Prima projects

Hi friends!  Today I have a couple Prima layouts to share.  If you follow the Prima blog, these might look familiar since I posted them there when I was featured last month.  I'm way behind on posting my projects here on my own blog.  In fact, I still have Summer CHA projects that I haven't shared yet.   Soon, soon.

This layout features papers from the lovely Pixie Glen collection. 

I love that there is a paper in each collection with journaling spots. I used one of the journaling spots and the mini alpha stickers to create a hidden journaling pull tab.

I decided to play around with something a little different on this layout: candle wax! I lit a sea-blue candle and let the hot wax drip onto my paper. I added some droplets of spray ink to compliment the wax color. If you try this at home, be careful with the flame and hot wax!

This next layout features a picture of me and brother when we were little. The Romantique line is perfect for these vintage looking layouts. Eeeks . . . I think I just called myself vintage. 

I cut out the image of the lady and flowers from one corner of the Romantique "Hilary" paper, then I flipped the remaining piece of paper over, cropped it, and adhered the lady with 3D pop dots to the reverse side (covering the missing spot).

I painted the edge of the Romantique paper with gold paint, then I mounted the paper on cardstock and crocheted a delicate border around the outer edge.
