Prima BAP & Show Us Your Stuff Challenges

Welcome crafty friends!!!

I've had a busy couple of days sorting through my paper stash trying to put it into some kind of order,  ha ha ha  Order!!!  Not sure that is even possible, seems every time I have it in what I deem as a good working order, I still find myself spending way to much time looking for stuff, rather than creating.  Anyway whilst doing this I found a really old Prima paintables 12" sheet and decided it would be perfect for a Prima a challenge,  de-constructed it and used it as the main part of my layout.

I wasn't inspired to go with Halloween since its not something we celebrate here in Australia, however I did love the colours that were selected.  I also decided to combine it with a Sketch Challenge over at "Show Us Your Stuff".

Here is my take on both of these.

 For the colour work I used the Prima Blooms Tangerine and Colbalt and applied with a fine tip paint brush.

Textured paste along with Prima's mask was used to create the background work along with some beautiful Prima Blooms.  The hand made flowers were created using Magnolia's Doohickeys Peonies and I have dyed these using Cobalt and gold gelato's along with Shabby Blue embossing enamel. 

Products used:

Wow - chipboard frame
Gesso & textured paste
Glossy accents
Prima - Chevron stencil, flower blooms, pearls

  Tangerine and Cobalt & Lime Wedge

Prima Paintable
Stampendous - shabby blue embossing powder

Thanks for stopping by and thank you to those that always take the time to leave me a comment.  Have a great week!!!!
