Scraps of Love

Hello!  I have a tag art project to share with you today.  I think this would be a perfect gift tag for a wedding or anniversary present. Last week I made a greeting card with two beautiful Prima background papers and a page of mini sentiments.  If you missed the card, you can see it here .  To make the card background, I tore the sheets of 6x6 paper into strips.  I had several of these paper strips leftover when the card was done, as well as several other little pieces of paper cut from the paper pad. What do you do with scraps?  Throw them out?  No, that doesn't work for me with large pieces.  Keep them?  Sure, but where? Better just to use them!  The small squares were trimmed off the greeting card background and were only lightly glued together so I pulled most of them apart.  I started with the largest pieces and used a glue stick to adhere them to a Prima Watercolor Tag. Then I filled in some of the white space with the little square scraps. I like tex

A walk in the woods with Prima

This month has filled my creative desires. My name is Jean  and I adore working with PRIMA. Since people might be preparing for loads of chopped  firewood , I thought this was appropriate.   Tree limbs make for such darling projects. I created a video for today. I promise I am getting better and will have it mastered in 10 or 20 years! I added some drops of ink to the centers of the flowers for more pop and definition. The reverse side is finished to hide the ink testing I did as you will see in the video.  It also conceals the glue used for the hanger.   Supplies: PRIMA Flowers Lifetime and Ladybird PRIMA Paint Metallique Soft Satin Walnut Hollow wood Paris Trunk Re-Inker  (sale) Kai Scissors   (sale) glue gun jute Here is the video, hope you giggle along with me! Thanks for visiting and stay tuned for the names of PRIMA product winners! Comment here to be in the drawing.   To our friends in Texas, we are with you in spirit an
