Prima Mini/Journal Goodness

  So it's CHA time again which means new goodies by our favorite manufacturers. I love checking out all of the new papers, embellishments, and art mediums coming onto the market. Just looking at the sneaks online gets me in to the creative mood. I have a few Mixed Media Mini albums to share with you and I hope they get you creating as well.

  Prima Marketing and Donna Downey have Mixed Media journals this release that are just waiting to be altered. They are prefect for any creative mind and any medium. Take a look and thank you for stopping by this sunny Monday!!!

This first mixed media album is one created with Donna Downey's new canvas coffee cup album. The front page has a fun circle cut out. You can place a photo behind the window or like I did, place a flower from the next page to peek through.

This is another of the new Mixed Media albums by Donna Downey. I used a mixture of sprays and paints to alter the canvas front, to add the polkadot pattern I used granular gel medium with Donna's new polkadot masks. I'm in love. Who doesn't love polkadots? I added some of Donna's new tissue poppy flowers and Prima wood buttons. This journal is filled with papers, tags, and tabs just waiting for your paints and inks...the possibilities are endless.

This is romance and love all covering a canvas cover. This new mini/art journal is a canvas covered wood with a leather like binding. Inside there are 50 pages of kraft paper waiting patiently for you to alter. I used Shimmerz Pearlz paints with Golden Fiber Paste to alter the front. I added some of my favorite Prima embellishments to give the cover a unique look.  I am truly loving the new wood embellishments. 

This cover is a new version of Prima's Mixed Media journals. I love the two new designs they have coming out and I could collect these to the point of hoarding. They are so easy to paint and embellish.  On the resin cherub I used silver foil and adhesive to give it an antiqued look. I then used one of Prima chalk inks to add more definition.
To add depth I used a new Prima mask with colored fiber paste. It added a pop of color that helps carry the flowers colors across the cover.
