A Fond Graphic 45 Farewell to Andrew Roberts!

Eerie tale card 3

Today is a bittersweet day here on the blog. We begin our farewells for our absolutely incredible 2014-2015 Design Team. We are so in awe of these wonderful designers and we will miss each and every one we are saying farewell to this year. This Monday, we say our first goodbye to the amazing Andrew Roberts. Andrew's love for creating, his family, and Graphic 45 shows through every single project he creates. He has such a brilliant, distinctive style and we will miss it so much on our team. Today, we are going to share a new project from Andrew, and just some of the highlights of his time on our team. 

First, we have Andrew's new An Eerie Tale card and tutorial. Andrew has such a distinctive gift for layers and eye-catching symmetry in his projects.

"The gorgeous vintage imagery of graphic 45 papers is very hard to resist. Eerie tale is no exception. It is not your traditional Halloween collection which made it a great collection to create with . I made a non halloween themed card using the beautiful rose and pumpkin image. This collection is a perfect autumn collection and we are in the heart of autumn here in Australia. I love the the bold oranges and they work wonderful with metallic embellishments.

Tip: Have you tried using graphic 45 signature series cardstock with your favorite collection. The colors are a perfect match." ~Andrew

This was a fabulous set of tags Andrew made for his children. We love how he used so many collections to make each one perfectly personalized.

Andrew makes the best Steampunk projects. He took an old VHS case to make this altered box and mini while displaying the imagery of Steampunk Spells. Wow! This is awesome.

You will be sorely missed when I visit the G45 blog! You are a fabulous combination of artist and glorious engineer. Your designs are full of details and layers, and yet, there is that element of order that keeps the work from seeming unruly and a bit hard on the eyes and brain.

Thank you too for your generosity of spirit. I've tried so many times to leave comments, but my email conspires to return all my comments sent via email.

I will be following you, so this is not 'goodbye', just an opportunity to let you know how very much you are enjoyed. A big and warm thank you!
