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 :)
