Riddersholm & Authentique Inspiration from Flying Unicorn

Hi Everyone,

I am here today to share with you a layout I created using some lovely Riddersholm papers as well as Authentique papers which I received in my pack from the Flying Unicorn.

Now Riddersholm is a brand I haven't had much to do with so I was excited to get the chance to have a play.  I have used a piece of Authentique paper for my base and my layers behind my photo are made up of Riddersholm papers. Authentique papers are so super thick they make for a perfect sturdy background especially when applying mixed media products.

"Pure Sweetness"

For my background I have used a Memory Box Stencil (love these stencils) using some modelling paste.  I have then used some Tim Holtz Distress Paint in Salty Ocean which I just dabbed on in a few different places then I quickly sprayed some water over it.  Then with a small paint brush I moved the paint along my background to spread it out.  This is a great way to get the colour more even as well as toning down the colour.  

Lots and lots of gorgeous flowers...some Prima and some Petaloo.

And then ever so lightly I have sprayed in various places some Lindy's Stamp Gang mist in Fuzzy Navel Peach.

Products Used from the Flying Unicorn Store:

Prima Flowers - Abbey Blue
Silks Acrylic Paint - Solar Gold
Papermania Vintage Lace Boarders

Kaisercraft Stamp
Prima Stamp
Prima Vine, Buttons and letter stickers
Washi Tape and Tissue Tape
Gold Thread
