Welcome to the Prima/Tattered Angels Blog Hop!!!

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a fantastic week!  Spring is finally here in Australia....woo hoo!
For the month of September Tattered Angels and Prima are teaming up together:)  As you all know I absolutely adore Prima and I never create a layout without using TA mists, so working with them together is always so much fun:)  On the 15th September a winner will be announced for this gorgeous prize below.   Be sure to check out the Prima blog HERE for all the details to win this prize.


Also be sure to check out the blogs of the DT.  They have created some gorgeous projects using these 2 amazing products together.  You will definately be inspired:)


Now, I would love to share with you a canvas I made for a friend of a friend:) 

"Noah"

 


I started with my background, being for a boy, I thought stars would be perfect.  I have a couple of star shapes (which I just cut myself from chipboard)......I placed them randomly over my canvas and sprayed my little heart out with TA Glimmermist in colours - Turquoise Blue, Jazz Blue, Lime Twist and Cinder.  With the excess left on the star I just flick it back onto the canvas:)  I then added more art mediums, gesso and inks.



I then teared Prima papers from both Alla Prima and Pixie Glen ranges making a background layer for the picture.  I then used a Prima brick mask and applied Gesso and misted a little bit more:)

 


Next I started to place down my flowers, I must admit I did have them a different way and it just wasn't working for me so I took it all off and started again (hence the reason I never glue anything down straight away).  My fave Prima products would have to be the vines.....I love working with them and they are always a starting point for my flower clusters.  When I don't have any on hand to work with I do find it much more difficult for some reason.

 

Lastly I added the title, more Gesso to soften the flowers and loads of gorgeous crystals:)  To create the title I just covered chipboard letters with some more Prima pp and just sprayed the bottom of the letter with more Glimmermist.
