Prima Scraplift Challenge

I was really excited to participate in Prima's "Scraplifting Each Other" challenge! 

My project is inspired by fellow Prima designer, Anna-Maria Wolniak. (I would have LOVED to have been assigned ANY of the DT gals. They are all super, super talented!) 

Besides the amazing texture Anna-Maria creates with art mediums, she always has a fun, colorful, yet feminine touch to each project. It was hard to narrow down the choices of which layout to lift! Each one of her designs is simply gorgeous and so inspiring.

I finally chose one she did a few months ago for our PPP challenge. I LOVE her colors, her placement of elements, and her whimsical artsy touches across the page (and what a sweet title!) I focused on these three areas and came up with my own interpretation using Prima's flocked rub-ons for a major source of texture.

This layout features one of the only shots I have of all seven of my kiddos (and grand daughter) with my in-laws. They JUST came down to see Britt graduate from college last week. I think we overwhelmed them a bit. Our house is NEVER dull. Or quiet. Imagine that. Haha!


(Go Green tip: use the negatives from the flocked rub-ons too! They will provide a fun little piece of texture for FREE! )

Here's a close-up of our resist canvas butterflies. I LOVE those resist pieces. So fun to color and customize. On this layout I used PanPastels to color them. Gorgeous colors and so EASY to use.

Anna-Maria always adds artsy little touches to her page for some contrast.  I seriously LOVE that! So I copied her. :)

Above: More flocked rub-ons and a masking technique using PanPastels again.

Hope you enjoyed the scraplift feature! Our whole team is participating so check out the Prima blog each Friday this month for more samples.
