Painting with Prima







This month's kit is stuffed full of goodies to create your own masterpieces!! The Prima paintable paper is absolutely GORGEOUS!! And the beautiful watercolor pencils from the January "Scrap Kit" make your Prima just POP!!

To start, simply choose the colors you'd like and start coloring on the Prima paper (yes, it does bring make memories of elementary school!) Next, simply spritz the paper very lightly with the Ranger "Mini-Mister" included in the January "Therapy Kit"...be sure to not "over-wet" the paper (you can always spritz a little more as you go). Finally, using a paintbrush, lightly work the brush into the paint--allow to dry completely before adding embellies!!

On my "Got Cooties?" layout, I handcut the flowers from the Prima Paintables with my Xacto knife and attached it to my layout with glue dots--
