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 Metal Flakes, Yellow Flowers, Fussy Cutting Leaves, Prima Chipboard, Crackle Paste. Check out some of the gorgeous creations created with this month’s challenge!
“Challenges are the perfect time to get out of your comfort zone and create something different than usual. This month I wanted to create something delicate and feminine. I decided to combine yellow flowers with lavender on the background. The metal flakes on the cracking paste look great and create a very interesting texture. The composition is mainly cut flowers, mold casting, yellow flowers and mechanicals.” – Reniferove

“I love our “5 Ingredients/Different Ways” DT challenge each month! For my background, I used Paper Paste through a stencil and then spread some White Crackle Paste here and there. I went over that with Brown Rust Paste and Sparks Acrylic Paint in Night Shadow. I added Guilding Glue with a paintbrush randomly and along the edges of the tag. When that was tacky, I applied Finnabair’s Metallic Flakes in Gold. I just love the way it covered the texture on my tag! To finish off the requirements for the challenge, I used Prima Decorative Chipboard, yellow flowers from the Diamond Collection, and fussy cut leaves from the Watercolor Floral Collection!” –Shannon

I really liked the challenge we got this month. Flowers haven’t been featured too often in my designs lately, but how do I resist these Prima beauties? The imposed color of the flowers – yellow – determined the colors of my entire project. This warm yellow shade goes well with purples and browns, creating a beautiful autumn atmosphere. I made an artwork full of layers, combined the delicate flowers with the strong colors of liquid acrylic paints, and finally added a little purple glitter. It was very good to reach for the flowers again, maybe they will stay with me for longer. –Kasia

Hello everyone! How often do you keep packaging? Sometimes I do. This box from Prima flowers have been waiting for my inspiration for a long time and finally, I decided to make a canvas from it. How I did it you may see in the video tutorial that I prepared for you.~ Nadya Drozdova
