A Little Scraplifting Inspiration from Prima...

Inspiration... It's what we all need from time to time to get those creative juices flowing. Today on Prima's blog there is an incredibly beautiful LO from Keren Tamir that jump started my creative process. Yep, a few of the Prima design team scraplifted her page and I would like to share my take on it with you.


A little closer view of the detail... I used Prima's chalk edgers to color the pretty resin frame...

Here's a peak at the inspiration LO from Keren Tamir.
Hope you are inspired!!!

Pretty in Pastels...

Prima's Blog is showcasing pretty pastels today. 
Paired with some neutral colors they take 
center stage with their delicateness and sweet beauty.

I created a LO using Blush Pink, Grey and White. 
The hues and tones are soft yet eye catching.

Just a few stenciled hearts and circles add white on white texture...

 I brushed a light layer of pink chalk edger on the resin letters...

I framed only one of the four collage photos for extra 
dimension and interest ...
