Snazzy DT Project #1 Prima Engraver Collection

Good morning everyone Gillian here to kick start another month of projects for Snazzy's. If you read yesterdays post you may have saw that we are working with the scrummy Prima Engraver Collection ( I can tell ya we all did a happy dance when we received this kit) ... and its available online now either individually or as a collection. Can't wait to see what the design team create with this kit.

Now you know I love all things Studio 490 by Wendy Vecchi so it will be no surprise when I tell you my base for this project is a Studio 490 Art Parts SweetHeart Frame perfect I thought for these papers.

I started out by deciding what cardstock I wanted to use to cover the main heart shape, I was immediately drawn to the boldness of the Atlas sheet, simply trace round the heart and cut out, I then used Cosmic Shimmer Glue to adhere the cardstock, then chose collage images from different papers. Instead of using the apperture in the centre of the heart I opted to use it as a feature to the left of the heart. 


In this collection there are the most yummy paper roses, I have sprayed mine with Dylusions Spray (Black Marble) then highlighted areas with Treasure Gold (Classic)

 
 The "Memories" stamp is from the Engraver Cling Mount Stamp Set.


I finished off by adding more Treasure Gold around the edges of the heart then adding some eye hooks & metal chain to hang the heart .... perfect gift for Valentines day me thinks!


The ruler images are from the Cartouche sheet which have been trimmed to size. The numbers are from the Engraver Cling Mounted Stamp Set which have been inked using Archival Ink (Jet Black).


and *unlike me* some Crystal Bling to jazz things up .... (also included in the collection).

To be in with a chance of winning this collection simply leave a comment HERE.

Until next time ....

You are so right about the happy dancing Gillian. This is a fabulous kit and I'm chuckling here because I finished my first piece about an hour ago and I've used the same paper design and some Art Parts, lol! It's totally different to your lovely project though (phew!). I love how you've brought in all the different elements to make this a very interesting piece and it's definitely the perfect Valentine gift for some lucky fella!

Hugs

Beryl said...

Fabulous heart. Got the message across with the heart shape but not all 'lovey dovey' which would be my style if I had a go at a project like this. Love it.
The kit looks brill.

Great fabby Valentine's piece Gillian, and like others have said, a perfect gift without being too sweety/sweety. Guys would actually love this! Great use of all the papers and stamps. I bet lots and lots of folks will put their name in the hat for this DT kit!

Great kit Gillian, and your project is fab. The papers give the whole thing enough masculinity but the addition of the black flowers and bling add a great touch of romance.

Love this kit. The papers are suitable for men but the embellishments pop it straight back to feminine. The projects so far are all great.

Hi Gillian, this is my first visit to your blog after being on Astrid's site where she was telling us about her project on here which I just had to pop over to see. Astrid's project is amazing, I love what she has done with this collection. I have obviously had a nosey round your site and I love it!! Needless to say I am so glad to have found you and will be visiting on a regular basis from now on.
