The cheapskate's Prima Beauty Mark...










Saw the Prima Beauty Marks on a thread on UKS and thought they were really pretty then sort of did a double take at the price!! Yikes... so I got all my jars of Primas off the shelf and cut a rectangle out of a transparency and started sticking!! I also found out that you can, if you are very careful, use your Bejeweller on transparencies! Bonus!! So what do you think?? ;)


They are really easy to make and quite good fun too - who doesn't have heaps of little Primas sitting around in jars un-used?? I stuck them onto the transparency with 3D foam pads. I can see these appearing on all sorts of stuff in the near future!!
I thought I would add the latest one I made in black and white. I don't have any of those cool white primas with black spots and stripes so thought I would make my own and a little alphabet stamp and some black ink later.... Voila!! :)

  7. Those are gorgeous, especially love the stamped black and white primas on the first one. Might have to have a go at that myself. I still like glue and ink and stuff, even with my new toy lol x
