Louise W doesn't normally like to make resolutions but this one was one she knows she will keep. After a crazily busy year and too much working, she's resolving to spend more time just playing with her boys and being with her family. She chose to hide her journaling on a shipping tag and tuck it in behind the flower cluster so the layout still had a lot of white space to balance it.
By using a mix of My Minds Eye and Prima products, she has created a festive layout without using the traditional Christmas colours of red and green, but ties in the common New Years tones of gold, black and white.
The soft colours and patterns in the Romantique range really appealed to Sue and she has teamed them with beautiful photos of her daughter Lily, blowing dandelions, late one afternoon. Although Prima are very well known for their gorgeous flower collections, Sue also loves their papers and their other embellishments, such as the vintage buttons featured on her page.
The tags pictured, have been created by tracing manila tags onto the Prima paper, cutting them out and inking the edges and then attaching the re-inforcement circle stickers from the original tags. A technique used to create beautiful but cost-effective embellishments.
The vintage buttons have created a lovely feature on the page, and of course who can resist a couple of those gorgeous flowers!
This year Chris wanted to create a simple little gift for her daughters teachers for 'World Teachers Day'. She created each of the teachers these cute little cards with the Prima Paisley Road 6x6 paper pad, chipboard journaling note accents and essentials flowers. To keep the message simple Chris stamped the Hero Arts Tiny Bird Message stamp (an old favourite) onto the co-ordinating Paisley road paper from the 6x6 pad and added them to the card.
Chris then placed the cards and a small chocolate bar into the plastic lolly bag and created toppers from the Paisley Road paper to seal the bags. Her kids love taking these to school for their teachers.
Before packing up her supplies after making the teachers cards, Chris whipped up a couple of little gift tags using the Paisley road collection and little bit of machine stitching. These gift tags will be ready to go on the next birthday present!
Trudi Harrison created this stunning layout featuring papers from the gorgeous Prima Alla Prima Collection with a touch of Printery. Some subtle masking has been included on the background patterned paper. It can be seen peeking out from behind the photo. The Prima 8" x 8" Circular Flourish Mask #545574 and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists Coffee Shop and Patina were used to create this effect.
Essentials flowers have been layered with hand cut paper elements and a variety of other pretty Prima blooms including Gillian and Angelica, Avon, Coventry, Lilliput, Love Letter and Sherwood Roses.
Trudi Harrison adored the soft and delicate Prima Romantique paper that has been used for the base of this gorgeous layout. It was combined with the softer lilac and paler olive colours of Prima Londonerry. Trudi also added doilies cut from Prima acrylic packaging. A bouquet of Prima blooms both new and older add a touch of girly prettiness. You will also spy a Bretton Vine, Splendor Leaves, Meredith Butterfly and some Resin tucked amongst the layers.
To create a decorative accent to the resin bird house, an architecture resin cornice was attached across the top. A little Say It In Crystal glittery heart was the perfect size for filling the little heart crevice. A larger butterfly element was die cut from patterned paper. The antenna's were created from a pastel twister as well as a little flight path.
Lots of gorgeous Prima products are featured on the third and final layout we fell in love with from Trudi Harrison, including some of the new Resistant Canvas, Masks, Resin Bird Homes and Small Birds and blooms. To create the background, Trudi first attached the Resistant canvas vines to cardstock and misted with 'Timeless Lilac' Glimmer Mist. The white resistant markings that show give a lovely subtle effect. 'Patina' Glimmer Mist was then randomly misted over the top and with a paint brush and again with 'Timeless Lilac'. More depth was added to the various leaves and flowers.
The gate element which sits behind the photo was first created with texture paste and the Prima #550042 Mask. Once the texture pasted dried, Trudi then misted lightly with 'Turquoise Blue' Glimmer Mist. A touch of 'Timeless Lilac' Glimmer Mist was added around the edges with a paint brush. The gate was then cut out and attached. The Resistant Canvas Scalloped Borders were coloured with Glimmer Mist 'Timeless Lilac' and then attached around the outer edges of the layout.
Please join us in thanking Trina McClune from the Prima Design Team for sharing the next 2 layouts with us! Trina says that she loves how versatile Prima products are and that she can combine older Prima embellishments with their newer papers. Here Trina has used the Printery collection paper with many of their wonderful embellishments as well as Prima's clear recital stamp. You can find step by step instructions on creating this layout on Trina’s blog here.
And here's a final word from Trina about this last gorgeous layout. "I just adored the prettiness of the Pixie Glen line. The colours are muted and soft. So beautiful. It's also perfect for someone like me who likes to cut and layer."
