had a fabulous run as members of the eclectic Paperie Design Team and wish to thank you all for your interest and support over the years. With the eP blog coming to a close at the end of the month, we all wanted to do something special to celebrate the fabulous friendships, tons of inspiration from other team members, from Kim, and from all those who participated in our challenges. Each of the current DT members is taking a day to post some of her favorite makes from her time on the eclectic Paperie team. We hope you enjoy the look back.

Hi, it's Broni here and I'm kicking off our "Thanks for the Memories" tour.  I'd like to share a few of my favorite projects from my time on the eP team. 

Last Christmas I was just started to play with a Gelli plate and this Snowman Card was a favorite project of mine.


 I have learned during my time here that I really love working with vibrant colors.  I had a blast making these Altered Playing Cards:


Another project that took me out of my comfort zone was working with a canvas bag and paint to create this soft floral gift bag for a special friend.


 Yet another favorite project using vibrant colors and a material that is out of my norm is this Altered Water Bottle I created using Studio 490 Clearly For Art.


And last but not least is one of my more recent projects that took me back to my roots and my love of water color - my Water Color Flower Maiden.


I have SO enjoyed my time on the eP design team and will always treasure the memories of all the wonderful people I've had the pleasure of getting to know and "playing" alongside.  Kim has been a wonderful friend and mentor along the way.  And all of these ladies on the team have been such a great inspiration to me.  I feel like I've grown so much as an artist thanks to their kindness, friendship and encouragement.  I will truly miss these ladies and all of you fantastic fans who have been here right along with us.  Thanks so much for your loyalty, your inspiration, and your encouragement!

Now I would like to encourage all of you to stretch your imagination and to become the artist you were meant to be!

Happy crafting!

Broni, you have no idea how you have and continue to inspire me. Your gelli print snowman card totally made me get my plate out and CASE it, lol. Love all of your projects, and learned so much. xoxo
