Art Is The Answer Mixed Media Plaque

Hello lovely bloggers! I am excited to share my next Live With Prima
class for June! I was supposed to do it in July, but switched projects around, cause
sometimes you just don't want to wait to show something off heehe! 
I just had a lot of fun with this one! And hope I can share a little tiny bit of 
inspiration to someone else! That's all I ever want! I used the carte blanche wood plaques
from IOD and Prima. And then went to town with Finnabairs new mediums. 
Mainly the rust paste, along with Art Stones and Texture Powder. But
as you can see, the supply list below is BIG. hehe! Don't worry though
if you don't have all these items! I will show you how to use what you
have to make some awesome texture! The gear is hand drawn and cut out of paper. 
So for those who don't have a die cutting system I thought I would free hand it! 
Hope you like it! The little jar by my Milagros lady has some 
dandelion sprigs in it! So she can make a wish soon :)
Make sure to stay tuned each Tuesday and Thursday for FREE
ustreams on Prima's channel! All the instructors are so inspiring!

Door Makeover and Book Wall with Prima

Hello everyone!!!!! Back for another Monday Makeover from the Prima blog!
IN case i haven't gotten the word out, I redid my entire craft room recently. 
Using the IOD range of DIY products, and loads of other Prima
goodies of course. Today they shared my front entrance door and wall. Which is my baby! 
I went on a whim and decided to cover my wall in book paper. 
I have a full video ttutorial on how I spruced up this area. 
It's on Youtube here :)

Altered Jar Using Foil by Prima

Hello creative peeps and bloggers :) 
Prima has been showcasing the super cool Christine Adolph adhesive rub ons
and their foils. I am in LOVE with these foils! I have always loved using them,
but in the past you could only get like silver or gold! Not anymore. Prima
has so many choices! I love the rose gold color I uses below. It's my favorite! 
You will see i put it on EVERYTHING lol. I can't stop once I get started! Its so fun
to just take a scrap piece of the foil sheet and pounce it on top of different surfaces
for a metallic finish! So easy too!
You all MUST check out the blog! These DT gals blew me away today with their
projects! So inspired to do more projects! I hope you like my
contribution down below. Huge hugs!

DIY Room Redo with Prima

Hello wonderful bloggers! I'm so over the moon excited to announce a new little
series that will be on the Prima blog on Mondays! I redid my craft room in the last
couple weeks ( months? Lol) . And it's all because of the new range
Prima and IOD have done together! I have been so inspired to try  my hand at the 
whole DIY craze. I am NO expert, so please know that all my tutorials are just me 
doing what worked for me! My trials and some errors. But the end results  make me very happy!
I now have a room that i LOVE to be in! That actually inspires me, instead
of scaring me out of it lol. It was so so so ugly and over loaded before! It looked
like I belonged on an episode of Hoarders hehe! Keep in mind we live in a 
very old place that is full of blemishes and has so many things falling apart! We are 
building a new home soon, so we stopped sinking any money whatsoever into 
this place. But that doesn't mean I can't dedicate a little time to making a space I love in the 
meantime! You will see the before pix along with the whole process, on each project that
is shared. It's always going to be a work in progress! But i am much happier now , 
and feel proud to show people my craft room/studio. 
I LOVE Industrial Chic~! So my room is very  much in this theme. But this line
is very Parisian and flea market-ish hehe. Farm/Barn looks in some. 
This line really lends itself to ANY STYLE!
I hope you will all follow along and see my journey , and I will be here to answer
any questions along teh way! Below I am linking the first blog post and the Snapguide tutorial
along with a link to see the new DIY range from Prima and IOD, so you can see
what inspired me to redo my room. Josie and Sally from IOD are amazing! 
Huge thanks to them for coming up with these amazing products, and Prima for releasing 
them! Hugs to you all :)

Here is a "before" shot of the piece. It was a fun unit. Just needed some sprucing up!
 Thank you all SO MUCH for stopping by! xoxo

Prima Design Team Call 2016-2017

Hello creative peeps :) 
Here I am , dropping in for my very hopeful post to join the Prima DT for another
term. Fingers and toes crossed! This last year on board the DT has been an 
AMAZING incomparable experience. Towards the middle of my term, came at a rocky time
in my life, and most things in my life took a blow. But I have been back at it 
in full force! Hoping to show this company just how important they are to me! 
So here we go! Most of these works are from my last year on board the team. My
number one passion is altered art! So sorry for the lengthy post, but boy its HARD to narrow
it down to a few projects! And they did say "at least three projects" on the DT call. Hehe!
GOOD LUCK to all of you applying! I know how hard it is! Putting ourselves out and hoping
it's "enough" for this call. I'm rooting for all of you! Honestly, I am! Huge hugs!

Arena 3 Altered Art Projects

Okay , this was HARD to narrow down, I tried :)




Arena 4 Bible Journaling Projects
 The new Creating In Faith Line has made a Bible Journaler out of me in a big way! 
I LOVE it so much!

Arena 1 Cards (minimal here)

I dabble here and there with cards, tags, and the occasional layout. 

Arena 2 DIY Home Decor

I just recently redid my ENTIRE craft room with the IOD range, and lots of Prima goodies. I love it so much! So happy to be able to create in here now!

Arena 5 Videos and SBS
 I LOVE to create tuts for my projects! I currently do Live With Prima, and make videos
for my DT posts and Snapguides as well. I have too many to list, most of these 
in this blog post are either on Prima's channels or my own. 
 Here are links to Prima's and my YT and Snapguide to view them. 
Thank you for viewing this quite lengthy post :) 
Hugs to everyone! xoxo
