Prima Design Team Call - a selection of Past Projects

Prima Design Team Call

Here are some samples of my work with Prima Products over the past few years. I also create a lot of Traditional Scrapbook pages, which i have not included in this post as i have not taken photos of them and they are in storage at the moment.

Hope you like it!


1) - Match box drawers set (idea from a channel on YouTube)
used some prima papers and flowers. (i keep little bits and pieces in it, so it's not purely decorative :) )


2) Clock
I have purchased a basic clock from a shop and altered it to become "pretty". I have used a Prima paper for background and have Gesso'd the outer edge which i have then used mists on to colour the clock and add some sparkle to it. I have decorated it with a variety of embellishments including prima flowers, butterfly, wooden buttons and resin birds. I have also added some pearls and shipboard shapes that i have embossed and coloured to match.


3) Fairy Wishing Well
One of my all time favourites! I have used a lot of prima flowers to make it look a bit like a fairy garden.


4) Time Canvas
another one of my favourites. This includes a lot of mixed media with inks, mists, texture paste and other "textures", such as cheese cloth. Includes a lot of prima flowers and wooden doors as well as a lot of chipboard embellishments that have been embossed and coloured to match.


5) Coasters
Used one of my all time favourite Prima collections - "Firefly" (i'm hoarding it a bit) - and now it is permanently on display in the house on the coasters that everyone looks at and uses and admires :)


6) Key Canvas
I have used an idea from a canvas online that used a lot of keys. So i have taken a selection of real keys, other metal embellishment keys and wooden keys and used them all on this canvas. I have used some Prima Resin embellishments as centre-piece. I have then gesso's over the whole thing and coloured it with Lumier paints. In real life it is gorgeous and very shiny!  


7) Large Drawer Set
I have used prima papers to decorate the whole drawer. I have used some inks, texture paste and paint to add a bit of mixed media to the project. My favourite part is the top of the drawers where i have created a bit of a "fairy" scene using some prima flowers, pearls and other bits and pieces and a miniature Fairy i have received as a present. I have added some glitter glue to the fairy to jazz her up a bit :)





8) Photo stand
A little project i have created for my partner to have something nice to look at on his work desk :) I have used some of my favourite papers from Sunrise Sunset collection and a mixture of flowers. I have also added some Wooden Doors and Resin Birds and a few other things including the awesome large light bulb with sentiments on them, which i love!
