Altered Boat Prima and IOD

Hello creative people! THanks for popping over to my little blog to see my latest
project! I had so much fun making this old, and quite ugly boat into something display worthy!
I used the new French Riviera line from Prima by Frank Garcia! The wooden panel
paper was perfect for the body of the boat, so i cut it into strips to make it look like real 
wood :) But the show stopper here are those gorgeous IOD Molds! Have you all heard me
say how much I love them yet? hehe! I do , I do! They make me so happy, and make any piece
look really elegant and pulled together! I simply sprayed these wtih color bloom sprays and that was it!
EAsy Peezy! On the blog Evgenia and Robbie share some gorgeous inspiration for you to see
as well! So hop on over :) Big hugs !

Hello lovely crafty peeps :) Sharing some more Prima-fied projects ( made up that word Lol). 
I found this globe at a second hand store and had to grab it! i love altering these! 
I used the mini art stones from Finnabair to make the continents shape. It's not perfect, but close enough hehe! 
The cheesecloth in the bottom is to represent the oceans. So i have some starfish and boats with some mechanical items comng out. I made this for my honey, cause he is the kind of my world ! Hope you all 
like it! I know its a bit different than my usual style, but pushing myself creatively is a must!

Altered Chandelier for Prima

post signatureOkayyyy , so this is a special post to me! About 6 months ago I got asked to create
 with one of the new products being released from Prima for the packaging. I literally
almost died from the excitement and honor of being asked to do so! altered art is my life, my love, my
passion! So to see Prima coming out with so many new lines and mediums that make that
love so easy for me is just amazing! So here we are. These gorgeous new wooden DIY
chandeliers for Prima! They have 2 types, traditional and bohemian. I created for the traditional one. 
But for CHA I got to make a bohemian one too! I have more to share soon :) 
'So with all this rambling, I have to say this project is so so so special to me! I was SO NERVOUS 
to create something that would essentially represent the brand. When people are in stores and want to purchase an item, my little project will be pictured there to HOPEFULLY inspire them enough
to make that purchase! So i felt extremely nervous. I finally just started playing! I used the 
Garden Fable line and countless other pieces from Prima. I did an image transfer onto the wood. 
But don't worry, I have 2 more coming up to share , one of those with a tutorial to show you 
how easy it is to paint one and achieve gorgeous results. I really really really feel so strongly about
these gorgeous DIY products Prima is producing. From the molds, to mediums , to even the pieces themselves that beg to be altered. i love this direction Prima took! Of course they still have everything that made us all fall in love with them to begin with. But they have made it a point to cover all
the bases. And i appreciate them SO MUCH for this! 
So here is my first chandelier and a photo of the packaging hehe! I really hope you all like it! Big hugs! has them in stock if you want to get yours today :)
