Guest Designer...Adrienne Ford !!!

This month we have a very talented artist to share with you. Adrienne Ford has a collection of projects as well as a fun tutorial that will get your creativity flowing. 

November 2010 140

We love how Adrienne has used Prima's flowers and embellishments and we know you will as well...

July and Prima 141

I came across this newborn photo of my DS recently and just had to find time to scrap it. The similarities between my two little ones faces at birth is striking! I wanted my photo to be the main focus of my layout, therefore I used a beautiful array of Prima product to wrap this photo of my son like a warm hug.

I simply could not wait to scrap pictures of our recent family vacation to the beach! It was my daughter's first time there and she looks simply adorable checking out the sand and surf. In creating this layout I wanted a soft look to mimic the sand, so I white washed many of my elements, and added what I thought to be nautical elements like shells, metal birds and cheesecloth (fish netting).

Beach Babe Tutorial
Prima 3 001

1. I began my layout by taking Prima's Fairy Belle Paper and creating a unique border with my paper punch. I did this in a haphazard way- no rhyme or reason. I purposely wanted it to look jagged and uneven in some places to give a care-free look. You can also take some type to scrunch the rest of the border that was left un-punched and ink the edged for a more defined look. Mount to cardstock or patterned paper.

Prima 3 002

2. I then mapped out which area on my paper I wanted to "white wash" with my Gesso. Using my paintbrush, I layered my Gesso on using a back and forth motion. I decided to create my design almost in the shape of a T, but any design will do!

Prima 3 008

3. Once your Gesso has dried you can add misting to your project! I tend to add my mists lightest to darkest, drying between colors and soaking up any unwanted muddy-ing of colors. If you don't like the results, you can always go over it again with another layer of Gesso.

Prima 3 012

4. Once your misting is dry, you can go about stamping your misted area. This can be as subtle or dramatic as you would like. During this step I tend to stamp dark in the middle to light as I reach the border where the Gesso stops. I also like to subtly stamp outside of the Gesso'd area so stamping doesn't stop so suddenly and have a hard edge.

Prima 3 005

5. For a more soft look, white wash your flowers and elements with Gesso. You can do this before or after you glue. I tend to white wash my flowers to help the flower blend together like a garden.

July and Prima 152

6. Begin to add your flowers and embellishments. For this layout I wanted to further emphasize my beach-y look so I added a natural color of cheesecloth over top my elements stretching in some areas for a more weathered look. Add other nautical elements and finishing touched to your liking and you are done!

  • Corine Collection #548834
  • Fairybelle Colletion- La Ronde Paper #950156

July and Prima 163

For this particular layout the beautiful Nature Garden paper line was a wonderful jumping off point, as I played off the florals and patchwork-like blocks in the paper. Using various art mediums I misted and inked the background to prepare it for some stamping for added interest. I also used Prima's sweet resin bridge to create a focal point to draw the eye towards the photo and then placed all my gorgeous flowers around it like a sunny garden.

July and Prima 179

I just adore the Nature Garden Collection. This particular paper goes beautiful with my photo like a perfect match! The dark colored paper used in conjunction with the black and white Bretton Vine are a stunning contrast to the colorful mix of flowers I tucked within it. Tears and distressing of the outer edge of the paper further juxtaposed the bright florals used within my cluster.

Need Some Inspiration?

Here are some amazing internationally-inspired classes just for YOU!


Check out this new adventure with Donna Downey and a few of our Prima gals! Click here for details!







One of the questions I get asked most often is, “where is the best place that you have traveled to?” My answer is always the same…regardless of where in the world I am, it is the people and the relationships made that make a life long impact on me. That said, I have been blessed enough to travel the globe, meet and build relationships with other creatives like myself, see and experience cultures and be present as the common threads tied so many of these experiences together because no matter the native tongue of each country we all communicate our passion through ART.

Each country I have visited and culture brings a new and intrinsically unique spin on the creative process, impacting on not only design style but the availability of product. In the United States we are often spoiled by the immediacy in which we can acquire creative mediums and products, while other cultures are often, out of necessity, stretching their creativity by finding new inventive ways to use the products that they do have. Because I have been fortunate enough to create with and be introduced to so many amazingly talented people through my 10 years of travel, I wanted to bring these artists and a bit of their culture to a more global venue and I cannot think of anything more global than the internet. 

I have asked 4 very talented artists to accompany me in this first workshop in the series. I shipped each artist a big box of my products and asked them to video record their creative process. For some this was their first time in front of the camera, for others it was old hat…their only instruction was that they had to use some part of every product in the box. With no limitations on their creative styles, additional products or finished result, the results were authentically beautifully representing each artist and showcasing their stylistic niches. I watched each artist create absolutely in awe of their creative process and how each artist transformed my products.

I have no doubt that you too will be just as blown away as I was watching them create.

this will be an experience like none the world becomes just that much smaller and the talents from around the globe share with you their unique ideas as they each assemble dynamic mixed-media books step-by-step right in your own home.

each artist's video is approximately 1.5-2 hours in length and details their process from start to finish, allowing you to watch all the way through, create along side her or interpret her ideas in your own style.

registration is OPEN now!

and is offered at an incredible price


{5 workshops for the price of 1... incredible right!!!} 

Here is a direct link to the kit!

 I am honored to introduce you to the artists in my new online workshop series Internationally INSPIRED.

This gorgeous fancy new line is perfect to celebrate love and Paris! Its bright colors and beautiful imagery were the perfect touch to keep my memories in style.I also included one stripe of paper that I previously worked with one of Prima´s new stencils, gesso and sprays then I just have added some layers of papers and those incredibly pretty embellishments."

Prima 3 026
Here is what Adrienne had to say about her adorable page:
For July's BAP I decided to go more playful! I enjoy misting and making my backgrounds unique and one of a kind- Prima's masks and stamps help make the job a piece of cake! I also altered my white flowers by misting them a bit to achieve the perfect color I need for my layout. I finished it up with some black wire and made some quirky twists for added interest.

I very much enjoyed playing with Prima's July PPP!
