Prima Garden Fable Canvas

  Prima's Garden Fable  Collection
You can see the original Prima post here

This collection may very well be the most versatile collection Prima has made.  The colors range from soft and tranquil to happy, bold and playful.    I've done the soft and tranquil route on a recent card I made for Prima as shown below.  You can see  the full post here with close ups.

For this post, however, I decided to step out to a place I seldom go....the land of bold color. Why?  Because the colors and graphics on this collection are gorgeous, fun and make me smile.  They feel totally happy.  I thought I'd work with the bold colors and make a canvas - paring Prima's fun Color Blooms Mists and Watercolor Pencils with the collection.

I also felt the tags and journal cards on this collection were really amazing and I wanted to utilize them. The background of the canvas was created using Prima's Color Bloom Mists in Boysenberry and Gilded.  The Gilded adds that gorgeous orange touch.  I also added a bit more color using the Prima watercolor pencils.  They work so nicely on canvas. 

Here are my tips and techniques:
I also accented with Prima's micro beads.  They have been attached to the canvas with Soft Gel Medium.   I simply paint the gel medium on and sprinkle  the micro beads on while the gel is wet.  this acts like a wonderful adhesive. 

Thanks so much for sharing a moment with me.