Janine had never decorated a 7 Gypsies Printers Tray before and found it a wonderful experience. In many ways it is quick and easy as you know that you have set sizes within each of the compartments to decorate, so it is somewhat similar to creating a lot of little cards and then deciding on the correct placement of them within the tray for balance and design. Janine used the brand new Authentique ‘Uncommon’ range of papers for her tray and loved them.
Each week we’re taking a new look at an old staple technique or product. This week we asked Janine and Louise to come up with some wonderful ways of using that stash of flowers we all have.
It should come as no surprise to anyone that Janine loves using flowers, they seem to find their way onto all her layouts, so to use them in a different way was the real challenge!! She decided to create her own decorative paper accents using flowers rather than paper for this bright, fun filled layout.
Firstly, Janine coated cardstock with gel medium and then randomly stuck down her Prima Essentials flowers in colour groups. While this was still slightly damp she then run it through her die cutting machine, using a circle die that would fit inside the decorative edged circles cut from patterned paper.
In the process of the flower paper rolling through the die cutting machine it pressed the flowers into the gel medium to ensure they are firmly stuck on the cardstock.
It's no secret that Louise W adores all things Prima and loves to cluster her flowers in groups to add a focal point to her layouts. For this layout she's used some of the white Prima Craftable flowers and painted them Glimmer Mist before adding a Prima Reflections flocked rubon as a flower centre. The flowers were spritzed with water first so that they had soft edges and a watercolour effect when painted.
Kathie’s used the new Donna Downey Dress Form stamp to create a pretty wall hanging . She created a background using a dress pattern, as well as patterned paper and journaling notecards from Prima’s Botanical collection. Paints, mists and stamps add layers and interest to the background.
To create the dress form, Kathie stamped the image onto five pieces of pattern paper. She cut out one of the images and left it whole. Then she cut individual sections from the other four dress images and overlayed them on top of each other, adhering them to the first image. A piece of Prima lace peeks out from the hemline.
Janine loves the gorgeous colours in the Sparkling Spring line by Prima. she loves the fresh green and the delicate hues of the other colours then the splashes of deep reddish pink. In this LO Janine wanted to capture the priceless moment of her daughter reading to her favourite toy "Charlie Bear". She went through each page making up a story as she went and it was just such a special moment.
Janine has layered flowers and cinderella Vines for a gorgeous floral cluster full of interesting textures. She has Key Lime Glimmer Mist to customise her green flowers and Starfish Glimmer Mist on her Prima lace to add accentuate these aspects. Janine also created a custom sub-title for her page by layering a notecard, chipboard and stamped image on either side of the chipboard ensuring this became part of the focus. Finally she created a cute layered banner for her title to sit on.
A couple of projects from Nic Howard, who is just masterful with Prima products. In the top grid-styled layout she has used Madeline patterned papers and managed to bring the whole page together with the title and the stunning bouquet of flowers. This starts with a base of French Bluebird and Birdsong Vines and she has embellished with co-ordinating flowers and trinkets from there. Above in Grace Nic has used the autumnal tones of the Reflections patterned papers and embellishments.
Thank you so much to the super talented Ingvild Bolme for sharing this stunning page with us. Her use of delicate colours and intricate details is synonymous with her fabulous style. From the use of delicate SIIC & P swirls to the stunning accents of Prima Corinne Flowers ensures this page is drop dead gorgeous. If you look closely you will notice Ingvild has also used the New Prima Metals as well for added texture along with some Tim Holtz gears for a hint of shabby chic grunge.
And we just had to share another gorgeous page by Ingvild Bolme, this time featuring the Sparkling Spring collection. Ingvild is a master at the little details. We love the way she’s twisted a Summer Carnation vine to frame her photo, and then added a tulle bow beneath it all. And we were captivated by the hand stitching around the yellow frame, not to mention the fussy cutting of all the little red branches and leaves.
Ingvild tells us that this layout captures a precious memory. Last summer she took her daughter to an old camping spot where she herself spent her childhood summer vacations. She says that, sitting there watching her daughter play on the beach was like looking through a “memory-window” and seeing herself as a child bathing there almost thirty years ago.
Karen Wilson, Northern Arizona, created the next layout we are sharing with you today. Based on a “Stuck?” sketch, Karen designed her layout using Prima’s Botanical papers. The soft blues are beautiful against Karen’s Olive Vine misted backdrop.
