Watercolor Fun!!!

I absolutely LOVE coloring! I have loved it since I was little. It has always been one of my favorite things to do, and it is so calming!!! I did these pages for Prima for the CHA booth using the new Watercolor Pad and watercolor pencils. So much fun!!!

On this one I used several colors of green and blue for the leaves, mixed the colors on the fonts, and added a few blooms!!!

This one I chose to use really pastel and light shades! I added just a few sequins here and there!11

This one was fun! I especially liked the little birds on this one! Such cute images in this pad!!!

Just another fun page, the phrases are wonderful that are in this little pad, and you can make the colors as light or as vibrant as you like, it's up to you!!!

Prima "Tales of You & Me"

I was so excited to finally have projects in the Prima booth at CHA!! There are so many great new products that came out. I can't wait to share all of them. I want to share some of my projects that were in the booth. I'm starting with a layout with the new "Tales of You & Me" collection. This is one of the prettiest collections ever! This photo is our dd's good friend on her wedding day and I love this sweet picture of her and her son!!!

Here you can see some of the lucious blooms, and I also used the Ink N Layer stamps for the leaves!

The little alphas are from the Collection kit and the butterfly is one of the gorgeous wood icons.

More of the gorgeous blooms, and more stamped leaves. I used a Moss Lawn chalk edger.

The blooms in this collection are absolutely beautiful!!! So many fun elements in the Ephemera.

Prima November Challenges!!!

Hello! I hope everyone is having a beautiful Fall, the Season's are changing and with it comes some new challenges from Prima. You can find Prima's November BAP and PPP Challenges here! We would love for you to participate and share what you create with us!

I worked on the new BAP (Build A Page) challenge for the month. Here is the sketch and my interpretation.

This is a picture of my sweet niece on her wedding day! I chose a pretty pastel color palette to match the photo. I used Garden Fable papers and used the Rock Moss chalk edger. I also used beautiful flowers and leaves from the Garden Fable collection as well.
 I used some foam dots under the photo for some addd dimension on the page.

This page was a little more streamlined than usual for me, but the sketch just inspired me to follow it pretty closely. I did flip it, but still basically followed the design. This is a wonderful sketch by the talented Riikka  Kovasin!

Products Used:
Prima Products:  Garden Fable A4 paper pad 847333, Chalk Edger, Rock Moss 891305, Garden Fable flowers Biennial 580773, Garden Fable flowers Herbage 580759, Alpha blends, Something Blue Flair Buttons 572709

There is also a new PPP (Prima Product Pick) for November too, here is the inspiration!

Today I want to share some Halloween projects that I did for Anna's previous HSN appearances featuring some of her awesome Halloween goodies!!! Her Endora collection, lots of Cricut goodies, glitter paper and more!!!

This first layout uses lots of goodies from the Endora collection, so many fun embellishments in this great collection!

This uses of of the beautiful diecut papers from the Endora collection, it's glittered!!! So pretty!!!

A little paper quilting with Endora! A little fussy cutting of the paper with the spider webs too!

This one uses lots of the pretty die-cuts in the collection! And the doily patterned paper making a large rosette!

One of my favorites! Lots of pretty paper from Endora mixed with the new glitter paper cut with the Cricut Holiday content from Anna!

More Cricut goodness for this one!

More glitter paper and the Halloween dies!

A couple of cards as well!

 Just love the purple glitter paper!!!!! Love orange and purple!!!

Dressing it up a little! Some non traditional Halloween colors for this one! These spiders looked so real it was hard for me to peel them from the Cricut mat! LOL!

Glitter pumpkins for this one!

I absolutely LOVE Anna's Halloween collections, they are always so pretty and versatile and have so many embellishments to choose from! Lots of fun creating!!!!

I made a card "Be Happy". I used one of the gorgeous Relic & Artifacts cast. I added some blooms, some stamp cutout berries and a ribbon!

I used the Prima Palette markers to color the cast. I love the way the markers show the strokes, it looks like some type of natural stone!!!! I used blues and greens and a gorgeous coral for the heart!

Prima's October BAP!!!

October's sketch, by the one and only Riikka Kovasin, is completely amazing with a triple photo spot, condensed journaling lines, a wonderfully lowered title, and a fantastic media-filled backdrop! Our designers on both teams: Design Team and Educators LOVED it so much! here are a few samples for you to get your mojo going!

Here is my take on the challenge for this month. Please check the Prima blog to see what the rest of the DT did with the sketch too! 

This is a page of our precious Granddaughter at 6 months. I used lots of Royal Menagerie products for this page. I followed the sketch almost exactly just changing a few things, I put the title over the photos and kept the rest pretty much the same.  I used the oil pastel crayons (pink) to draw circles. Then blended with a waterbrush. I added a few “splats” also! I misted the background with the Frost and Boysenberry Color Bloom sprays. I just added some blooms and sequins. I also stamped a solid cardstock around the edges to use as my background paper. A really simple page to complete!

We would LOVE to see what you create with this month's PPP or BAP! You have until October 31st to enter your Prima project! There are only three rules:
1. The project must be Prima-based. 2. The deadline is October 31st at 23:55 ET. 3. You must have FUN creating it! Ready! Set! Go!
