~~ TA/Prima Hop: 2 for 1! ~~

Posted by Ania On Thursday, September 01, 2011

Hi and welcome – did you know there’s a blog hop going on? No? Well, now you do ;)

Prima and Tattered Angels decided to do a giveawaythingy, and have a bloghop with inspiring projects from the design team while at it. Here’s my contributions.


You see, I originally made a layout (the 2nd one in this post), wasn’t entirely happy but thought ahwell, but then I got to see peeks of the other girls’ stuff and I was like. Oh. Crap. I need to up my efforts. And made this one instead. Then decided to share both, cause…well, some people might like layout #2 more than layout #1 and vice versa. So, there you go. 2 for the price of 1! Or something like that :p


I colored this Ruby Violet stamp w/Tattered Angels mist – Jazz Blue and Tattered Rose.


I cut a too long strip of this Prima rose-ribbon once, leaving one rose dry…figured I better put it to use on this one, I love the green color of it!


I can see myself using this particular stamp more than once! So cute! Haaa, I’m so funny ;p


Here, this was the original layout I made for this hop..

A sheet of paper from Pixie Glen (layout #2 contains leftover-scraps from this sheet of paper =) ), lots of alterable canvas pieces, my favorite new bling (this one is truly sparkly), romantic butterfly, amazing canvas letters (loves), cute miniflowers and hey, look at that lovely resinbird!


Jazz blue and patina must be my favourite colors from Tattered Angels, along with Iridescent Gold. Both are used here – the blue here is jazz blue (Patina is pretty close – I usually just grab whicever of these bottles which’s closest to me when I want that color), and the iridescent gold is used on the paper for a subtle golden shimmer. Bummer that it rarely shows on photos :(


I also attempted to paint the chest of this bird with jazz blue, I think it worked pretty well :)
