Trim Tin - New Prima Laces & Trims

Hello again! I have some more exciting new Prima goodness to share with you today. Time for new trims and lace! Hop over to the Prima blog for the full reveal and somefantastic samples :)

 Check out these ttunning new trims and lace...

And some new jute trims...aren't they colours just fabulous?!

So now  to give you the low down on this project! Starting out with a tin lid, I layered lengths of trims and lace inside, then topped with a generous coat of gesso. I spritzed this background with a selection of Color Bloom mists (see info at the bottom of the post).

I've used a mini canvas turned upside down in the middle of the tin, which I decorated with lace and added a scrap of denim in the recess.  Then I had fun with a selection of the jute trims which I topped with a styrofoam/polystyrene heart decorated with these awesome resin wings, jean plate and wire.

See you later and have a great day!

Rusty Kingdom - New Prima Mixed Media Products

Hey everyone! I'm back today to share this altered item created for Prima using the new Finnabair Mixed Media Products. These products are uber exciting!

And this is my altered "beast" using these fab new Art Extravagance Speciality Pastes!

Along with the brand new Art Basics Pastes;

This was created using upcycled items which included an old bike chain, chicken wire and an old spark plug along with lots of texture via the new pastes. I've fashioned the background as a "brick wall ", using oblongs of thick card covered in Art basics Modeling paste and coloured using Color Bloom mists.

A close up; see the wire details and wonderful  Art Ingredients Mica Flakes - these will be an awesome addition to your mixed media projects!

I created the butterfly with vellum by cutting an outline shape and tracing the new Elementals stencils (Netting and Lace) onto it. Next I cut the stencil details out with a craft knife and addded mists, paint and stamped details. For full info and some gorgeous samples head over to the Prima blog!

Catching The Butterfly - New Prima Forever Green Collection

Hi everyone! Hoping you're all having a great day :) I have a creation to share with you using this beautious *new* Forever Green collection from Prima. Wood, butterflies, mushrooms, birds ..... it's certainly ticked all my boxes!

And here we have the altered wood stump...

This wood stump has been covered in strips of Nature's Bounty paper, which I've distressed for a Silver Birch kind of effect. The wooden centre frame is made from twigs and a box from some Prima wooden embellies!

A wooden disc embellishment has been stamped  and topped with an acetate window and part of an old clock face which "captures" the butterfly.

A host of gorgeous new Prima flowers which work alongside some natural Silver Birch bark and some Ingvild Bolme Junkyard findings.

To see the full collection plus some wonderful DT samples, head over to the Prima blog!

Fly Me Away - Prima BAP

Hello everyone! I have my first Prima assignment to share with you today. Woo!


This month's fab sketch was created by Kasia K . Isn't it awesome?! I loved the paint sweeps and the ink drips (obviously ;) )

And this is what I came up with...

I've used lots of sweeps of gesso and added some texture from this very cool new Prima mask (see details below). The hot hair balloons dotted around have been cut from a sheet of "Montgolfiere" paper,which I've curved with scissors for dimension and stuck down only the edges.

Some beautiful new flowers....and my customary mesh layered with strips of paper.  

A close up of the mask texture which I've highlighted with Color Bloom mists.I think all those sweeps are perfect for the hot hair balloons! Please hop over to the blog for more wonderful inspiration :)
