Prima DT Call

Hello everyone, well like most of you all, Prima is of course the DREAM TEAM.
I am currently a Live With Prima Instructor, but that is a
different portion of the Prima family. And I still have that dream of being on
the original design team. The added bonus of creating multiple projects a month
using the BEST supplies in the biz..... yep that's my dream! I always feel like doing altered
art vs doing layouts puts me at a disadvantage, but I am giving it a go anyways.
I have to thank the sweetest lady ever, Cari Fennel, for believing in me and adding me to
the incredible Live With Prima team. I LOVE sharing projects with you all each month.
Teaching is always my goal. For most of these projects I linked the video tutorial for anyone who wants to take a peep ;)  I want to show how you can create unique pieces of altered art!
Nothing makes me happier than finding some discarded treasure that can be
transformed into a beauty. So here are some of my favorite Prima based projects from the last
couple years. Fingers and toes crossed that I make it. And best of luck to
everyone else applying! May your dreams come true! Hugs!
Ok, so I will start with some of my newer projects created for this DT call :)
Remember NOTHING is safe with me lol, I will alter ANYTHING!
Here is my altered globe....
I used the Archivist Collection with bits of other lines :)

Here is my project for my latest LWP show
I altered one of the Finnabair Birdhouses with tons of art mediums! Love them!
And the new Butterfly Collection. So pretty!

This was the Julie Nutting Dollhouse turned printers tray
 This is for my upcoming Ustream on the 12th of May :) Hope you will join in!

And here are some more of my past pieces using lots of yummy Prima!!!!

The junkyard findings from the Ingvild range are some of my FAVES!
Halloween doesn't have to be scary hehe!

 My first art journal spread
 Altered box for the Prima PPP ( I won that month and had
a heart attack of joy!!!!!! I felt so honored and blessed!)
The PPP's and BAP's are always SO FUN! And such
a good challenge . 
 Bee happy ;)
 I LOVE the Epiphany line. Altered this phone using it.
An older piece , altered paint palette.
I love to use the wooden trays the wooden icons come in.
As part of the Ingvild Bolme DT in the past we had to create
an Easter project, this was mine :) I love Easter pastels!
 This piece is much older, but it was my first gumball machine, and is very
special to me :) Prima works with EVERYTHING!
And lastly just a fun little recycled piece. I HATE throwing
out all of my old paintbrushes! So I used them on a canvas, with some
Prima goodness!

I do occasional layouts too hehe! And I love to do them when I get a chance!!!

I used lots of chalk edgers and have a video tutorial on this one :)
 Prima Vines are my all time fave items!!!!! Especially these ones!
I usually print my pix on transparency film. That way the gorgeous
Prima paper can show through!
 ahhh , the Lyric collection!
This one doesn't have Prima paper, but it has my favorite flower from Prima ever!!!
The Odette! I must have used a kazillion of these! And the Mechanicals
from Finnabair are heavenly! And I must admit I am very much addicted
 to the Ingvild chalk edgers! I use them on EVERY single project. All the 
extra color here is added by them! They are perfect!

Now these next few projects were from my term with G45, They do have Prima flowers on them ( of course!!!!)but not a lot of paper, but I feel they truly show my LOVE for altered art. So I wanted to show them. . . .

I LOVE to make dreamcatchers!
 Altered Skillet ( LOL nothing is safe!)
Altered coffee grinder
Can you tell i LOVE Prima vines??? hehe
 This was all handmade , I have a Tutorial on the cupcakes, so easy
and fun to make! 
PHEW! That was a LOT, but I really wanted to show my love for Prima!!!
It would be the highest honor to make it, and create altered pieces using all their amazing
supplies! A girl can dream right ;)
Thank you very much for your consideration :)

G45 Fairy Garden Cart/Box

Hello all :) Here today with my altered ATC box for Graphic 45.
Some of us on the DT were challenged to make something using these wonderful boxes,
and you have to go check out the blog to see what everyone did with theirs!
Super awesome ideas! I was inspired by my teammie Nichola to make this little
whimsical piece. Along with another very talented lady Debrina Pratt.
I know mine doesn't come near the charm their pieces have, but I tried lol :)
I used the amazing Once Upon A Springtime Deluxe Collectors Edition. Along
with some Botanical Tea bits :)
I have a Snapguide Tutorial on how I created it. Hope you like!
