Moments you can't put into words - Prima Marketing


Sweet Saturday everyone! This layout is extra special in the light of the recent events. I made it more than a month ago, but since then the world has taken a turn and hurricane season hit the main person in this page bad. I'm of course talking about Miranda Edney. During the week there was a special blog post dedicated to her at Prima blog (link) which also shared a funding campaign. So if you can spare a little and help her out, it would be amazing! She lost her home and business and is now trying to work to fix everything. You can find the campaign here (link).


One of this year’s highlights happened in January. I traveled to the USA for the first times, taught some workshops and attended Creativation. The whole trip was an amazing experience and I’m very grateful for it. What also was amazing, was to meet new people and see some I’ve known online actually in real life. One of those was the amazing Miranda – I’m so happy that we were roomies for a short period of time! 

I used Georgia Blues throughout the layout. I started with a beautiful watercolor styled flower paper as my background, added some mixed media touches to it and then continued using the collection as my layers and embellishments. I wanted a regal touch to the piece, so I added some gold details to it, to match the deep ink blue of the papers. You can see my process with the page in the video above and I also added some tips below.

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a fabulous weekend and sending lots of love to you all! 


Tip 1. If you don’t got it, make it. The Finnabair waxes are handy turning items to resemble metals. They are easy to apply and stick to various surfaces. So, if you don’t have big metal swirls, or a perfect golden button, grab a wax and top up your embellishments into shiny ones! 


Tip 2. Flat, full-figured and everything between. Stencils are really handy for layering! Just by changing what you are stenciling with, the medium you are using, you can totally change the look of the outcome. Try with different colors of inks, pastes and paints and see how the medium and color effects the pattern. And stencils can be used on embossing and stamping, too! 


Tip 3. Know your ink. If you like layers and work with intuition rather than a cunning plan, I suggest the permanent inks for you. That way if you decide to add watercolor on top, the ink won’t bleed. If you on the other hand want a watercolor look, then go for the Prima inks with the white top! 


Tip 4. Wuthering heights. I like dimension in my layouts and projects. You don’t have to go over the top at once, if you don’t feel like it, but try sometimes adding thin 3D foam dots or a sheet of thin cardboard underneath you photo cluster. See how it makes the center of attention to pop out even more?
