I think everyone in my world knows how much of a fan I am of Hambly Screenprints. My friends call me Hambly girl.. anyone who takes a class with me knows that I will add something of Hambly to the project. Its like my little signature. The rub on owls are my favorite thing to add to each project, its my buddy. So, I was very excited to see they announced a design team call. Its a dream of mine to work with Hambly. Not only do I love their products, but I love the company. I have had the pleasure of touring the factory twice and I was blown away by the people, dedication and "family" atmosphere I saw. People had been working the machines for years and everyone had such a great smile on their face.
I love to work outside the box, try new things and work with products that are off the beaten path, Hambly is a perfect fit for me. There is no other Paper company I'd rather work for. I could have pulled any project out of my stash for this submission, but I became so inspired that I created a few just for them. In the next few days, I'll share one at a time, cause I think they are so special. I hope I can make them laugh and I hope I can stand out from the hundreds of submissions, I hope they can see that little ol me really loves their products!
This first project is inspired by Lisa Super, who is my collage queen! She is the person who introduced me to collage.. and I am loving adding my own spin to it. I love to mix new modern products with the vintage collage items. This is the Hambly Bust, and I have combined the beautiful Hambly papers and overlays with some of my vintage finds to come up with this beauty. She has a mini tag album around her neck and beautiful Hambly butterflies adorning her skirt. I think its a perfect mix of old meets new and will bring a different look for Hambly.
