I also have some super exciting news to share! Eeeekkk I am over the moon thrilled to be a member of the amazing Design Team over at the Color Room! I cannot believe it because the talented ladies on the Color Room team always blow me away and so I am feeling very honoured to work alongside them. Be sure to checkout the Color Room website here and the Facebook page here to keep up to date. If you aren’t aware of the Color Room, it is a challenge site with a new and fabulous Color Palette and sketch each week to inspire. I have actually printed each palette out for as long as I can remember and kept them in a folder because they always inspire me to work with colours I would usually avoid.

Well that is it from me today, hopefully I will be back with some more inspiration over the weekend but until next time, happy scrapping!

Love You Nanna Canvas for Mothers Day

If you are here for my giveaway, click here for more info!

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all well and ready for National Scrapbook Day tomorrow! Yay I am so excited and hoping to get my scrap on and join in lots of online crops happening over the weekend especially the Live with Prima and the Scrapbook.com crops.

I am over on the A2Z Scraplets Blog sharing this canvas that I have made for my mother in law for Mothers Day.

This canvas is 12×12 and to create the background, I have used a variety of masks and some Helmar Textured Effects.

LoveYouNannaCanvasByAmyPrior

I then had fun with lots of different mists including Glimmer Mist, Lindys Stamp Gang Starburst Stain Sprays as well as Dylusions Ink Sprays. When these were dry, I have added some white gesso to shabby it up a little more. Bright and shabby is a serious favourite style of mine at the moment LOL.

The fabulous A2Z Scraplets Heart has been simply embossed with some WOW Embossing Powder. I have attached it over a beautiful cluster of Handmade Halo & Prima flowers along with some beautiful Handmade Halo Charms, Fabric Stickers and Flourish with a Bling goodies.

Behind the photo is a darling doily that I have cut using my Silhouette Cameo and some Prima Marketing Firefly Papers. I have also framed the photo with a fabulous A2Z Scraplets Nested Scallop Chipboard piece. Again I have embossed this piece using WOW Embossing Powder but I have done a very random spotty job so I would have lots of the raw chipboard shining through still. I then added some Viva Pink Glimmer Mist to that and allowed it to dry. I just adore all of the nested chipboard packs that A2Z Scraplets has to offer. They are so versatile and you get so many pieces for your money!

The title was created using the A2Z Scraplets Nanna Title Chipboard. To get this effect, I have added very small random amounts of Blue Tim Holtz Crackle Paint and allowed to dry completely. Then I have simply sprayed some White Mister Hueys Spray over the top to mute it down a little and add some more shabby.

Here are those fabulous A2Z Scraplets that I have used. Click on the images to view and purchased them on the website.

Mothers Day Canvas Gift

If you are here for my giveaway, click here for more info!

Howdy everybody! I hope you are all well and I hope the weather is lovely wherever you are. Today we have a beautiful sunny day here and it definately is not feeling like the end of Autumn!

Today I have a canvas to share with you all. I have created this canvas for my dear mum or mother in law for Mothers Day. I am making a second one too that I will share with you on Friday that will be a little different.

This canvas was also created using the fabulous Photo Inspiration Challenge over at Flourish with a Bling.  Here is the photo that I got my inspiration from…

And now for some closeups…

MothersDayCanvasForNannaByAmyPrior2

The beautiful flowers are a mixture of Prima, Kaisercraft, Green Tara & Handmade Halo. Among the Flower Cluster, I have some fabulous Prima Shabby Resin as well as some Green Tara Beaded Stems.

MothersDayCanvasForNannaByAmyPrior3

To create the textured background, I have first covered the entire canvas with texture paste using a Prima Stencil. I have then sprayed the background with various Mists after placing some doilies randomly. I then have removed the doilies, splattered some acrylic paint, and then masked again, this time using WOW Embossing Powders.

MothersDayCanvasForNannaByAmyPrior4

To finish off the backgroun, I have glooped some Embossing Ink Refill and allowed to dry overnight. When it is still tacky, I have then embossed using various WOW Embossing Powders.

MothersDayCanvasForNannaByAmyPrior5

I had lots of fun creating this canvas and was definately inspired by Stacey Young’s Prima Canvas Creation.

Mothers Day Cards

If you are here for my giveaway, click here for more info!

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well. Today I have 2 cards to share with you that I have made for my mother and mother in law for this upcoming Mothers Day on the 12th May. Now my lovely mother needs to stop reading now if she is reading this blog post hehe.

I have created both these cards using the Prima April Challenge Palette which you can view here. Here is the palette full of beautiful spring colours…

And here is the first card that I have created. For both cards, I have used the Prima Donna Downey Designed Firefly collection which is probably one of my all time fave collections ever. I just love the vibrant colours and artistic style of these papers.

I have simply layered various pieces of patterned paper along with a Prima Chipboard Accent here. All the Patterned Papers were distressed using my Prima Ingvild Blome Distress Tool.

HappyMothersDayCardByAmyPrior

I have finished off the card with some beautiful Prima flowers that I have shabbied up with some Gesso, followed by a gorgeous Prima Resin and some Prima Font. The trim I have used is the only non-Prima product and this trim is from Melissa Frances. I just adore her lines!

HappyMothersDayCardByAmyPrior2

Now for the next card, I have used my Silhouette Cameo Machine to cut a Doily from the Firefly papers as well as using a regular paper doily.

out for publication - Page 001

I have machine stitched the edges of the paper as well as around the doily centre.

LoveYouMumCardByAmyPrior2 LoveYouMumCardByAmyPrior3

The card was simply finished off with an array of amazing Prima flowers, Prima Shabby Resin and a Prima Heart on top! Again I have shabbied these flowers up with some Gesso. I would usually use white acrylic paint but somehow I have ran out! Eeeekkk

Well that is it from me today, thanks so much for reading along and don’t forget to leave me a comment 🙂 I would love to checkout your blogs too.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
