Now, how about a peek at what I have created for you all today

Lots of gorgeous PRIMA products including some of the new Resistant Canvas, Mask, Resin - Bird Homes & Small Birds and blooms - including: #553487 Medley Star Gazer,  #552893 Ceylon White Wedding, Gillian Flowers #552985 Aqua & #552978 Lilac, Melody #552923 White.

I have used TATTERED ANGELS Glimmer Mists to alter the PRIMA Resistant Canvas and flowers and to enhance a masked element.

To create the background, I have used the PRIMA #551629 Resistant Canvas - Alla Prima

I first attached the Resistant canvas vines to cardstock and then misted with 'Timeless Lilac' Glimmer Mist.
'Patina' Glimmer Mist was then randomly misted over the top and with a paint brush and again with 'Timeless Lilac', more depth was added to the various leaves and flowers.  

The white resistant markings that show give a lovely subtle effect.

The gate element which sits behind my photo was first created with texture paste and the PRIMA #550042 Mask

Once the texture paste was dried, I then misted lightly with 'Turquoise Blue' Glimmer Mist. A touch of 'Timeless Lilac' Glimmer Mist was added around the edges with a paint brush.  The gate was then cut out and attached.   

To coordinate, Glimmer Mist 'Timeless Lilac' was also used to alter the PRIMA White SA-002/1 Mini Roses. 

A touch of shine and shimmer was added to the PRIMA Resin Bird with TATTERED ANGELS Glimmer Glaze 'Icicle'.  

I also added more depth to the little pixie's hat and top with 'Patina' Glimmer Mist - again painted with a paint brush.  Glimmer Glaze was then also applied when dried.

The Resistant Canvas Scalloped Borders were coloured with Glimmer Mist 'Timeless Lilac' and then attached around the outer edges of the layout.

Layout 'Wonder' by Trudi Harrison.  
Materials: #551629 Resistant Canvas Alla Prima, #550042 Mask, , Resin #890834 Bird Homes, Resin #890773 Small Birds, #552893 Ceylon Flowers White Wedding, #552985 Gillian Flowers Aqua, #552978 Lilac,  Melody #552923 White, #553487 Medley Star Gazer, #551100  Reflections Printery, #843182 Pixie Glen Pyske Cuts, #843014 Sweet Fairy Fresh Breeze, #538736 Cameo Roses, #542726 Love Letter Roses Jude,  White SA-002/1 Mini Roses.

I decided to use the cute paper flowers as my main embellishment for this layout, placing them on a wide paper ribbon. 

user posted image

Flip the ribbon and adhere U Cut It Foam on it for more dimension.

Thread the button and use extreme adhesive squares to secure the button to the layout.

As for the glitter flower brads, for my purpose I preferred to glue them to the layout instead of making holes for the brad. Hence I needed to cut out the brad-part of them. It was easily done. Then I used Raisen's to adhere these to the layout.

For my journaling strips I prefer to use the GlueArts Ribbon Adhesive. Works like a charm!

I See You Mini Album
GlueArts Designer: Lisa Day

This album is based on a class that Stacy Julian is teaching this September. She asked me to create my version of this with products I love and gave me permission to use it as a design team project so I'm happy to be able to share it with you all today!

Glue Arts PermaTac Adhesive and Applicator
Glue Arts Micro Extreme Adhesive Squares
Glue Arts Glue Gun and Sticks
Glue Arts Vellum Adhesive
Glue Arts U-Cut It Foam
Maya Roads Lunch Tin Mini Album
Pebbles Happy Go Lucky Collection
Lily Bee Designs ABC Stickers

Step 1 - Cut a picture and a piece of paper to 4.25 x 3.75 and adhere the picture to the front of the mini album with PermaTac and the paper to the back.

user posted image

Step 2 - Use a small circle punch (I used an old school paper punch) and punch out a lot of small random circles. Run some strips of Perma Tac around the outside edge of your mini album and spine, be sure to cover the bare part of the album and overlap the picture/paper. Randomly layer the circles over the adhesive.

Step 3 - Use the Micro Adhesive Squares to add adhesive to the back of the circles to fill in any gaps.

Step 4 - Cut the prongs off the back of the flower brad and hot glue it to the cover of your mini album.

Step 5 - Create your title page.

Step 8 - To decorate the tin - add the mini circles the same way you did to the mini album. Add a 3D sticker. Adhere the flag to the mini album using U-Cut it Foam. Add your title. Tie on some ribbon to the handle.

Step 9 - Print out and trim your picture to the size of the clear opening in the tin. Add some Vellum Adhesive to the top and bottom of your picture and adhere it to the inside of the tin.

The Vellum Adhesive gives a perfectly clear bond to your picture.
