Playing with Prima

This is the box of goodies I received from Andrea at Scrapbook Outlet this month. All of my goodies are from Prima, my favorite brand, so lucky me!

I hardly ever scrap photos of myself, for two reasons, first I do not have many photos of me as I'm usually the one taking the photos, and secondly...well, see for yourself...

yup face is a little bit scary!

I love Prima so much that I could not bring myself to throw out the packaging from inside the flower bag, so instead I topped the butterfly's with Glossy Accents (to make them appear 3D)
and used the packaging as a backdrop for my photo.
Here is my second page on the go. The lovely paper, quote and flowers are all from my kit. The fence is cut from the Heritage Cricut cartridge,painted and dabbed with KindyGlitz.
...and I have doubled sided tape around the edges.
The Foreground of my layout is another piece of lovely prima paper, which I have made into a mask by removing the centre. I then sprayed the removed centre with water and scrunched it up! Once it dried I tore pieces from it and attached them to the back of my 'mask' using doubled sided tape.
After this I cut out a 12 X12'" piece of card, removed the centre and attached this to the wrong side, of my foreground paper mask.
Then I placed the whole piece over the top of my background layer
Because my foreground paper has cardboard on the reverse side, it sits forward and creates dimension, I love dimension!

All of the papers used here are from Primas Annalee Collection, which can be found here
Thanks for looking :-)

Here is my finished latest painting
This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
