Prima May Bap

Lots of Layers and some Mixed Media!!
Hi all and welcome to my blog!!
Well I have been busy and keeping my
promise to update regularly !!
Life throws us some doozies as we all know
and I guess we can get caught up with all
the negative stuff and forget
to "Stop And smell the roses"
So I have been trying to put my not so happy
thoughts into my art....as you do!!
Well it's what makes us happy, me happy :)!!
So I have been having a go at this yummy
"Mixed Media", it's funny
Been doing it for as long as I have been doing my art
I guess but it's something that we all incorporate
into our cards/ layouts without even realising!!
Stamping ,painting, sploshing, stencilling,
using fabrics, papers ect....
So anyways I thought I'd have some fun
with this and really make my page POP
so I doodled, painted, splotched (lol) even threw in some
sequins for good measure!!
Love these photos, took these of my son and his "BF",
down at our park, they're in a cardboard box !!
They had a free family day and there was a maze made out of
huge boxes ....how to entertain kids for ages...BOXES!!!
Great day and they loved this maze!!
So enough rambling, I came up with this LO and am entering
it into Prima's May Bap
Here's their awesome sketch ...

Cool hey!!
and here are my photos of my interpretation....
Hope you enjoy!!

The sketch called for some check patterns, so
of course used my 2nd fav stencil Fin's checks....
sploshed that around with some gesso, and covered that
with some glimmer mists and silks "Guatemalan Green", 
Dragonfly, trunk bay glimmers!!
Modelling paste with the new paint splots prima stencil
Sorry my bad forgot the name shhh!!

Cut out some hearts, butterflies and leaves with white glitter paper
my stash... incorporated some yummy
resins and lushes flowers Prima, Prima Baby!!
Ohh and had a bit of fun with their black wire too...

Close Ups!!

I have a love for corrugated card too so threw some of that in for an extra layer
Or two!! Doily's and some divine chippy corners  !!


So love the colours in this, they really bring the colours in the photos out!!
Hope you enjoyed this
Please  Leave some love (wink, wink:)!!)
And have a great week...till we meet again xxx

Surprise ..lol

These papers are just gorgeous
"Botanical Tea"

Fussy cut my way through those to die for roses
added some butterflies "Cheery Lynn's"
 The bird cage  and small birds fluttering around are
from Impression obsession

A top view with my seam binding, died with
Tim Holtz stains, antique linen, vintage photo and some brass!!
I ran some lace over it and painted goose bumps over that,
waited for it to dry and then stained it..
You can see the spotty effect its made..too cool!!

Prima's May Product Picks.....

                         Hi Everyone, Hope you all enjoyed Mother's Day and have had a wonderful week!!
     Thank you for joining me and welcome to my Blog!!
I have been busy !!
"Paper Mache"

        Had me some messy fun with this, let me tell you!!
               Four days it has actually taken me just to make balloon!!
Yes I know why!!
 Well, I'm nuts... no, well yes , but with the time to dry between layers and sanding, painting then covering it with Prima papers huh, I'm slightly exhausted hahaaa!!
So I "really " hope you like it!!
I thought I'd enter it in the Prima mood board may PP!
here is the mood board
And here's My Take.....
Warning lots of photos!!
Well I had to share!! (wink!!)

Ok "helpful Harry" , my son got to my camera....don't know when,
but......I'm clicking away and uploading as fast as one could and it's not until
I'm re reading my blog I've noticed my shots aren't well their best!!
Then noticed my fav settings have been fiddled with, how Mr. Smarty pants
worked this out beats me, but LOL!! Anyway I am attempting to re shoot tomorrow!! 

So some products used.....haaahaa...Prima Of Course!! ( cheeky Wink!!)
The papers used are a mixture of Princess collection, flowers are sprayed with
various glimmers ...( I know no bloom sprays for me just yet.....budget not up to it..
boo hooo!!)
Trims are Prima and some of my old stash, Oh and found the
most gorgeous crotched doliy in our OP shop, 20 cents, I couldn't believe it!!

I've used the Butterfly stencil with some model paste for texture
this was a challenge in itself....ever tried to stencil on a rounded surface??
But so happy it turned out!!
Oh when you heat it with heat tool just stay with it a little longer
than you would normally to dry it, and it will puff up adding a great 3d effect!!

I have added various butterflies from Martha, through to Cheery Lynn dies,
added some pearls for a shabby highlight and oh yes I have
painted the cream Prima flowers with some glimmer glam, so everything is

Of course some finishing touches with some Prima resins yummo!!
and their gorgeous chippies too!!

I used twine to make the scallops around the middle of the balloon
and to connect the basket, I forgot to put my Prima doll in the basket too....
Good Lordy I was doing well HEY!! LOL

I also added a net over the top of my hot air balloon, as when I was researching
I noticed a lot of the vintage balloons have netting, so an old
gift packaging came in real handy!! LOL

This is it in full view!! I have weaved Prima's  Princess collection into a basket!!

I will get back to you with some more details...have to pick my son up from school!!