Karen says that she chose the title “Growing Up” because she’s learned that as a mother she has no time to blink, because in one blink of an eye a special moment has past; that's how fast childhood goes. She says that, with this layout, she can reminisce and look back at how darling her kids were at this young age.
This page comes from the gorgeous and talented Malin Dahlstrom. Malin is known for her wonderfully feminine pages and her love affair with pink! She has combined a larger Prima bloom with the new Corrine flowers superbly to accent this beautiful photo of her daughter. Thank you for sharing this stunning page with us Malin.
This fabulous layout is by the talented Jamie Dougherty, who has captured these great shots of her son superbly on this boy themed LO. By using masculine colours, Jamie has created a boyish layout with flowers on it. If you peek at the details you can see she has included the new Prima metals on this page as well. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful page with us Jamie
Here we share Prima’s patterned paper releases for this season. There’s something for everyone and though we haven’t shown all of them here there is, of course, a plethora of co-ordinating flowers butterflies and other treasures to work with every collection. We’ll cover these in a seperate post – as ever the Prima release is huge!
Janine loves the open design of the new release SIIC images! What she enjoys doing the most with them is sticking them onto similar coloured paper and cutting around the outline to enhance the visual effect of the crystals as she has done on this page. The crystals become a bold statement to the page and add a gorgeous element of sparkle.
The Donna Downey Prima products are absolutely gorgeous in real life, according to Sue. Sue especially loved the canvas tags and wanted to make a feature out of them for her layout. They made the perfect backdrop for a lovely photo taken of her daughter Lily, a few years ago, fast asleep in her fairy dress with her teddy bear. It was a common sight in Sue’s home back then but she is very glad she took the time to photograph it.
Sue chose one of the beautiful papers from the Prima Annalee range to complement the tags and canvas flowers. The canvas tags add a wonderful texture to the page and Sue enhanced them even further by adding some gorgeous stitching.
The word ‘loved’ in Sue’s title is an iron on transfer from the Donna Downey range. Traditionally they are designed for using on fabric or canvas but did you know they can also be applied to cardstock? Simply follow the same instructions included in your packet and it works a dream. Sue then carefully cut around the letters to create a title for her page.
Sue loved the simplicity of the design of her pink page, so she decided to replicate it for a boy page. Sue chose a lovely photo of her nephew Iziah and this time, instead of keeping a monochromatic colour scheme, she added in some green too. The green compliments the beautiful blue tags perfectly. There is a black iron on transfer in the same pack as the pink one so it is great value to be able to complete two pages.
We thank Annabelle O’Malley for the above two projects. We love the softness she has brought out in the prima papers she has used, and the gorgeous fabric details in her projects.
This is a gorgeous album created by Daniela Dobson to showcase her photos of Paris. Daniela used the new Donna Downey Canvas tags for the pages of her album. She cut the large tag in half to make the front and back of the album. The tag sets come with three canvas tags and three paper tags. Daniela added the Prima packaging and a canvas journaling tag for her other pages and embellished using the new Prima Masks and the gorgeous pearls and flowers that Prima is known for.
Thank you Daniella for allowing us to share your beautiful album.
Janine adores the colours of the boy side of the So Cute range by Prima and finds so many cute elements that can be cut out from them to embellish her pages. She also loves the way you can add Prima flowers in matching colours to add more dimension and texture to the layout without giving it a girly appearance.
Carole loves anything fun and cute, so creating with Prima "Road Trip" was something Carole really enjoyed. All the gorgeous embellishments such as the chipboard and Journaling tags really added a little extra, and the papers are so easy to put together.
Louise could not believe how wonderfully coordinated the range of Fairy Flora patterned cardstock is, Considering the colour range from soft through to grunge like. The range will lend itself beautifully to the scrapping of a variety of topics and themes, with the added benefit of having a beautiful floral pattern that can be cut out and used for a wonderful embellishment, as you can see Louise has done, in both of these layouts.
Thankyou to the talented Leena Loh for sharing this amazing page with us. She has used the new Prima masks in various ways to create a stunning, artistic background with Glimmer Mists and then accented the page beautifully with Prima’s Donna Downey range of canvas tags, sheets and new Iron ons.
This simple and beautiful layout was created by the talented Michelle Winston. Michelle has used the gorgeous range of Fairy Flora papers just perfectly to showcase to beautiful photo. thank you so very much Michelle for sharing your beautiful layout with us.
Love this layout by Nicole Pomeroy, Road Trip works so well with her gorgeous photo of her son, totally gorgeous Nicole.
