Say It In Crystals!

Hello Hello!

Stopping in for a quick share. This one was created for Prima Marketing Flowers..... Highlights their new Say It In Crystals. By far, these little babies are some of my faves from the release. As of today, they have 6 or 7 different varieties each coordinating with a collection.

I decided to get my Cricut out. It must have been feeling so lonely under the table collecting dust for so long.... I thought I would challenge myself to incorporate a piece cut from it, I decided on the Butterfly in various sizes layering them on top of one another to create dimension.

I have also added some stenciling to the background and some sweet little Ingvild Bolme pieces as well....

Fun with Free Spirit!

Hi Everybody! I have some fun projects to share with you today! I have been busily sharing projects from CHA and I am finally done after today. I have two projects posted to the Prima Blog Today, for your viewing pleasure and a sweet finish to the post here- a teeny canvas featuring Stationer's Desk!

First up is my FAVE project from CHA. I admit I favor layouts- GASP! Say it ain't so! 
Yes, I love layouts, but there is something so WHIMSY about this that I adore. So playful!

Free Spirit Canvas

This canvas first and foremost features Prima's Free Spirit Collection with it's SIIC, Chipboard, and Fussy Cut Paper, but the real winner is that flexible wire and wood icons. YUM! I just adore how the flowers look like they are dancing (and they really do!) around on a summer day! Love!

I also have a FUN Tag featuring the BRAND SPANKING NEW Julie Nutting Doll Stamp just released this past weekend! She is adorable! I also have added even MORE favorites from the Free Spirit Collection- Sugar Dots, Brads, and Chipboard! 

This lovely lady and tag has lots of background work. I have incorporated a mix of gesso, acrylic paint and COLOR BLOOM! to really build texture!

I also have a sweet little 3in by 3in Canvas to share that I sent to Winter CHA. I incorporated the sweet cards from Stationer's Desk ATC pack as they have identical prints from the paper collection just on a smaller scale. I tore paper and placed pieces here and there and then added some Super Heavy Gesso to the remaining parts to fill in.

Skissidella Selected Scrapper of the Month! :)

Hi All! 

I have something fun to share today! I was chosen as Skissidella's Selected Scrapper for the month of March! How cool is that!? You can find out more about this month's sketch and more info about me, the challenge guidelines, and the cool RAK I have up for grabs on their blog post today

Here is their March Sketch!

This background was truly a labor of love. Lots of ink to create this. I wanted my flowers to center as my  focal point of the sketch. The photo of myself served as the shadows of the coloring on the sketch that extend to the edge of the page.

I have added some of my Prima Favorites to this- flowers, and the NEW Stationer's Desk Wooden Icons. My fave part is the scissors that are flipped upside down to serve as the center of my butterfly. 

Until Time,

Playing with some ink!

Hi All! I have a share for you today!

This project features Izink by Clearsnap in Anemone, Silver, and Opaline. The ink is heavily concentrated and served a great purpose to create a water color effect for this. Mixing varying amounts of these colors with water was so fun.

I really like this project in particular for its monochromatic effect. I love the varying hues of purple and with the black as contrast- LOVE!
I have never been a huge fan of purple, but I really love the vary shades this gave me! :)
The Prima flowers just completed the look!

Thanks for stopping in!

Everyday Vintage!

Hi All! 

Stopping in to share some new products for Prima Marketing. I created this project for Winter CHA featuring the NEW Paintables. What is great about these is you can treat them with any medium really OR leave them plain. BOTH ways look stunning. For this particular project I did a lot in the background with mediums so decided the Paintables in the raw would balance it nicely. The designs are STUNNING and the paper quality is lovely. I need a second pack I tell ya! :) 

I love how the dark shades of tan and grey really pop off the background and make my page look that much more dimensional! So fun!
