The Rondelle Collection: Anna-Maria Style!

Anna-Maria Wolniak has created 3 beautiful projects using our lovely Rondelle line! Her clean, but art-filled style, is shown off here in a gorgeous mini-album and two layouts.

 

ENJOY!


SneakPeek2

"When I receive my DT Prima box I knew that the 'Rondelle' collection will be my favourite at this season!  I found some proper photos with pale pink shades and started to work with the 'Rondelle' line."

29 oct 02asmall

 

"At the begining I've made a sweet mini-album with the sea photos. I knew that I had to add an ultramarine shade of blue there - but it turned out that fits perfectly to other colours from this line."

 

29 00small

 

"As usual I used some mixed-media actions with gesso, watercolour paint and pencil doodling - I love them! I also added some beautiful and funny Prima's stamps and stickers (they are pops of colours in my album.)" ~Anna-Maria

Designer Day with Steph Devlin!




Sometimes we just need to play.  As I sat down to think about my first project for my "Designer Day" and I was overwhelmed with feelings of not knowing where to start.  Ever have days like that?  I put a few things together and nothing worked.  An hour went by.  Then I decided not to think and just play.  A little bit of gauze here, some stamping, napkins, gesso and white paint, and before I realised something started to take shape.  Throw in the beautiful "Tea Thyme" line, and add to the mix Ingvild Bolme's gorgeous resins and my project started to adopt a real shabby chic feel.  



I love how stamps can add a layered feeling to a project.  I have stamped on the base and layered it with  Tea Thyme's Roses which can give your patterned paper roses a 3D feel to them.

Here, have just painted some gauze onto this layout, popping some Mod Podge on first to secure the gauze and then giving it a coat of gesso.  I usually pop some gesso in a lid and give it a quick spray of water from my mini mister to thin out the consistency.  


  Materials:

844684 - Challis
844721 - Charmante
844097 -  Composition (Almanac)
844952 - Cottilion
561338 - Encore
561369 - Encore
922092 - Donna Downey Spot Mask (6x6)
891442 - La Coeur 
561840 - Pierott (Juliette)
591596 - Clock Faces
591589 - Clock Hands
890773 - Small Birds Resin
551056 - Stamp
950248 - Stamp (Fairybelle)



When finding yourself stuck for ideas, one idea is to go over to Pinterest and just browse the boards for inspiration.  I saw a photo of a dress form, and used it an starting point for this next project.  It was so easy to create and I love the feminine whimsical quality I finished up with.  

 Just take any chipboard dress form, and paint with gesso and dry.  I love my shabby projects to have a chalky white finish, so for this I inked over the gesso, and once dry, distressed the edges.  Next, I stamped Prima's crown stamp and the beautiful Flourish Frame Stamp using Ingvild Bolme's Black Chalk Ink Edger.

The Prima Press was perfect to use for the "Paris" letters.  I just stamped them on some kraft paper and then used a small tag punch (upside down) to frame the letters.  The skirt was just then layered on over some double sided tape to form a tutu. Adding some flowers just added that little something extra to the project.  Lastly tie some jute string through a hole, and the project is finished !!!!







 
 
Materials:

561437 - Interlude
561352 - Encore
560836 - Prima Press Holder
 
550349 - Prima Press Letter Stamps
551071 - Cling Stamp (Londonery Collection)
559380 - Cling Stamp ( Zephyr Collection)
890995 - Chalk Edger (Black Coal)



My last project combines my love of pastels using Prima's beautiful roses.  There is nothing quite like them.  I find loving Prima's products is not hard because everything works together so beautifully.

Designer Day with Heidi Kelley

Once again, that time is upon us! The arrival of a season that magically allows us all to turn into things that we only dream of. How do you see yourself? Are you mysterious? Are you royal? Are you neither? One of the reasons that I love to create is because it allows me to portray how I see things, including myself... you know, creating on paper what my outward appearance may not show.

  Prima's Firefly Collection allowed me here to put my personality on paper, capturing my love of color and all things whimsical.

