You can make them as simple, or as complex, as you wish. That's the simple beauty of the line! They're perfect for jewelry, home decor, mini-albums, clothing and purse altering, and SO MANY MORE ideas! Here are a FEW samples to show just how versatile our new Relics & Artifacts line is!
Sandra Evertson, Relics & Artifacts Creator, added paint and ink to age these flaming heart blanks! They're created out of the perfect blend of materials so any art medium will color them beautifully!

Shabby Chic perfection is here and it's so easy to attain! Keren took two our new relics (#941727 & #941567), brushed both with a bit of white sand texture paste, and added them to a trim-covered canvas to create this gorgeous beauty! Did we mention how the sets can be interchanged?
"As soon as I saw Sandra's relics and artifacts pieces I knew I wanted to create a mixed-media canvas with them. I envisioned myself experimenting with different Prima mixed-media products and this is the canvas I created." ~Keren
"I wanted to design a white on white project with minimal colour. I used the relics and combined them with Prima white trim, white flowers, white resin pieces and white mixed media products. Finally I added two shades of golden Color Blooms to enhance the shaded areas of the canvas." ~ Keren
"What fun I had creating with Sandra Evertson's gorgeous piece, "Ancient Soul." This little guy dresses up the whimsical pillow and will look perfect on a bench in my craft room!" ~Delaina
Changing courses we are going to jump right in to the pastel, springtime mode! Just try this gorgeous wreath for a stunning, show-stopping piece to display in your home! You're going to love the EASY two-step process Jennifer used to color her Flaming Heart!