This beautiful layout was created by the talented Tatum Woodroffe. Just love how Tatum has incorporated the use of prima packaging in with the flowers and gorgeous Fairy Flora range. Thank you Tatum for sharing this beautiful layout with us.
Leena has shared 2 fabulous LO's with us and this one showcases a way to use the new Prima Scrapbook Jewellery. Who said it needs to be worn when it can accent a page so beautifully. Leena has also cut her Clementine ribbon into individual flowers and interspersed the colours and the final touch of the orange flower adds that pop to the page.
These amazingly decorated Ballerina costumes were decorated by the very talented Mandy Dodd, who not only is a wonderfully creative scrapbooker and papercrafter but also a Ballet teacher. As you can see from these pictures Mandy has used the Prima flowers, pearl bling and star embellishments to decorate her DD's costumes. Don't they look absolutely wonderful!!! Thank you Mandy for allowing us to share your beautiful Prima Creativity.
There is something special about Christmas photos which deserve to be showcased in a gorgeous Christmas layout. Often the photos are so colourful that the scrapbook page design can be kept fairly simple. Sue chose to keep her photos as the main feature on her page by using small patterns in the papers and embellishing with beautiful Prima Christmas products. The glistening vine was used as the base for the stunning holly leaves.
Sue also used a journaling chipboard from the Annalee range to which she added rub-ons from the Lily Bee Designs Christmas Town collection. A little glitter is always welcomed on a Christmas page so Sue covered Heidi Swap chipboard stars with platinum stickles to add that extra sparkle to the page. Gold stitching added the last little detail needed.
Don't forget to take lots of photos during the month of December to capture all the special things about Christmas. This can sometimes alleviate the pressure of photo taking on Christmas Day.
Today we’re excited to share a project Janine has created for Prima – and if you want to join in with Janine as she shows us how to recreate these at home, you can catch her live online class on Wednesday 15th December at 11am at the Live with Prima site – here.
Janine has used non-traditional Christmas colours such as pink, turquoise, green and silver to create one of kind table decorations that will have your guests in awe. You will be customizing Prima flowers with glimmer mist and an iridescent medium as well. You will also make a cute little lolly container for each place setting and a decorative card. This beautiful card will accentuate the table and act as their Christmas card as well.
Janine updated her Christmas decorations to turquoise and pink last year and wanted to add a couple of hand made baubles to the tree this year. She used lots of Prima flowers coloured with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Patina and Pink Taffy) and then hot glued them all over the polystyrene balls. Janine punched a lot of snowflakes out of white cardstock and then used the Tattered Angels Glaze to colour them silver.
The glaze was perfect for this as it comes with it's own little brush which was perfect for the fine detail painting and adds a gorgeous fine glitter appearance to the snowflakes. She then proceeded to adhere rhinestones (the extras you get on the ends of Prima stamps) onto the flowers and also Prima flower Centres (SIIS, Rajas and Sultans) into the snowflakes to glitz it all up more.
Janine also used the glaze to re-colour her white velvet Prima leaves a glittery silver for a gorgeous effect. She used the glam on the accent flowers at the top of the baubles for extra sparkle and shine as you can never have too much sparkle at Christmas time. As a final touch to the Turquoise bauble, Janine dipped some Prima lace in the Tide Pool Glam and used her heat gun to dry it off.
This causes the lace to stiffen and you can then mould it into a shape and ensure it can sit "upright" on your project as well as having a lovely glittery appearance.
We start with a heap of Prima goodness inside a 7Gypsies Artist Trading Card Tray, just to inspire you with the talent that is Nic Howard, and also to bring you the fabulous news that you too, can create a tray just like this! Nic has created this project for Prima and will be presenting how to put it all together on www.livewithprima.com on Tues 23rd Nov, 4.00pm PST (this is Wed Nov 24th, 1.00pm NZT, or 11.00am Eastern Daylight Savings Time in Australia).
If you are looking gift idea for this christmas season or want to put it up in your own home – or if you just enjoy making a selection of gorgeous little embellished cards, you won’t want to miss this class. See the link above for details and a materials list – we can’t wait to see Nic in action!
Caz decided to have a go at decorating one of the cute Donna Downey camera bags from Prima. She placed a hard object inside the camera bag for stability and then ironed on a Prima flower iron-on and some leaf stems. Once these were set and cool she added the cutest BasicGrey bling owl which surprisingly adhered very firmly to the canvas.
As you can see from the second photo,even though Caz has decorated the small camera bag it still has plenty of room for not only a compact camera but also your mobile phone.
