Happy Birthday Pom! *Prima Blog Hop*


Today is Prima's fearless leader's birthday!  She is the beautiful founder and visionary force behind the whole company. Her positive "let's try it" attitude keeps Prima on the cutting edge with new products, programs, ideas, and energy! Please join in and help us SURPRISE Pom with the very HAPPIEST of BIRTHDAYS ever!!! To celebrate some of the Prima girls have created a special card just for Pom! Click here to check out the blog hop.

For my card I've used a white background mixed with plenty of colour pop. The paper and large rose are from the Coffee Break collection mixed in with Instascrap stickers.

I've hand stitched a die cut circle and splattered it using Prima Color Bloom Mists. 

Enjoy your day!

Woodland Canvas - Forever Green + Art Mediums

Hey-lo! Hope you're all doing just fine. Time to show you another creation I've "cooking" up with for Prima!

This canvas uses Finnabair's new Art Basics line and the Forever Green collection to create this texture filled project.

I've used a combo of netting, mesh and muslin mixed with Finn's new modeling pastes. The background has had various mediums applied - Chalk paint, Modeling paste, Light Modeling Paste,  micro beads, Muca flakes and Color Bloom mists. Phew!

The resin mushroom has been  coloured with Pro Markers and sat on top of a pystyrene/styrofoam disc. I loooove mushrooms, they are so cute!


A texture close up with the blended earthy tones...

I've used the new Stone Wall 3 mask and highlighted with gold ink. The canvas has a woodland feel to it, which I've emphasized with beautiful flowers and leaves, all coated with shimmery Color Bloom mists. I hope today's post has given you plenty of ideas and inspiration for using the pastes :)
