Love Me Some Prima!

I love Prima Marketing, Inc. products, so you can imagine my excitement when we found out Prima was sending us stuff for Scrap 'n Art Online Magazine! We were assigned to do a mixed media project and I knew that I wanted to make a canvas piece. This is a peek at the 6 x 6 inch canvas that I made with awesome Prima mediums and embellishments.

Focus is my one word for 2015 and it seemed perfect for this project. I also used Art Anthology Colorations sprays to create the beautiful layers of color.

I've been working on another canvas piece using a lot of found objects and I'll share it will you as soon as it's done. Until then...
Hugs and Happy Craftin'!!

Love Me Some May Arts Ribbon!!!

Hello there! Happy Friday to ya!! Today I want to share a peek at my tutorial in April's edition of Scrap 'n Art Online Magazine that I did for May Arts ribbon. I absolutely LOVE May Arts ribbon! It's not just for paper crafts or florals. You can use it to make awesome jewelry!!

I first happened upon May Arts ribbon several years ago at a dish barn in North Carolina while on vacation. They had a huge country buffet style cabinet FULL of May Arts ribbon and I wanted it all! I couldn't afford it all, so I picked a few yards of my favorite ones :) I used some in a few projects, but very sparingly, because I'm a hoarder that way, lol. Imagine my delight when I found out that May Arts is a preferred sponsor of Scrap 'n Art and as a designer I get to choose some of my favorite ribbon to work  play with! I love it so much that I had to offer it in Pickled Tink Crafts online store :) Go check out my selection! What is your favorite May Arts ribbon? If I don't have something you are looking for, let me know and I'll see if I can get it in stock!
I'll be back soon with more projects :) Hope you have a great weekend!
Until next time...
Hugs and Happy Craftin'!!
