April's Make It Prima challenge is here with a whole new palette, sweet Prima products, and a vast array of fabulous projects by our designers! Since April showers are a common weather trait we see in this month, the color palette was inspired by rainy weather to include soothing blues, fresh peach, mauve pink, and a springy green! The Prima products are Wild & Free Flowers - Wander, Druzy Stones for a bit of sparkle, and Color Bloom Spray to add a dose of color! The mood follows spring; with beautiful blossoms, raindrops, fluffy clouds, and soft, squishy marshmallows! The textures and patterns also follow a natural theme, so think about storm clouds, tulips, and light patterns in water!
"Keep calm and make art…My new mantra!!! I really enjoyed doing this altered box for the new Make it Prima; I love the colors and also these amazing flowers!!! I used a lot of Prima's different mixed media goodies to alter this little box. I put a layer of White crackle paste for the background, I am so addicted to it! I colored the metal embellishments with the Color Bloom Pearl White and Cotton Candy." ~ Nathalie Dalibard

"The cotton candy and cloud textures on the mood board for this month's Make It Prima challenge reminded me of fluffy merino roving. I have been wanting to make a roving weave, so this was the perfect time... I could totally see this weave hanging in a nursery or kids room-it also gives me unicorn vibes!!" ~ Aideen Fallon

"The moodboard this month is just amazing with all those lovely Prima products and textures. These were what inspired me the most and the gorgeous colors. I loved them! I wanted to make something soft and pretty the moment I saw the moodboard. I absolutely love the Wood Alphas on my layouts and canvases. They stand out perfectly!" ~ Jaya Raghuvanshi
