Designer Day with Stacey Young

Hello everyone, it's been such a long time since I had my last post here, so I am totally thrilled to share with you some of my Prima creations. The first 3 creations were created for CHAS and haven't been shared here yet and my last creation is a new layout with a short step x step process for you to try. So lets get to it.

First up is a layout featuring the Rondelle collection. I rarely create on a dark background but this piece of paper really helped me create something a little more "boyish" out of this line. I loved the diamond shape paper which I cut up, distressed and added them to my page with foam tape for dimension.

 

Happy-Summer-CHA-2012

 

The flowers this release would have to be some of my favourites ever, the colours, the roses!! I tell you, I was in Prima flower heaven creating for CHA this year.

Product list:


#559007 Rondelle Alphabet Stickers
#844615 Rondelle Collection "Cabriole"
#844646 Rondelle Collection "Sovienne"
#844639 Rondelle Collection "Etude"
#844622 Rondelle Collection "Pavanne"
#891480 Fly Away Shabby Chic Resin
#559373 Tea Thyme Cling Stamps
#559687 Romance Novel Vintage Trinkets

#561550 Prelude
#561475 Serenade
#561369 Encore
#561352 Encore
#561482 Serenade
#561413 Prelude

 

 

Next up is a canvas mixed media piece I created. I used a new Donna Downey mask here in my background along with some new trinkets, flowers and my own personal touch of the seashells. I kept the tone of this layout very natural and whitewashed.

Product list:

#560522 SIIC

#562649 Au Naturale
#562687 Au Naturale
#561574 Soubrette 
#5613252 Encore

 

If you have got your hands on the new Prima products then you may have noticed in some of the packaging a pennant banner you can cut up. I loved the patterns in this so much I added my own little banner to this trinket box I altered. Add loads of new flowers to the top along with some new resin pieces and there you have a pretty new trinket box.

Product list:

#561994 Aria
#562151 Bel Canto
#561482 Serenade
#561369 Encore
#561406 Interlude
#891480 Fly Away Shabby Chic Resin
#891497 Parlor Shabby Chic Resin

 

Lastly I have a recent layout to share with you plus a short tutorial on how I created the background. I used a mixture of the new line "Zephyr" and a little bit of Almanac to neutralise the background. I really love the brights of the Zephyr collection but I only took the blues and yellows from the collection to match in with my picture.

 

 

023-(6)


020-(5)

 

First step, using a Donna Downey mask, I applied gesso to it in 2 sections on my background piece of paper. One in the bottom right hand corner and the other halfway up the page on the left hand side bearing in mind that some of the mask effect would be covered.


003-(13)


Next up I applied some mists to the centre of the page and also allowed the mist to run down the page.

 

 

006-(14)


I tore a section of the page a short way up on the left hand side with my fingers and curled the edges over. I cut out a square shaped piece of paper and placed it under the torn section.

 

008-(11)



This is were I begin my layering. I tore paper and distressed the edges allowing all of the sides to curl up. I also tore a piece of calico letting the threads hang off the edges. I then applied a journal note and lastly added a long piece of string made into a lasso for my picture to sit on. At this point you can see the texture this as already made to the creation.

 

 

009-(10)


I distressed the whole way around the layout and placed another piece of paper under it. This also helps with a weighty layout and keeping it firm and flat. I tore small pieces of cardboard and placed them in various areas of my layout. These were then whitewashed with Gesso.

 

 

010-(11)


I then proceeded to add my photo along with all of the extra embellishments, flowers, buttons and trinkets.

 

 

015-(8)


Product List:

 

#844486 Zephyr "Tempore"

#844509 Zephyr "Parfait"

#844493 Zephyr "Zephyr"

#844127 Almanac "Shaffer"

#559731 Vintage Trinkets Zephyr

#543372 SUmmer Carnation

Designer Day with Solange Marques!!!


Hi, I am Solange Marques and I am very happy to be here and share some of my works with you. It’s a great pleasure and I am so happy to be a designer for Prima.
I love to use paints and texture in my layouts and I melt the photos with the background. I love mixing a lot of techniques and products in my pages, such as acrylic paints, watercolor, stamps, molding paste, and acrylic gesso. I love the artsy style and Prima products are
perfect for this!

I’ve created some projects using the new Prima collections. These collections are wonderful and I’ll show works with some of them.
I’ll start with Tea Thyme collection. A delicate collection with soft colors.
 


I’ve created a page where I prolonged the photo with paints (I love to do this) and added some flowers and crystals. This is my granddaughter playing with the birds at the park.

Designer Day with Juliana Montoya

Hey Everyone!!!! My name is Juliana Montoya and I am very exited to share with you a little bit about me.  First, I want to start by saying that being a designer for Prima is a dream come true.  I am so grateful and excited about this opportunity and like many of you I have been a fan of Prima since day one.  I started scrap booking about two years ago and I fell in love with it the very first day.  From a very young age I started playing with papers, flowers and paint.... I love painting too :) Many times during my school years, I got in trouble because I kept playing with my books and making little things out of the pages and added any stickers I could find.. I have always loved to work with my hands and let my imagination go.......and create.



I love to create anything from cards, tags, layouts, mini albums, mixed media to altered projects.  I was born and raised in Costa Rica and grew up surrounded by nature, warm beaches, animals and beautiful peaceful landscapes, therefore, I enjoy anything outdoors.  I love hiking, camping, swimming and playing with my two little fur balls (Kimbo & Kuki), my two babies kittens. I predominately like the soft shabby chic and vintage style, however, I do love to challenge myself by working with many other different colors and styles.

