Prima Printery

Well I am back with another layout. This time I used the Prima Printery collection. Oh what a time I had with these papers. I thought I was going to pull my hair out!  I think it was the lack of color. So I distressed and spritzed and distressed. I thought the flowers were pretty bland too, so I added some white Prima flowers to the mix and distressed the petals. I wanted some leaves and used my Spellbinders Foliage dies. Can you tell, I am on a Spellbinders kick here lately. I do tend to run things into the ground, but I am in love with their dies! After I cut  the leaves I added some distress stickles. I used my Cricut Experssion and the George and Basic Shapes cart for the circles. I have run that cart in the ground too! I love using circles. This layout looks alot like some others I have done, but I do love the design. I created the look for the  hinge or whatever you call that thing at the top, by staining it black and then sanding. Next I applied Vintage Photo distress ink.  I added a few of the Prima Printery chipboard pieces, and used their stamp for Time Flies, which is the title of the layout.
I also used alcohol ink to create a light green color on the bling flourish, which is made by Want 2 Scrap. Anyway, that is all there is to it. Not sure how much I like this one, but I am glad to have it done! here are some close ups and the layout.

I hope I was able to inspire you! Thanks for dropping by.
