April'sPrima PPP, Inspire

Hi everybody! It's a beautiful new month and I have for you today a practical storage solution for your Prima Watercolor Pencils!  Their new PPP is out for the month of April and it's one of the most fabulous, bright color palettes out there! Right up my alley so I had to play!

I had purchased this wood bin thinking maybe I could house all my watercolors in one place.  When I placed them inside I couldn't believe it was a perfect match!

I had used my artExtravagance white crackle paste but not this heavy, I patiently waited a whole day to come back to my work station to find the most beautiful and deep cracks ever today...

I then proceeded to rub the fabulous mica powder in pink in those beautiful cracks,
I also painted the exposed wood with more raspberry color to match the mica powder.  The shimmer here is amazing, have you tried them yet?

For the sides of my bin I used some recycled packaging from Julie Nutting's etched wood ornaments, they were just the perfect size for this project and I happened to have saved the 3 I had used ;) go Earth!

For my embellishments I used some Bloom Girl metal flowers, some Finnabair Vintage Trinkets and I also die cut a metal flower from Prima's purple dies.

And here's my finished piece, I love it and hope it inspires you to make your own!

 Are you loving those micro beads...
