It was honor to be doing my first Design Team post for Helmar and they have asked me to do one themed for Anzac Day. This year it is such a special Anzac day for all of Australia and New Zealand. It is the 100th Centenary of the First World War landings, of our Anzac troops on the beaches of Gallipoli. In case you have not heard of the term Anzac before. Anzac stands for Australian and new Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day.
So to commemorate this special day I thought I would like to do an Art Journal spread. When I think of Anzac day, I always think of the poppies. So that is what I thought just had to go on my Art Journal pages. 

Teams I design for
This is just the background I created to see what the final Art Journal pages looked like, pop over to the Helmar Design Team blog post. 

Have a great day
