Gorgeous Mixed-Media Prima-Style

Today we have a beautiful mixed-media project by our very own Marie-Nicolas Alliot in France.

 

If you have never worked with mixed media you need to grab some of Prima's MM products! Our canvas pieces have a beautiful resist pattern, along with a whole variety of MM books, inserts and tags!

 

28 nov marie-nicolas

Marie-Nicolas even provided some FABULOUS tips on how to re-create this look!

 

Today, I will show you how I customize a Mixed-Media Book; covers and inside.

 

28 nov marie-nocolas2

To stain the cover: I use a color spray (Glimmer Mist or Dylusions.) I love the bright colors! After, I add some splashes with black china ink (India Ink.) China Ink is a very saturated black ink and adds lots of boldness. Now I just add some Prima flowers & crystals to complete my covers!


Inside Pages: Use watercolor to paint some of the inside canvas pages.

 

Then add some stamping with Prima's stamps and Chalk Edgers.

9220922mask_1_6x6_


Masking with Prima's new masks is FUN! Try a variety of art mediums with your mask. After masking add your titles-My titles are cut with my Silhouette Cameo from paper. (Use whatever color you love.)

After gluing the titles down, I add Glossy Accents over them for more shine and dimension.

If you have a die-cut machine you can make some custom touches. I added some die cut shapes that I made with my Silhouette Cameo on this inside page.

28 nov marie-nicolas3

I also added LOTS of masking with Prima's masks!

013


28 nov marie-nicolas14
Just pull out ALL of your art mediums and have fun with them! Prima's MM inside pages are perfect for trying new products and techniques.

 

28 nov marie-nicolas5

After coloring just add some embellishements : Prima flowers, wood buttons and crystals are perfect! Little things like these will customize this album. :-) Marie-Nicolas

28 nov marie-nicolas6

Here are some more of the gorgeous inside pages to the album!

It's Scraplift Time!

Do you ever look at a layout that you LOVE and want to make one like it, but keep it in YOUR style?

 

Well, we hope to have some inpiration for you! Once a month we post a fabulous layout and ask our design team to scraplift it. They can choose anything on the layout that inspires them...it could be the color scheme, art techniques, products used, scrap style, basic sketch, or the title.

 

We love what our team has done each month! It has pushed some a bit out of their comfort zone (with fabulous results), it has opened up NEW ways to use products, and it has taught us how to really be inspired by one another. Isn't that what it's all about anyway?

 

I_am_so_happy

This month we have this gorgeous project by Magda Bolinska. Magda is the queen of stamping...and she layers a lot of techqniues without creating a lot of bulk. Her layouts are whimsically messy and fun! We knew this would be a GREAT layout to scraplift.

......................................................................................

 

27 nov leslie

Leslie Ashe pulled out a gorgeous palette of colors for her scraplift! Adding masking like Magda's, as well as stamping touches, Leslie stayed in her own style, but added a sweet Magda influence!

 

27 nov leslie2

"Magda’s page inspired me by her attention to detail in her design. I love the way she free handedly makes her art so beautiful! And I love polka dots. When I saw Magda’s design with the polka dots, I KNEW I wanted to include that in my design as my main feature." ~Leslie
 

 

Supplies:
  • Romance Novel Messenger Paper # 844981
  • Zephyr Celeste Paper # 844479
  • Rosarian Old Garden Paper # 844516
  • Rosarian Felicity Paper # 844561
  • Rondelle Sovienne Paper # 844646

27 nov larissa

Larissa Albernaz loved Magda's page! Just read what inspired her:

"Inspired by Magda´s page, I decided to use the same paper collection, title and materials to recreate mine. I also created a textured background by overlapping some stamps, as she did, and by adding some art mediums and masking techniques to it."

  • Washi Tape: 561154
  • Alphabet Stickers: 555399
  • Chipboards: 555276

27 nov solange
Solange Marques kept her signature look, but added a few of Magda's touches to make this stunning layout! Solange used basic sketch for placement of her photo, title, and artsy touches (like gesso, splashes of paint and misting), but kept the color palette, paper choices, and photo her own. What a great meshing of the two!

