Creating a Flower Cluster Using Prima Embellishemnts

I was digging through a box a pictures at my mom's house and came across one of myself from 1993.  I was 13 years old, and in the 8th grade. I so did not look my age.  My mom took me to this place called Glamor Shots. They did your makeup, hair, dressed you, posed you, and took "glamor" pictures of you.  I still remember all the hairspray they used, but that was the thing to do at the time. I am even sporting the high front wave of hair above my forehead.

I used a Prima mask and molding paste on the background paper, then inked it with Prima Chalk inks and Mr. Huey's Mists. I placed a doily on top (also inked with Prima inks to create a double doily effect.

I love to cluster embellishments - Prima birds nest, Prima Flowers, Prima Pin, Prima Resin, etc.  Layer them on top of each other and tuck some under the larger ones, add some Prima leaves, and Prima pearl swirls and you have a wonderful cluster.

To buy most of these wonderful items please visit Flamingo Scraps.

  1. So, so pretty! I love all the layers! I like how you used the sign post to add the year, too.

  2. Love it! I should dig out my old Glamor Shots pic and scrap it! I wasn't as young as you - I was about 21 when I went for the first and only time.

  3. Very pretty and I love all the detail that you used. Colors are just awesome!!
