"Salt In The Air....Sand In My Hair Canvas" with Julie Nutting

I love how the Prima products made my canvas come to live. 
I used Christine Adolf #971441 Rub-Ons with the Bora Bora Foil to help create depth to my canvas.  
Apply Gold Crackle paste using palette knife and crackle stencil on a piece of the Tales of You & Me 8 x 8 pattern paper for the background. .
Stamp Chiara on white paper using black ink color with using Copic Markers.
 Stamp Chiara clothes on a pieces of the pattern paper from the French Riviera pattern paper using black ink. 
Fussy cut the piece out and glued them into on to Chiara.
Cut and place the rub-ons down where you want them on the canvas. 
(Pretty side up) 
Rub over foil and lift up.
 I am so impressed with how easy the rub-ons and foil were to use.
The rest of the canvas was created with the French Riviera 6 x 6 paper pad and French Riviera Ephemera with Prima flowers. 
Add a French Rivera sentiment to canvas.

Add Chiara to canvas with pop dots.
Add some pretty Prima Flowers and bow to the front.

Thanks for stopping by today and make sure to check out the amazing Prima/ Bora Bora Rub On Foil and Prima/Christine Adolph #971441 Rub Ons along with other wonder Prima products and Julie Nutting Paper Dolls!!!! Hugs Pam

ABC Primer Desk Organizer with Tutorial - Graphic 45


Can you believe it is time for the next school year to begin!!!
I can't believe how fast the summer has went by. 
With that being said I couldn't help but to create a fun canister set for a favorite teacher friend.
I know it will look fabulous on her desk and Graphic 45 ABC Primer is the perfect collection to create it with.  
How to Make the Canisters
Die cut 3 sets of canisters using Matboard. 
Leave one canister set alone, cut 1” off one set of canisters and 2” of the last set of canister sides.
Form canisters.
Apply washi tape to top and bottom of prepared canister.
Adhere pattern paper to prepared canisters. 
 Adhere die cut borders to canisters. 

 Decorate each of the canisters with chipboard embellishments.

Fill each of the canisters with tags and other supplies.
  Add doily die cuts to lids of canisters.
The metal rings I found while on vacation at a fabulous scrapbook store in Englewood FL called Treasured Memories Scrapbook and More Store!!!
Adhere metal circles and knobs to lids.

How to Make ABC Primer Stand: 
Cut chipboard base for stand 1” longer that the three canisters. 
Cut chipboard sides 1” x the length of the chipboard base.
Apply washi tape around the top edges of formed stand.
 Apply washi tape to the chipboard bottom and sides to form box.  

Place adhesive on paper pieces using the Xyron Creative Station. 
 Adhere pattern paper to the formed canister stand. 
 Add handles and legs to stand.
 Adhere sticker and chipboard to front of stand. 
Place the created canisters in to the canister stand!!!
There you go a fabulous, fun and useful canister set for your favorite teacher!!!
I hope you try making a few for your friends and family.
 My project is also on the Graphic 45 Blog HERE along with Marina fabulous vacation album!!!
Hugs Pam

Material List:

 Washi Tape Tip
1. Use washi tape to secure chipboard pieces together to form dimensional projects.
2. Use washi tape to cover exposed chipboard to give projects a finished look.
