Grow- Prima Springtime Frame

For my Giveaway press HERE

I just love these frames that Ingvild Bolme created for Prima last year.
I've had some of them sitting in my closet and I just thought that a spring themed project was the perfect idea for the frame.

I cut around a photo of my family and propped it up inside the frame. 

Then I embellished the frame with matching Prima flowers, vines and resins.

Faith- Mixed Media Tag with Video

So lately I've been in a Mixed Media craze obsession. I've been creating projects with lots of texture and I'm especially fond of Prima's Finnabair Graphite texture paste.
I just love the texture and contrast it gives. It makes every project look amazingly different.

This tag below is on the Prima Marketing blog today and it uses Sandra Evertson's relics and Finnabair's Mixed media products from Prima.

 I have a step by step video tutorial below on how I created this tag.

I really loved creating this mixed media tag. Sandra Evertson's Relics and Artifacts go so well with Finnabair's Mixed Media products. I wanted to design somethings that is meaningful to me and the word faith fit perfectly with the theme.

Sharon Laakkonen one of the sweetest people I met online, wrote an inspiring message on the Prima Blog regarding my piece and its exactly the way I felt about it while I was creating it. 
Here is the quote below:

"Today's beautiful piece by Keren explores the creativity you can attain when combining different pieces together to express your faith and individual style, with a message that reaches down to where you are right now. That is what papercrafting is all about...creating pieces from your heart that tell a story, that speak without words, that remind you of the things that really matter. If you are in a tough spot, or really discouraged right now, we hope this piece brings you hope and joy! There are always better days ahead!"

and so like Sharon said, I really hope this piece not only inspires you creatively but I hope it brings you some peace and hope in your lives.
