I played with Prima's new collection "Paisley Road" and here's what I made:
I decoupaged scraps of a book page onto the brightly colored flowers. In the photo above you can see that I've done three of the flowers and three flowers are still "plain." And here's a peek at one of the flowers on the layout:
I had one flower left and used in on this layout:
Love this large colored rhinestone flower and leaves! It was the perfect background for my decoupaged flower.
Next up, I tried out the new "Jack n' Jill" collection. It's a very cutesy collection, but I made it work for me.
I love those wavy lines of rhinestones. I'm going to have to get about a million of those. They're so cool and different and dare I say...masculine? Yes, I believe that if pink rhinestones have a masculine side, this is it!
The photos were taken using the hipstamatic app on my iphone. I used a portion of a long quote (rub-on) on both sides of the photos. You can see the "dream sweet dreams" in the photo above. You can also just sort of see the airbrushing I did over a brand new Prima stencil!
I painted the inside area of the chipboard with two colors of watercolor paints -- the same colors I airbrushed the background with. The three daisies are rub-ons. They were part of a longer chain of flowers, but I wanted to keep the chipboard piece simple and not overwhelm it with girly-ness.
I had the opportunity to play with some of Prima's brand new mid-release pearl swirls too. They're a mixture of pearls and beautiful glittery flowers. Check out what I made:
...and added some rhinestones to create the body of the butterfly. I painted the title and then typed the journaling around it.
The layout has a very soft and romantic feeling. This next one has a slightly more playful and gritty feeling.
When I saw the mural I'm standing in front of in these photos, I lunged at it and demanded that my photo be taken. I love murals and I love the beautiful photo backgrounds they create! As for the details of the layout, I covered the center of the large doily with some patterned paper and it creates a nice clear focal point.
Thanks for stopping by!
