Happy Halloween Prima Syle


To all of my lovely OS friends HAPPY HALLOWEEN, and belated greetings to my Aussie friends for yesterday who celebrated Halloween.

Personally, we have never celebrated Halloween and I can honestly say that I have never been trick or treating LOL!!  But with saying this, I did have a whole lot of fun putting these Halloween inspired Prima projects together.

Make sure you hop on your broomsticks and zoom over to the Prima BLOG to check out the spook-tacular projects the DT have come up with for you all today.

In the meantime, I do have something a little spooky , a little bit wicked with a whole lot of PRIMA 'treats' to share today.

First up a little witch's 'couture' boot

I created the boot from black card stock and I have to confess that the constructing of it nearly did my head in LOL!!  It looked so much easier in my head than it turned out to be, let's just say that there was a LOT of tweaking,adjusting and just a couple of exasperated comments along the way... hehehe

Once the boot was assembled, it was embellished with an assortment of Prima Papers, Crystal Palace Vine and Splendor Leaves.

A splash of colour was added with a gorgeous Carlotta bloom and die cut pattered paper element which was misted a rich purple colour.

Some ornamental edging was added to finish off the top edge of the boot.

Ribbon bows adorn the back of the boot with Say It In Crystals scattered over the top of the bows.

#551834 Crystal Palace – Black Snow
#553555 Splendor – Rust

So we now have the boot, but no witch is complete without a hat - some of you will recall already seeing this

.... And I did have lots of fun creating this

Now, for me there is nothing really cute about the real life bat and quite frankly they freak me out... but even I couldn't resist these

This variety is pretty cute Hey??

I have combined Prima TRICK OR TREATS 'Night Flight' and 'Bat Vine' with AGLOW 'Black Magic' and a gorgeous CARLOTTA 'Royale' bloom.

A Paper Mache hat was first painted with black glitter paint with tulle then wrapped around it.

 Prima Black Magic leaves were layered around the base of the hat.   The metallic shades and sugar glitter make these leaves 'glow' with gorgeousness!

A few Prima Glitter Twisters were also added along with a 'Bat Vine'.

Ribbon Bows and a gorgeous Carlotta bloom finish the transformation.
