On Top of the World- Prima Trends- Video Tutorial

Its my turn on the Prima Blog today and its all about TRENDS. What's in? what's hot right now?
Come and check out the Prima blog for some designer inspiration and check out my favourite trend below along with a video tutorial!!

One of my favorites mixed media techniques are drips & splatters. So today, I'm showcasing this fun trend with a step by step video tutorial. Watch as I show you 4 different of ways of creating drips and splatters on your projects. Enjoy!

This is a picture of me admiring the Grand Canyon in Arizona. When I first saw The Grand Canyon, I was in awe at its grandeur. It was so majestic I just couldn't believe my eyes. I tried to create a layout that will partially transport you there, so you can see its beauty. Truthfully, pictures don't do it justice and in this case you have to see it to believe it.

The title "I'm on top of the world" comes from a favourite song by Imagine Dragons. My son and I really like it and I just felt it fit the theme of this layout perfectly. When you are looking down into the canyon, you really feel as if you're on top of the world.

It was so amazing to meet many fabulous ladies!.
I had such an amazing time that I would go back to teach there in a heart beat. A Big thanks goes to Yamille Fernandez for hosting me at her store!!

Here are some pictures of all the wonderful ladies who took part in my classes.

The Book of Gratitude and Love- Prima's Ingvild Bolme Product Feature

Today on the Prima blog I'm featuring a project using some new Ingvild Bolme Shabby Chic Treasures and Junkyard Findings.

Shabby Chic is here to stay and who does it better than Prima? With two gorgeous lines by Ingvild Bolme (Shabby Chic Treasures and Junkyard Findings), we have the largest variety of metals and resins to add that GORGEOUS touch to any project your heart desires! 

Over the past year, I've been creating gratitude journals for people. I simply buy a cheap hard cover notebook from the dollar store and alter the covers. This journal is for my mother in law so she can write all the things she's thankful for, inside the book. She loves soft pastel colours and so I used the Coffee Break collection for the background. Then I used some of the new Ingvild Bolme resins to embellish it

Look at the details on the birds and the feathers, aren't they fantastic. And who doesn't love the new Prima Flowers, They are just divine.
