DT Project #1 by Minxy : Featuring

Prima Almanac Collection

Hiya snazzy folks
As you know we have been working with the very beautiful new collection from Prima, 
And for my first project I decided to make an elegant little canvas purse/bag
I use Prima (Almanac) Collection 12x12 Papers, Prima Wood Buttons, Prima Art Tiles, Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Back Canvas, Tim Holtz Lavish Trim and some chain from my stash.
 To make the bag I used Claudine's sticky back canvas and her transfer technique which you can view on utube here.
 Once I had transferred the paper to the canvas I cut out a bag shape and assembled using some ultra clear tape, I attached some chain and then made a cardboard insert for the inside to give the piece some rigidity.
I covered the closure flap with lavish trim that I tinted with 'tea die' distress stain to match it in with the colours on the bag and finished with some of the Prima buttons and an art tile.
The perfect springtime accessory.
I'll be back on Wednesday with my next project
Till then Stay Inky

This is a gorgeous project Nicky and love the elegant design you chose from the paper selection. I have done a paper transfer onto Claudine's canvas but it was yonks ago and only a very small piece. I must check out that link and see if it's the same technique. If it is you deserve a medal transfering a piece that big but the result is so worth it.