27 nov janna
Janna Werner is our clean and simple gal who rocks the use of white space! We knew this scraplift would be a challenge, but were excited to see what she would come up with.

Here´s what inspired Janna:
I love Magda´s style - she is amazing with all her details and craziness on the page. I am a rather clean scrapper, I need things to be "organized" and clear on my page. It was very challenging for me to adapt Magda´s style to mine - trying to create a clean page with all the different elements on her layout. Compared to her page, mine looks quite naked, lol, but I love using lots of white space."

Prima Materials:
  • alphabet stickers - 53743
  • buttons - 550738
  • tiny alphabet stickers - 550141
  • clear tape IOD - 811013
  • Songbird collection - tag it - 844073
  • Songbird collection - sunrise - 844028
  • Songbird collection - zephyr - 844035
  • Songbird collection - composition - 844097
  • Songbird collection - collage - 844011
......................................................................................
So next time you see a Prima layout that you love, just pick the elements that speak to you and try them on your next project!
That's why we are here...to INSPIRE YOU!

Simple to Stupendous!

There are simple, clean scrappers and those who love to add lots of embellishments! We love seeing both styles so we asked the talented Steph Devlin to show us how she would create both versions with her own signature touches.

 

Simple to Stupendous


by Steph Devlin

 

26 nov steph
 

Steph chose the gorgeous Firefly papers as the base for her layout. Adding one stunning photo keeps the layout clean and focused.

 

Steph also added a sweet masking technique to offset her trio of embellies.

 

Tip: A simple chipboard title running up the side of the photo finishes off the design with style.

 

26 nov steph2
 

To pop this layout up a notch Steph allowed more flowers to flow up the page, adding a wood bird, typo zipper pull and another birdcage.

Tip: Switch out the title or switch the orientation to help balance the extra embellishments.

26 nov steph3

Add a brightly-colored crystal swirl for extra pop at the bottom of your page!

Prima Products:

  • 845148 - Seeker - Firefly
  • 845186 - Delight - Firefly
  • 561581- Soubrette
  • 548858 - Corrine

"Thanks Book"
An altered art journal for my family.
Every year we will pass this journal around, and write down the things we are grateful for. Then, the following year we will read what it was we were grateful for, the year before. What a wonderful thing to have years down the road! ~ Heidi

"Thankful For You" card

Mixing and matching all the gorgeous Prima flowers is one of my favorite things to do!  I scattered all of my fall-colored flowers on my desk and then just started picking them and placing them on my card front until I had the look I was going for.  Don't be afraid to mix & match all the different flower options, including paper & fabric together!! ~Lea

"I used every colour from Prima's colour palette. It's totally amazing and energy combined!!! I framed one of my fall photos on canvas. The background is made with a brick mask, distress ink, and Prima chalk inks using a dry brush technique. Because it's a fall theme I used many leaves. Those Prima leaves are amazing!!!

12 Days of Christmas: Grand Finale!

 

12 days of xmas cards

We hope you have enjoyed our Christmas Card feature! We would LOVE to have you join in. Just make a card based on one of our samples and post it anywhere online. Link us in the comments section for the day you chose.

 

We have PRIZES for 12 lucky winners to be awarded on November 30th! (See details below on how to join in.)

 

Today we are delighted to show off Steph Devlin's delightfully elegant card for the last day in our card challenge.

12 nov steph




Noel Card Step-by-Step:

1.      Cut your card shape from your chosen die.  I have layered my card base to give it a multi-faceted look.
2.      Using your Prima Flourish Stamp, stamp the top Left and Right hand corners with a Chalk Edger.
3.      Cut Journaling card in half and adhere to base.
4.      Add Say It In Crystal Flourishes on each side.
5.      Cut a Paper Snowflake (I used Tim Holtz Die) assemble and ink.  Pop glue on the edges and dip the ends in glitter.
6.      With your large SIIC Square peel off backing and adhere in a diamond shape to card in centre.
7.      Adhere your Paper Snowflake.

