Prima Marketing Inc. Design Team Call 2016-2017 Application

I have decided to try again to get on the design team for the amazing Prima Marketing Inc. I really love their products - even more so after being lucky enough to attend Prima Art Venture in Edmonton in 2015. I can't think of a single project that I don't have some kind of Prima product on and I would love the chance to get to play with more of their great stuff and to show it off to all my crafty friends.

My first area of creativity is the Craft Arena - Cards, Tags and Layouts.  Below are a couple of examples of tags and a layout I made showing my style and showcasing Prima products.  

First up is a tag I made for a doll tag swap - I have so much fun colouring the Julie Nutting dolls. They are so carefree and funky they just pop on anything they go on.

I make a lot of tags - this one is again for a swap. My partner loved it.

Layouts are something I really love to make - especially since I have so many photos of my adorable grandson. I love adding texture to pages now - a technique I learned at Prima Art Venture.

My second area of creativity is the Craft Arena - Home Decor and DIY. I love making projects to decorate my house as well as my store.

I was given a theme/set of items to inspire me for this project that was part of a design team that I was on at a local store that I shop at. It was supposed to be a 6 month term, but the owner unexpectedly had to close down. I loved the experience of being on a design team though and got to create this great project that still hangs on my wall.

My third area of creativity is the Craft Arena - Mixed Media and Altered Art. I think I do more of these types of projects than just about anything else. My walls are covered with canvases and most of my family and friends receive some type of altered art for gifts.

I create Mixed Media canvases quite regularly, and this one I made for a friend for her birthday. I used the new Memory Hardware Artisan Powders, along with the Relics and Artifacts and various sprays and flowers.

This is a mini canvas I made for myself, again using one of the Relics and Artifacts - the heart, and lots of Prima flowers.

As you can see I really love Prima flowers and I always add them to my projects.

Altered Art projects are really my favourite things to make. This is an altered CD and case I made again for a swap. It was a Steampunk theme so the new Finnabair Mechanicals Grungy Butterfliess were perfect. As were all the Prima Flowers - as always!


Many of my projects end up as gifts for family and friends - I made this piece for a friend for her birthday using the Prima Altered Metal Bike Frame.

As you can see I do a lot of swaps - I always sign up for the ones where you do an altered art or mixed media project of some type. I made this altered mouse trap that ended up going all the way to Australia! One of my favourite things about making swaps is sending them to my crafty friends all over the world.

My last area of creativigy is in the Craft Arena - Videos and Step by Step.  I have just started doing videos and am continuing to work to improve. I have been teaching various classes since I first started crafting and now that I am working on getting onto design teams. I am trying to improve my video and instructing skills.

This first video is of a project I created of a Fairy Lantern

My dress form tutorial was the first video tutorial I created.

I appreciate you taking the time to check out my blog and hope that Prima Marketing Inc. considers my application for their Design team. I look forward to continuing to use Prima's FABULOUS products for MANY years to come. Till next time stay crafty my peeps!!
