Some unexpected Prima!!!

When you say Prima to me - I think of Pretty , floral, flowery, pastel types of patterns and  papers.  SO  I was happily surprised to see the Prima  Craftsman Collection - a fabulous grungy style  set of papers  perfectly suited  to the  boys in my life!!!

So for this example I have  chosen a   fabulous   background paper called Mechanic.  I have then used  the  fabulous Crafters workshop template and some Texture  magic dimensional magic ( awesome at only $4.99 a tube  )  to add some additional   texture to the page.....



I have then cut some Black box paper and torn off the bottom  to give me a rough edge.  I have then roughly  wiped  all the  edges with my ink pad.  Tracy has an amazing array of ink in store - my  faves are  the Tim Holtz distress inks!!


I have then added some  widgets paper across the  first piece of paper.  I also cut out some of the pieces from the Craftsman Engineer paper and used these as random addons  under the existing  layers of paper.

I have also used some of the  yummy  chipboard  COGS that Tracy has instore.  I  have colored these with my inks and a sponge and adhered them  to the  sides of my photo.



I also cut out a journal box and tucked it in under the edge of my photo. 


I have then cut some small strips of the Tim Holtz film strip ribbon .  I SERIOUSLY  love this stuff and its awesome for boyish  layouts - well its  awesome  for any layouts  and I cant get enough of it !!!!












I also used a  Kraft bag with white tag    for my journalling.  I wanted this to fit in with the grungy feel of  the papers so I used my distress ink and wiped it around the edges and across the front of the envelope and also the tag for  added  grunginess!!  To this I have added a gorgeous  spanner!!
How gorgeous is that!!!!!
and here is the finished item!!!




head over to My2angels and take a look at these fabulous papers!!
