A New Julie Nutting Doll and a Step by Step to Share...

Meet Kiera! She's a beautiful new Julie Nutting stamp from Prima. I had a wonderful time mixing up the Julie Nutting Stamp with some of Prima's hot off the press Mixed Media products. 

 1. Spray Tea Stain Color Bloom spray on a Julie Nutting watercolor paper tag. Dry.

2. Pounce touches of Soft Matte Gel on the tag. Sprinkle Glass Glitter on top. The gel will adhere the glitter permanently.

 3. Add Cigar Box Secrets paper and a doily (cut from our new dies). Edge everything with a metallic chalk edger!

 4. Create your doll using our new Keira doll stamp. Edge all paper edges to give definition to the layers.

 5. Add Kiera to the tag and finish with flowers, Jute Trim, and more touches of gel and glass glitter for a sweet tag filled with magical sparkles

Summer CHA PaperArts Memories... with Prima

Summer CHA just happen to be in my backyard... well sort of.  Atlanta is only about 80 miles away so managed to drive back and forth most days.

This traffic reminds me why we made the decision to move to small town Alabama 21 years ago...

Adam, Ania, Sharon, and Me

Some of my handy work... not exactly mine, but I did velcro all of it to that wall for display...

We all stayed pretty busy...

 Ania is the demonstration queen...

Awwww.... Sharon!

and Ania!

I am pretending to assist Ania... Ha!

Mischief!!!  I left my camera unattended...lol!

 My fave from the show... Ania's John Travolta moves... lol! 
Love Her!!!

It was sad saying farewell to these wonderful people!
