2Crafty Preparing For Valentines Day

 i am  here today featuring a few of the new releases for 2Crafty.  I am doing a little Valentine's Day preparation using some images from turn-of-the-century cards.   While the chipboard pieces have a Valentine theme on my page, they are perfect for projects all through the year.   Hearts are always fun to use. 


My pieces selected for this layout are 2Crafty :
"Leafy Twig Branches"
"Fancy Damask" 
"Beaded Heart Border"

Here is a photo of the  newly released, 2Crafty "Beaded Heart Border" in it's natural state.  I painted it bold red and then inked it lightly with vintage distress ink to give it a softer vintage appeal.   As a finishing touch, I rubbed some gold leaf wax rub on it for a gilded look.

Next I used the 2Crafty "Fancy Damask", also a new release.  I kept this more simple and painted it gold.

My last chipboard used was 2Crafty "Leafy Twig Branches".  These were painted with a few different colors in a sort of mottled fashion using yellow, brown and olive paints. 




Thanks so much for visiting.

Prima Bella Rouge Card




Prima Wood Foil Embellishments
(The original post can be found here at Prima)

Prima introduced some cool new products at Craft and Hobby Association 2015, some of which were wood foil embellishments.  

I saw the wood foil embellishments and fell in love.  The rich warm color of the wood and gold together is just perfect for a "stand- alone" piece on a card, or stuck in a cluster on a page.  They can be used in vintage pieces or contemporary.  These are one of my favorite releases for the Winter/Spring.

I paired them with the Bella Rouge collection.  

These goodies should be arriving in stores soon.

Prima Bella Rouge Collection - Altered Watering Can



Prima's Bella Rouge Collection
( Original Prima Post can be seen here)
The new releases are here and they are spectacular.  The Bella Rouge collection has captured all my favorite colors from bright oranges to greens and yellows that I adore.  It's cheery and straight from the garden of happiness.

I had a decorative metal watering can that needed a spot of color and pizzaz.    I used some of the flowers and embellishments from the collection along with some microbeads.



Watch for the new releases in your favorite store soon.

Prima Archivist Mixed Media Canvas


Prima's New 2015 Releases - Archivist
Prima's New Archivist Collection 
( see the Prima post here)

This is the Archivist collection created by Frank Garcia.  It's richly colored  with romantic Parisian and floral graphics.  

I created a canvas mixing the Archivist collection with some mixed media gels, glass beads, mica flakes and  a metal from Finnabair's new releases.  



The Archivist Collection is rich and warm, charming and earthy.  I took my inspiration from the colors I love so very much.

Thanks so very much for stopping.