12 nov steph2

8.      I have used a clear transparent Snowflake as my next layer.
9.      Now cut out your smaller Say It In Crystals Square but leave it on transparency.  This gives the SIIC strength to support more layers.
10.     Adhere to centre of snowflake embellishment.
11.     Either punch a snowflake or use a chipboard snowflake and stamp with Embossing Ink.
12.     I have used heat and set powder next.  Heat with heat tool till melted and then sprinkle glitter over the snowflake.  Allow to dry.
13.     Once dry adhere to centre of layered snowflake.
14.     Add SIIC, clear jewel.
15.     Lastly use seam binding for a bow, and a chipboard title to finish off your card.



12 nov steph3



Tip: Here is an extra close up of the snowflake embellishment in different light just so you can see how I used the Say It In Crystals on the backing it comes with. This is a fantastic idea if you love creating in multiple layers.

12 Days of Christmas: Day 8!

 

12 days of xmas cards

Here we are with DAY 8 for our card challenge with Larissa Albernaz! We love the way she recycled a notecard box to make a gorgeous 3-D card.

13 nov larissa

"I created a dimensional card to surprise someone special this season by taking advantage of one journaling notecard set box.
Prima´s products are so beautifully packaged that I simply wanted to do something with the gorgeous littles boxes that used to contain Prima´s notecards.

I chose the "Celebrate with Jack and Jill" line to decorate my box.

It´s super fun and easy to dress it up."

13 nov larissa3


Instructions:

1. Cut 2 pieces of paper to adhere to the front and back side of the box and other two pieces for the inside.
2. Chalk the edges of each piece of paper to add more contrast and a touch of color.
3. Choose some pattern cutouts taken from any Prima´s patterned paper.
4. Adhere them by using foam tape to your box.
5. Embellish everything with "Say it in Crystals", flowers, pebbles, chipboards and shabby resins.
6. Add your title.
7. Finish up by using inks and pains to get a textured colorful look.

12 Days of Christmas: Day 3

 

12 days of xmas cards

Here we are with DAY 3 for our card challenge by Felicity Wilson!

It's a magical time of the year! I love watching the children in the shops, admiring all the Christmas decorations, watching the lights flicker on the Christmas trees, and seeing them sing along to Christmas Carols.


Its the time of the year that everyone is smiling, people are giving, and showing care to one another.


It's truly a magical time of the year!!



I have created a Christmas card with lots of crystals and Firefly papers. The Firefly papers aren't Christmas papers as such, nor are they the traditional red and green colour, but to me, the colours, the patterns, the swirls, all seem magical and whimsical.  Don't you think they would make a perfect card or even a perfect page to show that Christmas is magical??

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is a little step-by-step to help you along with your Christmas card making this season!!

 Step 1 - Create lots of layers as your background. Cut up 2 pieces of paper and distress some fibers. Use gauze in layers till you are happy, then glue them down. Then grab your Poppies and Peonies mask, some texture paste and some sprays.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2 - Now that we have a background, let's embellish! I started by cutting two strips of paper, then set them on top for my 3 flowers to sit on. I then cut some stars, put them on a string to hang them, adding a Say it in Crystal to add magic to the card! Not forgetting to add your title and little more magic with a ribbon bow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3 - Grab your crayons and pencils and highlight areas. I highlighted the mask to make it pop a bit more, the stars and the word "Christmas"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I hope you all find the magic in Christmas this season!!~ Felicity

12 Days of Christmas: Day 2

12 days of xmas cards

Here we are with DAY 2 by Brit Sviggum!

 

6 nov brit,jpg

 

Britt brought out chilling cool tones on this stunning Winter-themed tag!

 

1. Use a tag base and add canvas on top. Both pieces are from Prima's Mixed Media Kit.

2. Color with your favorite misting spray.

3. Set Prima's gear mask on top and spread gesso over the pattern in random areas. Let dry. When the gesso is dry it will soak up a bit of the color from the tag.

4. Decorate with Prima's gorgeous flowers in blue tones and lots of fresh, crisp white!