Besides my passion for scrap booking I also enjoy other hobbies such as reading, writing, photography, dancing, singing, traveling and of course antique shopping.  I love to visit a lot of different vintage/antique shops and finding very unique items.... many of them, I use for altering or to inspire me to create.

I love meeting and learning from other people and I really do look forward to sharing my work with you all so please stop by my Blog anytime... I would love to see you there.  I love to share my work through videos as well, so I invite you to follow me on my Youtube Channel 

Now let's take a look at a few things that I created for Prima.  I am loving all of the new collection from this summer release.  I love every collection but of course, I do have a few favorites. I will start with my all time favorite collection, Tea Thyme.

I created this Shabby Chic Configuration Box with a little twist.  Instead of using a box I used a frame that way it displays better on my wall.  I used many different embellishments and flowers from the collection.  I had so much fun putting this together and the Prima embellishments were a perfect fit :)

Our August Guest Designer Camilla Ekman

This month we are excited to share with you our Guest Designer Camilla Ekman. We are so happy she agreed to join us and share a couple of her beautiful projects. 

 

It is not easy being a teenager. It is not always easy to be the mother of a teenager. But I know I am so blessed to have my beautiful teenager, to have the privilege to guide her from childhood into adulthood. 

Teenager

This is my layout celebrating my beautiful teenager. I have used the soft coloured Songbird collection.

Here is a step-by-step guide to how I made my page:

1
 

1. Use a mask in two opposite corners and apply some white gesso.

2
 

2. Use the green paper as a frame and then add some stripes of pink and beige papers. I have used border punches to get a softer and more delicate look.

3
 

3. Create a photo mat by putting a doily and two tags behind the photos.

4
 

4. Adhere the photos and the photomat to the page.

5
 

5. Make a flower cluster to the left bottom of the photos and also add a single flower to the right of the photo to balance the page.

6
 

6. I added a piece of paper saying love to the Vintage Trinkets.

8

7. The beautiful resin pieces fits my theme perfectly.

8. As you can see, I placed the embellishments among the flowers.

9. I cut out a bird and a branch from one of the Songbird papers and added them at the flowers. I also added a few leaves. And the last thing I added was the title.

10

10. To finish my page off, I added a bit of gesso here and there.

I hope you enjoyed my page!

Besvikelse

My darling small niece was all dressed up in her bathing suit. She was waiting devotionally by the sprinkler. The water starts to spray. Then her courage is totally gone and she starts to cry. The comfort of being in her mother's arms makes her calm.

Scraplift feature-HegeAL

"I love this boy's page Solange made. But since it is a scraplift challenge I thought it would be fun to show off how we can scraplift someones great layout and still make it absolutely different. And still recognize the placements og the elements! I had so much fun playing with different mixed media on this one. Not something I usually do. Thank you so much for the inspiration, Solange! Love your style, girl!"

Designer Day with Anna-Maria Wolniak

Hi everybody!!! It has been a long time since my last visit here. I am happy that I can be here with you one more year! For today I prepared for you some 'Craftsman' inspirations. You already know this awesome collection as the best for your men - it's true, the papers are made for them but I would like to show you the feminine side of this collection.

Just to remind you, here is the poster of the 'Craftsman' goodies:

 

SneakPeek

 

What do you like the most? Well my favorites are the bulbs and the beautiful stamps! They are so purposeful and they fit everything :) The paper palette is really cool, I looove the navy shades on it... also the browns looks good.

Where to start - maybe we will start from the boyish page.

 

Explore small

 

I made this layout inspired by Marcy Penner's work. I made it on the simple cardstock base, and the light motif of this page is coming from the pictures - STARS, I adore them!

Explore detail (2) 

I used the Wood star button and metal red button as embellishments. 

Explore detail (1) 

I also glued a little bulb with 'ME' on it :)

Explore detail (3)

Supplies 

  • Papers: ‘Craftsman’ Collection:
  • ‘Tools of the Trade’ 844752, ‘Gear Up’ 844813, ‘Engineer’ 844776, and baige cardstock for the base

  • Junkyard Findings ‘small typo bulbs’ 891541
  • Prima Buttons ‘Craftsman’ 559793
  • Clear Stamps: ‘Craftsman’ 559403, 559397
  • Alphabet Stickers 544232

 

Now it's time for girlish layout. Say what you want but I think that the 'Craftsman' collection is simply designed for feminine pages! Look!

 

All about me

I added the resist flower canvas, some stamped leaves and the spots of gold glitter...

 

All about Me - details (2small)

Here and there I used a little gesso and washi tapes as well as  watercolour paint! They give the layout an artsy touch :)

All about Me - details (1)small

Ok, so add the girlish things like: flowers, delicate stamps and a piece of vellum... also you will have to use a very girly photo for the best results :) These are products I used to make this layout:

Supplies: 

  • Papers ‘Craftsman’ collection:
  • ‘Engineer’ 844776, ‘Tools of the Trade’ 844752, ‘Gear Up’ 844813,

Mixed Media Magic...

Friday is full of fun techniques and unique ideas. Mixed Media is an awesome way to use your scrapbook supplies for pieces of artwork, home decor, or something a little outside the box.

 

Take a look at how our amazing design team used Prima products to create one of a kind pieces. 

IMGP2485

This beautiful wall hanging was created by Marie-Nicolas, 

To make this frame, Marie-Nicolas used Adirondack Ranger Inks Sunset Yellow for the background, then she added colors with Donna Downey's Masks with different inks. The title is cut out of Rosarian paper then she added Ranger Glossy accent for more texture. To finish her title she used the wood letters and clothes pins.
