Then head on over to our blog for more details!

Below is my project that I have created using the gorgeous Timeless Collection from 13@rts as well as the Blue Matte Paint, Pearl Navy Blue Mist, 13@rts Gesso and Modeling Paste.

"Our Time Together"

Some close ups...

Gorgeous flowers are from Prima and Petaloo, chipboard cogs are 2Crafty and the metal cogs from Prima.  

Metal adornments are from the Flying Unicorn which I have touched up using Lindy' s Stamp Gang Grab a Guy Gold mist and Luminarte Silks Acrylic GlazeSolar Gold

Ooops I even got some mist on my photo...oh well all part of the process :))

Here is a few tips from me when creating a mixed media type project.

1.  When it comes to masking, don’t always think you have to use gesso or modelling paste.  In this layout I have used the 13 arts Matte Blue paint along with a makeup sponge over a stencil to create a different effect.  Add some doodling around the shapes to make them stand out.

2.  To create a water colour effect on the background of your project, spray your favourite 13 arts mist on a plastic bag, scrunch the bag up and randomly press it down on your background.

3.  Highlight your embellishments using your mist.  Take the top off your mist bottle, using a fine paint brush paint around your embellishments to create a shadow effect.

Flying Unicorn February KOM - Part 2

Hello my crafty friends :))

I am back today to share with you another couple of projects I created using the Febuary KOM at Flying Unicorn. Such gorgeous papers in this kit and the add ons have beautiful complimentary embellishments.

I decided to have a bit of fun with this one and create a heart arrow.  I have misted the fringed paper and the metal heart along with some Kaiser flowers using 13arts Chalk Burnt Sienna mist. Lost of mixed media layers in the background...Gesso, modelling paste, Shimmerz, Gelatos and more 13arts mist.

"Perfect Moment" 

The chipboard title is also from 13arts which I dipped my finger into some Jilted Jade Shimmerz and ran along the bottom of the letters.

Ahhh my sweet little man at 8 weeks old...time is going too quick..wish I could find a pause button!

And a couple of tags I created as well...

And look whats happening later on this week!! Mark you diary..this is an event you don't want to miss! I can't wait!!

Till next time..
Thanks for visiting :)

Flying Unicorn February Kit - Part 1

Hi Everyone :)

I am here today to share with you a couple of projects I created using the February KOM at Flying Unicorn. The main kit and the add ons are just amazing and its full of gorgeous papers and mixed media products which you can find HERE. In this layout I have used some Inkido papers along with 13arts Gesso, 13arts Pearl Sky Blue mist, 13arts chipboard. 

"Timeless Moment"

The honeycomb chipboard and the title are from 13arts...aren't they just gorgeous!

The Petaloo flowers are included in the kit but the the Prima and Manor House flower are from my supplies.

The kit also came with these Maya Road Envelopes.  I created this tag and adhered it to the envelope so that I could also enclose a note to the recipient.

Well that's all for me for today.  
Hope you all have a great week, I will be back soon with some more projects using this kit.
Thanks for visiting :))
