What’s one thing you are guaranteed to find in a craft room? Scissors! Unless you need a pair then I can assure you there will be none to be found. I don’t know what it is about scissors but when you need them you can never find them. If you are like most of us, you’ve got at least a dozen lying around that you can’t find. So what better way to pay homage to missing scissors than turn them into art?
I love the projects with original and old-found objects. So, this time I used a found rusty can and amazing old scissors. I decided to put these things together with amazing Prima Marketing products. It doesn’t matter what kind of items you mix it with because the Prima marketing products work so perfectly with all kinds of projects. I think you’ll agree with me 🙂 –Wiola

Hello there, Di Garling here with you with a little mixed media project I have created for our “Altered Scissors” challenge.After thinking long & hard about it I decided I would alter some large chipboard scissors & add them to a little canvas. I created a double-decker canvas & did some nice soft pastel mixed media on it. I then proceeded to alter absolutely everything on this canvas with various mediums, “Watercolour Confections” & also some “Finnabair Waxes” too. Layering & adding textures was the order of the day. I have used some older Prima flowers but I thought they were perfect for my project & also this doiley which I diecut from an older Prima die cut. It is my most favorite one. Hope you like it. – Di

In this project, I wanted to show what I like to create the most and what style I love. There are mechanicals here, there are elements from moulds. I highlighted all the elements with white wax and opal magic paint, and finally I added a little glow with mermaid effect paste. I made a pattern on the blade of the scissors using a stencil and a 3d gel. I like very much when the pattern is transparent, it gives more possibilities than white modeling paste. –Kasia

Hello everybody, Marinette here today. I have this new layout to share with you. This is my version of the altered scissors and I hope you’ll like it. I decided to make my own pair of scissors from cardstock that I painted with watercolors. And for the background, I used the beautiful Watercolor Flower paper pad and added some mixed media and flowers. –Marinette

Have you ever wondered what a pair of scissors can symbolize? The image of this object has different meanings. For some, this subject means a break with the past and a new beginning. For others, scissors symbolize marriage and relationships. Personally, I see two halves of a whole. These halves are connected, complement each other and cannot exist without each other. Just like two “soul mates.” That’s why my scissors look like this.
What would your scissors look like? –Marina

Hi everyone! I wanted to approach this project from a sensitive angle. I used light and subtle colors. The scissors remind me of a butterfly, so it was obvious that there would also be a brave and beautiful butterfly in my work. And where there are butterflies there are also flowers. The flowers in the Nature Lover Collection were like created for this project. I hope you like it! – Sanna
