Prima Product Picks

Each month, Prima Product Picks come out.  It is such a fun way to be inspired to use your beautiful Prima Products. This month was no different!  The picks were a beautiful mix of colors and products.


For this color combination, I chose to use lots of beautiful Prima Art Ingredients.  I also added some of the elements from the product picks.  This was a lot of fun to make and will fit perfectly in my home for the fall season.

The chalkboard was also inspired by the PPP photos.  Canvas letters made it easy even without great chalk board writing skills.

In the following photo, you can see how pretty the glass glitter, glitter and micro beads look on these simple paper mache pumpkins.  I even added some to the flowers.

The Prima Die Cut leaves are so beautiful as they are, but adding some mica powder to soft gel gave them a beautiful sheen.

Add a bit of ribbon and raffia and you have easy, pretty pieces to add to your fall decor.

Be sure to go by the Prima Blog to see all the gorgeous projects that the design team has made!  We would love to see y'all play along and can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Prima Relics and Artifacts- AffordableLittle Luxuries

It's amazing how many things you can do with Relics and Artifacts from Prima by Sandra Evertson.  The pieces are perfect for adding to little home decor pieces.  I made this ornament piece to tuck into an grouping.  The heart and wings fit perfectly in the metal piece that I picked up at the craft store.

I used some of the silver micro beads and chrome bloom spray to get started.  I added glass beads, crystals and a touch of metal to complete the look.

I love the way that the Chrome Bloom Spray sat on the heart.  I flooded it a bit and let it dry.  I ended up with a marbleized look on the heart.

As I mentioned before, there are so many beautiful things that can me created with these.  Be sure to take a look at the Prima Blog to see what Sandra and the rest of the team made!  It's a fabulous post!

Color Fun with Prima!

Today at Prima is all about color combinations!  The design team was given several color combinations to choose from and they were all fabulous!  You can see all the combos on Prima's blog.

Here is the layout that I created.  I loved the blues, yellow and grey that were included in my color combination.   I chose to build my layout on a piece of the Prima Resist Canvas to start the process.
I used Glistening Waves Color Bloom to color the canvas.

The new Royal Menagerie Flowers mixed with a few Garden Fable flowers worked perfectly for the embellishing with these colors.

The photo inspiration that went with the color combination included birds.  That reminded me of these sweet little Prima Resin Owls.  I added a bit of Chrome Mist to them to pick up the greys.  I also used some Prima Say it In Crystal pearls to build into my clustered areas.

For a few extra details, I added some Prima Sunshine Wire and some grey beads.

Be sure to head over to the Prima Blog to see what the other designers have done with the same color combination!  There are also 2 other Color Combinations to inspire you!!

So, here is my layout!

The kits are filled to the brim with beautiful things!  I did a bit of fussy cutting and a lot of layers.

Live with Prima

Hi y'all! Recently, I was asked to do a show for Live with Prima.  I was sooooo excited for this opportunity!  It was really fun!

Here is the project that I created.  As you know by now, I'm a HUGE dress form fan!  They are so fun to create and such a great little extra to set around in your home decor.

 If you missed the show and would like to see it, you can watch it right here!

For this one, I made the bodice using Prima doily dies.  I loved the lacy look that this allowed.

I also gave a bit of edge by adding metals to the soft, pretty look.

More details of the back.  I added several different textures and shapes.

Hope you will take a look at the class!  Feel free to ask any questions that you might have and I would love to see your take on the dress form, if you make one!

Also, don't forget to watch Live with Prima every Tuesday and Thursday!!!
