Prima and Tattered Angels Blog Hop

Hello friends!
Welcome to my blog for the Tattered Angels and Prima blog hop!


Tattered Angels and Prima are partnering again to share some fabulous ideas on how to incorporate their products into your projects...

I created a wreath that it is perfect for the upcoming holiday season and of course you can change the colors to fit your own color scheme to work with your home decor. This is really easy to do!

I colored Prima's Kraft packaging (from our Clear Paintables Collection) with Tattered Angels Apple Glimmer Mist. I love the dark olive tones with the soft pearl shine that it created. It's fun to experiment with various colors on neutral backgrounds to see the different results. All of the cones are glued onto a styrofoam wreath base.

I stamped the the word using large Alpha letters onto a cream paper strip and embossed with gold powder. The center paper is accordian folded paper strips from Prima's Fairy Flora Collection. You can build as many layers as you see fit to create the look you are going for!

If you would like to see how I made a similar version of this and for other wreath ideas, watch my video here: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/10944334



I clustered the flowers with sprigs of leaves and swirled crystals. The swirled crystals are colored with Glimmer Glam to add sparkle and customize the color I needed. I used Prima's Temple Leaves, Winter Branches, Roosevelt Flowers, Grande Dame Flowers and Glitter Sprays in Gold. It is fun to mix and match lush flowers with a variety of leaves and branches.


Here you can see a close up of the colored Kraft packaging and more crystal swirls that have been colored!
And at the end of the project, finish off the entire projects with light sprays of Wheatfields Glimmer Mist for an aged look!



This project was so fun to create! I hope it inspires you to create one of your own or maybe even as a gift for someone with a new home or for the holidays...

Gorgeous Cari! I've been thinking a lot about you wondering how you faired with the weather from Irene. I know you are in upstate New York somewhere, but wasn't sure if your area was hit with flooding. Thanks for sharing your wreath it is really beautiful. I've never tried to make anything like this.
