I love seeing the Prima focused projects this month, so many of Prima’s products are wonderfully mistable. My first project is a gift box. When I took a pair of earring to a jeweler for repairs, they gave them back to me in this fancy white leather box. I didn’t want to just toss it, so I altered into a little gift box.
I painted the sides of the box with Glimmer Glam (Midnight Rendezvous). I painted to top of the box with a mix of Glimmer Glam (Organic Garden and Tide Pool) and Glimmer Glaze (Waterfall and Wicked). I wrapped a Prima felt ribbon around the box and then painted a little Glam (Chandelier) on it. For the flower, I used some of the new Prima canvas pieces combined with a white paper flower. I sprayed both the canvas and paper flowers with Glimmer Mist (Coral Reef, Tiger Lily, Vintage Pink, and Lemon Zest). Then I layered them and added some glittery accents with Glimmer Glam (Chandelier and Espresso Bean). Finally, to complete the box, I added a “thank you” rub-on.
On this next project, I altered some Prima Paintables paper. This paper works so nicely with Tattered Angels paints. First I stamped the paper with clear embossing ink to create some resists. The stamps I used are from Prima (Notary and Hex Net). I painted the details on the paper with Glimmer Glam (Big Apple and Organic Garden) and Glimmer Glaze (Orange Crush). Then I sprayed the background with Glimmer Mist (Aquamarine and Lemon Zest). The letters were altered with the same Glazes and Glams that were used on the flowers.
On my last project, I used another piece of Prima Paintables. After I painted the flowers and leaves, I embossed them with clear embossing power to give them a glossy finish. The colors I used to paint the flowers were Glimmer Glam (Big Apple and Organic Garden), Glimmer Glaze (Orange Crush), and Glimmer Mist (Lemon Zest). Then I sprayed the background with Glimmer Mist (Patina, Turquoise Blue, and Lemon Zest). I painted the chipboard circles and letter with the same Glazes and Glam used on the paper.
OK – that’s it for me today, thanks for stopping by the blog today. It’s been raining none stop here in DC, hope it’s nicer where you are :) Patty
