New Crown...

Hello everyone!
I am off to CHA is less than 24 hours! I catch a flight out tomorrow afternoon to Chicago to meet up with everyone. I have so much to do to get ready and it's already midnight...ugh!
No worries though-I always manage to get everything done before I leave. I also had to get Jack ready to leave for Camp, which meant running around to 10 different places to get what he needed.
I just wanted to share another project with you before I leave. It's another crown for the Prima booth. I swear-these are so much fun to make! And to wear too! I created the base from Prima packaging. I used Glimmer Mist on the background and then dry brushed gold paint over the surface.

I added German glitter glass to some leaves and placed them over some velvet leaves I had in my stash. The temple leaves really pull it together in the front with a gorgeous new bloom from Prima.
I habd painted a bunch of the flowers you see in blue. And then I added some rich color to some neutral flowers that matched.

Anything goes when making one of these. It can be any color combination, all kinds of textures can be added and just when you think you're done-add a little more for flair!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back after CHA with more projects and stories to share!
xoxo CAri
