Prima Flower Feature

My baby boy featured over on the Prima blog the other day in a flower feature.  My favourite Prima product ever is the flowers, always will be.....I'm a flower girl for sure :)  I just had to put my hand up to create for this feature!

Check out the Blog to see more beautiful inspiration!

"Jagger - 6 months" 

Some Closeups -

I have also got a little sneaky peek to share of my creative process..............

Step 1.  The background - Gesso, Stencil with paste and then apply your mists.

Step 2.  Photomat - Lots of square pieces of paper (distressed on the edges) layered for your photo to sit on.  A little bit of Calico and Hessian for added texture and shabbiness :)

Step 3. Add twine and then your photo.   

Step 4.  I add the wirey floral vine here (you can get from you florist),  I am at the end of my batch so it's all just falling apart, I just wrapped more twine around it to keep it in tact!

Step 5.  I start to apply my keep in mind I never glue them down straight away.  I always fiddle with them for a little bit and when I am happy with their placement, I will then adhere.

Step 6.  More flowers and a little bit of cheesecloth tucked in there too.

Step 7.   When I have all of my florals in place.  I will then dig out all of my mixed media products once again and add more and more texture.  Such as glitter, Art Stones, more misting and Gesso to the flower tips.

I hope you liked my little how to on my process!

I just have to spam you with these super cute pics of Jagger I just edited from our recent time over the holidays at the beach :)

I am really loving using my Nikon again!!  I forgot what amazing pictures it took ;)

Prima Sweet Peppermint - Jagger is ONE!

My Sweet Peppermint creation made it's way to the Prima Blog sure to check out all the lovely ideas all the girls come up in the Sweet Peppermint feature.

"I have been itching to create with this gorgeous Christmas collection.  The colours are so sweet.  Of course, I picked an adorable pic of my Jagger from last Christmas to create a this scrapbook page.  I pulled a lot of the mint colours out of the collection and also added in hints of red.  I layered lots of flowers from the collection, along with some Chipboard andEphemera.   I gave it some finishing touches by adding the Silver Micro Beads to some of the flower petals and a couple of mint Sweet Peppermint Say It In Crystals.  I can't wait to play with this collection again, it really is stunning."

'Joy & Kisses'

Thankyou mini canvas - Prima Marketing

Another new Prima Marketing creation today :)  

"For my foil creation today I created a 'Thankyou' Canvas which I gifted to a friend.  This new foil is so funky, it shimmers off loads of different colours but also throws out a Rose Gold colour that matched perfectly with the other colours in the canvas.  I also used the Intergalactic foil on top of the Adhesive Rubon music notes (to the left of the embellishments) for added shimmer and shine. Finish off with some pretty Prima blooms and leaves."
