Journal Cover with Memory Hardware

My favorite thing about the Memory Hardware is how beautifully it all goes together!  I was able to create this journal cover using so many different things from Prima's Memory Hardware.  I started out using the brand new Memory Hardware Resin Frame.  These are all so lovely!  I added Memory Hardware Artisan Powder and Metallique Wax Vintage Gold.  

I then started building from there.  I also added Memory Hardware Trims and Fragments.  See what I mean... it all coordinates beautifully!   Of course, I can't quit putting the new crowns on birds!  Such a sweet touch!  I love the new Crowns!!! 

Finally, I finished it off with a Memory Hardware Trinket and some Memory Hardware pearls for the centers!

Prima Love Clippings

Since it's Valentine's Day, what better way to celebrate that using Prima's Love Clippings?
I created this layout using it and it's LOVE, for sure!

This collection has a beautiful vintage feel with so many rose gold foiled accents.  It fits perfectly for layouts and so much more!  It's all about Love and that is in style any day of the year!

Layers, Layers, Layers!  I added so many to this layout!  I also love the sentiments that are included in the ephemera and in the collection pads!

Add matching gold accents to the flowers, pulled this together.  I love the look of the edges being colored while keeping the flower color true.

New Sparks Paint from Prima

This one was a lot of fun! I had it hidden in a drawer because it was starting to fall apart and have been meaning to fix it up, but hadn't gotten around to it yet.  When I saw the new Prima Sparks from Finnabair, I knew they were perfect for this one!  I also used the new Prima Waxes from Finnabair, too!

The Sparks paints are so shiny and just truly sparkle.  They set perfectly on both the natural elements of this owl and the fabulous Finnabair metal pieces!  I couldn't resist giving this one lots of bling and fun metal elements.  Of course, the eyelashes made from a metal flower that I cut in half are probably my favorite part!  

I added the Prima Wax to the body after painting it with the Prima Sparks.  It gave it lots of visual dimension and kept it from looking flat.

This side view shows the back of the owl's detail.  I was able to pick up a bit of the 'spark' but the photos never do this justice. You can also see more of the metal here, in addition to the flowers that I also altered with the Sparks!  

So, Finnabair and Prima have done it again!  More fabulous products that work for anything, even a broken down owl!

It's Love with Prima

Today on the Prima Blog it's All about LOVE!  I created these little canvases then tied them together with my favorite ribbons.  This idea could easily be done as separate canvases, too!  


I used some of the Prima Paper Clay to make this heart for the "O".  I just rolled out some paper clay with a rolling pin, stamped on it with a Prima Stamp and then cut it out in the shape of a heart. 

I painted the wood alphas with White Gesso, then colored them to match.  I used the same stamp to give them a bit of pattern.  The last thing was Prima WAX!  I can't get enough of this stuff!  All the gold accents on the canvas, wood and paper clay are done using the wax!

To embellish, I used Prima flowers, IOD Moulds and Trim. 

Head over to the Prima Blog to see a TON of ideas that are Love Filled!  There are more to come, too!


New Prima Love Clippings

Of course, I had to make a dress form with the new Prima Love Clippings collection by Frank Garcia!  It has become somewhat of a tradition to make dress forms.  This one went to CHA.  I loved the heavy rose gold accents on this collection.  It made her dress quite formal and shiny!

This one is larger than I usually make.  It is 20" tall! I covered the paper mache form with micro beads and added Metallique paints.  I also used the rose stencil with 3D gloss gel mixed with Prima Mica Powder to add pattern and sheen to the background.

The little Prima Resin frames were such a pretty accent!

The skirt is made of paper with bits of tulle tucked in here and there. I distressed it a bit and added lots of Prima Glass Beads to it, too.

I fussy cut some of the papers and added them for more pattern and dimension.  Of course, the finishing touch was beautiful Prima Flowers!!

New Julie Nutting Dolls and Dies from Prima

Hi!  Today, I'm sharing one of my new Prima Projects that I created using the brand NEW Julie Nutting dolls! This doll reminds me so much of high school and college! Prairie skirts were huge then!  The bigger the skirt, the more pleating or gathers, the better it would look when dancing!  Of course, we wore them with boots, too!

If you look at this angle, you can see all the dimension.  The skirt was cut out in sections and then layered.  Since I'm from Texas, the sentiment was obvious!  :)  I also added some rope, stars and of course, NEW Prima Flowers! 

Something else... there are dies for this doll!!!  Be sure to go to Prima's Blog to see all the different new dolls!

Wild and Free from Prima!

I created this using Prima's new Wild and Free collection by Frank Garcia.  This collection is great for so many things and has beautiful rose gold accents.  I started with one of Prima's 12x12 Watercolor Panels that I opened up, rolled back and filled with lots of the Wild and Free papers, elements and Flowers.

I used some of the journal cards that are printed on the papers to tuck into my feather wreath and behind my little birdie.  I also tucked in some of the Ephemera elements.

Of course, don't forget Prima's Flowers!!!  The new release flowers are beautiful, as always!  

Be sure to go by the Prima Blog!  We are continuing to showcase all the new releases and you don't want to miss anything!  Trust me!
