Altered Pieces for Prima at CHA.

post signatureHello everyone!!!!!! Wanted to catch up on some projects I created for Prima's CHA 
booth. Can I just say how AMAZING the new releases from Prima are! We aren't just talking 
paper here people! They have EVERYTHING! The new IOD Molds are probably my 
favorite new item! I just LOVE them all! And love how much bang for your buck you get!
You can create ENDLESS molds to go on your projects using the paper clay, or resin if you choose! 
For people on a budget, these are def initely the way to go! Here are a couple of my projects
using the molds!

I altered this looking glass using the gorgeous Vintage Emporium range. Its so 
incredibly gorgeous and antique-y lol. 



I had this little wooden anchor in my stash and the new French Riviera line was perfect of course! 
Again using that beautiful mold! All i did was spritz it with some Teal Color Bloom Spray. So simple! 

 Hope you all like them! And keep your eye on the blog for all the amazingness! 
Big hugs!

Altered Spools for Prima

post signatureHello everyone! I want to share a project that was really fun for me to create!
I know as crafters we all buy ribbons that come on those cardboard spools. I keep 
EVERYTHING Lol, so after seeing I had about 30 of these i wanted to upcycle them. 
In keeping with that theme I went outside to do some weeding around our fence line and 
was so inspired by the roots I was pulling out! Sounds so silly, but the organic texture was so
pretty. I immediately wnet in and started creating ( sorry honey, he had to finish the weeding lol.) 
The IOD paintables were perfect for this. All those wonderful prints really matched 
my mood. I kept with only a couple of colors and used the Oil Pastels and Color Bloom
sprays to do so. I hope you all lke my little spool picture holders :)
I will be teaching a LWP on the 14th on these. HOpe you will join me

Prima Bloom Girl Ornaments

post signatureHello crafty people :)
Dusting off my blog again, please excuse my absence! 
Hopefully you have been following along with Prima's 12 days of christmas! 
Some AMAZING inspiration going on! I got to create using Jamie's amazing
Bloom range. I decided to use the Birds stamp set. It is my favorite one, and just seemed
to go perfectly with Victorian Christmas papers.

Creating in Faith Bible Journaling

post signatureWell dusting off my old neglected blog here. I figured I would do a little summary in case some of you
don't follow me on Facebook to explain my absence. My mother passed away suddenly and
completely unexpectedly about 2 months ago. my life has just been upside down since then. This year has
been full of ups and downs, but this was a blow I could never be ready for. So, I have been
pretty depressed, nothing has been teh same. I started reading my Bible more though and getting a lot
of comfort from it. One of my fave artists is Jamie Dougherty. She has lines with Prima, and now she has come out with an entire line dedicated to "creating in faith" with Prima. I was over the moon excited to get these amazing and inspiring supplies. We went on a trip to visit some family in Tennessee, so I couldn't take much with me. Just some watercolor pencils a few markers and stamps and inks. And my box of new supplies from Prima. So here are my first attempts at Bible Journaling. Or Illustrated Faith. Whatever you want to call it, I call it refreshing! it is really really relaxing and therapeutic for me! Check out the Prima blog for the master herself, Jamie! She creates AMAZING pages! and the other gals did gorgeous gorgeous pieces as well!
