Prima DT call for 2015-2016

   I can't leave this DT call alone...I have to try!  I absolutely LOVE Prima...but then who doesn't? I had a hard time choosing which projects to enter, but finally decided on these yummy masterpieces! I have decided to feature a few altered items, as this is my area of creativity as well as a couple of "off the page" layouts. I love doing all things mixed media, with a shabby chic or vintage feel and just a touch of romanticism. I don't often create art unless there is some sort of story behind each piece...I can't just wing needs to have an inspiration behind it. For example, maybe the piece is showing an undying eternal love for my husband ("Floating Frame LO" below), or possibly an irrevocable bond between a man and woman ("XO Altered Clock" below) , or maybe an inspirational way to live your "time" of life "(Mixed Media Shadow Box Clock" below).
    Prima allows me to mix and match paper lines, which I really love to do, because I cannot just stay within one collection. I love to take a little of this and put it with a little of that! For example, on my 6x6 Altered Canvas pictured below I was able to combine paper from an older collection (Romantique) with flowers from a newer collection (Stationer's Desk) They go perfectly together...which works perfectly for me when I alter products or do layouts. I simply pull out all my different Prima products and create my pièce de résistance!

  Since it's not fun to share my work with only myself,  I teach my crafting process through my Youtube videos and this blog as well as sharing my completed works on Pinterest and FB. I love to share my zest for all things craft related! It's an obsession, I must admit! :)
Here are some pictures of my work over the past couple of years as well as some recent work. I've also chosen to add a few "start-to-finish" videos of some of my pieces. (If I am sharing a video of a certain piece, the link will be directly below the picture)

Thank you to Prima for taking a moment to consider my love of art for your DT! It certainly is my pleasure to share them with you!
