FUL-KOM Happy!

Hello Paper fans!

Here is the second layout I made with the Flying Unicorn January KOM. The papers are by 13@rts the Secret Letters line and they are just gorgeous. I used the music note stencil with white 13@rts gesso and silver gesso with the sentiments stencil. 

One of the sheets of paper has all kinds of smaller tags, doilies and butterflies you can cut out, so I did that to create some layering for under my picture. 

The ribbon was small art big passion kit, I sprayed the big pink flower with the darker pink mist we got in the Mixed Art Kit. The title I covered with Finnabairs snow. 

And there you have it the second layout for my CT for Flying Unicorn. 
I was so glad my Sisters grandson had such cute Christmas photo's I could use for my first kit. The color scheme just worked perfectly with the kit.

Thank you for looking!

Below a list of items I used:

OTP-Coasters & Holder - Life is Sweet!

Hello Paper Fans!

I'm so proud and honored to be showing you all the projects I've made for the Flying Unicorn Creative Team!. The Kit this month is so beautiful. Romantic, shabby chic, or modern so many options, so many possibilities. Just check in regularly and you'll see ;)!

The Off The Page project this month is a Coaster set. Functional and pretty.
The 13@rts papers are a beautiful collection and I choose to cover both the coasters as the holder with them. The edges of the holder I first painted with gesso. After that was dry I mixed the 13@rts Silver Glitter painted with some of the Prima Mica powder we got in the KOM. It gives a little pink hue to the Silver glitter.

On the left hand side corner I decided to give it a torn scroll look so it needed 3 layers of different paper. All the elements in the kit are so nicely suited together. 

The back of the coasters I panted first with 2 layers of thick white gesso in a criss-cross pattern and after that 2 more layers in 13@rts matte silver paint again in a criss-cross pattern. It now was nicely coated. For the fronts I choose 4 different pieces of paper. Two in the grey colors and 2 in the pink/maroon colors. In the right bottom corner I used the stencil to spray 3 little butterflies on them in the opposite colors.

Decorating the box with some flowers, ribbon, a wooden element. It came together rather nicely. All it needs is a nice little tea set and we're good :)!

A little close up! 

Except for the big pinkish flower everything used was part of one if the kits.
I really enjoyed putting all this together. When I saw this, I almost instantly knew what I wanted to do with it. Loved the project. Hope you have as much fun with it as I did. 

Thank you for looking!

Have a scrap-tastic day!

Love This!

Hello all!

This is such a beautiful and if you want, versatile Kit. When you first look at it you think lots of pinks but there is so much more to the Flying Unicorn January KOM.
My niece sent me these cute pictures of her little boy Daan. It's his first Christmas and I just knew I had to use them for my first ever Creative Team designs. I hope I didn't disappoint.

I started out with using the Prima - Music bar stamp and stamped it in a cross, On the right side of the page. Fanning out toward the center. When that dried I used the 13@rts Stencil in the Mixed Art Kit with all the sentiments and basically used that same cross section to cover with paste. Now comes the fun and messy part. I splattered the Gold/Black/Silver/White Splash-water Inks over the same are, as the baby blue Inklingz. Just to tie-in all the colors from the picture.

The photo I matted with a frame we got from a previous kit and papers from the 6x6 stack part of the Small Art Big Passion Kit. A gold doily to off set the colors and tie it all together. From a previous kit I still had the metal Prima ornaments and they just looked wonderful with this. I changed the color of one of the pink flowers in the SABP Kit by painting it with the Gold Splash-Water Ink. I did the same with the Title.

I used some gold and white berries to compliment the photo. Used flowers from the kit and a couple from my stash.

A few more accents with the Splash inks on the flowers. 

And another close-up!

It's been a complete joy working with this kit. So many options. Can't help to go all festive this time of the year, and it doesn't even have to be pink as you can see.
