Are you ready for them? We have a very sweet sketch created for you by Marie-Nicolas Alliot this month!
We want to extend a personal invitation for you to join in on the BAP fun. All you have to do is create a Prima-based project and submit it right here on this post (scroll to the bottom for the link) by the last day of April! We will pick a lucky winner in early May to receive a Prima prize.
Need a little inspiration? Here are a few marvelous samples by our DT, Educators, and super talented Guest Designer! We were just amazed at the different results using the same sketch as the base. It just goes to show you how each person is so uniquely talented! And we always have a Guest Designer for you!
My name is Zaneta Glowa, in the virtual space I’m using a nickname Zanka. I live in southern Sweden, but I’m Polish by origin. I moved here 10 years ago, believing it was only for 3 years …and here I am now - all settled, having a family, and being even, as of last month, a Swedish citizen! But my heart and soul is Polish; that thing, I guess, will never change.
Before the year 2010 I knew literally nothing about scrapbooking. This was when this amazing world had opened its door to me and took me by the storm. At work I’m all fact and figures. I realized I needed a field to exercise my creativity and give vent to emotions. It’s also a way for me to slow down after a busy, fast-pace day and, let’s face it, make some mess. ;)
I love to create when it’s calm around me, with only some music on. I’m trying to explore different expressions and styles, although I’m most often staying within a romantic, feminine stream. I love to add a mixed-media touch to my works. My key discoveries during my journey so far have been: stamps, gesso, and Twinkling H2Os.
It means a lot to me, to be a Guest Designer for Prima this month! I will be happy if you would visit my blog.
I started by creating the stencil pattern in the bottom part of the paper. I used Floral stencil and gesso to create some round patterns, following the sketch. Then I added a bit of colour with watercolours to get more dimension. I finished off the background with some stamping and splatters of black ink. For the matting, under the photos, I used pieces of papers from the Love Letter kit and Sunrise Sunset. I also added some round embellishments, corresponding to the round patterns in the lower part of the sketch.
As you can see, instead of having 3 photos like the BAP sample, Louise has chosen to use some gorgeous Prima embellishments in 2 of the resin frames and 1 single black & white photo in the middle resin frame. This is just one of the fun ways you can interpret this fabulous BAP by Marie-Nicholas Alliot.
Brit stuck to the sketch and used three fabulous vacation photo, and a whole plethora of gorgeous circles on the bottom of the page for accents. Now how fun is this trendy layout?
What a delightful palette we have this month! It's perfect for springtime projects, Easter cards, and so many other gorgeous ideas. Again, enter any Prima-based project by April 30th for your chance to win a Prima prize!
I wanted to create a subtle, dreamy layout to match this cute photo of my daughter and the soft colour palette. I’ve used gesso to prime the paper, then added generous small splashes of the watercolours in pink, mint green, and yellow. I also used a stencil (with gesso) to get this delicate, flowery white pattern.
I used stitch stamp to outline the main part of my layout. I layered a paper doily and some Prima papers under the photo. As you probably know, even the packages from Prima products can make a great addition to your project. Well, I’m saving them all! :) Here I have used a yellow banner and a word ‘Dream’ cut out from the packaging of Prima flowers.
This gorgeous palette comes along just in time for spring! The fresh and happy colors of the "Princess" collection were just what I needed for these sweet photos of my own little princess. And, with such a variety of embellishments and flowers as depicted in the PPP, the options are endless- bring on the layers! ~Erin
I am totally smitten by those cute little Easter bunny resins. I had to create a little card with them in April's soft pastel palette and add a little sprinkle of glitter. Perfect! ~Felicity
