Prima Optimist

I would like to share a canvas I made using Prima Optimist papers and the Prima doll with Bolero dress.  I love this paper and I purchased all the embellishments I found as soon as I saw it online.  Just couldn't wait!  My very generous friend Cathylynn shared some Prima dolls with me and a perfect canvas was created! Well in my ability anyway! lol

The Prima Optimist paper is a 6x6 pad and I only used 3 pieces of it. The doll was cut from the other patterned papers from the pad.  All the flowers, flairs, tabs and wood pennants are from Prima. Fun!

The tabs look like this and I attached them to white envelopes and adorned it with ribbons and crystals I already had. The envelopes are glued under the paper. 

On this side of the canvas I took a mask of a tree and bird and used moulding paste with white paint to make it. I attached the flairs and florals to the three and the 1 plastic heart.

I made this tag from Sizzix TH tag die. I glued it over the paper and filled it with florals, flairs, buttons, heart pearls, and beads. 

Here is the bottom of the canvas and the words on the papers are so awesome. The title of the collection 'Optimist' is truly the right description for all the positive words and sayings on these papers.

Here is the tag, the Bloom is part of the papers.

Here is the ribbons I hung with charms off the tag, the end has another tab on it.

The Prima girl is cut from Prima Optimist papers and the main body is from another paper I had.  I painted her hair and shoes.

Here is a better view of the tabs and envelopes 

I have a blank wall in my craft room "Shame" so this one is the first to go on it, I have a lot more to make! 

I hope you enjoyed my canvas and all the positive words on it. Thank you for all the awesome comments you leave me to, I really enjoy reading them!
Have a great day,
