Prima - August CAT Challenge - Love!


Hello Paper Friends!

Another month and another fabulous sketch from Rikka Kovasin at Prima Marketing for the Card and Tag challenge. I've been enjoying them a lot since they started. Here's my third entry. I hope you all like it. 

I went for an older collection paper. The Epiphany Collection was one of my favorite. I'm sure the new Rossi Belle will take it's place soon. I mostly followed the sketch as my interpretation.


I fuzzy cut some small parts from one of the 6x6 ages and used the darkest page as my background. I used gesso as a whitewash and with the stencil. 


Once this was dry I used the Color Bloom spray to create a drip effect and some splatter.



One of the little sheets has little labels, so I went with the peach/orange color as the contrasting color and cut that one out and a larger piece of the similar background.


Now it's time for the flower arrangement and for such a small projects it's funny that I managed to use flowers from a few different collections. They do work nicely together. 


For a final detail some splatters. 

Below is the list with used items:

Prima - Epiphany - 6x6 pad - 846961
Prima - Heavy Gesso - 961442

FUL-MTW-Time with you - Our Day - Best Friends!



Hello Paper friends!

Thank you for letting me share with you another today post! 
For this layout I used our very own wonderful Flying Unicorn - Your Passion Your Art August Kit!
There was so much in the kit this month and it gives us so many options to work with. 
 Also submitting this layout into the More Than Words Challenge for August. 
The link for the challenge blog is here: More Than Words Blog


I actually wanted to use the sheet with all the details as the back ground but since I used all the fuzzy cut pieces on several projects I went and looked through all my papers and found a similar page to substitute. Since it only showed a small edge, problem solved. 
I made the edges wet of the pink page to make it easier to distress the edges. 
A friend of mine had gone to one of the latest Tim Holtz classes and came back with one of his newest stencils not for sale in the shops. She gave it to me, so I feel very lucky!  
I used it on this layout with a combination of Gesso and Modeling paste. Once dry I used 2 different prima stamps to bring in some more back ground details.


Now that the background is done it's time to start with the layers. I cut some pieces from the Lemoncraft - Just Love Me - 04 sheet and I had a piece left over from a Studio 75 sheet. Using the strips that were cut off the striped paper as part of the layering as well. Sliding in a doily and the new Snipart Chipboard pieces. The color scheme fits perfectly with the Prima - Garden Fable chipboard pieces, so I added some of those to my layout too.  


The flowers in the kit this month are a perfect match to all the colors in the paper. I love making these arrangements. It's the complete package. Love the little flowers. 


Adding the titles, some final touches like the lace and jute and the layout is complete.

So for this blog post just pictures no explanations. I'm not giving away any of the fabulous things she teaches you. You'll have to experience them for yourself.


I'd recommend taking a class if she ever visits a local store, you will use these techniques for years to come in many many Mixed Media Projects.

FUL - August - True Love!



Hello my paper and Uni friends!

Sharing with you another layout made with the wonderful August Flying Unicorn kit.


The colors in this kit are all my favorites. The papers are just gorgeous and sometimes you don't need to do a whole lot to a page to make it work.


I used a stencil with some paste for the background. I had fuzzy cut a piece from one of the other pages as a background piece. The Creative Embellishment pieces I covered with liquid pearl. Bringing out the colors of the paper. A simple arrangement with a few flowers and a doily. Some splatters and this layout was all done.


Thank you so much for looking!

Heart & Soul



Hello Uni Friends! 
Sharing with you a layout made with our Flying Unicorn - August - Your Passion Your Art Kit

So how do we make a boy layout with all these pinks and incorporate the little gears we got in the kit. That was kind of the challenge set at the start.
The kit came with these beautiful paper collections. Lemoncraft - Just love Me & Studio 75 - Alice's Dream. They work so well together.


I chose my background paper from the Lemoncraft collection and my second paper from Studio 75. This one I tore into strips and layered them, adding some chipboard for padding. Distressing the edges some as well. 
The background needed a little something so I picked out a stamp set from 7 Dots and inked some parts of the paper. After this I mixed some Gesso with pink paint and used it on a stencil. I did not want the mixture to be perfect so the white and pink looked sort of unmixed. The same effect I used with the blue and a different stencil. The blue in this case was a spray of mist. 


Before I could go any further it was time to prepare some of my other products I needed for my layout. I used some mist on cheesecloth to give it some color and for the chipboard pieces I first needed to coat them with gesso. Once that was dry I used 2 mist colors on the chipboard pieces.  


Now it was time to assemble the rest of the layout. 
I used a chipboard piece from Prima to frame my photos. Put some lace under the edge of the paper and draped the cheesecloth across the page. The little gears found their place on either side of the photos. I can not believe this little boy is now a 23 year old man. How time flies. He's an engineer now. I cut 2 straws in little bits and used a few pieces, splattered some white gesso over the page and it was all done. 


Thank you so much for looking!

FUL - August - OTP - Paradise, this way!




Hello paper and Uni friends!
Sharing with you my latest project, the OTP from the gorgeous Flying Unicorn KOM. 



This month it's a cute little boat. I started with coating the boat with a thin layer of white Gesso. After that I glued paper from the Studio 75 - Alice's Dream 6x6 collection. It was perfect, since it looked like wood. To age the paper I used some of the Bobunny paste and after that the Steampunk copper paint. All using the dry-brush method. 


For the front of the boat I used a stencil with the paste. It creates an interesting surface. The inside of the boat and the peddles were also dry-brushed with the Steampunk Copper. Now that all this preparation work is done it's time to decorate the boat. I used a spool and added rope on there, a birdcage, flowers, chains, anchor, some netting, shells, street-signs and cheesecloth.

It was a lot of fun to create this little scene.

Studio 75 - Alice's Dreams 6x6 collection

Prima - Texture Powder - 963699
