Believe In The Magic - Prima PPP

Hello friends,

I hope you've had a good week. We have a new Prima Product Pick challenge launched today and isn't it a stunner?

This month's PPP palette is one is one of my favourite festive color combinations! Using  fresh greys and aqua pepped up with cherry red is perfect for this season. As is my love for the vintage and slightly kitsch at this time of year I created a Christmas card which sums up the festivites.

I've mixed Royal Menagerie paper with vintage music paper and corrugated card, highlighting areas with gesso, chalk paint, and smatterings of glass glitter.

I chose a vintage Santa image from the Victorian Christmas collection which I "framed" with a Timeless Memories metal frame and then painted with Egg Blue chalk paint to give it an almost patina finish. Lots of gorgeous embellishments include die-cut doilies, Crimson glass glitter, plus Prima berries and flowers.
