Brave Heart- Prima's Pin Spin

So its Pin Spin time on the Prima blog today.
I chose an image from Pinterest and created a layout inspired by that image.

Here is my project below called Brave Heart:

Below is the image I got inspired by. I loved the whimsical feel of this picture, it was magical and with universal power. I got inspired by the magic and by the colours of the image.

This layout is very personal as I poured my thoughts and feelings onto it when I was creating it. The journaling talks about being brave no matter what comes in our lives. Come what may, there is always a reason for what G-d has chosen for us and we can look at it with dread or we can choose to be happy with the journey we've been given. And so I feel in this life time I've been given a brave heart. I journaled on the side about my feelings and I also quoted the song "Brave" by Sarah Bareilles.

The textured background was created using Prima's chalkboard paint and one of the stone stencils. Then I used the "Free Spirit" Bloom stamp to create long locks of hair flowing out of the photo.
Finally I embellished with Prima flowers, leaves and wood icon feathers which were edged in copper Art Basics glitter.

I also used other Prima embellishments such as cork and wood icons.

My Happy Life- Blue Fern Studios

This is my last project this month for Blue Fern Studios.

I used the "Invitation" paper from the new Montage collection to design this layout. I loved the central theme of the background and therefore, I tried to create vertical movement on the page.

After designing the colourful background using Color Bloom sprays and a new Prima stencil, I framed my photo in the Blue Fern Studios Ornate chipboard frame. I embossed it in white Stampendous embossing powder. You can see the texture of the frame below.

I added Prima flowers and leaves under the frame to embellish the page. I tried to maintain the central/vertical theme in the layout.

Finally I used a few different chipboard words for the title. I used a word from the valentine word set and a couple of words from the chunky word set (the word life, was shortened from the word lifetime in the set). All the words were embossed to match the frame.

Papers: Blue Fern Studios Montage
Chipboard: Blue Fern Studios
Embossing powder: stampendous
Flowers and leaves: Prima
Stencil: prima
light moulding paste
Prima Color Bloom sprays: Cotton Candy, Gilded and Sunshine
Prima chalk edger: rusty keys

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.

Have a wonderful day!!
