Sparkle with Prima - Lulupu Bloghop

Hello and thanks to those of you who hopped on over from Varah's blog. For those who didn't, let me quickly fill you in.

We have a month long bloghop combined with a challenge - Sparkle with Prima running at Lulupu. Criteria is pretty simple - create a project using Prima Marketing products (as many as you can) and add sparkle (being, glass beads, glass glitter, mica flakes, glitter, shiny sugar dots etc.)

There 6 prizes up for grabs. This post gives all the details of how you could win yourself some of these goodies and also takes you to the first post.

I'm very excited to share a tutorial on creating a 12x12 background to match the coffee break papers using my all time favourite techniques. If you want more details on any step, leave me a comment and ill be very happy to share what I know with you.

A note on the pink tissue in the first picture : a while ago, I was working with gold paint mixed with 3d gel and was left with excess. So applied it on a pink tissue and kept it to be used later.

Dont be afraid to use mists, watercolour pencils and inks all together in the same layout just to colour. Although they may all look the same or similar shade of pink, each lends a different effect.

After each layer of gesso and paint, I decoupage roses from the IKEA serviette. This lends depth to the background - some roses appear embedded deep within and some right on the surface.
Once the photo layers have been glued on, mix glass glitter and glass beads with gel medium and apply it on the layout. Sugar dots to complete it.

I hope to have inspired you in someway today. Here is the full list of projects created by the DT and GDTs who were invited specially for this hop. Don't forget to leave a comment here and on all the below blogs to be in the draw to win prizes. You also have time till the end of the month to link your entry for the challenge.
