Prima Challenges for November

Hello, all!  Just wanted to share some projects that I made for the Prima November challenges. It was so great to be able to play along this month! :)

"Fun Guys" Canvas using the Prima Product Pick (PPP)

I love the softness of this color combo. It has somewhat of a feminine look to it, but I really wanted to see if I could make a masculine project with this palette, focusing on the grey and brown, and making the green/teal and purple highlighting colors. I came up wth this canvas:

This picture is one of my all time favorites of my husband and the boys!

I started with a a thick newsprint canvas from Michaels, which was a great background for all of these Prima goodies! I used a Prima stencil and crackle paste, then added soft teal Color Bloom spray, and water and little heaps of the purple mica powder that you can see in the closeup below.

I painted the metal barn starts with gesso, rose gold opal magic paint, and then added a little bit of rose gold Liquid Pearls to give it the brownish rose color from the palette.

I added some grey metals from the Junkyard Findings (the pipe frame and the spark plug) and the Finnabair heart. I added some more brown from the palette with the metal bird and the rusty washer.

And then to round out the colors I added teal, purple, and grey flowers, and brown leaves.

 And that is my masculine take on the PPP. :)

"Lovely" Layout using the BAP

I love this sketch! I had an idea for this layout using this picture of my daughter. I was kind of bummed that she took this selfie in Snapchat with that funky filter!

So, I made it better making a Prima flower headband. :)

I thought this picture would be nice with the Butterfly collection, so I flipped the sketch to make the top paper work.

In the middle of making this layout I bought the new IOD moulds and stamps so I used the script stamp all over, and made some leaves from the moulds with ice resin, which I colored with chalk ink.

 I also made one of the key holes and sprayed it with a gold color broom spray.

And I used color bloom sprays on the chipboard. 

I really love this sketch, and I think I will use it again. 

"Beautiful" Card using the Cards and Tags Sketch

Here's my take on it. I used the Bella Rouge collection, and I even used one of my coveted Prima pistachio branches to create the circle.

The red frame is a Shabby Chic Treasures resin frame that I painted using the royal red metallic paint and brushed it with black artisan powders. I also used green artisan powder on the lace sticker at the bottom right of the page. 

Thanks for stopping by to look at my latest projects! I hope you got a chance to play along this month! :)
