Too Much...? Nope, never!

Welcome to the Altered Pages Blog and PRIMA 

We are in full swing of projects showcasing Prima Marketing products.  And, today I have for you a mixed media piece that will eventually be used as a card.  This started with actual product packaging that some of my Prima flowers came in.  This makes the perfect size for a large tag or card.  Plus, you know reuse, repurpose and recycle!  
I will try and keep it short and let the photos tell the story of the process.  I will provide a supply list at the end of the post.  IMPORTANT - make sure to comment on this post (and all posts this month) to be entered into a prize drawing for products from AlteredPages!!!!  
The process started with my product package as mentioned above, gesso and torn pieces of vintage text.  Next, a bit more gesso then a few stamped images. Make sure to let your gesso fully dry before adding any ink or paint to it.  I used my heat gun as I am impatient and don't want to wait for it to air dry.  A bit more stamping...a…

A flowered Prima ATC, and baby headbands, too!

An ATC, on chipboard blank, embellished with vintage lace and pretty Prima flowers.  This was followed with ballet pink paint, Prima Metallique Soft Satin, and touches of Prima Dragon's Eye Sparks paint.  The little girl is from the Altered Pages Chubby Cheeks collage page.

Prima flowers - various styles
Prima Relics and Artifacts
Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Paints - Dark Forest and Dragon's Eye
Assorted acrylic paints
Dew Drops

Welcome to a new week  with Prima and Jean.

A little Shakespeare is always a good thing. Where art thou Muse?
Supplies: Prima Ascot Flowers Vintage Book page Gold Leaf Duo Glue Double side tape Rhinestones Cardstock base with envelope

I choose an interesting page from a vintage book.  I cut it to show the text I wanted.  I used double sided tape to adhere to the black card base.  
I use the amazing Duo glue to achieve some leafing on my flower and the paper.  The flower was attached to the black base, then rhinestones were added for accent, echoing the reddish color of the page accent.  More leafing was added to pop the corners and echo the gold on the flower. The black base was added to a cream card which has a matching envelope.   
YOU can make the most superb, remarkable and fantastic projects with PRIMA!
