Creating mixed-media projects is so fun, especially with a shaped base! Today three of our Prima experts share their spin on a LIGHT BULB! We would love to have you share your LIGHT BULB creations with us as well. Please tag us when you post them so we can send some <3 your way!
BREATHE OUT by Iwona
“Light bulbs are one of my favourite forms. I love to use them as a base, add small light bulbs to my projects, or even use a real one as a part of a composition. Today, I made a mixed-media, marine-themed light bulb with some steampunk and patina touches.” -Iwona

OWN YOUR STORY by Kasia
“The light bulb theme is a great start to a mixed-media project. In my artwork, I used a light bulb base that I filled with lots of elements. Everything was covered with black Gesso before I started playing with colors. Thanks to great waxes, I obtained very multi-layered and interesting effects. Thanks to these, even the smallest elements have been emphasized, creating a beautiful depth.” -Kasia

SHINE YOUR BEAUTY by Di
Hi there Prima fans! Di Garling here with you on the blog today.
So, today some of the design team girls were sent the challenge of creating a project inspired by LIGHT GLOBES, so this is my interpretation of this challenge. I have created a little mixed media “reverse canvas” & it features a large chipboard “light globe”, as well as a small light globe embellishment too. I hope you like it!
For my mixed media background I have stenciled, troweled on some gorgeous “Crackle Paste”, added some gorgeous watercolours on my background, then set to work on the actual Light Globe itself.
For the Light Globe I coloured it with Prima Wax Paste followed by a generous coat of the “Jewel Effects Paste”. Oh my goodness, this paste is amazing in real life, soooo sparkly, as well as added texture!
I have added lots of flowers & a vine from various Prima collections, a sweet little butterfly, some fibers, some fussy-cut elements from the “Watercolor Floral” paper collection, some Art Stones & Pearls & then finished off with a couple of chipboard stickers & some bling. Voila! All done.
I hope you like it and maybe even draw some inspiration from it.

So Much Texture by Wiola
Do you like texture? If so, you have to try the White Sand Texture Paste! This paste is really perfect to create an amazing background. I simply love it. I used this paste to create the cover for my next junk journal. If you make great background, you don’t need many embellishments. An interesting element like texture can be enough.
