Prima Off-the-Page Fall Home Decor Project
Upcycling some old Mobile Phone Boxes!

Hello everyone!  HAAAAAPY Hump Day!!  

I hope you are all having a wonderful week.  
Today I have an interesting project to share with you. 
 My spec was to create something "Fall Home Decor"Related featuring
 Iron Orchid Designs Prima collaborative products & this is what I came up with!  


Tomorrow I will be sharing a full step-by-step photo tutorial with you so you can see
 that putting this piece together is really not quite as intimidating as it looks! 
I have to say that having "Prima On Tap"is rather glorious indeed!!

This project features plenty of their Summer 2015 New Releases - as well as some
tried &  trusted ''old faves" & "holy grail'' products.  The flowers, butterflies, leaves
& berries all come from IOD & A Victorian Christmas Collections &I've used some of 
their new Paintables Papers as well as quite a few of their new metal embellishments.

Their Color Bloom Sprays & Art Mediums (the Soft Gloss Gel especially)
 are total holy grail products for me.  You can't NOT have them in your bag
 of tricks, & the microbeads & lace & weave trims are definitely old favourites.

Do pop in again soonif you like the look of this project & want
 to see how easy it is to make something similar yourself!

I love your box collage - it's just beautiful! You have used wonderful colors and awesome elements - gorgeous. The one thing I love about your art (besides the beautiful art itself) is that you always find a beautiful quote - and so many of them have made me take time to attach them to my own life. And, I love your blog!
