Creating in Faith by Jamie Dougherty from Prima Marketing

I am loving these new Rub-ons from the Creating in Faith Collection from Prima.  They come in two sizes and the large ones are just perfect for larger projects.  This is an 8x10 wood plaque and that I painted, distressed and added gold rub-n-buff to.  The gold rub-on went on easily even to a painted surface!  I love the gold color, too!

You can see the color a bit better in this close-up.  I also used the oil pastels to add drips and color in the pattern.  The rub-on held up to all that, too!  They are really terrific!!

Be sure to take a moment to check out the Prima Blog to see what the other girls have made.  The bible journaling cards, stencils and stamps are all fantastic!!

Mixed Media and Relics and Artifacts

Happy Halloween!!

Isn't it fun when you can use so many beautiful and fun things to create with?  Prima knocks it out of the park with all their gorgeous flowers, glitters and trinkets.  Add the fun of Relics and Artifacts and you have a perfect mask for Halloween!

This is the first time that I've gotten to use the Dresden Trims and I loved them!!!  They are thick with a gorgeous gold color and stand up perfectly for the backdrop for this mask.

I kept it simple with the Relics and Artifacts skull.  Adding Art Sugar was not only easy, it also didn't cover the details of the resin piece.

Head over to the Prima Blog for more ideas for using your favorite Prima products for Halloween!

Creating in Faith - Prima Marketing

Today is a big day!  Prima is releasing the brand new Creating in Faith collection by Jamie Dougherty!  This collection is so wonderful!  There are many beautiful rub-ons, stamps and bloom girls included in this collection.  It is so perfect for bible journaling, but so much more, too.  I loved playing with it!

I created these cards using some of the phrase stamps.  They came together so easily and I love the inspirational message that the collection allowed me to add to them.

A handful of watercolor pencils along with the Creating in Faith stamps for the background made the base.  I then added a few embellishments along with the beautiful Nikko flowers and I had cards that I'm going to be happy to send.

I also made this wooden cross and added the rub-on to the bottom.  It is a great size to add to small home decor pieces, as well as cards, journals and bible journals.   I LOVE this verse and knew that it had to make it's way onto one of my projects!

Again, adding a hand full of embellishments pulled this together.  I love all the mixed media products that Prima makes!  I not only used the Color Bloom Mist, but also the glass glitter and even threw in a few of the glass beads! 

I can't wait for y'all to get a chance to play with these!!  I know that you are going to find them as inspiring and easy to create with as I did!!!

Be sure to go check out the Prima Blog to see what the other girls made with them and see the entire collection!!!  You will love it ALL!

It's Prima Day

What a great day it is today!  It's Prima Day!!  So many fun things going on today in the Prima World!  If you didn't start at the Prima Blog, be sure to get over there to see work from the design team and hear all about everything Prima!

I wanted to share a tag that I made.  As you can see, it's attached to a bow.  There is a reason for that!  Instead of a paper tag, I decided to make a tag that would compliment a package but also be a little extra gift!  So, this tag will come right off the package, already has a hook and is ready to be added to your Christmas tree as an ornament.


I started with some of the beautiful Prima Metal for a base and punched it up by adding some equally beautiful Relics and Artifacts.  I used the new Chrome Color Bloom to add color to the Relics and Artifacts Pendants.  It worked perfectly!

I kept it all in the silver and white family by adding white flowers and lots of silver micro beads.  A few more metal pieces and a pretty bow and this one is ready to hang on the tree or even add to another home decor piece.

Hope you are enjoying Prima Day as much as we are!  Be sure to head back to the Prima Blog to get links to all the other designers blogs!

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!!
