Prima December PPP

Hi everyone! I only had time to do one of the Prima challenges this month, so I did the PPP.

I loved the color scheme of the PPP challenge this month, and it made me wish that I had bought the Sweet Peppermint collection insread of just a couple of the flower packs, but I just have so much Christmas stuff, I really couldn't justify it! So, I had to improvise, digging out some new and old Prima stuff.

Here's what I came up with:




I picked up this circle wood pallet from Michaels a while back. I painted it with some Chalkboard Paint in Eggshell, randomly added some of Finnabair's snowflake paste, then added some of the new fresh mint chalk ink.

Here's a close up of what the surface/texture looks like:


The letters are also Prima, from the wood alphabet hexagon boxes. I lightly pressed both of the new red chalk inks on the letters to give them a distressed and rustic look.


Next, I treated the chipboard frame with white gesso and misted it with the empress gold Color Bloom spray. I cut up some of the ruby Relics and Artifacts rhinestone chain in the three different sizes to adorn the chipboard frame.

Then I added the flowers- I used some of the new Sweet Peppermint leaves and fabric flowers, and also some OLD, OLD Prima flowers- the Baroque red ones, and the gold pearl holiday sprays.

I finished up by adding a resin angel and a Shabby Chic metal lamp post.

Thanks for taking a look at my project.

Happy New Year!
