I am so excited to introduce you to creative team member Jennifer Beason today! Can I just say...brace yourselves...you are about to be blown away! Jennifer's trademark is creating one-of-a-kind projects that are completely outside the box. So outside the box...you will have to see it to believe it. Jennifer loves to use bright cheerful colors and loves to alter objects, create paper mache works of art, mini albums, and whatever she can put her signature twist on. She loves detail to the point of amazement. Get ready for being whisked away into the imagination of Jenni B...
Okay...are you ready for this...Jennifer constructed this cute funky reindeer from head to toe using paper mache, fabric, tulle, feathers, lace, and more! Isn't that crazy fun! Jennifer even used a few of my Silhouette files to add some of the fun details.
Check out the reindeer's shoes (yes...some deer wear shoes...the same kind that go shopping in the mall for Christmas gifts) she used part of my Silhouette "Laurel Leaf - Border Set" for the lace up part of the boots and around the top of the boot, she used the negative area of the Silhouette file "Border Dripping Circle" shown in pink paper.
Here are a few close-ups. The eyes were cut from my "Animal Eyes" Silhouette file. After cutting them on the machine, she used colored pencil and markers to add some more detail.
Here you can see how she used the "Dripping Circles Border" Silhouette digital die file to create the jacket detailing. She did this by using two over-lapped rows of the border and added Trinket Pins in the center of each circle to make a closure.Above, you can see how she used my 1 Piece Leaf Cluster Silhouette die set on the hat, and more of the (negative) Dripping Circle Border around the edge of the hat. I love the curved triangles that create a jester feel to the deer's hat. Crazy fun! To check out more details on this project...go here.
Now check out this cute penguin! Jennifer says that this piece was inspired by her son watching a lot of Penguins of Madagascar lately. Isn't this project totally amazing! Yikes! The detail is mind-blowing! She used her Silhouette machine to create a lot of the details on this piece. For this project she used two of my Silhouette files. The main one she used was the irregular scalloped border from my Scalloped Circle Border File Set. She used the border to cover most of the penguin body and head. The red border on the side of the box is also a Silhouette die set called: Wacky Borders set.
Here is a close up on the penguins head...okay...wipe the drool now...totally mind-blowing, isn't it!
Here is a side view of this cute penguin...love the detail of the fish dangling from his wing. Too cute!
Here is the base of the box...Jennifer covered the top of the box with my Swirls Holey Cardstock from Creative Imaginations. Love those colorful snowballs she stacked there...fun! You can view more details here.
Okay, now that I've introduced you to Jennifer...I know you will want to follow her design work on her blog. She is constantly coming up with new and unusual craft ideas. It's a total visual smorgasbord of inspiration.
