Each month we will challenge our Design team to create a project using five specific items. What colors they use and what they choose to make is entirely open to them. Such an open-ended challenge means that there is such a wide variety in what is created.
This month the 5 items were Art Stones, Stencils, 2 BIG numbers, a frame, Monochrome color scheme. Check out some of the gorgeous creations created with this month’s challenge!
I really like our blog challenges. They are always extremely inspiring and unique. I love seeing each of us approach the subject differently. Today I have for you a slightly dark project with many layers. It is quite simple, the composition is clear. I used one stencil in two ways. I applied 3D gel through it and got a pattern in the background. The liquid acrylic paint perfectly highlighted all the details. And the second way – I made a pattern on the frame using vintage gold wax. The whole was completed with mechanicals and elements from moulds. -Kasia

For my little MIXED MEDIA CANVAS I started off by creating a mixed media background with some stencilling& I also used some of the Art Alchemy paints like watercolors.I then set to the challenge that some of the design team girls played around with.
Now the challenge we were given was to create something & to use …….
#1. Art Stones
#3. To use some BIG numbers
#4. Use a frame
#5. Monochrome project
I really had fun doing this little challenge & this is what I came up with.
Perhaps you might like to do it also. If you do be sure to post it over on our “Create With Prima” facebook group for us to see, & remember, to have fun with it. Perhaps you could tag me so I can see what you come up with. Di

Challenges are always a great starting point when you just don’t know what to create. Which is why I decided to play along with our 5 Ingredients Challenge this month. I decided to stick with blue since it’s this month’s #Primacolorday. I started by using a bit of texture paste in the background of my hoop. Next, I added a cluster with Finn’s Grungy Frame. Once I had my cluster in place, I decided to turn it into a shaker. I hope you like it! -Lanette

Hi everyone, today we play with monochromatic projects. So, I decided to creating project with deep blue color and in vintage mood. To create the background I used one of my favourite stencil Gothic and so amazing mica powder. I mixed it with liquid color – fluid medium to get efect I like it. I used various moulds and a little bit of vintage silk wax. -Wuwu

I was excited about this challenge. I knew right from the start that my project was going to be purple. I love purple! I used a lot of Finnabair moulds and mechanical flowers. ReDesign’s Insectica & Stars mould was a perfect fit for this project. The result is exactly as I imagined. I hope you enjoy it too! -Sanna