Louise loves all things Prima, and the new carnation vines were the perfect touch to this girly layout. Using strips of Prima paper and a punch, she created a ruffled edge and attached it to a large circle, finishing with some hand sewing for a soft, vintagey feel.
The cutesy style of Prima’s Jack and Jill range of patterned papers might not be Nic Howard’s style at first glance and yet, with consummate skill, she has still managed to create a layout that shows off the gorgeous papers and is still very much a “Nic Howard” original! Nic has kept the gorgeous softness of the papers and still given her layout her trademark contrast with the photo and the deeper colours of the Prima flowers she has chosen.
A lovely way to show off a larger section of journalling is to tear a section from your paper and curl the edges, slip the journaling in behind.
Prima’s Fairy Flora range is just exquisite with watercolour rainbows of colour in different colour palettes saturating each page. Here Nic has combined several shades of them to create this beautiful layout. Small dots of dimensional paint are a subtle addition to any of the Prima pieces.
In this LO, Janine has used the Paisley Road line from Prima. The vibrant colours of this range really jump out at you, so Janine chose to use a neutral kraft background to help “tone it down”. She then used the packaging from her Sweet Taffy flowers to add another layer of interest! By hand cutting the vibrant flowers from the line Janine was able to selectively place them around her photos and add texture by using Prima flowers to set the whole page off. A tip when using the Crochet flowers from the Sweet Taffy range, you can cut the largest one up into 3 flowers and fill the centres with a chipboard piece as Janine has done on this LO, effectively turning one crochet flower into 3.
Prima’s flowers come in the most beautiful and re-usable packaging and Janine has used the packaging on this card and mixed it with beautiful Annalee papers for a soft and romantic feel to it. She has set it off with lace and Prima clementine flowers and ribbon. The clementine flower ribbon can be cut into individual flowers as Janine has used it here.
Janine loves to use turquoise and purple together and she had an offcut of a Donna Downey Canvas page she had used on another LO but didn’t wish to waste any of it so created this card. She then teamed it up with gorgeous purple Prima flowers clustered together and used more of the canvas to create leaves to tone in, then balanced this cluster with a Prima butterfly.
A big thanks to Staci from Michigan for sharing this cute layout with us. Staci has used the Donna Downey stitched fabric words by Prima as her title. The cute polka dot letters add a sense of fun and co-ordinate beautifully with the spotted background paper.
This layout was made by Cari from New York for the Prima booth at CHA. Cari dry brushed gold paint around the edges of the canvas sheet. She then painted the packaging from the Prima's Iron Ons and placed it on the background. Cari added all the Prima goodies and then finished the whole layout with Wheatfields Glimmer Mist. Thanks so much for allowing us to share with our readers Cari.
This fun layout from Prima Flowergirl Alyssa McGrew is the perfect example of how Prima can be used to suit boys pages too. By creating a small scene with some clever cutting and adding a couple of subtle but effect paint splotches, Alyssa has added the boyish details that really lift the page from ordinary to extraordinary.
This second layout, also from Alyssa, highlights the classic Prima look - girly, soft and impossibly pretty.
Stacey Young takes collage layouts to a whole new level, and the end result is both visually appealing and highly detailed. She's used a selection of gorgeous Prima flowers and vines and has mixed it with an eclectic selection of stickers and chipboard to complete her amazing design.
We'd like to say thanks to Jamie from Southern California for allowing us to show you the Prima canvas camera bag that she decorated. Jamie sprayed some accents onto the bag using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist before adding hand crocheted flowers and some hand stitching to finish it off,
Prima never disappoints and this season is no exception. From Christmas to kids, and some beautiful new patterned paper lines, this release is pure eye candy. We bring you just a fraction of the whole release here!
Often we associate Prima products with feminine layouts; however Kathie’s layout shows the versatility of Prima’s recent releases. She’s used a mix of Prima’s Pastiche and Shabby Chic papers to create a charming layout of her son playing in autumn leaves.
Kathie used the Donna Downey Tree foam stamp and decorated it with Pecan Calcutta Leaves to add an autumnal touch. One leaf falls gently to the Prima brown lace and hessian that add texture at the base of the layout. Stamping around the edge of the layout with Prima’s Chicken Wire stamp, a touch of paint and some distressed inking add a rustic hewn feel.
Suz has created a simple but pretty layout using one of the beautiful Prima Songbird Vines and ready made Pink Paislee ribbon pleats to just underline and underscore her photograph – the combination almost looks like a window box. She has also included Prima Chipboard Journalling Stickers which are not only beautifully printed but they’re glittered as well – the perfect finish for this girly page.