 

 "I Am the Canvas" 

 

 

Supplies Used:

  • 845179 Firefly Paper "Aglow"
  • 845131 Firefly Paper "Fireflies"
  • 844431 Zephyr "Tabarette"
  • 561444 Serenade "White"
  • 561543 Prelude "Spring"
  • 562144 Bel Canto "Yellow"
  • 561581 Sourbette "Pink/Orange"
  • 561529 Overture "Harley"
  • 891435 Shabby Chic Treasures
  • 559700 Vintage Trinkets "Rondelle"
  • 559717 Vintage Trinkets "Rosarian"
  • 559731 Vintage Trinkets "Zephyr" 
  • 559243 Wood Embellishments "Zephyr"
  • 560898 Mask
  • 560997 Resist Canvas
  • 560843 Prima Press
  • 560836 Prima Press

 

Got boxes? I did... lots of little jewelry boxes, so I thought I would put them to good use in this next piece that I am going to show you. After watching my son line these up over and over, putting them together like a puzzle - I decided to glue them together just as he had laid them out  - and make it into a wall hanging.

 

This "Wall Garden" uses the lovely Soprano flowers, the Firefly Paper Collection, some script paper for a neutral balance, and of course lots of Prima's Vintage Treasures and Wooden Embellishments.

 

 

Supplies Used:

  • 845179 Firefly paper "Aglow"
  • 845131 Firefly paper "Fireflies"
  • 845186 Firefly paper "Magique"
  • 561666 Soprano flower "Pink"
  • 891558 Junkyard Findings "typo zippers"
  • 559618 Vintage Trinkets 
  • 891459 Shabby Chic Treasures "Marvelle"
  • 560676 Wood Embellishment "Wood Door #2"
  • 559205 Wooden Clocks & Tickets "Paris"
  • 559465 Clear Stamp "Rondelle 2"
  • 559410 Clear Stamp "Romance Novel" 
  • Ruby Violet spare pieces

And finally, because it IS that time of year, and because I dearly love owls...

"Sweet Thing" 

 Made from a paper mache egg from a local craft store, I cut an oval out the front before painting the inside and altering on the outside. She is totally inspired by candy corn :) so I nested some Prima Trinkets that I painted to look like candy corn into her belly.

 

 

The right picture above is a glance at the back of her, covered in paper from the Zephyr Collection, as well as flowers and a few feathers to match.

Isn't she fun?

 

Supplies Used:

  • 844509 Zephyr Paper "Parfait"
  • 844448 Zephyr Paper "Zanella"
  • 844493 Zephyr Paper "Zephyr"
  • 561659 Soprano Flower "White"
  • 562656 Au Naturale Flower
  • 562724 Au Naturale Flower
  • 930073 Vintage Trinkets

 

Once again wishing you a magical, fall season! It was wonderful to share with you again!!

xx Heidi

Dark queen prima

A little bit by Anna about her piece...What I really love about Prima embellishments is their great quality and beautiful design which allows me to alter them in the way I need for my projects. No matter what kind of medium I use: acrylic paint, gesso, sprays, watercolors - the flowers are always in good shape, looking exactly the way I wanted! For this project I used a selection of leaves and roses - but also one of my favorite things - my "leftover" trim pieces and canvas sheets which were torn into smaller strips which helped me build dimensional background.

Trinkets and Charms Feature

Metal charms and trinkets can add a finishing touch to a page, accent a card, or create beautiful jewelry. Today we would like to share some projects by our design team showcasing our metal embellishments on a few Prima layouts.

 

Beach

Here is a beachy themed layout by Larissa Albernaz. Here is what she says about her adorable page...Prima´s metals are the perfect touch to embellish any craft project. This time I wanted to play with them a little bit and that´s why I have used some Vintage Trinkets creatively by tying them to Jack´s fishing rod. I have also included some pins and a domino piece to my layout just for you to see how gorgeous Prima´s charms are.
