August Prima PPP

Good Evening,

I am very excited to have the time to participate in the prima challenges again. This time I was very inspired by the August Prima PPP color palette. For this layout, I decided to use a paint medium that I havent used before. This time I used twinkling H2Os for my coloring on the background instead of glimmermist. I love working with these watercolors.

For this layout, I used the following Prima products:
Pattern Paper: Divine and Lyric
Embellishments: Wood buttons # 564995, Typo Zippers #891558, Vintage Trinkets #960407, Honeycomb stamp #960902, Say it in Crystals #551438, Industrial lamps #891572
Flowers: Romance Novel #562298, Overture C # 561529, Romantique #552503

Thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog. I greatly appreciate it.

Cards and Mixed Media

Good Morning,

Here is another project I created with the July Swirlydoos Kit. I decided to create a card for the Butterfly challenge instead of a layout. I love to create cards and invitations. I feel there is nothing more personal and meaniful than a homemade card with a nice sentiment. 

For this card I was exicted to play with the Ferro texture paste that came in the mixed media add on. Everything that was used on this card came from the Swirlydoos kits and store except for the Jenni Bowlin label.

I truly love how this ferro texture paste spreads easily over a prima mask. Since I was having so much fun with this medium, I decided to make another card with the Prima sunrise papers.

All the items used on this card is from the swirlydoos kits and store except for the trinket.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.

Vacation is OVER!!

Wow... Its been a while since my last blog post. During the months of June and July, I took a break to focus on the kids as they finish the school year, dance recitals, family camping trips, and etc. It was a break my children deserve as I spent quality time with them. Now its August, I am ready to get back in the groove of scrapping (MY TIME). I missed it dearly but seeing my swirlydoos kits arrive monthly was a special treat even though I was not scrapping.

So I was very excited to start playing with the latest main kit and the new mixed media kit from Swirlydoos. I am in LOVE with the new mixed media kit from Swirlydoos. I love playing with new mediums and color. So for this layout, I didnt have a particular challenge in mind. I wanted to play freely with the July kit. I had a wonderful time playing with the embellies and the prima sunrise papers.

This layout is of my daughter at her 5th birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. In this layout, I added the following mediums: modeling paste, bead gel medium, silk acrylic paint, martha stewart texture paste. Most of the mediums was added in the corners of the layout and around the photo using random splotches and prima masks.

Thank you for taking the time out to visit my blog today. I appreciate all comments that have been left recently.
