My Happy Place (Prima Marketing)

Dear crafty friends,

I'm here again today to share with you a layout I created with a product I recently discovered: Art Alchemy waxes!

I must admit I was skeptical at first: I've had waxes in the past and I didn't like how they looked when put on, they were thick so they didn't went on smoothly. But as soon as I tried the Prima ones, I fell in love! They are the perfect product to add a finishing touch to about everything, they smell so good and they are so smooth: they go on like butter. 

On my layout, I used two color (Art Alchemy - Metallique Wax - Bronze Age and Art Alchemy - Antique Brillance - Amethyst Magic) to alter raw chipboard and to add a bit of contrast to my paper edges. 

I also used the Amethyst Magic to color my leaves (cut with the Forest Leaves Dies in regular white cardstock) and Art Pebbles previously covered with a coat of clear gesso, to make sure the wax will stay on the pebble. 

I love how everything you touch with those waxes catches light and pops!

  1. Oh my Goodness! This is stunning!! Love how those waxes look! This is so beautiful!

  2. Beautiful page! I bought the waxes but still haven't tried them. You've inspired me to try them now. I love how you changed the color of the art stones too - didn't know you could do that. TFS
