A flowered Prima ATC, and baby headbands, too!

An ATC, on chipboard blank, embellished with vintage lace and pretty Prima flowers.  This was followed with ballet pink paint, Prima Metallique Soft Satin, and touches of Prima Dragon's Eye Sparks paint.  The little girl is from the Altered Pages Chubby Cheeks collage page.


And these Prima flowers adorn some baby headbands--cute, yes?



Happy Thursday to you!

DAY ONE - My supplies at the ready. I never use everything and sometimes I use things that aren't pictured here, but I like a variety to start with and then I just use my imagination.
First, I picked out a shell shape and a figurine from the Prima Relics and Artifacts resin pack. I painted both of them with Prima Gold metallic paint.  I let that dry then I used a…

Welcome to a new week  with Prima and Jean.

Supplies: Prima Ascot Flowers Vintage Book page Gold Leaf Duo Glue Double side tape Rhinestones Cardstock base with envelope



I choose an interesting page from a vintage book.  I cut it to show the text I wanted.  I used double sided tape to adhere to the black card base.  
I use the amazing Duo glue to achieve some leafing on my flower and the paper.  The flower was attached to the black base, then rhinestones were added for accent, echoing the reddish color of the page accent.  More leafing was added to pop the corners and echo the gold on the flower. The black base was added to a cream card which has a matching envelope.   
YOU can make the most superb, remarkable and fantastic projects with PRIMA!

If you saw my videos, you noticed how often I say fabulous. I am working on expanding my vocabulary.  The thesaurus made FABULOUS suggestions!

Tag Art with Prima

Hello artists and crafters.  Happy Friday!  Today I have a floral tag to share.  The rose pattern by Prima in their 6x6 Paintables paper pad reminds me very much of a tapestry.  



The flower background, tag and each of the smaller images which embellish the tag are by Prima and you can find them all at Altered Pages.  I also used three of their gorgeous acrylic paints.  These paints have a wonderful shimmer.  And when you use them lightly or thinned with water they dry quickly.



I began by adding paint to the floral watercolor paper using a baby wipe.  I wanted to keep the paint thin enough for the black lines of the flowers to show clearly.  When that was done, I  went back and darkened in the green leaves and painted the roses with more of the copper paint.  Then I used the white paint to tone down the green leaves.  Confused?  The white paint is thin enough to let the color through but added more sheen to them.





The accent flowers were colored with permanent markers in various colors.  T…
