My Altered Mixed Media Paint Brush
Prima Marketing Design Team Challenge



Hi there, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have an "altered mixed Media" paint brush to show you
which is the May DT challenge over at the Prima Marketing Inc. blog....

This months challenge is to use....
           #1. Altered Brush
           #2. Metallic Gold Flakes
           #3. Teal
           #4.Mould
           #5. SIIC..(Bling)


 I started out with an old paint brush, primed it with a couple of coats of white gesso
 & then coloured it up using some "Art Alchemy" Metallique paint
in the colour "Gold". Such a lovely rich colour.

 Next up I then rubbed on lots & lots of "Art Alchemy" Wax Pastes
in the colours of "Peacock", "Mint Sparkle" & "Vintage Gold".


My next step was to colour up two of the beautiful "Grungy Frames" moulds.
Firstly I coloured them with "Art Alchemy" teal paint in the colour of "Emerald Green",
 followed by brushing on some of the "Gold" metallique paint again,
 to show up all the gorgeous details on these frames.


I then proceeded to stick on both frames, some flowers, both old & new, as well
 as some die cut pieces which I also painted in the "Gold" paint to match in 
with this beautiful colour scheme. I little gold foliage die cut was given a 
make over using some of the wonderful "Art Ingredients" Fine Metallic Flakes 
in the colour of "Venice" for some added sparkle.

"Love You" - Chloe
For Prima Marketing Inc

"CHLOE"


Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Well this week is "International Scrapbook Week" so over at
Prima Marketing Inc we have all sorts of things happening everyday &
today our theme is PETS !!

For my contribution to this PETS day I have created this tribute layout to
my dearly departed CHLOE. I loved her beyond words but unfortunately
she succumbed to cancer !!

This pic was taken in a photo shoot a friends daughter did for me with her a
 few weeks before she died. Pink feather boa, pearls & all the trimmings. 
We had her leg amputated try to try & save her, several rounds of cheomotherapy, all to no avail. 
We lost her in the end & it was so hard letting her go. I don't think you are ever ready.
 I hope you like my tribute to her.


Lots of fussy cutting from the beautiful Prima Marketing papers from the 
"Lavender Frost" collection & flowers from 
"With Love", "Magic Love" & also "Indigo" collections.


I also used Some Finnabair Glitter from the "Winter" collection
& mica powder from the "Pearls & Crystals" collection & a
flourish from 2Crafty Chipboard.


I finished off with Prima Memory Hardware pearls & art stones.

Well I hope you like my tribute to my Chloe & perhaps be
inspired to scrap some photos of your pets too.

"Memories of Doris"
A Vintage Layout for Prima Marketing Inc.



Hello there, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a vintage layout to share with you
& it features this magnificent photo of my "Great Great Aunt" Doris Colless circa 1907.
 She was sister to my great grandmother.

I am sooo very lucky to have this photo as well as some other beautiful
family photos taken back in this era.


So for my layout I have used Prima papers from the "Midnight Garden" collection.
It is a slightly older collection but absolutely perfect for scrapping old photos !!!

I did some fussy cutting with the papers which are just sooo beautiful.


A little stencilling with some "Red Amber" Icing Paste, a few splatters,
lots of layers created with the papers I fussy cut from the paper pad & I am almost done!!

I have given a colour wash with some watered down Finnabair Sparks paint in "Iris Potion"
to the Sharon Ziv flowers, which are dusty pink tones, so that they were just the right
shade I was after. I was super happy how they turned out.

I have also added a really old doiley behind my photo which was my
 grandmothers too. So happy with how this all came together.

It is wonderful to actually scrap this old photo & also getting to use the old doiley
instead of just having them stored away. This way I get to see them & it gives
me a great joy.

Prima Marketing Inc
"Farm Sweet Farm" Collection

Hello there Prima fans, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have a little mixed media paint brush to show you
that I created using lots of gorgeous Prima Marketing Inc goodies 
from the gorgeous "Farm Sweet Farm" collection.

See full product list at the end of the post.


I started my project off by spreading lots of Prima's white
"Crackle Paste" all over the brush. Thicker in some parts than others.
The thicker you apply it, the deeper the cracking becomes.


Next up I added a gorgeous Prima
 "Forest Flora" ReDesign Decor Mould
which I added some Prima Art Alchemy Sparks paint in 
a lovely colour called "Fairy Wings" green.


Next came the part I looove, adding all the beautiful 
flowers from the
"Farm Sweet Farm" collection.


To finish off  I added a little "Chipboard Sticker"..."Fresh & Local"
which is also from the same "Farm Sweet Farm" collection too.
Hey presto, all finished.

"Gorgeous"
Showcasing Some of the NEW Chipboard
For 2Crafty Chipboard


Hi there 2Crafty fans. Thanks for stopping by. 

Today I have another layout to share with you, but unfortunately
it has been raining here for what seems like forever, which is not conducive with
photgraphing my layout & so I am not really happy with the quality of these photos !!

So very sorry !!!

2Crafty Chipboard Used....
Mini Ariels Border #3
Mini Doiley Discs - Set of 3
Mini Word Set #3
Decorative Rod Set #1


So after firstly priming all my chipboard pieces with two coats of white gesso,
on both the NEW "Ariels Spray Mini"  & also for the "Gorgeous - Mini word"
I then wiped them of with a little Finnabair Wax Paste.


I left the "Mini Doiley Discs" plain white for some added contrast.

My papers & flowers are from Prima Marketing Inc.



At the very top of my layout I have used one of the pieces
 of "Decorative Rod" chippie pieces too.

All finished. I hope you like it.
