Prima Vintage Trinkets

Prima has come out with a brand new product and I'm in LOVE! They have released some charms and trinkets that are gorgeous. I've had so much fun playing with them. This next project is probably one of my all time favorites that I've done. I love how it turned out!



First, let me share how ugly the frame was before I got my hands on it.



I bought several of these at a thrift shop for a quarter a piece. My girlfriend was with me and couldn't see what on earth I was going to do with them. I told her I had the vision. LOL.

So, I painted it with cream painted and highlighted it with Lumiere Pearl White. Then I added some paper and created the tag. I used all new Prima goodies on here, but the trinkets were my favorite part. They are brass colored, so I painted them with the some paints and added a bit of ink to give them a shabby look.




I also added a bit of paint to the trim, which tied it in nicely.

Here's a keychain I made using the trinkets in their 'natural' state.



Be sure to check the Prima blog daily. There are so many awesome sneak peeks going on and the team has been cranking out gorgeous projects!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. :)

This is so pretty. I need to try painting. I'm so used to stamping. Painting can't be that much different...maybe :-).
