There’s a chill in the air, Jack Frost is nipping at our noses, and creating beautiful ice-scapes on windows. Today our designers will show you how to create that gorgeous, metallic + frosty effect with a few Prima products.
“I was going for a frosty, snowy effect in this canvas. I used an old photo as my inspiration and made a composition around the little skier. I chose to use “Lavender Frost” as my paper collection as those icy, dreamy tones seemed so fitting to the project. ” ~ Riikka
“I started by collaging some papers and old book pages to the background using Soft Matte Gel, adding white gesso on top, and then started creating dimensional layers. My main composition is done using 3D Gloss Gel, my trusty adhesive, but I also used that as base for a texture paste I created with Micro Beads and glitter. Icing paste and Metallique paint in “White Pearl” bring delicate shine to the canvas.”
“If you want to see how I made the project, please see the video below. Wishing you a white and dreamy holiday time!”

“Hi, Creative Friends!
Can you hear the big holidays coming ? I’m a little stressed right now, because I don’t have even a Christmas tree and gifts for my family yet. Luckily, I had time for my dear Prima and I managed to create a festive mixed media canvas in advance with gold, silver and white colours. And what about you? What colour palette did you choose to decorate the Christmas tree?” ~ Anastasija
