'Love Summer' Layout - Prima Product Pick {Zva Creative/Prima/Ingvild Bolme}





I got to play along with the Prima Product Pick last month - yay!!


I just couldn't resist these gorgeous Spring colours!


I used everything PRIMA except for all the bling which was courtesy of Zva Creative, the doilies from Bo Bunny & the mists from Tattered Angels, Maya Road & Studio Calico (Mr Hueys).


I started by selecting 6 colours of mist to match the palette, then sprayed in the same order they appear in the image, misting with water between colours then flicking water on with my fingers to create the pools of paler colour.


I cut up a large Prima Vine (Red Valentine Vine) & tucked it in underneath my photos to look like they were sprouting!


I mixed up various colours of bling, using pink, purple & 2 shades of green, all cut down from large flourishes.  The red bling dots are also Zva Creative bling & came as part of a large & generous parcel sent to me for my current 3 month Guest Designer stint there.


I added some pretty 'Fly Away' resins from Ingvild Bolme (for Prima) inked with her pretty 'Vintage Pink' ink.


I am so excited to say that I have FORTY TWO new Ingvild Bolme Prima inks on order! I found a great 'deal' on one of the daily deal sites so at last I can refresh my tired ink collection. 


Thanks to my sweet friend Cindy for the heads up there!  I posted on Facebook that I was looking online for them & she came to my rescue :)


Thanks for stopping by - Happy Weekend blog friends!!!
