You guys.... I can't believe I am even about to write these words but little old me has been added to the amazing Prima marketing design team!!! 

I'm so honoured to be part of such an inspirational team of extremely talented crafters from all over the world.. And to be representing Ireland.

So ever since I bought my Prima loom from I have been addicted.... I love yarns-all the different colours and textures and making up these weavings is a joy! 

I have been posting photos of my weavings on my Instagram pieces_by_aideen but here are a few of them:

I am so looking forward to my time on the Prima DT and can't wait to make some fun weavings-I'm so ready for this....

Altered oil bottle

Here is the before and after of an oil bottle I altered for a swap-I used gesso first and then paint and tissue paper and lots of prima goodies including gold foil bloom spray, prima flowers, leaves, vine and copper metals. I also added shipping string around the neck with a Tim Holtz token hanging from the string.

I am going to enter my bottle into the Prima June challenges which you can check out HERE

I have some close up pics here and also a video of how I made the bottle and I would love you to check that out.

This close up shows all the prima embellishments and you can see how I added some plaint and the prima bloom spray to those too.

Here is the video:
