Owl Canvas for Create with Prima Video Tutorial

Fall is in the air and I'm READY!  Prima has a new collection that is fabulous for your fall projects!  It's called Autumn Moon and has the perfect color pallet to mix with all your fall decor.

I created this shadow box like canvas using some of the collection along with some other Prima Products that match.  I'm a nut for the owls that we are seeing in decor right now, but I wanted him to be Prima-fied!

This project is quite straight forward and you can watch the video right here:

I added some close-ups so that you can see the placement if you want to give this a try!  Isn't he cute?  I think the metal pieces make him extra special though!

Lots of details!  Most of it is Prima Flowers, but I even went out into my yard to get some sticks! 

One last close-up for the placement, if you want to see how it came together.  

As always, I invite you to join our group on Facebook!  Create With Prima  Be sure to share your latest projects!  We love to see what you are up to!

Also, don't forget to stop by the Prima Blog to see all the latest from the Design Team!

Paint Brush Art Exchange YouTube Hop

Recently, I was lucky enough to get in on an Art Exchange.  We all are exchanging paint brushes.  After giving it some thought and holding my brush for a while, I decided to just go with what I love to do and turn my brushes into dress forms!  I did them all differently, but kept the base of the dress form and the basics the same.  

This was so much fun and just what I needed to get my mojo going!  No rules, just fun! 

Along the way, some of us decided to make videos of our process and have a hop!  So, here is the brush that I created for the hop!   

You can watch the full process video right here:

I've included some extra photos so that you can see the details if you decide to try one.  These are pretty time consuming but so much fun to do!  The possibilities are endless in dressing them.  Mine are all different and I'll be sharing them soon!

One of my favorite parts about this one is the Prima Planner Tassels.  They are beautiful and worked perfectly to add a loose, hanging detail.

Again, all my favorites!  Flowers, sequins, ribbon... the list goes on!  I'm including a supply list in case you would like to know what I used.

Ok... Now for even more!!!
