Prima Halloween with the Anna Marie Collection

You can see this project at the Prima Marketing blog, here

Halloween with Anna Marie - When I was a young girl, I would dress as a witch each year for Halloween, black hat and black dress.  Not very creative, I know, but simple.  I decided to take the beautiful, sweet Anna Marie collection and transform it into something spooky- to me this symbolizes the fun of trick'o'treat night.   The one night of the year that sweet little girls can transform into something different.

I started off with a plain paper mache hat from Darice that stands about 10 inches tall.  I covered in Anna Marie paper. I  added Prima stenciling to the brim of the hat in black embossing paste.  

Glued some black tulle trim to the edge of the hat and started to layer my embellishments.

I punched a hat band from Prima's All About Me collection - "Write Me" paper and topped it with some green tulle, green Web Weave trim and then black cheesecloth.   

A midst the Prima floral cluster, the button type shapes are Prima Mechanicals Vintage Center metal pieces.   I used a copper rub over them from Viva.

Here is a good shot of the Prima Mechanicals and the Viva Inca Gold copper rub that was used on the metal piece. The copper rub creates a wonderful effect on the metal.

Thanks so much for stopping.
