"Moment in Time" Layout
{Prima Product Pick} October 2014

Hi again!  It hasn't been the best week for me & I'm actually on antibiotics at the moment :(  Nonetheless before I began feeling awful I got the Prima Product Pick done - yay!!

Halloween is not something I celebrate & not a mainstream event in 
South Africa, but I actually loved the soft take on the traditional 
Halloween colours that Prima came up with this year & thought a
 photo of Granny with her purple hair would be perfect for it!

I began with a patterned paper from the Seashore collection, which I misted 
& splattered with a 2014 Prima 6inch stencil, using it both ways, both as 
mask & as a stamp, using Lime Wedge, Gilded & Iris Color Bloom Sprays.

This is an image of the stencil - I'm not sure what it's called, but I think 
it's a 2014 goodie & am looking forward to plenty of use out of it.

I used all sorts of Prima blooms from my extensive collection.  I am on a stash-
busting campaign at the moment & doing very well working my way through it!!

I added a touch of stamping, some gauze {which I just seem to be loving more
 & more at the moment!}, some Prima plastic pebbles & SIIC bling & some wooden
 Prima feathers that I watercolour painted with Color Bloom Spray in Iris.

I used more Seashore patterned papers for my paper layers behind my photo
 as well as a title sentiment from Prima's Time Traveller Collection.

Thanks so much for swingin' by here today!
Here's hoping for a peaceful, creative weekend comin'up!!

I still believe you have the coolest Mother-in-law. Gorgeous page. I am lusting after that stencil...but with my last order of Prima Epiphany shipped in August and still sitting somewhere in the mess we call the SA Post Office...I am just to darn scared to order anything.

I totally agree with Lynette - your Mother-in-law is soo cool(:o)
Fabulous photo, gorgeous page - I love the idea to do a non-halloween-page with these colors!
Have a nice weekend!

Superb work with the colours Helen. We don't do Halloween in Australia either. Although, I saw, to my horror, some big pumpkins and costumes in our local supermarket today. Love the purple hair and that photos is divine :D
