Gallery Idol 2014

I decided that it was time to give a go for the Gallery Idol 2014 auditions!




As the flickr gallery grew larger and I saw there was so much talent there I wasn't sure if I should, but I took a bit of my own advice that I have given other's this year and said "I have nothing to lose"!

The audition challenge was to use washi tape in a creative way.  I knew right away I wanted to die cut something from washi so I chose some vibrant colours and started by die cutting the Love Notes Confetti Cut frame from Reverse Confetti, adding the centre from Class Act and banner from Tag Me. The sentiment is from the new You Make Me Smile set! I finished it off with two washi die cut flowers from Petals n' Posies.

So here is my washi card audition.
Good luck to all of the other auditions in the 2014 Gallery Idol Flickr Gallery!

So pretty!
Each year I'm tempted to try out for Gallery Idol. And each year I don't do it. One of these years I'll get up the nerve to do it!
I'm thrilled that you're giving it a go. You are so very talented!!!
