Okay, forgive me. Blog would be considered inactive. LOL! I have excuses I tell ya! What have I been up to?

1. The biggest one, is we moved. Enough said. It's a lot of work and I am glad that that's over! 

2. In the mean time, I have become a new member of the LIVE WITH PRIMA FAMILY! WOOHOO!

Or at least it was! Well the cat is out of the bag and I can share some of my DT creations with you today!

Prima Pin Spin!

Hello All! 

I love it when I am surfing the internet and I stumble across an amazing color palette or a photo that inspires me to get creative. AND I always enjoy Prima's Pin Spin Feature. This month I was to choose a pin and create a Mixed Media project from it AND include some Prima Classic Flowers. Here is my project. Please take some time to stop by the Prima Blog and check out the whole feature. There you will find my pin and how it inspired me to get out my paints and Color Bloom Sprays and get creating.

It feels so good to create. (Happy Sigh)

You can't get much more classic than a rose right?! :) I have chosen to work with these beautiful blooms to create this canvas piece. Honestly, these Orange roses from the Free Spirit Collection and well, all the Prima varieties of it's kind- are my new fave. Truly hoard worthy ;)

In My Garden.....

Hi All!

Every once in awhile I get this urge to really create a layout that is FULL of flowers. My favorite flowers. Prima does a great job creating such a diverse mix of floral, I love mixing and matching and just fitting them together like a puzzle. 

Lots of background treatment here with the mediums. I wanted it to flow and look like a painted garden to blend in with the embellishments. Lots of paint and inky fun! I have added some Chipboard to this as well. Pretty pretty. 
Love the Say It In Crystals and Ingvild Bolme Butterflies. They are just perfect ending to this. The "Hey Love" sticker is from the Prima Insta Scrap Line. 

And a close up of the pretties.....

Ok, So that was short and sweet. Hope this finds you all well and thank you always for stopping by!

Until Next Time,