For this particular layout Louise has used the pattern of the Prima patterned cardstock to her creative advantage; using it to highlight both the pattern of the Hambly overlay, and her journaling.
For this particular layout Louise was looking to journal her thoughts a little differently than usual. So she has cut strips of Prima patterned cardstock, adhered them around the sides of the 12 x 12 bamboo natural texture paper, and then journalled along and on these strips.
Nicole isn't really a "bag" person, unless of course it's made from fabric!! She LOVES the Donna Downey canvas bags from Prima because they are literally a blank canvas waiting to be personalised to suit the owner.
In this instance, Nic cut and tore up squares of her favourite canvas fabric before going mad with as many masks, Glimmer Screens and diecuts she could get her hands on plus a few favourite colours of Glimmer Mist.
Once she was satisfied with the placement of her "patches" she sewed them onto the bag flap using a sewing machine, then added one of her favourite quotes by Dorothy Parker onto canvas patches using black Stazon and Heidi Swapp alphabet. The result is delcious layering of colour and a texture dying to be touched.
Nic also wanted to add that if you make one of these for yourself, use Vliesofix or Heat N Bond on the flap before you try and sew all the patches down!
Elise McKay, from Ningi Qld, has used a mixture of Prima’s Flights of Fancy, and Raspberry Tea collections in this next page. If you look closely, you’ll notice that she’s cut around the rose pattern at the base of her patterned paper to form a very effective photo corner. She’s then further embellished it with flowers, hand cut butterflies and chipboard journaling stickers. The addition of hand stitching really draws attention to the butterfly in the photograph. Beautiful page Elise!
This layout, by Yuka Hino of Japan, is pure girly confectionary. Delightful feminine touches make this one of the prettiest layouts Kathie had seen in a long while. Huka has used the delicate spotted papers from the Flights of Fancy collection to form the basis of her layout, then added some crimped coordinating paper and a range of floral embellishments. We're delighted that we could share this layout with you today.
Robin Schelin, Las Vegas, created this next layout using a combination of Prima’s Pastiche and Strawberry Kisses collection. The touch of lace, distressing and tiny letter stickers lend a real vintage feel to the layout, and we love the large flower embellishment that replicates the rose Robin’s grand daughter is smelling in the photo.
In the middle of Adelaide there's a huge park that neighbours the botanical gardens. The other afternoon, while walking through the park Kathie and her son saw about a dozen orange butterflies. They were flitting around, playing in the sunlight. Jamie was absolutely enchanted. This series of photos captures him racing around, playing with the butterflies. It was really as if they were playing too!
The Twiddleybitz Whimsy Bird Friends and Elements are so suited to a page about an enchanted garden. Kathie's painted them and then inked around the edges with some Walnut distress ink to give a bit of a vintage feel. She's set them in a garden with a host of other manufacturers - including 7gypsies, Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon, Hambly Screenprints and Sassafras Lass. The end result is a colourful and vibrant page.
Carol Thompson has outdone herself with this amazing project – there’s so many different Twiddleybitz products in here, we don’t really know where to start. First off is the gorgeous easel the whole scene is mounted on. Then there’s the gorgeous little church, which is a new release, along with the fabulous long picket fence, which is a classic and perennial favourite.
The new Nero range is represented here too – the Iron Mantle and other wrought iron bits add further interest and contrast.
Anything to do with birds is always beautiful, and this standing Bird Cage by Twiddleybitz is no exception. Carole Janson painted the Bird Cage in blue to really highlight the shape, and then added detail using Prima Florals and Shabby Chic papers, with a cute Twiddleybitz Picket Fence to finish off.
Louise Williams has used the fabulously intricate Twiddleybitz Opening Gates to frame her photo, with great effect. And what a sweet photo! The weathered scrolls on the gate work perfectly with the splash of romantic colour from the Prima flowers and vines and provide stunning contrast to the stark grey background. She has further added to the magical atmosphere with the empowering quote.
We thank Karola Witczak for allowing us to share this beautiful delicate layout. She has also used the Twiddleybitz Opening Gates to highlight her photo, and teamed it with more Prima goodness, in a completely different way.
Finally, who wouldn't love to have this stunning shadowbox on a mantel somewhere? Again Karola Witczak has created this project using a Twiddleybitz shadow box and flourish, decorated with Webster's Pages Seaside Retreat collection. We think you'll agree that it's simply a work of art!
