Prima - Joyeux Noel Tag


Dropping in today to share a tag created for Prima showcasing the beautiful A Victorian Christmas collection and iridescent mica powder.

'Joyeux Noel'

As with most Iridescent Mica Powders the colours are always more vibrant when applied on a dark background, but for my tag I didn't want a super in your face colouring of gold, I wanted more of a subtle toning that is reflected when the light catches it. It really adds depth and eye-catching contrast.

As you can see the image is little bright but you can see the shimmery gold iridescent mica powder in the background shining through.

What I really love about the iridescent mica powder is when applied to a lighter patterned paper it allows the gorgeous pattern on the paper to still be seen through while giving it a reflective vibrance.

I added some gorgeous Victorian Christmas leaves to the layers for added texture.

Graphic 45 - Deathly Delight

Hi Peeps!!

So October is here and I am so looking forward to Halloween this year, we are getting ready to get our scare on that is for sure. This month Graphic 45 are getting their scare on as well featuring Halloween projects all the way through the month and today I am going to share my paper pumpkin with you.

'Deathly Delight'

I absolutely loved creating my pumpkin and the Graphic 45 Rare Oddities collection just let my creativity flow. I was in fussy cutting heaven with so many gorgeous images to cut out and use. 

The paisleys are stunning in colour. I created my own paper bow out of coordinating patterned paper.

I have a little snapguide tutorial for you to create your own basic paper pumpkin ready for you to decorate any way you choose.

I seriously love this collection and the papers have so many little details that call to be fussy cut and added to my project. My favourite image would have be the super cute skeleton.

Lots of amazing layers make the little pumpkin come to life.

Prima - Soaring Wings

Hi Peeps

Dropped by today to share a little project I created for Prima using the beautiful Relics And Artefacts line. We were asked to create affordable little luxuries using this stunning line. These pieces come as blanks ready for you to add your own personal touch to them.

'Soaring Wings'

The Relics and Artefacts are stunning in detail and are quite versatile. When I first saw the Flaming Hearts set I fell in love! So I decided to use my imagination and create something a little different and make an illuminated light bulb to really make them shine.

I created my own wings from Dusty Attic chipboard for this project but, if you a lucky enough to have any of the Rising Spirit sets, they have it will make it even easier to create this. You really are only limited by your imagination when creating with them.

I have inserted a Prima Lumie inside the bulb and turned it on for a glowing effect! Here's how gorgeous does it look all lit up with Prima's new Lumies?

I created a little tutorial showing how I created this and coloured the Relics and Artefacts.
