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.
