You know how you see a project and you just HAVE to know how the designer created it? Well, we are committing each Thursday to a "Here's How It's Done" project with a complete video! Hopefully our fabulously talented design team will be able to inspire you as they show their "behind-the-scenes" tips and tricks for creating beautiful Prima projects! Today Anita is joining us!

"Hi There, Anita here!! How beautiful are those black florals in the Julie Nutting collection? They are just perfect for fussing cutting. With my layout I wanted a light pink stencil design in the background to add more texture. I mixed Heavy Body Gel and the Art Alchemy Sparks "Butterfly Spells" together and it’s great because it dries fast, and you can see that wonderful sparkle from the fabulous paint."

"After the stenciling was dry I matted my photo with some of that beautiful patterned paper, "a la rose", along with cut stripes from "sassiness galore" and "queen of hearts." With the "queen of hearts" bit I used my fringing scissors to add a fun fringe, placing it in the center of my layout with the photo."

"Then I started placing the fussy-cut flowers where I wanted to adhere them down. I also adhered a chipboard heart from the chipboard stickers to a paper clip and added it to the top of my photo. Then I used lovely flowers from the Cherry Blossom collection and added them to my layout. You can watch my process video of how I created my layout here."


Thank you, Anita, for this wonderful tutorial!!

I love learning from our design team! Each designer has a unique way of using Prima products, which makes creating so much more fun!
