Flying Unicorn & Manor House Creative Team Projects

Hello to you all :)
I have two projects to share with you today.  Flying Unicorn stocks some of the gorgeous Manor House products which you can find HERE.
I wanted to share a layout I completed recently for Manor House Creations using the very gorgeous "Beautiful You" paper collection as well as lots of stunning blooms!

This paper range begs to be fussy cut so I cut out some of the flowers in the paper and arranged them on my layout. I used plain white cardstock for the base...which is so unlike me...but these colours look amazing and so crisp against a white background.

Also, this is my last creation for Manor House as I have stepped down from my position for personal reasons.

"Time Flies"
Melinda Thompson - August 2014

Some closes ups.....love the hot pinks and bright yellows together.  I have mixed a matched flowers from new and past releases, the different sizes and styles look amazing together.  I have also used a Felt Doiley in Hot Pink and a lace flower (Lullaby) to add layers behind my photo.

Love these chipboard frames which you can find HERE in the store.  I have altered them by priming with Gesso first then adding some Shimmerz Inklingz in Pink a Boo and then while it was still wet I sprinkled it with some Shimmerz Enamalz in Gold Digger...its so sparkly.. :) Then for added interest I added on some cute little chipboard hearts up the side.

The background was also created with a 6 x 6 Crafters Workshop Template - Crossed and 13 Arts Modelling Paste and then a combination of Shimmerz Inklingz in Gosh Garnet & Pink -A-Boo

My next layout I created using a mix of different manufactures.  I love to mix and match. I have used Pion Papers from the A Day in May Collection, Riddersholm Papers from Tailgated Marked Collection, Finnabair Vintage Vanity A4 Papers and a piece of Authentique paper from the Accomplished Collection all can be found in the Flying Unicorn Store. I love the strong bold colours in this layout...something a little different for me :)

"Perfect Addition"
Sweet stunning flowers from Petaloo and Prima...I just adore lots of flowers on my layouts.

The Leaf Chipboard is from Fabscraps which I painted in Silks Acrylic Paints in Teal Zircon as well as some Flying Unicorn Metal Adornments.

Hope you are all well...
Thanks for stopping by :)

13 Arts Fly Away Collection - Flying Unicorn

Good Morning to you all,

Hope you all had a lovely and relaxing weekend :)

I am back again to share with you a layout I created using some very gorgeous 13 Arts papers from the new Fly Away collection which you can find HERE.

I have also teamed it up with a stunning piece of 13 Arts Doiley chipboard.  Don't be afraid to cut your chipboard up...here I have cut the doiley into 4 pieces to create a circular flow to my layout.


I have painted the chipboard with 13 Arts Gesso layering it on my base and then then on my photo.

I have added some beautiful Prima and Petaloo flowers to my doiley cluster along with some Flying Unicorn metal adornments. The title of my layout is also from 13 Arts...its is part of the Word Accents set.

Once I had this all in place, I added lots of mediums for further enhancement.  I have used on my chipboard, Prima Color Bloom spray in Soft Teal, Lindy's Stamp Gang Glitz Shots in Medieval Gold and Gecko Green.  For some final touches and some sparkle I used some Shimmerz Blingz in Gold Glimmer.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Till next time...
