Prima October Product Picks and Challenge

October ushers in a new season filled with chilly nights, gorgeous falling leaves, and crisp apple harvest! (Unless you live in the southern hemisphere, then you have the exact opposite!) Either way Prima's fresh palette will bring a twist of warm richness to your projects.
Look for deep navy, cozy browns, aged copper metals, and a touch of time-proven leather! 

Once you get creating just enter your Prima-based projects on the Prima blog by clicking here. Be sure to use the blue inlinkz buttons under each challenge! 

The gorgeous textures shown in the palette this month inspired me to create a vintage layout of my beautiful Aunt Ruby.  I started with an 11x14 paintable as my base.  I used the rough Artisan Parisian leather paper to add texture to my page.  I added an 8x10 paintable to the center of the leather paper, then added 2.4 x 4 paintable tagsto the side of my photo.  I added color to my page using a chalk edger in Blue Jay. As a finishing touch, I added beautiful crystals and pearls and a sweet circle of cording to the top of my page.

I layered ephemera cards and with the leather paper that I looped and adhered to the page.
